Who We Follow

We recently caught word of this company called "Parking Pal" - which has a mission that goes as following:

  • Help reduce injuries to children in parking lots
  • Heighten awareness of the dangers in parking lots

This awesome company produces magnets with fun hand artwork on them to promote kids from aimlessly walking around a parking lot while their caretaker is still busy grabbing something from their car. 

The idea is that the child keeps their hand on the “magnet hand” so they don’t walk in the middle of the street or through a parking lot without their guardian. 

Below is our favorite design: “DinoPal” 

To purchase one of these safety Parking Pal Magnets, visit their site!

Because we are happy in Kansas City! 

We all know that fridge magnets are crucial accessories to have on your refrigerator to hold up pictures, notes, recipes, calendars and more.  

So when we saw these DIY Bottle Cap Magnets on The Pink Doormat Blog we knew we had to share!

 

These bottle cap magnets are super easy to make and they turn any ole’ boring refrigerator into a colorful and fun piece of furniture in your kitchen! 

What You Need: 

Steps via Buzzfeed DIY

  • Stick the magnet to the back of your bottle cap using mounting tape. You can also use hot glue if you have it.
  • Paint 2-3 coats of white nail polish on your bottle cap. Let it dry for a couple of minutes. This white paint will be your background.
  • Lightly add dots with the nail polish brush. Repeat this step for each color you’d like to add, and wait for a few minutes between each color to allow for drying.
  • Apply a coat of clear nail polish on the bottle caps for extra shine.

Hope you enjoyed another DIY magnetic craft idea!

Heralds of Spring

April’s showers and May’s flowers are only the tip of the no-more-snow-and-ice berg. Here are a few other certain signs that — at last! — nature’s new year really has begun:
… In most places the aptly named mourning cloak butterfly holds the honor of being the first of its kind to appear in spring. It overwinters as an adult and appears, dark-winged and somber as winter itself, as early as March, even in northern states. The return of truly warm weather, however, is heralded more jubilantly a few weeks later by the sky-blue flutterings of dainty, delicately spotted spring azures, the first butterflies of the season to emerge, transformed, from a long winter’s pupal sleep inside hard-shelled chrysalises.
