CAMERONS-COFFEE-DIY-MUG-13

My Coffee Story

This is a sponsored post. I remember my first “coffee”. I was in college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (go Badgers!). I tried a french vanilla cappuccino. I was tired, it was cold and it smelled so good. Totally commercialized, sugar/chemical laden dessert that bares very little resemblance to coffee, I know! But that is […]

Hudson’s First Birthday

This week/weekend has been so crazy packed that I couldn’t even fit into one post. Well, at least not one post anyone would read. Wednesday, the 16th Hudson turned 1! This is baby #3 for me and I swear that with each kid, time just keeps going faster. I don’t know how we got here […]

Craft Night

A few weeks ago I was able to host a craft night with my sister and Cricut. Cricut flew out a rep who we adored and she set up three machines and brought along a whole bunch of iron-on. Each attendee was given a bag and I loved watching how everyone made their bag their […]

GROW-BUNTING-CRICUT

Simple Spring Feather Mantle

A couple sheets of paper and my Cricut|explore was all it took to bring a little spring to my my mantle. I used the Cricut|explore to cut feathers, letters and paper bows. The feathers were clipped to the twine for bunting, put behind a frame for art and clipped to the Instagram display. A super […]

WATERCOLOR-GIFT-TAGS-2

Turning Kid Art into Gift Tags

Eleanor loves to paint. She practically asks to paint everyday. She creates pieces like this. I started to feel bad about throwing them away, but I certainly wasn’t going to just save them all. That is when I had the idea to bust out my Cricut and turn them into gift tags. This literally took […]
