Y’all… I’m getting so excited for my wedding! Like, a little outta control excited! I just put my DIY Rustic Wedding Invitations in the mail so now I can share them with you!!!! A Little More About My Wedding My wedding is at a farm and will be outdoors (God willing, please send up a prayer for good weather on Sept 6!). Our colors are navy and gold, both colors that my man and I love. The feel we are going for at the wedding is rustic, timeless, fun, and romantic...

Oh my goodness y’all. I had quite a time trying to get liners to fit the envelopes in my Gold Foil Dot on Kraft Invitation Kit from Michael’s and Gartner Studios.  I searched and searched for a DIY Envelope Liner Template that would work but I couldn’t find one. These weren’t standard envelopes – they have a weird slope on them. I tried A9 liners and A7 liners but they didn’t quite fit because these envelopes sloped up in a weird way. So...

This super adorable DIY sweatshirt took me about 10 minutes to make. As I often do, I find myself shopping online. I’m sure you never do that! 😉 On one of my favorite sites, ModCloth, I saw this super cute sweatshirt for $49.99. Ummm…. love the shirt, hate the price tag. It was also a little too floral for my tastes. How I Made My DIY Sweatshirt So, I headed over to Amazon where I found this sweatshirt for $20 & free shipping (affiliate linked image). If you...

During the holiday season, I had to make so many little gifts for so many people! This year I chose to make some really nice Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Mix! It got rave reviews and it was super rich, thick, and creamy. It’s the best hot chocolate I’ve had when I mixed it with milk and marshmallows. I followed this recipe from Nikki over at the SeededAtTheTable.com that I found on Pinterest. I used  Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa, 1.54 pound (affiliate link) and...

Oh. My. Cuteness. I am just in love with this Bear Hug Card I just made. Check it out… It all started when my bestie called upset because she has to move from Florida to upstate New York. Brrrrrr…. She’s quite bummed and so am I.  I was out shopping already so I bopped into Paper Source to pick up a card for her. I saw this Bear Hug Card for almost $7 and loved the concept! I say “HUGS” all the time. While I loved the concept, I didn’t...

There’s nothing better in the colder months of the year than a mug of hot cocoa, big fluffy slippers and a comfy cushion to cuddle into which is why Valentine’s Day pillows always hit the right mark no matter who you’re making one for. The aunt, the daughter, grandma, or good ol’ mom, whoever you think would really LOVE a hand made cushion on February 14th then now’s the time to get sewing. Below are 14 of our favorite Valentine’s pillows and...

Oh my goodness! I’m in LOVE with this fleece pillow featuring the state of Illinois! It’s just so soft and touchable… it makes me want to cuddle up with it! I made it for my friend Laura’s birthday. We live in Tennessee but she moved here from Chicago and I knew she was missing home. I knew if I made something I’d want to cuddle with, she’d want to cuddle with it too! And boy, was I right! She loved her personalized gift! How to Make a Personalized...

It’s almost Valentine’s Day!! It’s my first Valentine’s Day where I felt like decorating. Normally, being the single gal that I usually am on V-Day, there isn’t a Valentine decoration to be seen for miles at my place. Well, that’s all changed since I’ve met my handsome man! I’m all inspired these days so I thought I’d share with you! I’ve really only decorated my mantle but it’s a start! With my Valentine’s...

I absolutely love having a mantle. After years of living in an apartment without one, it’s taking me a while to realize just how versatile a mantle is for decorating! I’m totally digging it! As I was taking my Christmas decorations down, I decided that Valentine’s Day decorations should go up! But wait… I didn’t have any Valentine’s Day decorations. What’s a crafty girl to do? Make them of course! $5 Valentine’s Day Apothecary Jars...
