 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
