DIY Baby’s First Ugly Christmas Sweater

Babys First Ugly Christmas Sweater

I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with I Love to Create and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own. I'm so excited about today's project that I'm sharing with you. Jon and I made tacky Christmas sweaters a few years back. We figured it would be super cute to make Ryder his first ugly Christmas sweater, too! Making your baby an ugly Christmas sweater should be a new family tradition each and every year. I hope that my tutorial gives you holiday inspiration for … [Read more...]

DIY Santa’s Cookie and Milk Placemat

DIY Santa's Cookie and Milk Placemat 13

I shared with you my super cute DIY Personalized Santa Cookie Plate yesterday. Today, I'm sharing this super cute Santa's Cookie and Milk Placemat I made. I must say its felt great to be back in the craft room crafting again. Although, my craft room is still a mess (even with my efforts of cleaning it up). I'm so incredibly proud of this placemat and can't wait to make more for family and friends! The ideal gift combo set for Christmas. 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...]

How to Sew a Magician’s Cape

Magician's Cape

Learn how easy it is to sew a Magician's Cape in minutes! Back in March my mother in-law took my nephew to our local repertory theater to see a child's play. The play's main character was a magician. My five year old nephew, Nicholas, loved the play and all of a sudden wanted to be a magician. After the show they passed by the merchandise table and my mother in-law splurged and purchased a magician's hat for my Nicholas. He really wanted the cape but she just couldn't fathom spending a … [Read more...]

Crows-in-Waiting

Crows-in-Waiting

We made these crows-in-waiting back in 2012 after getting back from our Europe trip. I totally forgot to share these last year (I blame that on the severe pregnancy brain I was experiencing), and when I was going through my draft post a few weeks ago I realized I had this awesome Halloween project waiting in the wings for the world to see! When I first saw the Ravens-in-Waiting project in the Halloween edition of Martha Stewart I knew I needed to make the project. However, using paper packing … [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...]

Burlap Starfish Art

EASY 30 Minute Craft Project >> Burlap Starfish Art #12MonthsOfMartha #MarthaStewartCrafts #Craft #beach

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Martha Stewart Crafts as always all opinions are my own.  I'm still slowly putting Ryder's nursery together. For month's now ( I can say that since I've officially been sitting in his nursery day-in-and-day out for the past 3 months) I've starred at the stack of frames perched against the empty wall. Waiting to be hung and of course waiting to be filled with beautiful photos and prints. I wanted to make a few unique DIY pieces for his gallery … [Read more...]

Custom Newborn Snap Tee “I Was Worth The Wait”

Custom Newborn Snap Tee- I was worth the wait

The week before I was due to have Ryder I started nesting like crazy. I had a few DIY projects that I felt HAD to be done. I was staying up late after work every night to finish them. I just didn't feel like I could have this baby without completing the projects. One of the projects was creating this custom newborn snap tee. I had eyed the "worth the wait" onesie set from Uncommon Goods for years and always knew that when I had a baby I wanted he/she to have that onesie. However, I did not … [Read more...]
