Personalized Tote Bags with Name Definitions

Have you ever seen the artwork that is created for laundry rooms (or other room/chore) with the official definition of laundry and then a cheeky one underneath as an additional definition?  I have always wanted to create one of those but didn’t really have a place to put it.  Then, when we were told this months challenge for the Cricut Design Space Star was fashion and gear, I knew right away how I could use this idea but with a {Read More}

Baker's Twine String Art Canvas

Have you seen the string art that’s been circling the craftosphere for awhile now?  I’ve been meaning to make one for a long time and never got around to it, but when I started planning my daughters 9th birthday, I really wanted one for decoration.  Plus, it would do double duty – party decor to room decor.

Sweet Pickle and Apple Potato Salad

This sweet pickle and apple salad is the perfect side for a summer BBQ! Put a twist on the old potato salad recipe with this East Coast favorite.

Growing up, I loved potato salad – it was this delicious pickle and apple potato salad that was both crunchy and a little bit sweet.  It was my favorite, even though our get-togethers were filled with so many salad varieties to choose from, mostly potato based.  There was the bright yellow mustard salad (potatoes, mashed and creamed with mustard and a few other things that I can’t remember), and it’s cousin, the bright pink beet salad (potatoes mashed with beet {Read More}
