The Monster Makeover has begun! I’m redoing my boys room with monsters, and the main attraction will be these fantastic monster paintings/portraits. Love. Them. I bought the Bump in the Night Cricut Lite cartridge specifically for this project, and look at all these great monsters! Boys stuff is getting better everyday, yes? This project is […]

Almost a year later I am still in love with the wall decor in Linus’ room. I’d like to add a few more frames and icons eventually, but for now it’s perfect. I found frames at a thrift store, spray painted them green, and hung them without the glass framing some white vinyl Cricut images. […]

For Elliot’s birthday last month we got him some more Quadrilla marble run pieces and a new scooter. I didn’t have time/energy to figure out how to wrap an already assembled scooter, so I left it in the car and made a scavenger hunt for him instead. Here’s what you’ll need: cardstock envelopes Cricut or […]

I’ve been having so much fun with Riley Blake’s new Chevron cotton prints, and making a little monster pillow/friend to go in my boys’ new monster themed bedroom has been on the to-do list for quite some time. This boyish fabric was perfect for the project. The great thing about this project is if you […]

Pin It I am not good at chores. Or getting my kids to do chores… But I think these charts will help remind us and make it kind of fun (at least at first…). I’ve seen tons of chore chart ideas on Pinterest (like this one that inspired mine) and almost bought the makings for […]

For Elliot’s second birthday, I made him his very own birthday crown. I missed Gus’s first birthday (he had to wear Elliot’s) but I got around to it this year! I did Elliot’s out of felt and it was a huge pain, so I was really putting it off. But this time I used craft […]

These appliqued dish towels were my neighbor gifts this Christmas, and they were even easier than the bath towel! I chose patterns that had more angles than curves so the edge stitching would be easier. (The flower and leave patterns are from Walk in My Garden and the bird is from Home Decor.) The process […]

Christmas is definitely not the only time we need great handmade gift ideas, and an appliqued bath towel is so easy and inexpensive to make and would make a great birthday, baby shower, or just because gift. I made this for my nephew, and it’s probably my all time favorite things I’ve ever made, mostly […]

I just finished this fabulous calendar using the Designer’s Calendar Cricut cartridge (that I got on Black Friday!), and I’m thinking a customizeable calendar is a pretty great gift idea for this Christmas! I bought a large white board at Walmart ($15), wrapped the edges in black electrical tape, and drew a calendar grid in […]

If you’re looking for some handmade ideas for Christmas this year, a vinyl menu board is a very easy and very inexpensive project that would make a great gift! I bought an 8×12 sheet of flashing at Home Depot for $.97, a roll of black electrical tape for another $.99, and some vinyl scraps I […]
