Sometimes you need a simple, cute craft that you can make while watching your favorite TV show. This burlap wreath is just that… simple with fun results! I made it while watching an episode of How I Met Your Mother (don’t you just love that show??).  It hung in my guest bedroom until my lovely Grandma spotted it and insisted on taking it home with her!...

My cousin’s Girl Scout Troop worked for years to save money to go to Europe between their junior and senior year of high school. They did all kinds of fundraisers and of course, a bake sale happened every year. Here are 5 Easter Cake Ideas that we made and sold a ton of for their bake sale. They loved making them and we loved helping! These ideas were all pretty simple to make. We used buttercream frosting (recipe) with Wilton’s Icing Colors for all of them. Here...

Time for some handmade thank you cards!! But first, I have to thank you. I’ve been absent for a bit… I’ve been busy getting married and pregnant!! Little boy Snyder is due July 23 and it has been a fabulous whirlwind since the wedding in September. Please forgive me. And you’re not the only ones I’ve asked for forgiveness from… I’ve been absent from friends too. So absent that I’m just now getting around to sending my friend Autumn...

My Halloween Mantel using the Cricut Explore!!! This was the first real project I created with my Cricut Explore and I love it! For the images, I used a combo of the images in the Cricut library and the Catacomb Manor set from SVGCuts.com. The paper is all from My Mind’s Eye Happy Haunting Collection. I used exactly what SVGCuts used because I was so new that I didn’t know how to be creative on my own! No worries, that has changed now. 🙂 The Cricut Graveyard My...

My friend Autumn G bought her first home! I’m so excited for her!!! I made her this lovely Spring Yarn Monogram Door Hanging for a housewarming gift! She loved it but her husband thought it was a little girly. I didn’t tell him but I intended for it to be girly. Hee. I hope he still likes me after reading this… I got the “G” from CraftCuts.com – they are fantastic and have a bazillion choices! This “G” is 14 inches tall and it...

It’s party time!!!! Bachelorette party time to be specific!! We are going to do some chair dancing so I thought I’d made these adorable hair tie Bachelorette Party Favors for everyone! I kept seeing them on Etsy but I wanted something specific to my party. It was so easy that my Maid of Honor can’t even be mad at me for making party favors for my own party! To Make the Card I made the card on my Cricut Explore. The font is Jenna Sue. It’s free! I made...

My (now) fiancé, Justin, loves to watch movies. Every time we’d sit on the couch and watch a movie at his place, this big, ugly brass chandelier would glow from over the kitchen table. Really, it glowed at me, screaming for a makeover. Ideas were forming in my head for the the Ugly Brass Chandelier Makeover. I asked Justin for weeks if I could spray paint it (it is his house still) and he kept saying no. Finally, one night, he said yes! The DIY makeover happened the...

Dontcha just love Handmade Thank You Cards?? I do! I love to make them!

Happy Football Season!!! My man is a HUGE Tennessee Titans fan so I knew his front door would have to get adorned with a football yarn wreath! This was my first project with my Cricut Explore and boy, did I pick a hard one! Back then craft foam wasn’t a setting so I had to figure that out by myself.  I also didn’t know about the deep cut blade but it really helped out during this project! Let’s jump into the details.   Making the Yarn Wreath This is actually...

My wedding invitations are done!!!! I couldn’t be more excited because I LOVE them!! I started with a Wedding Invitation Kit and  thought I’d share with you what I learned along the way! 1) Buy More than You’ll Need You’re going to mess some up.
