Egg Canvas Painting

When my friends and I get together we are always trying to find something new and fun to do and the day I had an idea and all I said was eggs, we need eggs, they looked at me like I was crazy. But this project ended up being super fun for all of us to do. It is a cute homemade gift or something crafty to keep for yourself.

The egg canvas painting sounds weird and messy at first, but it is super fun and not so messy at all.

All you need is:

  1. 12-18 eggs shells with the top cracked off
  2. An assortment of acrylic paints (colors of your choice)
  3. A paint canvas
  4. Scissors
  5. Tissue Paper

Step 1: The Eggshells. Be careful when you are cracking the eggs so that it is not more than just the top that is cracked off (its okay if it is more just not half of the eggshell can be gone). Try to keep the carton too when you get all the eggshells cracked because it is a great thing to put them in when they are full of paint.

Step 2: The Paint. Fill the eggshells about halfway with the acrylic paint and place upward in the empty egg carton.

Step 3. The Tissue Paper. The tissue paper is if you want to cut a piece and put it on top of the paint filled eggshells. It is good if you want to make it the least messy as possible, especially if little ones are taking part in the craft. My friends and I decided against the tissue paper but below is a picture of what it looks with tissue paper over it.

Step 4. Throwing the Eggshells. We took the canvas outside and put it against a tree. after we threw it the first time we realized it would work a lot better if we put something hard directly behind it, like a wooden slat. We didn’t have one so we opted to throw closer and harder. After everything is set up outside, the next thing to do it throw them. It was actually a lot of fun.

After you are done you get a really cool, unique painting. My friends and I are 18,19, and 20. We had a lot of fun with this and I cant imagine how much fun little ones would have. Fun for all ages, creative, and unique. The perfect craft for any day.

Get motivated after vacation  – healthy ranch recipe

After traveling it can be so hard to get back on track with healthy eating and work outs.  I felt that pain this morning when I started a new 21 day fix challenge which included sending a photo of myself as a starting point for the challenge. That was brutal but with weekly photo submissions, it will help keep me motivated without the risk of cheating.  As the summer really comes into full swing, I am guessing many of you are having a hard time keeping your health motivation.

                                             
Yesterday morning I made a point to sit down and set my meal plan for the week before hitting the grocery store. Now, I am fully prepared for a busy week.  I seriously feel that meal planning is critical since when I am given full rein to pick what I want to eat when I am starving, it always ends in me pounding down a massive amount of carbs.  I wanted to share a great Greek yogurt ranch recipe that I brought into my meal planning today.

I love salad but I am also NEED to douse my salad in ranch.  That is not exactly 21 day fix approved.  So below is a really good homemade ranch recipe I stumbled across that goes a long way.  You may think that taking a cup of Greek yogurt and adding a packet of ranch seasoning is the easiest route but I have read the ranch packets are loaded with MSG so I decided adding my own seasonings is the better choice.


What you need:

  1. 1 cup of Greek yogurt
  2. 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  3. 1/2 tsp onion powder
  4. 1/4 tsp chives
  5. 1/4 tsp parsley
  6. 1/4 tsp dill
  7. 1/8 tsp sea salt
  8. 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  9. Squeeze of a fresh lemon
  10. 2 tbsp of water add more to get desired consistency

Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate for about a half hour before eating. It is great on salads or as a veggie dip.


  

After a few days off from workouts, I did find it easier to make excuses why I didn’t need to start back up today.  So without allowing myself to think too much I ran up to my room threw on my workout clothes and started.  During warm ups I can hear the little voice in my head telling me I won’t make it through.  By the time the actual workout starts I am over those thoughts.  All you have to do is remember why you started and how you feel every time you have to start over.

At Posh, we started carrying a fun new active wear line.  I am so excited at the popularity of this line.  I had to grab myself a sports bra for my own workouts.  Let me tell you the material is amazing!  They are so cute and so breathable.  We offer them in 4 colors and they are available on our website for only $15!!

4th of July Fun, Sweets & Style

The 4th of July is one of my favorite summer holidays!  Our family gets together every 4th of July up at my parents house and spends an entire weekend eating, drinking, boating, and swimming in the lake.  Darby, Tori & I wanted to share a fun post of ideas to celebrate the holiday.  Read through to find out details on our 4th of July in-store sale!

Tori wanted to share a fun red,white, & blue cupcake recipe. I personally tried one of the cupcakes and I swear they were so tasty!

I decided to try this fun baking idea for the 4th of July. Its a great idea if you’re hosting or attending a party. Everyone will love these festive cupcakes.

Ingredients:

  • Red velvet cake mix
  • Cream Cheese Icing
  • Red and white Candy Pearls
  • Blue and red sprinkles
  • Cup cake liners

IMG_8691

Follow the directions on the cake mix to make the cupcakes. After they are cooked let them cool for about 15 minutes. Than spread the frosting and design them using the pearls and sprinkles. Super easy and they taste great.

I chose to make a fun and easy t-shirt with a design that looks like fireworks for the 4th of July! It is super easy and fun for the kids to make as well.

What you need:

  • a white or light colored t-shirt
  • rubbing alcohol
  • sharpies
  • and a spray bottle (from the $1 store works just fine)

IMG_7313

Step 1: Lay the t-shirt flat on a table and put dots in any shape you would like in any place on the t-shirt. You can do it on the whole shirt or in just some spots. I only put them in certain spots on the t-shirt.

IMG_7315

Step 2: After you finish putting the Sharpie on the t-shirt take it outside and lay it on the ground. If you don’t want the sharpie bleeding through to the other side of the shirt I would put a couple pieces of cardboard in between the front and back of the shirt. Put the rubbing alcohol in the spray bottle and spray it as a mist onto the shirt. The more you spray the more it will run. Spray a little and watch it to see it run and spray more if desired.

After that let it dry and there you have got it! A fun and easy 4th of July craft that an age can do.

We chose maxi dresses because they are so easy to throw on! The maxis are lightweight and perfect for a hot summer day.  If it’s a cooler day (which can totally happen in Michigan) throw on a denim jacket and a scarf to warm up. Lastly, we chose our new navy and red tank.  We threw it with white capri leggings but can easily pair with shorts or jeans!
