Local Tourist: March 2019

On Friday, March 1, my sister and I attended a Cincinnati Cyclones game (our local hockey team). It was a Wizarding World theme and we got these cool Cyclones themed wands! Of course, I had to wear my Harry Potter shirt too. And yes, both of my eyes are open – one just likes to squint sometimes. LOL

I’ve shared these already, but on Saturday, March 2, my mom and I attended a local library event and made these wooden bunnies (mine are the Spring ones, hers are the Easter ones).

On Thursday, March 7, my mom and I attended another library event and made String Art Bouquets!

And yes, another library event! On Saturday, March 9, my mom and I made Rustic Spring Garlands-

This is one of my garlands; it’s made with Mason Jar lids

Later that day, my mom, sister, and I took my oldest niece and nephew to Paint and Bake, where we all painted pottery. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture to show of our finished creations – but it was fun!

On Monday, March 11, my mom and I had ANOTHER library event where we made dandelion paintings!

Finally, on Saturday, March 23, I saw Kelly Clarkson in concert. She was fantastic – this was actually my third time seeing her live. Her opening acts were Brynn Cartelli (from The Voice) and Kelsea Ballerini. I didn’t see all of Brynn’s set, but I LOVE Kelsea, so it was great seeing her live too.

UPDATE: I finally have all the videos I took uploaded on Instagram, so check those out below and follow me on Insta if you want!

Whew, it’s been a busy – but really fun – March. What about you? Did you go on any local adventures this month? Let us know!

  1. I love the HP themed game! How fun!! I’m so sad I missed KC on her Ohio tour. K and I love her (and KB!). We could’ve done the Columbus one and then we were IN Cincinnati the day of her concert there!! Ahh! I know so many people that went to the Cincinnati concert!

  2. What a fun month! I love that your library has so many fun crafting events! I wish my library did stuff like that. The Kelly concert looks amazing, she’s on my list to see live someday.

  3. My goodness Lauren, what a massive month you’ve had! I absolutely love the crafts, especially the mason jar lid art wreaths, those look incredible and I would never have thought mason jar lids would have come in handy. STRING ART! I haven’t seen that for years Lauren and now it’s 9:30pm here on a Saturday night and I’m wondering if we have any wood and nails out in the garage because I have a hankering now I tell you!

  4. I love all the crafts that you get to do at your library. Such a fun thing to do and the projects all turned out super cute.

  5. So jealous of you getting to see Kelly Clarkson! I am convinced that she and I are going to be best friends! I met her at a book signing once, and she said she liked my shoes…that’s all it takes for me to build our lifelong friendship lol.

    Your library has such fun crafts! I think the bunny one is my favorite!

  6. I love going to hockey games and how fun that it was an HP themed event! Kelly Clarkson? So jealous! I’ll have to see if my library does fun things like this. I don’t think they do, but would love to try this!

  7. What a fun month! I love all the crafts you made at your library–they have some awesome events!! I really need to see what kinds of things like this they offer.

  8. My little festivals look rather trite compared to all of the local tourist activities you participated in. What a great public library you have. I am certain ours does nothing like the craft projects yours does. But just to be sure, I am going to check their website!!

    Kelly Clarkson is such a talent. I have her first LP – so many great songs. And she seems so real and down-to-earth. Totally worthy of seeing in 3 different concerts.
