Things That Bring Back Memories – Sixteen Candles Movie #MondayMemories 16

Sixteen Candles Movie#TTBBM #MondayMemories For this week’s “Things That Bring Back Memories” post, I am going to pick something in the topic of “Movies” and go with Sixteen Candles.  This was a movie from 1984, and was kind of like a coming of age movie.  It had parts that almost all of us in high school had gone through, or were going through.  We all knew those nerds, […]

Transform Planters into a Lighthouse #TigerStrypesBlog 26

Transform Planters into a Lighthouse A friend shared something like this that she had seen on YouTube, and I thought it was adorable.  I changed it up a bit and made it my own.  Great for decorating the garden, or your porch.  I figured it was a way to pretend we were at the ocean, even while living in Arizona! 🙂 I found everything at […]

Create an Artist Travel Case from an Old VHS 20

Create an Artist Travel Case from an Old VHS I saw something like this online, but it was more for storing paintbrushes, etc.  I figured it would be fun to make an artist travel case for the kids when you’re out on the road, and they get bored.  Who doesn’t have old VHS tapes laying around, that you really don’t even use anymore?  If you don’t, […]

Things That Bring Back Memories – “Beetlejuice” #MondayMemories 29

For this week’s “Things That Bring Back Memories” post, I am going to pick something in the topic of “MOVIES” and go with “Beetlejuice“.  This movie was released in 1988, and was one that so many remember that were from “back in the day”.
