Gift giving can be stressful and expensive. And the last thing you want is to spend money on a gift that your loved one won’t really use.
I always try to give my family gift ideas that I will get a lot of use out of. That’s why I’m filling my wish list this Christmas with crafting supplies that I can’t afford or just won’t get around to buying for myself.
If you have a crafter in your life… or if you’re the crafter looking for a way to treat yourself… here’s my ultimate list of Cricut accessories, supplies, and vinyl that all crafters would love. (more…)
I LOVE Halloween! 🎃👻🕸 It’s one of my favorite holidays. And I love creating Halloween decor and shirts.
I designed a few shirts inspired by my favorite vintage horror films. You can see those here.
But I also wanted something a bit more whimsical. So I designed these SVGs based on a couple children’s classics.
And you can download and use them with your own Cricut or Silhouette! (more…)
Etching glass is a super chic way to personalize all kinds of glasses… from water and wine to shot glasses. They make great gifts too. (more…)
I’m obviously a big fan of saving money. But I’ve never liked the idea of having to buy something you didn’t already want, to get a discount or money back. In my opinion, that’s not a good deal.
But that’s why I love the offer this week at Publix! (9/13/18-9/18/18) (more…)
I love Halloween and I’m a pretty big horror movie fan. Around this time of year, I start binging my favorite classic horror films.
I would say my favorites are:
- Friday The 13th
- The Exorcist
- The Shining
You may have noticed, most of them are from the 70s… “arguably the most fruitful and consistently excellent decade for horror cinema,” according to Collider. And I totally agree.
To honor a few of my favorite scary movies I made shirt designs that true classic horror movie fans will love. (more…)
I love using my Cricut to make shirts with vinyl. But some projects call for a different kind of look.
That’s why I tried out the screen printing method. And after a few tries, I’m hooked!
Here’s a simple how-to and a few things I learned along the way. (more…)
Chances are, if you know about Pusheen, you’re obsessed with Pusheen. And if you don’t know about Pusheen, prepare to become obsessed. My daughter absolutely loves the pudgy little cat and she got me hooked too.
This cat loves food, being fancy and being lazy. So it’s pretty much my spirit animal.
Here are some must-have gifts for the Pusheen lover on your list, including yourself, and they’re all super affordable. (more…)
We make a big deal out of celebrating birthdays in our house. And I get super excited around my daughter’s birthday each year because I get to create a pretty pink party with all things whimsical and magical and, this year, paw-sitively purr-fect.
My daughter loves Pusheen and Pusheen loves cupcakes, so we combined it all into a Pretty Pusheen & Cupcake Party. (more…)
You can have great intentions to spend less money. Then enter children. And boredom. And whining. Next thing you know, you’ve shelled out hundreds of dollars to entertain the family and not have much to show for it after.
Here are some ideas to get you through any weekend, no matter if you’re trying to save lots of money or a little money. And if you’re attempting a no-spend weekend with that wallet completely on lockdown? You can do that too.
But first thing’s first. You have to plan ahead to avoid some basic pitfalls. All good plans can implode the minute the first person (kid or adult) gets hangry. (more…)
My baby girl has a ton a hair bows. Truth be told, she’s starting to grow out of them… but I’m not. I kinda wish she would stay a little girl who wears hair bows all her life. But I know that won’t happen.
In the meantime, we needed a better way to store all of her bows that were just shoved into a box in her closet. It was a bad system and it was driving me crazy.
But I didn’t want to spend any money, obvi, so I made her a pretty, hanging bow organizer with stuff I had around the house. I turned a couple of old boxes into a custom, chic looking organizer. (more…)
