Easy Summer Tomato and Cucumber Salad

Summer means BBQ's, picnics, and pool parties. It is hard to know what type of food to bring to these outings, especially if the dish is going to be sitting out for a couple of hours. That is why I came up with this easy Summer Tomato and Cucumber Salad, which is refreshing and can withstand sitting outside since it does not have a mayo based dressing.

This easy tomato and cucumber salad is the perfect side dish for any summer BBQ.

Do you like to use trays in your home decor? They are perfect for creating vignettes, corralling small items, or using on top of an ottoman to hold drinks. We probably all have a wooden tray around that could use an update. I am joining with Curly Crafty Mom and Sweet Parrish Place today to share three ideas on how to update a basic tray!

How To Make a Thank You Card With Cricut Pens

I am embarrassed to admit that I have had my Cricut for almost a year and have yet to make cards with it! It is such an easy way to save money and create a custom card for someone. Recently, I needed several "Thank You" cards for my AWANA volunteers at church, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make my own. I also learned how to use the Cricut pens in the process.

Create Thank You cards in one easy step with the Write and Cut feature on your Cricut machine.

Tips for installing Luxury Plank Vinyl Flooring

As part of our basement renovation, we decided to use Luxury Vinyl plank flooring throughout our new space. The reason we picked this is we could install it ourselves, it's relatively budget friendly, we can lay it over concrete floors that are not 100% level, and it can withstand moisture. Our goal is to use the basement bathroom for guests during the summer when the pool is open, which means wet feet coming in and out. We also have a dog, so we need something to withstand his nails and muddy paws.

What I am Wearing - White on White

Nothing says Summer like an all white outfit! Wearing white on white does not have to be a hard look to pull off. I know if you have small children then white can be a hard color to wear due to having little, dirty hands around. I am even hesitant at times, because I am clumsy and afraid of spills.  Wearing all white with a pop of color is a great Summer look to try on occasion.

How to Make Faux Leather Earrings With Cricut

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link

It is no secret that I love fashion and jewelry! I have recently been using my Cricut to make earrings, necklaces, and decorative tassels using faux leather. It is so fun and addictive and you can easily make ready-made projects, like these faux leather earrings in the Cricut Design Space™ or design your own using the software!




Today I am going to show you how I made two pair of faux leather earrings using the Cricut Design Space™. One is a "Make It Now" project and the other I created using the Shapes.

My Experience With Concrete Leveler

As part of our basement renovation, we are updating the floors throughout, which means removing old tile and prepping the area to lay vinyl plank flooring. To be honest, this whole process was harder than I expected it to be, so I wanted to share my experience with you, along with tips on how to use self leveling cement. Disclaimer: We are not professionals, this is just some of the things we learned from the process.
