PBK Ultimate Changing Table Knockoff

PBK Ultimate Changing Table Knockoff

We started working with Ana on these plans for a knockoff version of the Pottery Barn Kids Ultimate Changing Table before Ryder was born. We got the plans the day before I was sent to the hospital to be induced. A week later we were home and my mother in-law insisted Jon and I get out of the house and take a few hours away from the baby. So we did, and where did we go? To The Home Depot to pick up supplies for this changing table. Then throughout the months (yes, as in April, May, and June) Jon … [Read more...]

DIY Iron-On Vinyl Turtle Name Onesie & Pants

DIY Iron-On Vinyl Turtle Name Onesie & Pants

Today, I'm excited to bring you another quick and easy iron-on vinyl project today. We are now in round 2 of the Cricut Design Space Star challenge and this month's theme is fashion. My team decided our theme for fashion would be "pop of color". Ryder had quite a few plain onesies and pants that needed a little extra something and adding on some blue iron-on vinyl was the perfect opportunity to give it the pop of color it needed!

Snuza Go! Product Review + Giveaway #SnuzaGo

Disclosure:  I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Snuza and I received compensation as part of my affiliation with this group.  The opinions on this blog are my own.   For those that have babies or have babies that are grown up.

Easy Fix! Paint in the Numbers on the Cricut Mini

Easy Fix! Paint in the Numbers on the Cricut Mini

Last year, before I ever received my Cricut Explore (or knew that one was in the works). I did an easy fix to my Circut Mini. Since receiving my machine as a gift I always had a hard time seeing the numbers. One day I decided enough was enough and I decided I would take some matching green craft acrylic paint and paint in the numbers. Seriously, the simplest fix ever. I wish I would have done this the day I pulled the machine out of the box! Supplies: Cricut Mini Acrylic Paint Paint … [Read more...]

4 Month Update!

Four Months Old! #babywoodsy

Ok, so I might be about two weeks late on this, but better late than never, right? Plus, I'm trying to do a monthly update instead of a 3 month update like the last one that had five-million photos in it! There is no doubt that we have a very animated baby. The boy makes some of the craziest faces. I wonder who he gets it from? And he's totally a busy-body just like both Jon and I. Here is his month update in photos and some words! This is how I typically try to bang out a blog post … [Read more...]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Listerine for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. A few years ago, I shared the mini-makeover we gave our guest bathroom. Since then I've changed up the shower curtain, towels, and floor mat, but I had never changed the DIY bathroom artwork I made for the bathroom. I finally got around to making this DIY Burlap Bathroom Art that I've been wanting to make for the past 6 months. And to jazz up our bathroom I got one of the exclusively … [Read more...]

Attending a Blog Conference with a Baby — Haven 2014

Ryder in Car

Last month, we attended the third year of Haven Conference. For those, non-DIY bloggers, Haven is a 2-day Home Decor & DIY Blog Conference. Bloggers from all over the United States attend this conference that is held in Atlanta, Georgia. Last year, at Haven I was 7 weeks pregnant and oh-so sick. But I hid it as well as one could, and just about no one caught on that I was pregnant! So it was nice to attend this year without having to hide anything. Instead I was showing off the little bundle … [Read more...]
