Young Love by Mat Kearney #Review

Today marks the first of September and the launch of Endless Summer Month  here at Artsy Chaos!

"Singing oh oh, won't you help me sing this song........Singing hey mama, don't want no drama, just a kiss before I leave".... come on everyone, sing with me!  What better way to continue the summer than with the bright and sunny music of Mat Kearney.

Mat Kearney is just relaxed.  When you listen to his music, you can't help but be relaxed too.  His album, Young Love, is the kind of thing you'd find yourself listening to while slowing browsing a cute vintage antique shop early on a Saturday morning.  Or maybe biking over to the local juice bar wearing your newest pair of high top Converse sneakers.  Mat is also hitting the road in September playing nearly 40 shows in US & Canada.  Sadly, he is not coming to Salt Lake or the West but those of you in the Midwest and East should have a show close to you.

When we were offered the chance to listen to Mat Kearney's newest album, though, I was a little unfamiliar with the name. Shhh... don't tell anyone I'm not hip.  My 16 year old daughter, however, was the cool opposite.  When I mentioned it to her she remarked 'oh, yea, of course I know him, he's awesome' in her I'm-so-hip-because-I-am-always-on-YouTube-and-know-everything-voice.  Of course.  But she was right, Mat Kearney is cool. Maybe I should steal her Converse and go browse for antiques with Young Love in my ear.

FTC Disclosure:  A complimentary copy of Mat Kearney's Young Love album was sent to us to use for this review through our relationship with the One2One Network.  We are not expected to return the album and no monetary compensation was received.  All opinions are ours alone.


We're happy to hear that you enjoying the album! My 11 year old has claimed it as her own, good thing I have it on my computer, too!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.

We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
