Layered Vinyl Christmas Tree

I absolutely love making my own Christmas decor. Mostly because I have a hard time finding Christmas decor that I absolutely love in the store! One way that I always enjoy making decor is with vinyl. I heard a quote that I sort of liked, but it was a little too cheesy for my taste, so I changed it a bit. My saying is, “Laugh, Play, Jingle all the Way”. I love how this fun Christmas tree turned out with this little phrase on it. I have plans of making shirts for my girls with this same phrase on it!

Thankful Thanksgiving Sign

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that seems to get skipped a lot. The sad thing is it is one holiday that truly stands for something that we should all be paying attention to. It isn’t just a Thursday where we stuff our faces and make shopping plans for the next day. It is a time where we can really reflect on what we have been blessed with and surround ourselves with the people we love. I wanted to focus on being grateful for the entire month of November, so I made this sign that we can look at throughout the month and even add our own leaves to with things we are grateful for if we wanted to.

I love that this sign features geometric leaves. I am a sucker for geometric ANYTHING!

Curls Gone Wild Shirt Design Download

Having daughters that are 5 years apart makes it a little tricky when I want them to wear matching outfits. I have been lucky to find some really cute matching outfits, but sometimes my options are little to non existent. Thankfully, it is really easy to make matching shirts with iron on vinyl! That is exactly what I did when I made these adorable “Curls Gone Wild” shirts for my two curly haired little munchkins.

Christmas Truck Pillow Tutorial and Giveaway

I have become increasingly obsessed with all of the products featuring vintage cars and trucks carrying Christmas trees. It is such a classic holiday symbol and I love all of the decor that I have seen inspired by them. Last year, I picked up a cute cookie jar shaped like a truck with a Christmas tree on top and I bought another little ceramic truck this year. I knew I wanted a new Christmas pillow this year and putting this classic truck was going to be the perfect addition to the pillow! Making this Christmas truck pillow was incredibly easy, so follow along and you can make your own too!

DIY Minnie Mouse Knee Patch Pants and Shirt

If you have been a semi-long time reader, you know that we have a thing for Disney. I mean, who doesn’t? Saying you don’t like Disney is like saying you don’t like Santa Claus! Our love of Disney definitely skyrocketed when we became parents. Our little Disney loving princess made quite the impression on our family. In fact, on a phone call with Dave yesterday the point was made that there was no way he would have known that Minnie Mouse’s nieces  were named Millie and Melody prior to being a dad. Gotta love the useless information kids put in our brains sometimes!

Speaking of that Disney loving child, I made her a new little outfit inspired by her favorite Disney diva, Minnie Mouse!

I love creating character inspired clothing because I know I can make it in a way that is modern enough for mom to like, but is character enough for the little to like!

These Minnie Mouse patch pants and shirt were the perfect combination of both! They were insanely easy to create!

Easy Bright Confetti Pumpkins Halloween Decor

I have realized as I decorate for holidays that I really like non traditional holiday decor. If there are Halloween decorations in a store that are made with colors besides just orange and black, I always find myself gravitated to them. I love the different perspective that non traditional colors can bring to a holiday. This year is the first year that I have had the opportunity to decorate for Halloween in our current home because we moved almost exactly a year ago and the last thing I was about to do was decorate for Halloween when I was just trying to get my life out of boxes. It has been really fun to decorate this year and to take out old decor that I forgot that I even owned! One spot in my house that I knew I wouldn’t have decor for was my coffee table. We have a tray that goes on there that usually has succulents in it but I wanted something a little more festive for Halloween. I knew that I didn’t want it to be totally traditional because my living room is such a bright and cheery space.

The perfect solution was to make these adorable confetti pumpkins!

I love how much color these pumpkins bring to my Halloween decor but I think the best part about these is the fact that they are INSANELY easy to make! They are so easy to make, my four year old helped me with most of it! [Read more…]

Floral and Polka Dot Acrylic Makeup Case

This post contains affiliate links and was written as a part of an ambassadorship with Expressions Vinyl.

Need a great Mother’s Day gift idea? Mother’s Day can be hard holiday to shop for because you want your gift to be thoughtful. The problem is a lot of thoughtful gifts aren’t necessarily things that mom can use. I love the idea of combining both a practical gift with something thoughtful that she will love. That’s why I decided to cover a clear acrylic makeup case with vinyl to turn it into a floral and polka dot makeup holder and fill it with some of my favorite beauty products as the perfect Mother’s Day gift!

I think the best gifts to give are the ones that you would love to receive yourself. I know that I would love to receive this as a gift! It was really easy to make, so I will probably be making a duplicate for my own bathroom counter as well! To make your own you need… [Read more…]

Race Bib and Medal Display

Last June, I ran my first 5k. It may not seem like much to many runners out there, but it was a huge deal to me. I grew up battling asthma and always had a mental block when it came to running because I was afraid I would have an asthma attack. I overcame a lot to be able to run that first race and was able to run a few more 5k races and even a 10k! I have saved all of my race bibs and medals, but they have just been taking up space on a shelf in my closet. I wanted a way to display them without them taking up too much space, so I came up with this beautiful race bib and medal display!

Geometric Vinyl Baseball Tee

Printed baseball tees are all over the place these days. Most of the baseball tees that I have seen around have been floral print, but I love geometric shapes. When I was invited to participate in the Expressions Vinyl Geometric Week, I knew that I needed to make a geometric baseball tee!

Shamrock Patch Pants and Shirt

One of my favorite parts about holidays is getting my daughter all dolled up for them. Even the most simple holiday can turn into something special with the right outfit! I haven’t ever been the biggest fan of St. Patrick’s Day. I have always felt like it was a little cheesy. I made it my mission to create a cute outfit that wasn’t super cheesy.
