You could be "so Pinterest" too.

DIY Craft Bucket List

For those who don’t know me that well, I love to craft. Only problem: I’m not that crafty. BUT that doesn’t stop me from trying every once and awhile. This past weekend I was on Pinterest, as per usual, and came across some crafts that made my heart skip a beat because it made me so excited to try them out. So here are six DIYs that are perfect for a sunny afternoon and super fun to finally cross off of your DIY bucket list!

1. Balloon Dart Painting

This has been on my bucket list ever since 2001 when I first saw Princess Diaries. It is a bit more work than some of the other crafts but it is so worth it! I mean who doesn’t want to skip princess lessons for some dart painting?

2. Coffee Themed Mugs

Making cute mugs are one of the easiest DIYs that are affordable and enjoyable. So how can you make it better? Express how much you love coffee on your own mug! For my own taste I love writing funny puns or if I’m feeling especially motivational I’ll try out an elaborate design.

3. Crayon Art

This is such a cool experience! I will warn you though that it is a lot of work. I made my sister a crayon art project last year for her birthday and while it turned out pretty well, I was a bit in over my head. I highly recommend using a lighter to melt the crayons instead of a blow dryer unless you want the melted crayon to splatter everywhere! Otherwise it is a really fun craft and the outcome is legit.

4. String Art

I’ve never attempted this craft mainly because I was told it takes an exceptional amount of time to make, especially if you are a perfectionist like me. However, I am determined to try it out because the outcome is out of this world. There is also a scale of easy to difficult types of string art that you can find for your choosing.

5. Chalkboard ANYTHING

If you didn’t know, chalkboard anything is a huge trend right now. We are craving a time where times were simpler with just a piece of chalk and chalkboard, plus it looks super cute. What is even better is that they have made chalkboard markers so you don’t have to listen to that cringe worthy sound of chalk on a chalkboard. I highly recommend this activity because my sister is proof of making anything on chalkboard look amazeballs.

6. Shadow Box

I love shadow boxes and the meaning behind them. I’ve never made one myself but I have such respect for those who make them because the sentimental value to each of them is all unique. I know it can take some time to gather up materials to set out so that can be hard, but otherwise it is a priceless gift for anyone who receives one.

I hope this has encouraged y’all to find your nearest craft store, grab a friend, and make something during a sunny summer afternoon!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
