Red, White and Blue anything brings a smile to my face. It means summer, barbecues, warm weather and most importantly it signifies the freedoms we have thanks to those who protect our country. I was due on July 4th but wasn’t born until July 8th. For some reason, maybe it is just because my birthday is in July, I have always had a true love for the Fourth of July. I have always looked forward to the celebrations, fireworks and fun.
Then I met my husband Mike who had a July birthday too… we had a son (okay we have three sons but one….) who has a July birthday too!! July is full of fun and celebration around our home. I have mentioned that this year our son, Mason, wants a Red, White and Blue birthday party so it only seems fitting that Red, White and Blue are the theme in our home for the whole month of July. I have our wreath on the front door and slowly but surely I am adding decorations all around.
If you have followed Poofy Cheeks for any length of time then you already know I like to keep things cheap. My budget is tied up buying groceries for four growing kids. Speaking of growing kid and groceries my children are eating me out of house and home now that they are home on summer break! As fast as I can stock our pantry the food is gone. This is where my cheap crafting comes in handy. Today’s craft involves dollar store candles and vinyl stickers.
