Creating With Your Children’s Work

DIY-KID-SHIRT-WITH-KID-HANDWRITING-USING-CRICUT-EXPLORE-AND-CRICUT-DESIGN-SPACE

I first shared Quinn's tshirt with his handwriting on the blog a bit back. Today, as part of the #DesignSpaceStar competition, I'm going to share how you can get your child's handwriting on your own creation. My team is working on fall projects and this shirt seems like the perfect Cricut project to kick off back-to-school. To create with your child's work make sure that their work is clear. Have them write or draw with a permanent black marker on a clean sheet of white paper. For our project, we held our phone over his paper and snapped a picture with our phones. We have a ...

Pillow for E’s Room Using Mod Podge Photo Tranfer

Letter Pillow via Mod Podge Photo Transfer

Eleanor's room continues to progress. I shared my progress on Eleanor's big girl room along with a Mood Board for her reading nook last week. No reading nook is complete without pillows. Today I am going to share with you how I customized a pillow I already had using Mod Podge Photo Transfer Medium. In case you didn't know, Eleanor knows ever letter of the alphabet. She can identify uppercase and lowercase in various fonts. Pointing to letters and naming them is one of her favorite things to do. The crazy thing is Ross and I didn't even know she could do this. One day the kiddos are in the ...

Updated Cork Board

Updated Cork Board

I seem to hold onto everything. It is a blessing and it is a curse. Lets just say my basement holds enough stuff to furnish and decorate a whole other house. Tell me I'm not the only one! One of the things that has been hanging out in the basement for some time is a bulletin board. The bulletin board hung in my room as a teen displaying all the important things of my teen life. Pictures, dance tickets and various memorabilia. I believe the bulletin board was a birthday gift from the little sis. Well our desk is sitting on a naked wall! Bare naked! I have been hemming and hawing with what to ...

No Sew Bunting for V-Day

Valentine's Day Bunting

  I love crafting and I love creating, but I actually have no true skills. This means if I can do it, anyone can do it. Literally! I love me some bunting! Hmm...What do I love about it? I love that it is festive and quick and easy. I love that scraps of fabric, a dollar spool of ribbon, a hot glue gun and a pair of pinking shears are all that is required.   I literally trace right onto the fabric with a pencil using my fancy stencil (pictured below). Then I cut out my handy triangles. I hot glue the top of the triangle and smack down the ribbon and just keep moving ...
