Use Cricut's new print and cut feature to create these sparkly 3D Gift Tags this Christmas!

Chicken Fajita Bowls + 50 Easy Weeknight Meals

Chicken Fajita Bowls + 50 easy weeknight meals!

I am so excited for today’s post – it’s a post that has been in the work for almost two months now, pretty much ever since my kiddo’s went back to school.  I was sitting at the table, searching Pinterest for easy weeknight meals, like I seemed to constantly be doing.  Now that school was back in session, and I was back to work (I’m a teacher), I didn’t have time to be in the kitchen for hours, or even {Read More}

Sweet Dreams Vinyl Silhouette Lampshade

Pretty up a lampshade with this vinyl decal lampshade hack! A five minute fix that uses leftover vinyl scraps!

My daughter’s room used to be deep purple and hot pink, which as a five year old, she adored!  Now as a nine year old, we are in process of purging anything pink and redoing her room in shade of purple, orange, and mint green.  (We absolutely fell in love with this Moxie fabric line by Erin McMorris and we ran with it as our inspiration! Isn’t it perfect for a tween girls bedroom?) During this process, we had to {Read More}

Free Inspirational Printables


I shared this post last year over at Organize & Decorate Everything and I thought it was time I shared it here, in case anyone missed it!  I created these prints to coordinate with my new craft room (which may one day be tidy enough to share with you, but don’t hold your breath!) and they remind me everyday to walk my own journey. I created these printables to decorate the craft space, and decided to share them with you {Read More}

Felt Owl DIY Halloween Treat Bucket

Make this fun and cute owl DIY Halloween Treat Bucket for your little trick or treaters out of a coffee can and felt! Free printable template included!

I saw an adorable felt owl treat basket while shopping the other day, and I knew my oldest daughter would love it because she is so ga-ga for owls right now, but it was $12.  Last year, I paid $4 for a Monster High treat bucket and I thought I was losing my sanity – it’s one night, and one night that was already expensive enough.  I wasn’t spending $12 on a treat bucket.  So, I did what any logical {Read More}

Make Your Own Lacing Cards for Preschoolers

These easy and durable lacing cards can help develop your preschoolers fine motor and vocabulary skills!

I created these lacing cards for my youngest daughter today, but let me tell you, she had to fight off her older sister for them!  They had so much fun weaving the twine through the holes – so even though it says preschoolers, older kids can have fun with them too!    Want to make your own lacing cards?  This method is easy and durable!  Here’s what you’ll need: thin cardboard (think the back of a notebook – I used the {Read More}

What I Loved About BlogPodium 2014

Cotton candy in strawberry, pineapple, and guava flavours?  Yum!

Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend the BlogPodium conference in Toronto, Ontario.  Before this, I had only been to the SNAP conference in Utah, so this was my first Canadian blogging conference.  I was super nervous at first, because I didn’t have very many tight relationships when it came to Canadian bloggers like I have with the girls I attend SNAP with, and I am always nervous without a group around me. Thankfully the nerves didn’t last {Read More}

$5, 5 Minute Party Photo Booth Backdrop

This party photobooth backdrop can be created for under $5 and in less than 5 minutes!

One of the things my oldest daughter likes the most at her parties is having a fun photo booth with her friends.  (My youngest?  Heck, it’s hard enough to even get a picture of her blowing out her candles before she’s gone like the wind!)  So for the past few years, I have been creating two backdrops for every party – one for the food table and one for the photo booth.  Then this year, I stopped and though – {Read More}

Free Printable Halloween Banner


Is the weather starting to cool off where you live?  I wore my boots at BlogPodium last weekend for the first time, and while they were a nice change, I’m not sure if I’m fully ready to say goodbye to summer yet!  Either way, Halloween is coming soon, which means its time to get those costumes ready (and for us in Canada, making sure those costumes fit over snowsuits!) and the house dressed up for little trick or treaters.  This {Read More}
