DIY Holiday Advent Calendar Kit

DIY Holiday Advent Calendar

You guys... Christmas is in 37 days. Say what!?!? How the heck did that happen. We officially started decorating over the weekend. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw what my formal living and dining room really looks like right now... it's a mess. Bins of Halloween, half a fall tablescape, rugs rolled up, Christmas tree up, decorations every where... yeah you get the point. Jon worked on decking our attic this weekend so the good news is that Halloween is about to go up in the attic and … [Read more...]

Washi Tape Super Straw Flags + Washi Tape Crafts Book Review

Washi Tape Super Straw Flags + Washi Tape Crafts Book Review

I'm so excited to share with you a very simple craft to make using wash tape! I LOVE washi tape. I've created quite a few projects on the blog using wash tape. For those who don't know what washi tape is it's a reposition-able paper tape.  It's super versatile and can stick on most surfaces. Fun fact... I have over 100+ rolls of washi tape. I only know this because when I was packing up my craft room a few months ago I counted every roll. And then realized I might have a problem. I'm … [Read more...]

DIY Halloween Window Clings

DIY Halloween Window Clings

Get ready for pure childhood fun excitement. I just introduced my curious toddler to the wonderful world of window clings. Oh boy, did I get an amazing 30 minutes of pure entertainment. Gave me enough time to do the dishes and start dinner. This was my first time cutting window clings on my Cricut and it was awesome (and so easy to do)! I cut these window clings in less than 10 minutes all while Ryder was happily playing in his playroom. We recently set up my make-shift office and put a baby … [Read more...]

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...]
