 Awhile ago, I did a guest post for Someday Crafts. It’s been awhile since it posted this on there and I wanted to share it with you guys, too!  A while back, I did a post on how to make a super cheap canvas rug from painter’s drop cloth. It was a huge hit, so I decided to do another project kind of like it. I used the same material (a painter’s drop cloth) and some paint to create a super fun car rug for my little guy. I thought I’d share it with you all so you can make one, too! So here is what you...

So, we rent our house. I love that we don’t have to worry about so many things that home owners have to worry about, but I hate that I don’t have the freedom to do everything I want here. We got a really good deal on the rent, but part of the reason is because a few of the bedrooms SERIOUSLY need updating. Like… carpet that isn’t even tacked down. And there are like five different segments of carpet in each room. Literally just scraps of carpet that someone pieced together and called it good. In one of the rooms,...

Hey Friends! There’s something about the holidays—that warm glow from the fire, the EXTRA time we get to spend with our families and extended families—that makes it the perfect time to curl up with the little ones in your life and read them a storybook. Reading a totally new, beautiful, amazing book with a child is a treasured holiday experience. And if you choose the right book, every time the child reads it alone in the future will bring back the memory of that time you shared. If you’re a little tired of the standard children’s...

I just love Christmas. I love decorating and I baking and the feelings that the season brings. My husband and I haven’t ever really stayed home for Christmas before. We always travel to see family. Because of this, we don’t have a TON of Christmas decorations. Just a few hand-me-down Christmas tree ornaments and some random things I made. Because my husband just barely started a new job, we aren’t going to spend money on decorations this year (although I REALLY want to…) I decided to do a few things super cheap...

Disclaimer: I was compensated for this post with some free product. I’m super excited to be able to share some awesome new with you guys. Silhouette is having some awesome Black Friday deals. We’ll get to that later in the post though.  First, I want to talk a little about my Silhouette machine. For those of you don’t know what a Silhouette machine is, it’s an electronic cutter. It can cut vinyl, card stock, fabric, heat transfer material, rhinestone templates and other specialty media. The things you can...

This bow has to be one of my all time favorites. It is simple, you can use ribbon scraps and can be so many different colors and styles and embellished so many different ways! 🙂 Love, love, love! I am dedicating this bow to a sweet little girl named Adi who has a lot of beauty and spunk! Just like this bow! 🙂 Here goes!! Step One: Cut four pieces of ribbon the same length {I ended up cutting mine 4 inches long} -You want these to be as even as possible.Note: You can use different widths, but my favorite is the 3/8 inch. Step Two:...

I know, this post is a little bit boring, stay with me k? One of my bestest friends in the world, Haley, taught me all I know about bows. Seriously, I was SO lost. I didn’t know what you needed to have, I don’t think I owned glue gun, and wrapping ribbon into something cute was SO confusing to me. Luckily, Haley is a pro and willing to share her skills. Thanks Haley!! 🙂 This was one of the first things she taught me, just how to wrap a basic alligator clip. This works well for the one or two pronged clips. I like to get...

I have to preface this post by saying, I sew, but I am not great at it, I am learning, but I say that to let you people like me out there know that this is a super simple sewing project. Doesn’t take long, gets you using a sewing machine, but nothing TOO tricky, and even for the beginner sewers, this is a simple and fun little project. I have made a bunch of these for friends and family as teething necklaces, but my little lady is 18 months {and not teething} And she still loves her, plus, the satin is just lovely, so it can be...

  I absolutely LOVE making bows and headbands. I love my little boy love love love, but when I found out I was having a girl, I got down to business! Luckily my friend Haley had a baby girl four months before me and taught me all she knew, we would have girls nights almost monthly and just make bows for hours and hours 🙂 I have decided to share with you my wealth of knowledge {ha!} at making bows so you, too, can have girls nights and make some pretty little headbands and bows 🙂 I will be doing a new headband or bow tutorial...

I know that during this 31 Days To A Closer Family series I’ve talked a lot about Family Home Evening. To reiterate how important I think it is, I’m doing yet another post on it.  This is a little project I’ve been planning for awhile. It didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted, but I thought it might inspire someone else to create one or something like it.  Family Home Evening boards are pretty common. In fact, I already have one, but there are a few things I don’t like about most of the ones I’ve...
