What I am Wearing - Styling Off the Shoulder

If you are keeping up with the latest fashion trends, you will know that off-the-shoulder tops are all over the place for Spring. Wearing an off-the-shoulder top does not have to be intimidating if you keep the rest of your outfit modest.

Bible Journaling - How to Use Gelatos

I have been Bible Journaling for a little over a year and have recently started getting creative with different materials. I got to play with Gelatos at the workshop I hosted recently and had to buy some for myself. Gelatos allow you to create vibrant pages without the messiness of 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.

DIY Mesh Spring Wreath

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience

Hi everyone! Welcome back to the second month of 12 Months of Wreaths! I am excited to be joining my friend Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom as a co-host this month! I am sharing my first attempt at a wreath that was not a Pinterest fail! I got all of my supplies at the Dollar Tree and spent a total of $8 on this pretty deco mesh wreath. 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. After watching several Youtube videos, like this one, I decided to try it myself.

I have a confession...I struggle with hanging pictures on my walls. I pin all these beautiful gallery walls and DIY art on Pinterest, but I never do anything about it. That changes this month!

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.
