Jamie of CRAFT and I teamed up as part of coLAb with Alt Summit to take one project, the care package, and show you how to create it in two different ways. So today I present the ultimate care package for the college freshman (snacks should be added liberally).
Now go take a look at Jamie’s sunny interpretation of the care package on her blog, CRAFT.
Want to make the send off to school a little more cheery? Download one of these placemats to surprise your kids at breakfast. Then kick them out the door and enjoy a leisurely trip to Target.
Already celebrated the first day of school? Just Sharpie over first. You gotta do what you gotta do.

My sister-in-law has a great house with a common problem, the finishes are dated. The oak cabinets in the kitchen were especially bothersome to her but since they were in good condition, she didn’t want to replace them. Enter three gallons of paint from Sherwin Williams , that’s all this before and after took.
Does this not want to make you paint everything you own? I kind of can’t believe the only difference in these photos is paint and daylight.
I do have to give credit to my sister-in-law for sanding, priming and painting two coats like a boss (with five kids). Painting can be time consuming but in this case, an inexpensive change with mega impact.
All paint used was Sherwin Williams Proclassic which my sister-in-law described as going on, “like butter.”
Our round faced little girl turned one. We celebrated with a small, backyard ice cream party (with leftover soft pretzels) and made a tin can cake for her to pick the frosting off of. Simple, but just right for a one-year-old.
Besides Margo, the confetti balloons I bought from The Sugar Confetti Shop were my favorite part. One popped the other day and it was a delightful shower of confetti, that I promptly scooped up and saved of course.
Happy first birthday sweet girl.
