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...]

I've been wanting to make this birth announcement subway art for Ryder's room since before he was born. 8 month's later and I finally tackled this project. A few week's ago I shared his nursery gallery wall that we finally hung up. I also hinted that it wasn't complete, but that we got the big pieces up. Today, I'm sharing with you the chalk painted frame I finally got around to painting and the DIY birth announcement subway art that I put in the frame! It's super easy and ANYONE can make this … [Read more...]

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...]

Spider Web Craft Paper Table Runner with Spider Confetti

Spider Web Craft Paper Table Runner with Spider Confetti

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts as always all opinions are my own. As I prepped my front room of the house for a fun-filled Halloween themed party room I knew I wanted to make the kids table more exciting than just a roll of craft paper on the table. That's when I remembered I received a really cool spider web and spider punch last year for the 12 Month's of Martha box. So I dragged the exersaucer to the front room, placed Ryder in it and I went to punching … [Read more...]

Paper Fish Nursery Decor

Paper Fish Nursery Decor

Oh man, am I excited to finally share the Paper Fish Nursery Decor I made for Ryder's room before he was born. When we started brainstorming ideas for his nursery I knew I wanted to incorporate fish. I had it in my head that I wanted a school of fish swimming from one side of his wall to the next. Then to add more depth to the wall we added the hand-cut letters of his name to the wall. It's like the fish are swimming from his name and I love everything about it! Can I tell you that this was … [Read more...]

DIY Nautical Burp Cloth

nautical burp cloth from @KatieJasiewicz #12MonthsOfMartha #MarthaStewartCrafts #Baby

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts as always all opinions are my own. I was never one to like customized clothing, towels, bags, etc... that all changed once I had my son, Ryder. For some reason, I want his name on EVERYTHING. I'm kind of becoming addicted to it. When I got my nautical stencil in last month, I knew I wanted to use it and make a custom nautical burp cloth. We can never have too many burp cloths. Especially since we are in that super drooly stage. I … [Read more...]
