Welcome to the weekend! I hope you have some fun plans ahead of you for the next couple of days. I have a to-do list a mile long with boring adult things to try to get through, but sometimes I need weekends like that. Oil change. Eye doctor appointment. Car emissions testing to name a few unfun things. I’m hoping I can knock out the whole list so I can fill the rest of my weekends this month with friends and fun. But before that, it’s time for Friday Favorites!
If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!
I’ve been really wanting to get back into making handmade art recently. I took a printmaking class with one of my besties (more on her wonderful work below) in the fall and while I haven’t had time to take another class, I’ve made it a goal this month to make more art.
Starting a Canvas Bag Collection
More and more stores in Chicago are no longer giving out plastic bags – and I love the idea of being more environmentally friendly. I’ve been trying to use canvas bags for awhile now in replacement of plastic, but I will admit that I really haven’t tried 100% until recently.
To help me remember, and make it a bit more fun, I’ve started getting a few more fun canvas bags instead of cheaper, free ones I’ve been given at various festivals and the like. This owl canvas bag is my most recent find and it’s super cheap!
This is a few months old, but with the warm weather around the corner (it IS, right? Warmth after Chicago’s snow this weekend…) I thought it would be a great time to share this. I have very minimal green space currently, but if I had the option of this at my last home I would have been all over it!
I swear it cannot be just my husband and I with the amount of laundry I do… I’m terrified of what happens when you add a kid to the mix ha
Also, I grabbed this image from Moms Got Ink. I just discovered her and I love her facebook page!
There are tons of great quotes, tattoo images, and other fun products.
My Wish List of the Week
Each week I’ve added my favorite Instagram photo but I’m going to start making this section a weekly addition as well. I realized I had a wishlist on Amazon that was growing, full of fun items that I may someday pick up for myself or a gift for someone else. And if I’m adding items to it each week, why not share my fun finds?
