Magnolia Leaf Wreath With Cricut

I am always looking for ways to upcycle things around the house. After Christmas, when it was time to take down my Christmas cards, I put them to the side to use for a project. I decided to use them in place of card stock in a Magnolia Leaf Wreath made using my Cricut Maker. I got a chance to use several of the tools available for the Maker in this project.

Upcycle those old Christmas cards and make a Magnolia Leaf Wreath using the Cricut Maker.

MCM Felt Christmas Decor with Cricut

I have been feeling the Mid Century Modern vibe the last couple of years and want to bring more of that into my Christmas decor. This year, I got to work and used my Cricut and transformed a plain tree skirt, that I already had on hand, with felt (inspired by this post from Krys at Melo-Drama.) I also made some colorful felt house ornaments.

Guest Bathroom Update with Rust-Oleum

Do you have guests coming for the holidays or is your builder grade bathroom in need of an update? My bathroom was not horrible, but it needed a refresh. Since my son  (who mainly used this bathroom) was away at college, I had some time to tear it apart for a few days. See how I updated our guest bathroom over a couple of weekends with some paint and new accessories...for less than $200!


I painted the vanity shortly after we moved in with a chocolate brown paint and it just made the bathroom feel a little dark. After I painted my kitchen cabinets with Rust-Oleum's Cabinet Transformation kit and had some left over, I decided to use it to update the vanity and medicine cabinet. Here is what the bathroom looked like when I started.

Holly Lane Jewelry Review

I am partnering with Holly Lane Jewelry to bring you an unique gift idea. All opinions are my own.

One of the perks of blogging is being introduced to new brands. I only partner with brands that I am passionate about and enjoy being able to share them with others. I recently was introduced to Holly Lane Jewelry through one of the Christian networks I work with and I am always excited to share faith-based shops.

Holly Lane Handmade Christian Jewelry

Holly Lane's line of sterling silver Christian jewelry is intentionally designed to create opportunities to share Christ with others, and to be worn as a personal reflection of faith. These unique designs are based on verses from the Bible and are meant to catch the attention of others and spark conversation. Each piece is designed by jewelry artist Tiffany Scott and handmade in Virginia.

Ideas for organizing a small craft room using Cricut vinyl

I skipped posting last week, because I honestly did not have time to make much progress. I am still waiting on the floor paint from Rust-Oleum that they are generously sending me. (Since it is a new product, there have been some delays.) In the meantime, I have been trying to organize my craft supplies a little better...mainly the rolls of vinyl, card stock, and chipboard. I have moved things around half a dozen times and think I have finally settled on a system...for now.
