Ohio State “HOME” Canvas

I am all about larger HTV projects lately!  My first one was this DIY Split Monogram Pillow I made for my grandma as a Christmas gift.  After I made hers, I went on to make two more for my brother and sister in law for a gift as well.  I am sensing some wedding gifts coming from that file, too!  I decided to attempt another project for our new home using a larger HTV file.  Have you seen those cute {Read More}

All opinions are mine alone. #SchoolYearReady #CollectiveBias Back to school brings out the organizer in me.   Does it you?  It’s something about a “new year” that does it.  When I was teaching, I could NOT wait to start a fresh lesson plan book, a clean classroom, a schedule, and new pens.  And lists.  Lists of students, things to do, lessons to plan, the list goes on and {Read More}
