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...]

First Birthday Whale Invitation

This post is brought to you by Minted.com. I received product in exchange for this first birthday whale invitations review. There are affiliate links in this post. As always all opinions are my own.  We celebrated Ryder's first birthday two weekends ago. A month and a half prior I had reached out to my friends at Minted for birthday invitations. They have the best invitations. I'm a paper person and believe that quality is key. 10 years ago I was a production assistant for a publishing … [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...]

Learn how to make this Lucky Shirt using Iron-On Vinyl

I had all intentions of getting this post out last week so other's might be able to make the same shirt in time for St. Patrick's day. But instead I dealt with business taxes (yuck), and survived it all, so now I'm back to bring you some fun creative projects. First up, this lucky shirt. While cleaning out my craft room last month I found a mint green shirt that I'm guessing I was planning to do something with. Like 2-3 years ago. oops. But now, it's been transformed into this sparkly lucky … [Read more...]

Valentine’s Day 2015

baby cupid photo

Last week, just a few days before Valentine's Day I decided to take Ryder to go get Valentine's Day pictures. I really really wanted a baby cupid photo of him. Jon thought I was crazy, but it's what I wanted. Ryder will only be little like this once in his life and I was not going to miss out on the opportunity to get the photo I wanted. So I took him over to Picture People at our local mall, after our Circle Time Valentine's Day party. I only had one photo in mind and I was set that I was only … [Read more...]

I'm sharing a free printable Valentine for the tots in your life that love to eat squeeze pouches! Print off the "You're My Main Squeeze" Valentine card. We are attending our first Valentine's party tomorrow. It's with the mother's group that I go to every Thursday with Ryder. It's called Mommy and Me Circle Time. It's a free "music" class for all babies 0-18 months at a local church. You don't have to be a member of the church (I'm not) to go either. I learned about it through my weekly … [Read more...]

My Heart Beats For You – Classroom Valentine Card

My Heart Beats For You Valentine Card

I'm so excited to share my first ever classroom-style Valentine's Day card with you guys! I got the idea for this Valentine when I was browsing the aisles at my local grocery store. I stumbled across Reese's Hearts and my mind ran with it. This took me one too many nap times to complete. Thank you teething and a fussy baby who only wants to nap 20-30 minutes at a clip. Also, never did I realize that when we bought our home that my craft room being right next to a future nursery would not be a … [Read more...]

Christmas 2014

christmas morning with the family

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I wanted to share a few photos of Ryder's first Christmas. I know we've been absent over the past week. I've been trying to take more time with family and less with work. It's a constant struggle of time when you are self employed. You tend to work around the clock--or at least I do! We spent Christmas Eve at my inlaws house and Christmas day at our house. After Ryder woke up we took as many family photos as he would allow us too until he completely … [Read more...]
