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.

Craft Room Organization - (One Room Challenge) Week 4

I am back with the progress on my Craft Corner for the One Room Challenge. To refresh your memory, this is a twice a year blogger event hosted by Linda at Calling It Home, that consists of 20 featured designers and over 150 guest participants showcasing a room makeover that they have to complete in just 6 weeks.

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.

Craft Room Makeover - (One Room Challenge) Week 1

Here I go again! I am joining the One Room Challenge as a Guest Participant. If you remember, I made over my kitchen this past Spring (and didn't quite finish.), but I did pull off a Mudroom from scratch in the Fall 2017 ORC. This time, I am taking on a much smaller project, so hopefully this will go much better.

How to Use the Cricut Maker’s QuickSwap Toolset

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.


Just when you thought the Cricut Maker could not get even more awesome, Cricut releases four new tips! When Cricut launched Maker 2 years ago, it made a promise to come out with more tools and materials, so that Maker could grow with creators as they master new crafts.  These tools can be used only with the Maker, because it was specially designed with an Adaptive Tool System. This system brings together three major technologies that give Maker professional class cutting versatility and performance.

Cricut recently introduced more tools as part of the Adaptive Toolset and they are part of the QuickSwap line, which allows makers to quickly change out the tools during a project. These new tools allow creators to utilize even more techniques, such as engraving and debossing, and materials such as metal, with Maker, further expanding Maker’s capabilities.

How to Contour Images with Cricut

Have you ever found an image that you liked in Cricut Design Space, but you wanted to change it slightly? It is possible to change most images using the Contour feature. I took two images and modified them to create a new image, using Ungroup and Contour.
