10 Reasons Why I LOVE the Cricut Explore®

10 Reasons Why I LOVE the Cricut Explore®

I've been on "team" Cricut since before I had a blog. I've LOVED my Cricut over the years, and last year after the team at Cricut flew me out to the grand reveal for the Cricut Explore® I fell back in love with the machine ALL OVER AGAIN. I know, I might be sounding a little mellow-dramatic, but I'm being dead honest. One question, that I receive in multiple-Cricut related post just about daily is why buy the Cricut Explore®? Today, I just want to share my top 10 reasons why the Cricut … [Read more...]

DIY Santa's Cookie and Milk Placemat 13

I shared with you my super cute DIY Personalized Santa Cookie Plate yesterday. Today, I'm sharing this super cute Santa's Cookie and Milk Placemat I made. I must say its felt great to be back in the craft room crafting again. Although, my craft room is still a mess (even with my efforts of cleaning it up). I'm so incredibly proud of this placemat and can't wait to make more for family and friends! The ideal gift combo set for Christmas. This is another project I've submitted into the Cricut … [Read more...]

DIY Personalized Santa Cookie Plate

DIY Personalized Santa Cookie Plate 8

The Christmas bug has hit me hard this year. We put up our tree a few weeks ago (living in Florida it's not practical to have a real tree). I've been dreaming up tons of Christmas crafts... all that have to do with the wee-little one. I've always wanted a personalized Santa cookie plate, so I decided to make one for Ryder. And because I love how this plate turned out I'm pretty sure I'll be making a few more for friends and family! This is one of my three projects this month for the Cricut … [Read more...]

DIY Lavender Milk Bath with Label

DIY Lavender Milk Bath with Label #imadeit #CricutDesignSpaceStar

Today, I'm going to show you how easy it is to make your own DIY Lavender Milk Bath. I love making sugar scrubs, but find that I can only enjoy them in the shower. I love to take baths. I take at least 3 baths a week. I can always count on a little "me" time which is hard to find these days. I've blown through bottles of bubble bath over the past few months. Last month, my mom gave me a lavender milk bath to try--I loved it and although I know I should have used the entire package in one sitting … [Read more...]

3 Ways to Help Reduce Fall Allergens #HealthierHome

I am proud to be a 3M-sponsored blogger, and as part of my responsibilities, I get the 
opportunity to evaluate 3M products. Opinions are my own.  Fall is officially here. The temperatures have finally started to cool down here in Florida. Although apple pie, autumn leaves, and Halloween first come to mind to me when I think of fall the next thing that comes to mind is the dreaded fall allergy season.

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.

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...]

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...]
