 This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts. Spring has sprung in the south and well Easter might be over (don't mind the bunnies in the photo--I had all intentions of getting this easy craft project out before Easter, but well, I have a newborn and life is a little unpredictable these days), mother's day is right around the corner. This Easy Spring Floral Candy Jar takes less than 10 minutes to make. It's my kind of craft these days. And of course the bulk of the … [Read more...]

ladder golf

Today, I'm participating in the Ready 4 Summer blog party hosted by Maggie from Midwestern Girl DIY and Kristin from Simply Klassic Home.

Mr. Woodsy built this game some 5+ years ago for our engagement party which took place in the middle of June.

Appliquéd Tie Onesie

Let's face it... the onesie tie tutorial has been around the block or two, but I still can't get enough of them! They are beyond adorable and make for an awesome (and inexpensive) baby-shower gift!

Each of them are die-hard fans, … [Read more...]

Pacifier Clip

Back in January I saw this blog post from Running with Scissors about making your own pacifier clip. Since I have a million friends (ok maybe I'm exaggerating on the number) that all seem to be having babies I figured this would be a perfect project to try and hopefully give as gifts! Right after my most recent cousin was born I decided I would give this project a try. I am not going to re-create the wheel here since Jessica did a great job on her tutorial.  This project took me a … [Read more...]

4th of July Word Cloud {How to make}

I love the varieties of subway art that all the crafters in the world make; however, lately I've had very little time to make anything. I recently started using a very cool and free word cloud generator; Wordle.  I decided to give this free program a try in hopes I could make some cool word art for the Fourth of July. A lot of teachers use this program to make classroom decor or even assign projects to students. You can either type in words to create your word cloud or type in a URL. I … [Read more...]

Simple {Reversible} Tote Bag

*This is the only photo I have and it was taken on a camera phone. One of my first sewing projects I attempted after receiving my sewing machine in 2009 was the simple (reversible) tote bag. I found a plethora of awesome tutorials from Skip to My Lou, and instantly fell in love with the reversible tote bag. It looked easy and I figured it would be a great first project. This one hour project took me at least a good 3 hours. I think I had to seam rip a good three times, and at one point I … [Read more...]
