Fairy Garden Fit for a Princess

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ReadySetGro #CollectiveBias My daughter started some flower seeds in a “fairy garden” she had received in her Easter basket.  It is one of those little plastic greenhouses that you decorate on the outside, and then plant the seeds to grow them until they are mature enough to plant in the flower bed. Well, this put the idea of an actual fairy garden in her little head, {Read More}

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}

DIY Split Monogram Pillow

Christmas is coming and it’s coming fast!  We start our Christmas celebrations early in the month of December, as we live close to so much of our family….but at the same time, we can’t possibly have Christmas with everyone in one day.  So, the first celebration is at my grandma’s.  My grandma is one of those ladies who has everything, but I still love to give her something special for Christmas.  I decided to make her a Split Monogram Pillow, {Read More}

Festive Holiday Ornament Cards with Shutterfly

Thanks to Shutterfly for sponsoring today’s post.  All opinions are my own. We have had the best, warm, “un-fall like” weather around here!  It JUST turned cold this past weekend, and so I was able to take advantage of the warm weather and get some fall shots of my kiddos!  We headed out to a local park, and I started photographing them, in hopes of finding something cute and “Christmas card worthy”.  After two photo sessions, one for Natalie and {Read More}

Classic Disney Vacation Countdown

To me, classic Disney is the black, white, and red of Mickey and Minnie Mouse.  I do love seeing them in their various costumes, but I always gravitate back to their classic costumes.  So this year, I decided on that color scheme for our Disney Vacation Countdown.  I created this from all supplies I had on hand, and I have to say it’s one of my favorite ones I’ve made to date!
