Hey there friends! Can you believe Mother’s Day is just next weekend? If you’re still searching for that special mother’s day gift or maybe just a little something to freshen things up around the house for springtime, here’s a simple eucalyptus wreath that you can make! The great thing about eucalyptus is not only is it aromatic, but it can also repel bugs or fleas in your home.

Silhouette Project Magnetic Brag Board

Hey friends! I’m back in the ring again. Yes, I took a couple of weeks off for some much needed time to myself. The first of the year is always a busy time of regrouping, planning, goal setting, and even budgeting. But I’m happy to say that after the last two weeks, I’m back in the swing of things again and ready to get to work on my goals for 2014!! So let’s kick it off with a fun craft project shall we?

One of my newest and most favorite toys is my Silhouette Portrait machine. While I’m still learning all the amazing projects that you can create with the Silhouette machine, I did use the Portrait machine and some vinyl to create a gift for a very special Nana! You can use this idea for anyone that might enjoy a little “brag” board. I think it would make a fun magnetic board for even a teenage girl’s room! I’ll show you how I made it and even share a free cut file for you to make your own!

Gold Metallic Garland

Happy New Year!! Doesn’t it seem like as soon as you get everything ready for Christmas, it’s time to pack it all away and ring in the new year? I don’t usually do much in the way of decorating for the new year, but this time I have some gold glitzy garland that I hung for the holidays and it works great for the new year celebration. All you need is some twine, some shiny scrapbook paper, glue or tape and a hole punch. [Please click to continue reading…]

I’ll share the wintertime decorations with you and show you an easy way to take  a plain holiday wreath and dress it with a little flocking to make it just right for a snowy theme. Best of all, these decorations can stay up even after the holiday! [Please click to continue reading…]
