Christmas can be super stressful, not least of all because of all the gifts you have to buy.
One of my ways to save money around the holidays is to give a lot of DIY gifts. It also makes the gifts more personal.
Here are a few ways you can make Christmas gifts from the heart, on a budget. (more…)
There are so many cool types of vinyl you can use with your Cricut or Silhouette. You can check out some gorgeous options here in my Ultimate Cricut Crafters Gift Guide. Glitter has to be one of my favorite types of heat transfer vinyl, along with anything iridescent! 😍
And I’ve recently fallen in love with patterned HTV. But I learned (the hard way) that you need to treat it differently than regular HTV. Here’s how to use it and what I’ve learned. (more…)
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 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…)
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…)
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…)
The start of the school year can be stressful for kids, parents, and teachers.
And just as parents are breathing a sigh of relief that summer camp costs or DIY entertainment are over, teachers are taking over the care and feeding of our little humans.
Here are a few cute gift ideas to help teachers start the year off on a good foot. (more…)
