How to Make a Vinyl Monogrammed Shower Caddy #SchickSummerSelfie ad

I love to work with vinyl!  It’s a great way to personalize just about anything.  I’m using outdoor vinyl along with my Silhouette Cameo to create this vinyl monogrammed shower caddy for my daughter to use while she’s away at college.

First, I used a monogram file from the Silhouette store.  I cut it out using the standard settings for vinyl for the Cameo.  Next, […]

I’m so Southern I drawl when I dream, so putting together a honey themed gift basket means pairing it with biscuits for this Southern girl.  I think a gift basket should reflect the individual giving it as well as being a good match for the person receiving it.   This is a perfect gift […]

This project is so easy and so fun.  You just need cheap felt from your local craft store, a leaf die (I’m using Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves), a grapevine wreath, a hot glue gun and a die cutting machine.  I’m using the Cut ‘n’ Boss.

Want to Get Published in Craft Magazines? You Can Do It! #hobbylobby #cricut #crafts #getpublished #howto

 

I’ve never been interested in getting published until this year. I decided that I’d make it a goal for 2014. I’ve been highlighted on different blogs and by different companies but there is just something great about seeing your work in print…or in a digital magazine too, I guess. Though for me, print is better. I just like turning the pages. Like…I recently bought this […]

Grow Your Own Sprouts and Eat Healthy, Save Money & Know The Source #Healthy #Sprouts #Alfalfa
