Easy Tweedle Family Costume

Easy Tweedle Family Costume + Baby

Earlier this year, we were invited to our friend's surprise Alice & Wonderland themed 30th Birthday party! We weren't sure what to do, but we knew we needed to dress up. That's when the idea of this Easy Tweedle Family Costume came to mind. I found red pants for us at Old Navy (yes, Jon is wearing women's pants) and then I ran over to Michael's Craft Store to pick up the yellow shirts, red hats, felt and pipe cleaners. The day of the party we got to work and made the collar, bow tie, and … [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 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...]

How To Apply Vinyl To A Coffee Table + $100 Giveaway

Because Every Picture Has A Story Vinyl on Coffee Table

This post was created in partnership with Snapfish. All opinions are my own. I recently had the chance to give our formal living room an update thanks to my friends at Snapfish! Our formal living and dining room has always been the "last" room to be decorated. The first few years it was kind of a dumping ground for everything we had but couldn't find a place for. Our formal living area also consisted of all sorts of random free furniture we received from friends and family including a … [Read more...]

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...]
