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...]

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...]

DIY “Hello My Name Is” Shirt

Hello My Name Is Onesies

I made this "Hello my name is" shirt almost a year ago. Hard to believe. Since then, I've been making them as a gifts and I've made a few larger sizes for my son since I love the shirt so so much. Everyone was predicting I was going to have a big baby. Little did they know or I know that I actually had a very small baby (6lbs 9oz). I only packed 2 items that were newborn size the rest were size 1-3 months. The "hello my name is" shirt happened to be a size 1-3 months. I was determined for it to … [Read more...]

I am a Filtrete Brand blogger ambassador and was compensated for this post, but all opinions and selection of additional products used in this project are my own.

DIY Snowman Bell Jar

DIY Snowman Bell Jar

Last month, I was browsing the isles at Michael's when I stumbled across bell jars for 75% off. I instantly grabbed one, and contemplated grabbing two. But decided to just grab the one in hopes I would have time to make something out of it. I also grabbed some filler, a cute little snowman ornament and a beautiful miniature tree. I knew I could make something with all those contents. I waited way too long to get to this easy nap-time craft. I actually did this right before Sarah from While They … [Read more...]

IKEA Soft Toys for Education

Soft Toy IMage 2015_4

Being a first-generation college graduate and a new mom, education is a big priority to me (and Jon too). Every week, I take Ryder to a music class. He gets social interaction from the other babies, it helps sensory development, and helps teach baby new rhythms and sounds. According to "Some experts claim that learning to play an instrument makes kids smarter in math, but that conclusion is based on research that focused on older children, not babies and young toddlers. However, … [Read more...]
