Mobile S'mores Caddy

This is a sponsored post written by me in collaboration with HomeRight. All opinions are mine alone.

It is that time of the year when we can finally enjoy the outdoors! It has warmed up and most of the pollen is gone. Now that the basement renovation is complete, we are focusing our efforts on our back yard. One of the items on our project list was adding a fire pit area, since we love to hang out by the pool and entertain friends and family throughout the summer. This gives us an additional seating area and a place to roast marshmallows for s'mores!

 I am sharing an idea for a Mobile S'mores Caddy along with my favorite new tool from HomeRight that will get your fire going in no time!

Custom Yoga Mat Using Cricut EasyPress

It is no secret that I love my Cricut and customizing all the things! When I saw Kristen from A Girl and Her Glitter use iron on vinyl on a yoga mat, I had to try it. It was the perfect project for me to try out using my new Cricut EasyPress and SportFlex vinyl.

Did you know you could use iron on with a yoga mat? I used the new SportFlex Iron on and my Cricut EasyPress to customize a yoga mat!
I have been wanting to try the EasyPress for a while, so I was excited to receive one, along with an EasyPress mat as part of the Cricut blogger program.

Missing Sock DIY for Laundry Room

Raise your hand if you have a pile of socks missing a mate. Every week I have at least one sock that goes missing and I usually just throw it in the drawer and hope I find it's mate in the next wash, but sometimes it gets buried under the other socks never to be seen again! I decided to make a fun piece of chalkboard wall decor for our new laundry room, that also would hold the socks missing a mate.

Raise your hand if you have a pile of socks missing a mate. I have a DIY solution with this chalkboard wall decor project!

What I am Wearing - Striped Tee Shirt Dress

I am back with another style collaboration with five of my fellow Aventura Ambassadors! I love a comfy t-shirt dress, so I am excited to show you several ways to style the Topanga dress from Aventura Clothing. It is probably no surprise that I chose this dress, since I have a thing for stripes!

The Topanga dress is perfect for throwing on with canvas tennis shoes or flip flops for running errands or you could dress it up with a colorful scarf and wedge sandals for a date night.

How To Curve Text in Cricut Design Space

Did you know Cricut has a new feature that allows you to curve text in Design Space? Previously, the only way you could create curved text is my manually arranging the letters, which was a pain. The new Curved Text Tool is so easy that I could not wait to try it!

How to Remodel a Basement on a Budget

This post has been a long time coming...about 2 1/2 years to be exact! This basement renovation was one of the main reasons I started this blog. I wanted to chronicle all the work we did on our basement with befores and afters, DIY tips, and lessons we learned along the way in hopes to help some other weekend warriors like us. Before I start, I have to give a shout out to my husband who worked tirelessly along my side and did not give up, even when we both wanted to. I have to say, if your marriage can survive a home remodel, it can survive about anything!

See how we took an ugly basement and turned it into a bright and cozy retreat along with adding laundry, bathroom, and mudroom spaces! Learn money saving tips and tricks from a DIYer.

Llama Painted Canvas Wall Decor

One of my friends is pregnant with her first child and the nursery theme is llamas. If you have been on Pinterest or social media at all, you will know that the llama trend is going strong, so I jumped at the chance to make something for her! I asked her to send pics of her nursery for inspiration and once I saw the brightly colored animal prints she picked, I had to do something along those lines. I had an 8x10" canvas on hand, so I decided to get out my paint and Cricut machine and go to work!

Add a touch of whimsy to a nursery with DIY painted llama pom pom wall art made with vinyl and Cricut.

How to Style a Jacket for Spring

It has been a couple of months since I have shared a fashion post here on the blog. It has just been so cold and yucky that I did not want to go outside without being bundled up like Randy in A Christmas Story! But, now Spring is here and I have received several new pieces from the Aventura Spring 2018 line. I even did a Live unboxing on Facebook to show you what I got and a few ways I plan to style them.  I am joining some of my fellow Aventura Ambassadors to share how we style a utility jacket during this transitional season. I am styling the Tara jacket with a striped tee and olive green joggers.
