Doodling Sermon Notes in a Travelers Notebook

I am partnering with DaySpring to share a look at the new Illustrated Faith Doodles to Live By kit. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link

Do you have trouble keeping your mind focused on the pastor's message? I confess, this is something I struggle with every Sunday morning. I am guilty of allowing my mind to wander to mundane things, like what I am fixing for lunch, ideas for my next blog post, and even what I am going to wear tomorrow. I am embarrassed to share this with you, but I know I can't be the only one. We are busy people and it is hard to get our mind to slow down when it's used to multitasking all the time.

Keep your mind from wandering by Doodling Sermon Notes in a Travelers Notebook

That is where taking sermon notes comes in! I have only been doing this for the last few weeks, but it has helped me focus on the message and give me something to refer back to later.

Summer is right around the corner, so now is the perfect time to spruce up your outdoor spaces! My favorite way to update a tired piece of furniture is by using spray paint. If you have been following me for a while, you will know I have been wanting to update my faded green bistro set that sits on my porch. The weather finally cooperated with my schedule so I was able to get my paint on!

I am partnering with Oriental Trading to share some affordable VBS crafts with you, along with some tips on how to stay on budget.

Vacation Bible School season is quickly approaching and as Director of VBS, I am in charge of coordinating our VBS program. I attend a smaller sized church so our budget is minimal as well. I have to get creative in order to pull off a fun VBS program, while working with budget constraints.

I am jumping on the succulent train, y'all...thanks to my friend Erin at Faith Food Family Fun! I have been seeing them everywhere and they are so cute, plus they are pretty easy to care for.

Bible Journaling - Organizing Your Supplies

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience

I have been Bible Journaling for about two years now and have collected an assortment of supplies. I use everything from colored pencils, paints, gelatos, and stamps to stickers and other ephemera. Up until recently, I had everything thrown in a medium sized basket and it was kind of a mess. When I saw the Everything Beautiful Bible Journaling Bag from DaySpring I knew I HAD to have it!

DIY Pom Pom Tree Branch Decor

Pom poms are popping up in crafts everywhere and after picking up a couple of packs for .50 a piece at Goodwill, I had to put them to use in a Spring DIY project. This project took about 10 minutes and was practically free, but the result is a cute pom pom tree branch decor!

What I am Wearing - How to Style Camo

Camo print is not just for hunters anymore. It has been popping up all over in pants, scarves, shoes, tees, and even accessories. I am not going to lie, it has taken me a while to get on board with this trend because I grew up in the country and I still tend to think of it as hunter gear. But, seeing how cute it can be on other fashionistas has inspired me to try it!

Styling camo does not have to be intimidating if you follow a few  a few guidelines

Spring Porch Decor and Painted Wooden Butterflies

Once the flowers start popping up through the earth, I am in the mood to put away all my winter decor and break out the pastels. This year, I made a new wreath for my door, a garden flag using a place mat, and gave my wooden butterflies a new life with some paint.

DIY Garden Flag Using a Place Mat

Do you like to decorate with garden flags for every season? It can get expensive buying different flags for each season and holiday, but I have an affordable solution. Make your own garden flag for less than $5 using a place mat from the Dollar Tree! I got the idea from seeing THIS FLAG that Pretty Handy Girl created.


After creating the basic flag from a place mat, you can customize it with iron on designs, glued on embellishments, or a vinyl monogram.

Iron On Mermaid Shirt - A Cricut Make It Now Project

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

I confess that I have an obsession with mermaids. I even had the "mermaid" hair last summer! When I ran across the Mermaid Pillow in the "Make It Now" projects in the Cricut design space, I had to check it out. Since a mermaid pillow does not really fit in with my home decor and I live in a house of boys, I decided to put the design on a shirt instead.

I have been wanting to make one of these for a long time, after seeing them all over Pinterest and in stores, but was intimidated.

Bible Journaling - Diving Deeper in Your Faith

I am partnering with DaySpring to share how you can use devotional kits to dive deeper in your faith. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

I have fallen in love with Bible Journaling and try to spend a few days a week in my Bible this way. But, I have to admit, I fall into a rut at times. I feel like my journaling is not as pretty as other peoples I see on social media or I do not feel inspired by a particular verse. This is when I need to take a step back and remind myself WHY I journal. I journal to spend time in God's Word and get a deeper understanding of specific verses.

Sometimes you just need the proper tools to inspire you to spend time in the Word, like the Craving Connection Devotional Kit!

Sometimes you just need the proper tools to inspire you. I may download free devotionals from the Illustrated Faith website to kickstart my creative juices or use a Bible Journaling kit like Illustrated Faith's Craving Connection Devotional kit from Dayspring.

Pamper Yourself With Imperial Glamour Beauty Box

The great thing about subscription boxes is that it allows you to try new products before you buy them. When I was approached by Imperial Glamour to try their boxes, I was happy to, in exchange for my honest thoughts. The boxes are filled with high quality, natural, organic, and vegan products made in the US or Canada. I like the fact that she supports local, small businesses that are primarily owned by women.


The thing that I like about the IG Beauty box is that each month is a different theme. January contained only hair products and February contained lip products. There are two box options: the Deluxe for $25 and the Mini for $16.

Why I Quit My Job (It's Not what You Might Think!)

First of all, I am not retiring and I am not making enough money blogging to call it my full-time job. (Both of those were questions I got when I gave my notice) If you have been following along with my personal story, you will know that I recently quit my job of 16 years to take a part time job at my church. I have shared some of the backstory in previous posts, but I want to give you an update today. My hope is that I can inspire one of you to follow God's call on your life, even when it is scary.

Why I quit my job and the story of God's calling on my life.

If you are new here, just a quick refresher: I left my comfortable job at the end of December to take an Office Manager position at my church. I felt stuck and unfulfilled in my job and had been praying for the last couple of years that God would show me where he wanted me. I knew I wanted to do something that allowed me to share my faith, and when my Pastor called several months ago with a proposal, I initially dismissed it, (because of the pay) but then I stopped to think that maybe this was my answered prayer. After much praying and crying and discussion and doubt and more praying, I decided I had to go for it!

Our Basement Renovation - Drywall, Drywall, and More Drywall

In my last update, I shared some of the random projects we were finishing up so we could embark on our dry wall journey. We have mostly been consumed with hanging drywall over the last few months. We had a ton of area to cover..three entire rooms, a couple of hallways, a mudroom, and the ceilings. I am not going to lie...hanging drywall sucks, but the upside is that it is starting to look finished!

See what a difference drywall and lighting made in our basement!

Styling Leopard Print Sneakers + Link Up

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

First off, I am excited to be hosting Fabulous Friday with my stylish blogger friend Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots! We have a similar sense of style and are both "Carolina girls." I have been following her blog and joining her link-up for probably around a year now and we have become insta-friends as well, because she is so sweet and supportive. I hope you will stick around at the end of this post and check out Jennie's blog, as well as some of the other lovely ladies that have linked up today.


Last summer, while at the beach, I hit up the outlet mall looking for some good deals. When I ran across these leopard print VANS on the clearance rack at Famous Footwear, I knew I had to have them! I had seen them all over Instagram and had wondered if I could pull them off.

Did you know you could use your Cricut to cut materials other than paper or vinyl? When I saw a couple of my blogger friends making earrings out of faux leather, I had to try it! Cricut sells a faux leather, which I used in my Heart shaped barrette project, but I had real leather on hand, so I thought I would try it.

DIY Painted Journal Cover

I have a weakness for pretty notebooks and usually have several on hand, for taking notes or jotting down project ideas. Recently, I had a chance to work with Oriental Trading, so I picked out a pack of small journals with a white canvas cover. I thought they would be perfect for a Bible Journaling workshop I was hosting, for those who did not have a Bible.

Customize your journal with a DIY Painted cover!

I had to save one for myself so I could try my hand at painting my own cover. The design I picked was from a planner cover I saw on Instagram and I personalized it with one of my favorite quotes.

DIY Rolling Storage Using Wooden Crates

Thanks to Rust-Oleum for providing the paint as part of the Creator's Studio Blogger Challenge! This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.


I have had two wooden crates c/o Crates and Palllet sitting around for months, while I was trying to decide how to use them. I have been pinning a ton of storage ideas for inspiration, but could not settle on one idea. When I was selected by Rust-Oleum to participate in their Creator's Studio Blogger Challenge, I decided I was going to finally make a storage project using the crates.

Need more storage space, but do not have room? This DIY Rolling Storage using wooden crates is the perfect solution!


The only requirement for the challenge is that I had to use at least one of the products in the box. The box contained several goodies: Glitter spray paint, chalboard spray paint, mirror paint, chalk gray spray paint, green spray paint, and a couple of cans of stain. I am pre-disposed to go with the spray paint, because that is truly my jam, but I decided to try the stain. Don't worry, I am sure you will see the spray paints used for future projects...I already have a couple in mind!

The poncho is the newest answer to outerwear and I am embracing the trend.  It is the perfect alternative to a jacket or bulky coat and can be worn with pants or dresses.  I have to admit this is my first long sleeved poncho and I was not sure how I would style it when I selected it as one of my Fall pieces from Aventura Clothing. I was pleasantly surprised at how I love the fit and how versatile it is.

I am joining a group of bloggers for a Crafty De-stash Challenge, where we were challenged to create a project using only supplies we had on hand.

ThredUp Finds - Free People Dress

Have you heard of ThredUp? It is a online thrift store where you can find all your favorite brands for the best prices. Most of the items are either gently used or still have the tags attached. I have purchased several items from ThredUp and have been very happy with the experience. It also allows me to try brands that I would not normally buy first hand, due to the price, like this dress from Free People that was under $20!





In this mini haul, I bought 3 pieces in all (including this dress) and saved over $80! Since the dress is a shorter length, I can wear it with leggings and flat oxford shoes.
