Customize your Instax camera with a DIY sticker skin. Hundreds of possibilities!

Y’all know I’ve been a long time lover of my Instax gear, my little FUJIFILM family is so much fun to play with! I’ve recently added a new baby to the family, the Instax Mini 70. This new guy has some really great features like the mirrored selfie shots, auto exposure, and even a macro mode! […]

Big bubble gum canvas print from Shutterfly

This girls bedroom decor was actually a long time in the making. I started doing the painting back at the end of September, but that same week our house got broken into, and it threw a wrench into the plan. Then it seemed I was right into holiday planning and the bedroom got put together but […]

Wrap styrofoam hearts in yarn for a kid friendly Valentine's Day craft

You might be shaking your head in disbelief when I tell you Valentine’s Day is less than a month away! Seriously, how did the last month slip through the hour glass?

Free Rise and Shine Silhouette Cut File. Use in various ways, on mugs, painted signs, scrapbooking layouts

A few weeks back while in the So You Think You’re Crafty competition I shared a mug I had created for ‘In the Kitchen’ week.  Time got away from me and I never did share the free cut file that went along with the project. Since then, I’ve had a lot of inquires into the […]

Happy New Year folks! This Christmas Decoration Storage post may be a little off coming to you well into January. My intentions were good, but I never took into account the amount of time it would actually take to undo 11 Christmas trees (see them all here).  Plus I did a little survey on my […]

Country Girl Gift Guide

December 13th, 2015 | Review

This Country Girl Gift Guide should have came to you much earlier in the season so you could cross off all these must haves off your list. However, I find that I do most of my ‘me’ shopping after the season has passed so I can take advantage of the boxing day deals and I wanted […]

Kids string art Christmas craft

This week my daughter is having some of her gal pals over for a little Christmas party, so I’ve been gearing up some fun Christmas craft ideas that we can make together. Every time I whip out my Instax Camera a.k.a. ‘the magic camera’ the kids are blown away, so I thought it would be fun […]

Add a christmas card ornaments to gifts for a personal touch

I often struggle with gift buying, kids are never a problem, they are easy to satisfy. When it comes to adults like Grandma and Grandpa they typically have received every gift under the sun and then some, so it is nice when you come across a gift that they will actually put to good use. […]
