Beautiful Birth Announcements with Minted

Joyful Baby Birth Announcements

Thank you Minted for sponsoring today's blog post. As always, all opinions are my own. T-minus one week until baby arrives! I have just about everything done I want to get done, and have started narrowing down my birth announcement choices. A big thanks to Minted for providing us with birth announcements! Their product is my absolute favorite and I can't imagine working with anyone else. Sending out print announcements is a big priority of mine. I did it when Ryder was born and I plan to do … [Read more...]

Floral Girl Nursery Inspiration Board

Floral Girl Nursery Inspiration Board

Happy New Year! I'm finally sharing what I've been working on the past few months... another nursery! This time I get to design a baby girl nursery of my dreams. The sky has been the limits with this nursery (for the most part). I'll be honest I had already narrowed down my themes if we were having another boy, and then when we found out we were having a girl I was stumped. I had to go to the drawing board... I pinned a lot behind the scenes (thank you Pinterest for secret boards).  I went back … [Read more...]

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made Onesie

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made DIY Baby Onesie

Surprise Lauren! Happy virtual baby shower day! We are throwing a virtual baby shower for my dear sweet (friend in real life) Lauren of The Thinking Closet! She is expecting a sweet baby girl in June and we are showering her virtually (and well, I'm lucky and get to see her in person to give her this gift and a few other treats)! As soon as I heard of the virtual baby shower I knew I wanted to make her a onesie. This scripture is just one of my favorites and I know it's one of her's too (based … [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...]

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 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...]

DIY Iron-On Vinyl Turtle Name Onesie & Pants

DIY Iron-On Vinyl Turtle Name Onesie & Pants

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. My team decided our theme for fashion would be "pop of color". Ryder had quite a few plain onesies and pants that needed a little extra something and adding on some blue iron-on vinyl was the perfect opportunity to give it the pop of color it needed! Supplies: Onesie Pants Cricut Iron-On Vinyl Cricut … [Read more...]

Snuza Go! Product Review & Giveaway!

Snuza Go! Product Review + Giveaway #SnuzaGo

Disclosure:  I am part of the PTPA Brand Ambassador Program with Snuza and I received compensation as part of my affiliation with this group.  The opinions on this blog are my own.   For those that have babies or have babies that are grown up. I know you can relate to this post. As a new mom (and dad) we worry about Ryder 24-7. Especially when he is sleeping (even though he isn't a big fan and hasn't caught on to this "sleep thing" yet). After I put Ryder to sleep at night, I … [Read more...]

Five Reasons Why We Love The Boppy® Newborn Lounger

5 Reasons We love the Boppy® Newborn Lounger

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Boppy Newborn Lounger . The opinions and text are all mine. I'm officially 7.5 weeks into this whole parenting thing. Day-by-day it is getting easier... Kind of. I remember the first few days home after our stay in the hospital. We had a crying baby and nothing we did made him quiet. One of the evenings, when I was feeling hopeless I opened up Ryder's closet in the nursery. I grabbed The Boppy® Newborn Lounger from the closet and … [Read more...]
