 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,...

From time to time, I like to make blogging tutorials. I know that a LOT of the people who read my blog are bloggers as well, and I like to write posts that I KNOW they will find useful. This is one of those posts. Knowing this coding is essential to blogging. Whenever you put an image in your sidebar, whether it’s an ad or your own blog’s button, you use this code. If you look down at the right side of my blog, there are quite a few ads and buttons. They all use this coding. (Some are a little more intense than others, but...

I know you THINK this post is late, because it’s not even the first of the year anymore, but the truth is, January 17 was the blog’s ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY! Isn’t that exciting? It has been such an adventure to see it grow and to come up with fabulous content (and some not so fabulous content). I’ve loved getting to work with my awesome sister in law, Traci, and some amazing sponsors through out the past year. I thought it’d be fun to share my top five posts with you, as well as some stats from the past year.  The...

  Note: I’ve been told that Pinterest gets rid of your affiliate links. I’m not sure if that is true or not. Be sure to add a coupon code to the image you are uploading if you have it so that you will get credit for any sales that are a result of your pinterest pictures.  Pinterest can be an AWESOME way to get traffic to a website. Over 30% of my traffic comes from Pinterest. Everyone gets how to use pinterest, right? Pin a picture, it links back to the website it was pinned from. But what if you want it to link to...

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...

One of my most popular posts ever was a post where I shared my favorite fonts. We’re talking pinned over 4000!!! times popular. I figured since that one was so popular, I would do another one, this time a Christmas edition.  All of these fonts are free and I found them all at dafont.com. It is such an awesome website and almost all of the fonts are free for personal use.    Christmas Trees Christmas Christmas Card Christmas Lights Christmas Snow Christmas Tree Christmas 3 PWChristmas Font Christmas Eve Frosty Holiday       Share Share...

It’s been a while since I have done a blogging post. It seems like they are always really popular. I guess it is mostly bloggers that read other blogs!  People seem surprised sometimes to learn that I am able to make money off of my blog. They are more surprised when they learn that my blog is less than a year old and most months I am making over $200. Granted, that’s not a real income, but it is a little extra money that I can use when I feel like doing a little shopping.  Most of my income comes from reviews. I...
