Welcome Fall! We hope to see some cooler weather heading our way. We love the fall months, and we always have a handful of fun family outings planned! I created a “Fall Fun List” to help keep you organized with all the fun activities we get to do in the fall. Continue reading
Today I am sharing my stencil project. We have managed to keep our master bathroom powder room pretty bland over the last couple of years. I know that I wanted to do something to spruce it up, it just took me a while to figure out what to do. I thought stenciling would be the way to go. This project took far longer as I anticipated it would. I ran into a few complications along the way which I will get into later.
You might notice by reading my blog that I love giving personalized gifts! I love coming up with ideas for big events such as weddings and the arrivals of little ones. Since one of my cousin’s weddings was coming up I saw this as a perfect opportunity to make something special for them. I wanted to incorporate their names and their wedding date.
I am enjoying the Cricut so much right now! I cannot believe how easy it is to use. I probably spend the most time on creating the designs. Being that I am a newbie, I also find myself performing test trials on the pieces before I use the final material. I am sure once I feel more confident the time I will spend crafting projects will be even less!
Teacher Appreciation Day is just around the corner! Its time to show our teachers how much they mean to us. This is technically my first year showing our appreciation for my daughter’s teachers. I am super excited to share with you my creation!
We are a no shoes house. We actually were like this before we had a baby, but totally more OCD about it now. Our little girls room is where she plays and (use to crawl all over the place.) I saw this saying online and thought it was so cute. For about a year I had a paper sign on my daughter’s door. Since I own the amazing Cricut I thought I could make a really cute sign for her door. So here it is!
So I did some rearranging in the front of our home. We are getting ready to work on a BIG project in our living room, dining room and foyer (it has not begun yet, but stay tuned!) You see, I have this wall in the foyer of my home. I do not like this wall because the good old ac vent is there and cannot be covered in any way. I had a table in front of it for the longest time, but I found that it was taking away from the looks of my table. Plus the dust was building up in the ac vent. I really do think I should be blocking it, but the AC man never told us it was not OK. Anyways, for the longest time I was trying to figure out what to do with this wall. My first thought was a gallery wall! You can do so much with a gallery wall. There are no rules or limitations of what you can put on it. So I made my decision, gallery wall it is!
I have always loved hand making items for family and friends. 2015 was a busy year, aside from a growing a baby I made 5 baby blankets! In 2016, my friends were having more babies, I decided to go a different route. I saw these Mary Jane shoes on Pinterest. I thought they would be so cute to make for my friend and for my little one. The instructions were a little overwhelming and long. I don’t enjoy making complicated things. I honestly do better looking at the final product and then figuring out in my head how I want to tackle this. For those of you who have the same mindset as I do I hope you will find this post to be helpful. Continue reading
So I found this mint colored frame at my local craft store. I love mint colored things. Our little girl’s nursery is mint, her 1st Birthday party featured mint, my Cricut is mint colored, I own several mint colored blouses, and my nails are currently mint! I am mint obsessed! Although in this case I am not sure if was being mint obsessed or the 70% off sale that got me. Continue reading
My daughter had her first adventure at “Magic Kingdom.” How could I resist not having a customized outfit for the day right? Especially since I own a Cricut. No excuses. Customized shirts really seem to be a thing now a days. When we were at the park we couldn’t believe all the people walking around with them. You can find these custom outfits on shops like Etsy OR you can make your own.
