 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...

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...

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 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...

So as a little background on our family, I have 5 siblings And my husband has 6 siblings. We have 10 sibling in laws. And together have 36 nieces and nephews. And we don’t live by any of them. They all live on the West Coast, and we are still a good two day drive {or more} from them. I wanted to start a tradition that helped us to be able to feel connected to everyone individually, and so I started sending a birthday card to our siblings and their spouses, and their kids, and of course our parents. It’s a lot to remember,...

{Please don’t hate the blurry pic, I did that on purpose 🙂 Is anyone else out there a journal-er? I LOVE journaling, I really enjoy watching myself grow as a person, and be able to look back and see and remember things and feelings and thoughts, that I would otherwise just forget. I love remembering the little things, not EVERY little thing, but some of the little things. And, being married, I love to write, often, all the big and little things I love about my husband. So that I am always focusing on the good, and remembering...

Today I just wanted to share a SUPER simple {and cheap} Project that will keep your toddler busy for hours {okay, maybe not HOURS but at least one hour, for sure}. When our little family first moved to Florida, we moved into a two bedroom apartment. Which was just the right size for our family of three. But moving a one year old across the country when he is used to having tons of cousins and a yard was a hard thing to adjust to. Plus, Florida is HOT. We moved in August which is about as hot as hot can be! So, we were stuck inside a little...

We just moved into a new house. We got an awesome deal on it. It’s a rental, and it’s rented out as a two bedroom, because there are two bedrooms upstairs, but, there is a HUGE basement. The problem is that the basement was in pretty bad shape when we moved in. One of the rooms has mold in the ceiling, and all the rooms are super dirty. The family room...
