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. 🙂 My Halloween Mantel The...

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. The brass glowed at me!! Especially that big ugly ball! I asked Justin for weeks if I could spray paint it (it is his house still) and he kept saying no. Finally,...

I knew if I made something I’d want to cuddle with, she’d want to...

It’s almost Valentine’s Day!! It’s my first Valentine’s Day where I felt like decorating.

Make them of course! I love my LOVE DIY Wall Art!!! $5 Valentine’s...

The mirror is the perfect place for quick inspiration! It’s Monday morning. After the holiday season. I’ve wrapped, shipped, created, cooked, baked, partied, smiled, traveled, decorated, etc, etc, etc for the last several weeks. And now it’s the new year and I’m starting it off exhausted.
