Feature Friday - Tape Parking Spots

Before we get started today let's announce some winners.

The Vipre Antivirus Software goes to Alea who said: We had purchased a virus protection program for a year, but never renewed it! It was slow, but I am so scared of my computer crashing! That's almost like your house burning down what with all the amount of important things you'd lose!  I'd love to win. :) Thanks for hosting this giveaway!
 The Luna Bar Packs go to:

Jenybear who said: Ooh, they sound wonderful! I went on their site and the flavors sound delicious! I'm glad you liked them :)

Sew Much Ado who said:  Mmm, I love a good protein bar, and they're so hard to find! I'm excited to try a Luna now, thanks for the review!

Kristen (Creative Stash) who said: I love Luna bars and these chocolate protein ones sound delish! And anything that curbs my appetite for awhile is fab!

Alice who said: I.m in. I love quick and easy with vitamins to boot!

Maria who said: I'd love to try these! I've been hearing about them actually - and I know I'd love the PB/Choc and that my husband would love the Choc/Mint.  Like another commenter, I'm breastfeeding my 4 month old and it seems I can never eat enough these days. Bet these would do the trick!

A little while back I posted about toys from household items.  One of the ideas originally found HERE was to use tape to make roads in your house.  We took it a step further yesterday and made parking stalls in our garage.

After an lot of overdue sweeping we got out some painter's tape.  I quickly taped out some lines. 

Now the boys know where to put their bikes so they don't get run over AND they think it's super fun to park them.  Baden pulled in and out over and over.

The leaf blower tube (far left) is also currently doubling as their "gas station" when they need to fill up.

The boys have been living on their bikes this summer.  I'm looking forward to the cooler weather so they can ride without sweat dripping down their faces.

Thanks for reading.


  1. Love that idea! Too bad I don't have a garage right now...maybe on our back porch... We have that same Lightening McQueen bike...but after sitting out in the sun here in Kenya for a year, it's now pink...not very manly...good thing our little guy doesn't care!

  2. That is awesome. I might have to break out the painters tape this weekend ( if I have time in between sewing) From the orders at the pickle tree, you can certainly tell that college football in the south has officially kicked off!

  3. I'm so glad I found your blog! I adore it! I would love to make a parking garage for our fleet of tiny motor-vehicles (I swear you would think we were the local hangout for the toddler bike gang)...if only I could get my garage as clean as yours so I could do it!

  4. Ha ha ha ha! That is so cute! It's amazing what you can entertain kids with. I love it.

  5. Thanks for this idea! Our garage looks like a toy train derailed in it with bikes, and four wheelers and pedal tractors and electric scooters and not electric scooters. I try to remind myself, when I see it, that I will be sad some day when it is empty. BUT....this might help!!! Thanks a ton! Um.....let's wait till tomorrow. Today it is supposed to be 100 degrees here. :)

  6. Cute idea! Love little plaid Target shirt, my oldest had it and my youngest wears it now, I'm guessing that's the same with you guys too!

  7. Wahoo! I was so excited to see my name!!! My husband will be very happy... He's been saying we needed to do something to help keep our poor laptop around longer!

    And seriously, how do you always come up with such fun, yet simple ideas! Thanks for sharing. :)

  8. What a simple, yet cute idea!

  9. Super cute idea!

  10. What a great idea! So cute!

  11. Love this idea!!

    (also, I can't believe I won! It's the first time I've ever won anything on a blog giveaway before! So excited!)

  12. I also came up with this idea, in my carpeted play room, for my 4 children's smaller toy cars & trucks. Now, I'm a Grandma! They really do grow up fast.

  13. Simple and clever. The kids response TOO CUTE!

  14. Okay, now that's just genius! I am so doing this for my kids, they'll love it! Jen @

  15. I love finding super easy fun ideas like this! It's kind of like, "Duh! Why haven't I thought of that before?!" Thanks for being such a smartie pants! :)

  16. Love this idea! I am getting the painters tape now!
