  • Getting Ready for Back to School Blog Hop


    Living-With-Style-Blog-Hop-for-Blog, fathers day blog hop

    Welcome to our July Blog Hop!

    This month we are focusing on going Back to School. Get ready for some great ideas, inspiration, tips, resources and how-to as you move along through the blog hop.

    You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from #9 Brandy VanDeKop at The Dutchman’s Wife on our Living with Style Blog Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you make sure to see and learn from all of the articles featured here today.

    Today I wanted to share one of my favorite things to do for my daughter and the free and fabulous resource for it! I love writing my little girl lunch love notes. It’s become a thing for us to do. Even when I don’t think she notices, she does. I use to use Project Life cards or scraps from crafting until I stumbled upon a blog post on the Jones Design Company blog with free lunch note templates…. and I love them!!! The design is too perfect and seriously all I do is print and cut a bunch and I’m ready to go.

    I really do enjoy stocking up, prepping and getting all my ducks in a row way before school actually starts so that I enjoy going back to school and ease into that schedule that much easier too!

    Living with Style Linky Party


    Hello friends! Welcome to The Living With Style Linky Party! You may have seen our Living With Style Blog Hop that is the last Wednesday of each month. We share ideas for crafts, recipes, DIY and other awesome things. Now, it’s your turn, we want to see what you are up to. Do you have an idea, project or recipe you would like to share? Then you are in the right place!

    Each week a different host will choose the links that we want to feature. It is so hard to choose because you have all really outdone yourselves each week! Today, it is my turn to share some of my favorite things from last week’s linky party . . .

    Living with Style Linky Party #3 Features Collage

    I love this Up-cycle Drawers into Shelving project by Diva of DIY! Anything that brings life back into “dull” items makes me happy!

    And this back-to-school treat for the kiddos is just too clever and cute!! Check out the First Day of School Mini Schultüte from Frog Prince Paperie.

    My daughter and I are all over this Easy 3 Step DIY Paper Bowls Kids Craft Idea from Must Have Mom. I absolutely love fun craft projects we can do together that we can actually enjoy around the house!

    I’m a party planner, so I’m a sucker for fun and easy to create parties, like this Back to School Party (with Printables!) from Our Thrifty Ideas.

    Thanks to Just 2 Sisters, I now have some more exciting things coming up on the menu and you will too with these 25 Amazing Grilling Recipes!

    And I want to make these Terra Cotta Cafe Pots for my home. Thank you to Farmhouse 40 for sharing!

    This adorable Solar-Powered Porch Lamp by The Everyday Home is one project I can not wait to make! Anything that will spruce up the look of my front porch is a winner in my book!

    A Sew Easy Outdoor Pillow from a vinyl tablecloth?! Yvonne from StoneGable has scored big with this project! The possibilities are endless for outdoor pillows!

    I would like to thank Babara from Barbara Leyne Designs for this tutorial on How to Reduce Image File Size. I don’t know how many times I have made an entirely new graphic to use as a thumbnail for …ohhhh let’s say…. a Living With Style Linky Party linkz!

    Peanut Butter Shrimp pad thai… Oh My Goodness! Natalie at Pistachio Road has my heartfelt thanks for this awesome recipe! My family will want this once a week!

    Jen at Cincy Shopper shared a No Bake Cherry Chocolate Chip Cheesecake recipe with us this week. Need I say more? OK, two words~ No Bake! 4 more words…. Cherry Chocolate Chip Cheesecake… Yummmm!!
