Have you heard the joy-ous news about Cricut's new mini machine? Meet the newest member of my Cricut family...the Cricut Joy! This little machine is the perfect addition to my family of Cricut machines and allows me to quickly personalize anything in 15 minutes or less. Another bonus is that it is compact and portable! Since it is only about one third the size of the Maker or Explore series, you can easily move it from room to room or take it on the go...no craft room or cutting mat required!

Cricut Joy is the perfect companion to quickly and easily personalize anything in 15 minutes or less. I made a birthday card, organization labels with smart vinyl, and infusible ink coasters in an afternoon.

Updated Entry with Hand Painted Wall

We had a small front entry that was boring and bland, but a few hours and a little paint fixed that! I used paint I already had on hand and shopped my house for accessories, making this update practically free!

Wearing Your Faith With Bible BB's

I never pass up an opportunity to share my faith or to share a faith based company. Today I am partnering with Bible BB's to share their line of adorable faith-based shirts, along with a giveaway! Bible BB's website carries children's books and apparel for the whole family!

Wearing Your Faith With Bible BB's

I received the "Coffee & Jesus" sweatshirt to review. It is made of a soft cotton/poly blend fleece in a women's cut, with a wide neck. If you do not want it to be fitted, I would size up. I am wearing an XL and it is slightly over-sized on me.

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.
