DIY Infant Strawberry Costume

DIY Infant Strawberry Costume

I can't believe it's October already. I've been meaning to share this adorable and easy-to-make DIY Infant Strawberry Costume for the past month. I whipped this up last year for Ryder just a few days before Halloween. As you are aware of by now, we love Halloween at my house. He had THREE costumes last year. Yes, three. We had one costume that was handed down to us. And then  one that we bought, and then I felt some mom-guilt and felt the need to make him a costume. I'm going to admit, I … [Read more...]

Patriotic Printable

I love My Freedom I love my America Free Downloadable Printable

  I'm so excited to share this gorgeous patriotic printable today! My dad served in the United States Navy for 20 years. He sacrificed so much of his life to our country. He served during the Gulf War. He missed precious time with our family. Was deployed to sea just 2 days after my brother was born. He missed countless holidays, birthdays and "first" events for my brother and I. He was and always has been so incredibly proud of not only his service but of his country. The freedom we … [Read more...]

USA Mini Bunting Banner

usa mini bunting banner 5

Get ready for the cutest mini bunting banner around. I got the idea for a USA mini bunting banner after making a mini bunting banner for Ryder's 1st Birthday cake. For his cake I secured the mini bunting banner to paper straws. But for this bunting banner I just secured it to the picture frame using a little tape.  On 4th of July I plan to adhere the bakers twine to paper straws and stick it in a cake! Whatever way you want to display the USA mini bunting banner is up to … [Read more...]

My patriotic heart beats red, white, and blue

Today, I'm sharing this hip and funky My Patriotic Heart Beats Red, White, and Blue free downloadable printable! 4th of July is NEXT weekend. How the heck is that possible. We are officially at the half way point of the year. I feel that we typically don't decorate in the summer months. Maybe because we are mentally preparing ourselves for Halloween. But either way I want to start changing that. Especially since we now have Ryder. I want him to know about all the holidays we celebrate each … [Read more...]

DIY “My Dad Rocks” Onesie

My Dad Rocks Onesie

I whipped up a quick onesie for Ryder so that he can show his love for "dada" on Father's Day! I used a existing image found in the Cricut Design Space library and then added the "my" text. Like I said, super simple to do and "dada" loved it when he saw him wearing it for the mini photo shoot!  The best part is that I can add a few of the photos from our mini photo shoot into Jon's Father's day journal for this year! Supplies: Cricut Explore Cricut Design Space Cricut Iron-On … [Read more...]

DIY Father’s Day Journal

DIY Father's Day Journal 6

Make dad a DIY Father's Day Journal and write in it every year in leu of cards. He can look back and read it for years to come!  I got this idea last year before I celebrated my first mother's day. We normally always make each other cards, but let's get real who saves the cards throughout the year? Not me. They stay on my entertainment center for about a month collecting dust and then bam! In the recycling bin they go. So we decided to start a yearly journal that the opposite parent … [Read more...]

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...]
