How to Use and Store Vinyl Scraps

If you are a hard core crafter, then you probably save all your scraps to use in other projects. Today I am going to show you how I store my scraps of vinyl and how I used them to decorate a makeup caddy. If you are a 90's girl like me, then you probably had a Caboodles. I actually still have mine and use it to hole my makeup. When I saw that Caboodles recently introduced a new DIY one, I was inspired to decorate my old one with fun 90's images.

DIY Stenciled Farmhouse Wooden Sign

Now that Christmas has come and gone, I can share one of the gifts I made, a stenciled farmhouse style sign. Farmhouse style signs are very popular right now and I am going to show you how you can make one for yourself. It was easy since I used my Cricut to cut a stencil out of vinyl!

How to Replace a Ceiling Light Fixture

Our house was but in the 60's, so we have those unattractive globe lights in our kitchen and hallway and they just have not been high on our list of priorities to update. A couple months ago, we ran across the most fabulous light fixture at Black Dog Salvage that was perfect for the entry hall! Of course, it did not fit perfectly (because nothing ever does in an old house) but I am going to show you how we made the light work.

How to Replace a Ceiling Light Fixture

First off, if you have never heard of Black Dog Salvage, which was made famous on the show Salvage Dawgs,  please go look it up. We are fans of the show and since the warehouse is only a couple hours away from us in Roanoke, VA we decided to take a day trip up there to look around. They have EVERYTHING you could ever want as far as architectural salvage, plus they also have a shop where they sell finished pieces made from salvaged items.

Ellie Claire 365 Devotional Journal Review

The journals were provided to me by Ellie Claire Gifts to review, but all opinions are my own.

I have recently been given the chance to work with Ellie Claire Gifts and am glad be able to share some inspirational resources with you. A few weeks ago, I reviewed a set of Art Journals and gave away two of them to a couple of my followers on Instagram! With the new year approaching, many of us are making goals and one of mine is always to spend time daily in the Word. One thing that helps me stay on track is having a daily devotional I can easily turn to.  I am excited to share with you a set of 365-day devotional journals.

With the new year approaching, many of us are making goals and one of mine is always to spend time daily in the Word. One thing that helps me stay on track is having a daily devotional I can easily turn to.





All three have beautifully illustrated covers with modern artwork. They also have an elastic strap that holds the book closed and a ribbon book mark to save your page. Each daily devotional ends with a thought to meditate on as well as a lined area to record reflections and thoughts.

3 Ways to Style a Plaid Shirt Dress

It has been a while since I have shared a fashion post on here, but I am back today sharing for a special cause. I am joining some of my fellow Aventura Ambassadors to create a Dessember Team to bring awareness to modern day human trafficking and slavery by wearing a dress each day in December.

I am sharing several ways to style a dress and talking about why I am wearing dresses every day in December to help bring awareness to modern slavery and human trafficking.

It’s a simple campaign that started out with one woman, Blythe Hill, who committed to wearing a dress for every day in December as a way to bring awareness to the problem of modern day human trafficking and slavery.

Ellie Claire Art Journal Review

The journals were provided to me by Ellie Claire Gifts to review, but all opinions are my own.

If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, you will know that one of my hobbies is Bible Journaling. It is one of the creative ways I spend time in the Word. I also like to use devotionals and journals, as well to take notes on the passages I am reading, or to use for sermon notes. That is why I was excited to be given the opportunity to review three different types of journals from Ellie Claire Gifts.

Each of the Ellie Claire journals provide a focus Scripture verse, prayer prompts, and journaling lines so you can record your personal thoughts and reflections to that day's reading.

They are designed to be used all year-long and are the perfect gift for girls/women of any age! Each of these journals contain journaling lines so you can record your personal thoughts and reflections. They also offer lettering and art tutorials, as well as, coloring pages.

Tips for Getting Your Guest Bedroom Ready for Visitors

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


Our guest bedroom does not get used a lot, but since I have family that lives out of town, we tend to have some overnight guests around the holidays. Since the bedroom stays closed up most of the year, this is the perfect time to air it out and spruce it up a bit for holiday house guests. 


 I am sharing my secret weapon for sanitizing the entire bed with HomeRight's Steam Machine, including the mattress and my tips on how to make your guest bedroom feel like home

Today, I am sharing my secret weapon for sanitizing the entire bed...pillows, comfortor, and mattress, since you cannot easily wash these things. I am also sharing a few tips on how to make your guest bedroom feel like home.

Painted Chipboard Christmas Wreath

It is time for this month's Craft and Create with Cricut Challenge, where several of my Cricut-loving blogger friends team up to bring you creative craft ideas. This month's theme is Christmas, to get you in the mood for holiday decorating.

Use the Cricut Maker to make a Christmas wreath from Chipboard and 9 other crafts.

I went back and forth over what I wanted to make. I really wanted to try my hand at using chipboard and the knife blade in my new Cricut Maker. I thought about making ornaments (which I will still do,) but settled on a layered chipboard "Joy" wreath for my door.
