Monday Made Its

Monday means time to link up with Tara for Monday Made It! Sorry to post twice in one day, but I couldn't link my giveaway with my "made its", it would be way too long! I don't have any major projects to share, but a few quick ideas.
 My son turned 14 on Saturday, so I had to think of a creative way to give him some cash! I rolled up the bills with his extra rubberbands from his braces (I knew they'd come in handy some day!).
I placed the rolled bills inside the balloons and spread them all over my son's bedroom floor before he woke up. He was very excited to pop them!
Warning: It takes about an hour to make the balloons and about ten seconds to pop them! 
 I made this banner for my daughter's luau!
Look at these gorgeous girls with their luau accessories!
Unfortunately, they didn't stay on long...they wanted to jump in the pool! 
 We made this for my husband for Father's Day-this gives him the OK to play! :O)
My children also decorated his windows of his truck-they loved sneaking out and painting at night when he was sleeping!
Got this idea from Pinterest-can't find the original source. :(
 The last item I made this week was my first blog button for my 300 Follower Giveaway! What do you think? Click here to enter both giveaways!
Also, linking up with my buddy Christy for her Eating, Drinking, and Linking Oh My! I hope these count Christy...I'm not much of a cook! :O)
Fruit Kabobs: Made these for my daughter's luau-2 huge trays full and they were gone in minutes! Something about fruit on a stick makes it more appealing! I also use these for 4th of July!
If you like corner brownies, don't like cutting them, or just want them all the same size, then this brownie pan is for you! They are made by Pfaltzgraff-you can see them here. I used these for gifts at Christmas time with a box of brownie mix and everyone loved them! They're amazing!
They look like cupcake pans, but they're designed for brownies.
 See? Perfect brownies!
 Hope you're getting lots of ideas to pin and make from both these linky parties! 


  1. Ahhhhhhh!!! Yes, that counts! :) Thanks for linking up friend! (I love that pan, I love the brownies on the edge)

  2. I love the money in the balloons! My birthday is next week...I wonder how I could put that in my mom's head to do that for me!!!! I might just have to have your blog open for her to read!
