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...]


home for sale

We officially sold our first house today. It's a bittersweet day that's for sure!! Over the past 6 years (5 years and 11 months but who's counting) we've spent countless hours making our house into a home. We've kept the news quiet because we wanted to make sure everything with the sale of the house went through. So here is the back story of how / why we sold our current home. … [Read more...]

“Home of the Brave” Patriotic Cake Topper

Home of the Brave Cake Topper

Get ready to wow your guest with a super simple cake topper. This "Home of the Brave" Patriotic Cake Topper is easy to make and thanks to the Cricut you can make it in minutes! I always think of vinyl as just something I adhere to the walls, windows, furniture and more. But I always forget that another great way to use it is on paper. No need to cut paper and run it through an adhesive runner. Instead you can just cut vinyl and adhere it directly on the paper. Some people are afraid to use … [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...]

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 “I’m A Proud Father” T-Shirt

DIY I'm A Proud Father T-Shirt

Father's day is this weekend. I hope you've made something for the special father in your life. If not. I have you covered. I created the cutest phrase and ironed it on to a t-shirt. Perfect shirt for any dad. Jon loved the shirt and couldn't stop laughing at it. Specifically the part about "his mom making the shirt". It's definitely what I would do, and he doesn't expect anything less. Make sure you download the image so you can upload it into Cricut Design Space and make this shirt … [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...]

Cricut Mats 101

Cricut Mats 101

A few months ago I had the opportunity to work the Cricut Booth at the Scrapbook Expo here in Orlando, Florida. One of the questions that I constantly found myself answering was why does my paper stick to my Cricut Mat? By the end of the day I found myself sounding like a broken record. I figured if fellow crafters were asking this question in person then most likely other people (and my Cricut readers) were asking this same question to themselves. Today, I'm going to break down the three … [Read more...]

The Ultimate Wedding Registry Go-To Guide For Every Couple

Wedding Registry go-to guide For Every Couple #TargetWedding

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own. It's hard to believe that next month will mark 8 years since Jon proposed to me on the island of St. Thomas. Shortly after we were engaged we began to create a wedding registry. We had to quickly put together a registry because my inlays graciously threw us an engagement party. We both lived at home and were planning on moving in together just before we got married. We had nothing to furnish our first … [Read more...]
