DIY First Birthday Onesie

DIY first birthday onesie

I knew even before Ryder was born that I would be making him a onesie for his birthday. I mean let's get real I've made him quite a few cute custom onesies. Why wouldn't I make him one? And then fast forward 6 months after he was born, and my friend Darci opened up a cute Etsy shop, The Kitchen and the Cave, and was making the cutest first birthday onesies and shirts. I loved her designs, so I opted to not make his and have her make him one. And then Jon found out and guilted me like no one has … [Read more...]

DIY Easter Bunny Onesie with Name

DIY Easter Bunny Onesie with Name 4

Two weeks ago, in the midst of first birthday craziness I decided I needed to make Ryder an Easter onesie. Not want... but a need. This was the first time I had cut fabric using my new Cricut Explore. I have cut fabric for years now on past Cricut machines, but I was always having to battle with figuring out the perfect number settings. Well, not any more my friends. If you cut fabric often on your Cricut and still haven't upgraded your machine this is the time. The Cricut Explore cuts fabric … [Read more...]

Master Bedroom Refresh – Spring 2015

Whim Bedding Collection  6

I'm so excited to share a little refresh we recently did to our master bedroom. Our bedding is a few years old now and thanks to our adorable dog she had ripped parts of our comforter. She's tiny and likes to "fluff" before she lays down... resulting in her tearing it with her razor sharp teeth! So we knew it was time to retire our old comforter set and come up with a new look. At the same time we decided this my friends at Martha Stewart Living contacted me and asked me if I would like to try … [Read more...]

He's been to Epcot (Food & Wine Fest) and to Hollywood studios to see the Osborne Family Christmas Lights. Jon and I were both very excited to bring him … [Read more...]
