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. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
