Master Bedroom Reveal

This post may contain affiliate links. To learn more about this, please refer to our policies page.

Hello makers! We moved into our town home a few months before Christmas and I got busy organizing, purging, and decorating all the things. I’ve decided to be really intentional with our space and what we fill it with. I also wanted to decorate my room right away because, let’s face it, our master bedroom is always last on the list. I’m happy to say that it’s complete and I really love it, so I thought I’d share our master bedroom reveal here to document it.

As I’ve mentioned several times over the course of this month, my focus word for the year is ‘intentional.’ Though I am not much for resolutions, I’m certainly a goal setter and a dream go-getter. I love self improvement and awareness. I love growth and to learn. So choosing a word in January to kind of set up my year, really helps me focus. My birthday is also in January, so not only am I preparing for the new year, but I’m preparing for MY new year. Another year older and (hopefully) a bit wiser. 

I wanted to be really intentional with this space. This room is where my husband and I come to wind down and relax after a long day or a long week (Netflix and chill, am I right?). It’s where our family reads together and snuggles together. It’s where we fold laundry, talk about our day, and say family prayer. So I wanted to room to be bright and relaxing, welcoming and calming. 

My budget was small, so I worked with what I had, prioritized purchases, and DIYed some things to make this room exactly how I envisioned it. It has a slight modern, farmhouse appeal, which I love. I held off from any wall treatments since we are in a rental, but that didn’t stop me from mounting our TV, handing wall decor, and making a set of photo ledges to display our pictures. 

My number one priority for this room was not only for it to look relaxing but to actually feel relaxing. Our bed is so comfy, which is a bid deal, y’all! It has been a long time since I’ve loved my bed…and loving your bed is necessary friends! 

In case you want to shop my master bedroom, I made a couple of lists for you. The first is the DIY list… all of the things I made to put the room together. As I create tutorial posts for them, I will link them here as well. The second list has stores and a few links for where I purchased items from (may include affiliate links) to make it easier for you to find.

DIY Items:

  • Snuggle Smooch sign
  • Intention sign
  • Photo ledges
  • Grey throw pillow
  • Book bench

Purchased Items:

I hope you enjoyed seeing my master bedroom reveal as much as I enjoyed sharing it! Would I add a few more things to the room if my budget was bigger, yeah probably (I have my eye on a rug and a chair and curtains and some hanging planters…). But I really believe that you can work within your own budget to create a space that brings you joy. And creating spaces of joy within our homes is so important. So don’t wait until you can buy all the things… start on a room and shop your house. Price things out on your Amazon and Target apps. Order a little here and there. Wait for sales. Hit up the thrift shops. Paint something a  different color. Make something yourself. If I can do it, you can do it too, friends. It’s mine for the making… and it’s yours for the making too! 

DIY Recycled Doll Desk

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EarnWithBoxTops #CollectiveBias

Hello friends! As you know, my daughter and I love to craft together. She comes up with lots of great ideas, and I just love being creative with her. The other day after a grocery shopping trip to Walmart, she asked if we could use some of the leftover boxes and packages to make furniture for her doll house. I thought it was such a cute idea, so we thought we’d share the DIY Recycled Doll Desk with y’all too!

Didn’t it turn out super cute? Can’t even tell it was a Nature Valley™ Crunchy Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars box and one of the yogurt containers from the Yoplait® Original Fridge Pack turned doll desk and chair. Now that you’ve seen it, I bet you and your little girl want to make one too! 

First you want to head to your local Walmart and pick up some of your favorite General Mills foods. Some of our favorites are Honey Nut Cheerios™, Yoplait® Original Fridge Pack, Mott’s Medleys® Fruit Snacks, Nature Valley™ Oats N Honey Granola Bars, and Totino’s™ Combination Pizza Party Pack. Bonus- when you purchase 5 participating items + scan the receipt with Box Tops for Education Bonus App, you earn $5 (50 Bonus Box Tops) towards your school (offer available through 1/31/18). 

Earn even more cash to help your school get what it needs through the Box Tops for Education® Bonus App. Turn your everyday receipts into cash for your school! It’s free and as easy. Here’s how it works:

  • Buy: Find offers. Buy Products.
  • Scan: Scan your receipt.
  • Earn Watch earnings stack up.

You can earn Bonus Box Tops in the Box Tops Bonus App in combination with the on-pack Box Tops clips and any other coupon, discount, store program or promotion. So be sure to cut out those Box Tops before you get your craft on!

Next, you’ll need tape measure/ruler, scissors, hot glue gun and glue, a pencil/marker, a razor blade, scrapbook paper, ribbon/lace, beads, and a ruler to get your recycled craft on. We measured the height of the desk to be 5 inches tall and 6 inches wide, because that’s what worked best with the size of doll/doll house we are working with (think 11.5 inch doll). We used one half of the Nature Valley™ Crunchy Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars box for the desk, and set the other half aside for later. After measuring, cutting, and trimming the box, we covered it with scrapbook paper and hot glued on beads as the knobs. 

Didn’t it turn out so cute? Next we needed to make a chair, so we recycled a container from the Yoplait® Original Fridge Pack. We covered it with ribbon, paper, and lace and adhered everything with hot glue. 

Girly and pretty, perfect for my daughter’s doll house. 

Once we were finished did the he doll desk, we decide to make a recycled container to store all of our Box Tops! We used the other half of the Nature Valley™ Crunchy Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars box, covered it in paper, and added glitter stickers and a slot to slip the Box Tops in. 

Now we have a cute place to keep them all so they don’t get lost or accidentally thrown away. 

Box Tops for Education is important to our family because education is important to our family. Although I no longer teach in the classroom anymore and I homeschool, we still support our local schools. Plus, my husband is a high school culinary arts teacher, so education ranks high in our home. 

Recycling is also important to us! So get creative with your ‘trash’ before you discard it! We had so much fun working together on these projects that it turned out to fit right in line with our goal of “less things, more experiences” this year. Get creative with your kids while also collecting those Box Tops for Education. 

Head to your local Walmart for participating General Mills products and download the Box Tops App (iTunes and Google Play) so that you can earn money for your schools too! 

Do you collect Box Tops too? What kinds of crafts are your kids’ favorites?

Personalized Drop Cloth Stockings

This post contains affiliate links. Please refer to the policy page for more details. 

Hello friends! This year I went through a major purge and got rid of a TON of stuff… including Christmas decor. And because I want to go more simple this year and I have a very tiny budget to do it with, I decided to make a lot of my Christmas decor. One of the first things I knew we needed were stockings. What’s Christmas without stocking hung with care? So I whipped up these Personalized Drop Cloth Stockings for my little family.

Aren’t they so cute? If you’re looking for a fancy-shmancy stocking tutorial, you’ve come to the wrong place. But if you are looking for a simple, cozy… almost “farmhouse” … appeal, these are the perfect stockings for you. Here’s what you’ll need if you want to make your own…

  • drop cloth (found at Home Depot)
  • an old stocking (to use as a pattern)
  • fabric marker (for tracing)
  • sewing machine and thread 
  • scissors
  • heat transfer vinyl (HTV)
  • iron
  • Silhouette Cameo
  • twine/jute

First, design your names (using a favorite font) in your Silhouette Design Studio. Remember to reverse your design before cutting your HTV with your Silhouette Cameo. Refer to the HTV instructions before loading your Silhouette Cameo. After your HTV is cut and weeded, set it aside.

Trace your old stocking onto the drop cloth. Tip: Trace the stocking at the top of your drop cloth where it’s already hemmed… this will save you from needing to hem the top of your stocking! Each stocking needs 2 pieces traced, a front and a back. Once the pieces are traced and cut, use your sewing machine to sew around the edges of two of the pieces. Remember not to sew the top of the stocking together! The flip it inside out… which is actually right side out! Tip: If you don’t have a sewing machine or are not a sew-er, you can hand stitch this OR use fabric glue! 

Now you are going to cut a few pieces of jute and sew them to the top corner of the stockings in a loop. This is how you are going to hang them! 

Place the cut/weeded HTV names on the drop cloth stockings where you want them and iron them on. I like to place a piece of fabric in between the iron and the HTV. The trick to ironing on HTV it high heat and lots of pressure. Tip: Line up your stockings all ready to iron. Go down the line of stockings, pressing the iron onto the fabric/HTV names and move the next to allow time to cool, then repeat a few times.

Slowly peel back the clear sheet that is on your HTV. If the vinyl is not sticking to the drop cloth, you need to apply more heat and pressure to it. 

And that’s it, folks! In all honesty, it probably took me 1-2 hours to make all three of them. So this is great nap time or ‘after the kids are in bed asleep’ craft. And if you are better at sewing than I am or if you have heat press, it will take even less time to make them. 

So, what do you think? Have you made your own stockings or do you prefer to buy them? Target has some really cute ones this year!



Christmas Movie Quote Pennants

Hello makers! It’s Thanksgiving week and we are loving all the family time we are getting in. We decided to do a non traditional Thanksgiving on Thursday and get out of town to explore! Then we will have our traditional dinner with family on Saturday and I cannot wait! It’s practically the best meal of the year, wouldn’t you agree? Well, as you know, I’ve started my Christmas decorating already. I decided to pretty much purge everything from my decor and start fresh this year. So that means lots of Christmas crafts and DIYs, and I’m not mad about it. Today I want to share the Christmas Movie Quote Pennants I made for our new tree, but you can hang them anywhere!

We absolutely LOVE Christmas movies and it’s a goal to add new ones to our collection each year (just like our Christmas books)! These were so fun to make and they were the finishing touches to our tree. I really love them and the quotes we decided on. We even made Christmas Movie Quote Mugs too

In case you want to make some for your holiday decor, I thought I’d share the tutorial with y’all. You will need:

  • Drop cloth material (or something similar)
  • Black heat transfer vinyl (HTV)
  • Small wooden dowels
  • Jute or twine
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pen/marker
  • Hot glue and gun
  • Iron
  • Silhouette Cameo

First thing you want to do is draw your pennants on the drop cloth (you can find drop cloths at Home Depot and Lowe’s). I used a fabric marker and ruler for this. I measured them to be about 5 1/2 inches by 6 inches (to the point), then cut them out. The cool part about drop cloth material is that you really don’t have the hem the edges if you don’t want to. I like the rough cut look for this project. 

Next I hot glued the small wooden dowels (found at Dollar Tree) to the top of the pennant by folding it over the dowel. Be sure some of the dowel is sticking out on both ends. 

Then you want to cut a piece of jute (mine was about 5 inches long) to tie to each end of the wooden dowel.

Now you can design your movie quotes in the Silhouette Design Studio (or use mine, links at the end of the post). Be sure to mirror your image and load your HTV into the cameo with the shiny side down (refer to the directions on your HTV package). After you weed the design (leaving the shiny piece on), place it on the pennant. Iron it onto the drop cloth material (high heat) by pushing down firmly and moving to different places. I also recommend putting a piece of material in between the iron and the HTV for protection. Towards the end, I remove the extra material and press down firmly with the iron one more time. 

Carefully peal the plastic sheet off the HTV, making sure the vinyl is secured to the pennant. If it’s not, iron again. 

Now they are ready to hang! I just love them on our tree…

Can you guess the Christmas movies we picked by reading the quotes? If so, we can be besties. 

I absolutely love them all. They are such fun and unique ornaments.

Do you think you’ll make them for your tree? They make it so fun and magical! Everyone that comes over wants to read them and yell out the Christmas movie they are from.

If you want to use my designs, simply click on the links below to download. And please leave a comment letting me know if you make them! 

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I am so thankful you are here and I appreciate all your support with this blog of mine! 


Snow Globe Ornaments

Hello makers! We are down to 5 more days until Thanksgiving and 5 more weekends until Christmas! This year is flying by… I wish I could slow time down a bit or press the pause button. Since I can’t, I decided to make Christmas last as long as possible (aka: decorate early) and get as many Thanksgivings in as we can (we have 3 scheduled with family and friends). I just love this time of year and this season of motherhood. Christmas is still magical and I’m hoping that lasts a while longer. So we put up the tree and my daughter happily helped me decorate it. We even made these fun Snow Globe Ornaments (last year…oops!) and they are some of my favorite ornaments to hang up. I love crafting with my girl!

These ornaments were so easy and fun to make… do you want to make some too? First you’ll need to gather up your supplies. I bought all of mine at Michael’s.

  • plastic ornaments that open
  • mini trees
  • plastic baby deer
  • faux snow
  • hot glue and gun
  • super glue
  • twine/jute
  • scissors

To make these, just open your plastic ornaments and hot glue a tree or two and maybe a deer to the bottom of one half of the ornament.  I also like glue the tiny contents to each other as well… so I glued the trees together that were touching and I glued the deer to the trees as well.

Add some faux snow and close up the ornament with the other half. Put tiny dots of super glue around the opening of the ornament to secure it (this step is optional). Loop twine through the top of the ornament to easily hang it from the tree. I even added a jute bow the the top with some hot glue. 

See! Easy and they are SO cute. I love them on my flocked Christmas tree. But it’s hard to get a good photo of them without catching my reflection! 

What do you think friends? Would you hang some of these Snow Globe Ornaments on your tree?

Christmas Movie Quote Mugs

Hey there makers! Can you believe November is already half over? I packed up Halloween last weekend and busted out Christmas bins. I’ve always decorated for Christmas in November… I love having my Christmas decor up as long as possible and I love having Thanksgiving dinner by a lit tree. Call me crazy or be apart of my crazy, I’m okay with both! Of course I’ve started my holiday crafting and whipped up a couple of cute coffee cups that would be great as gifts or great to keep for yourself. And because I’m crafting while watching my fave holiday movies, it’s only natural that the Christmas Movie Quote Mugs came out of the craft room this week! 

Aren’t they fun?! Do you know what Christmas movies these quotes are from? Two of my favorites!

I picked up a couple of blank mugs from Dollar Tree and got to work on some fun designs in the Silhouette design studio. I used some of my Expressions Vinyl I had on hand, and cut the quotes out with my Silhouette Cameo. After weeding the design, I applied the vinyl quotes to the mugs with transfer tape. And that’s it! 

Of course these mugs are great for coffee, hot chocolate, and hot cider. You can even fill them up with a couple of packets of hot chocolate or some holiday candies and give these mugs as gifts to teachers, co-workers, friends, coaches, neighbors, etc. 

If you like the Christmas movie quotes I chose, you can download these free cut files to make your own mugs! Or get creative and pick quotes for YOUR favorite Christmas movies! The options are endless.

Be sure to hand wash these mugs as they are not dishwasher safe with the vinyl on them. We want them to last for lots of Christmases to come!

Have you started your holiday crafting or gift making yet? I would love to see your mugs if you decide to make some! Thanks for stopping by, friends. Have a great weekend. 



I Love Lucy Costume

This post contains affiliate links. Please refer to our policies for more information.

You guys. I can’t even tell you how stinking excited I am to share this costume with y’all. When my daughter told me 6 months ago (we like to plan ahead) that she wanted to be Lucille Ball for Halloween, I was thrilled. What a fun costume idea! They don’t make super cute I Love Lucy costumes for kids… and if they do, they are super pricey yet cheap looking. So DIY was a must, but it was actually a really simple costume to put together. Take a look of our version of Lucille Ball in this I Love Lucy costume…

My Luci (yes, that’s my daughter’s name) LOVES Lucille Ball and knows pretty much everything about her. So she is well versed in practicing her facial expressions and silly antics… and of course yelling “Ricky!!” LOL! 

For this costume, I made the apron and the pearl necklace and earring set. I used white fabric, lace, ribbon, and red felt (for the heart!) for the apron. I glued everything together with fabric glue… no sewing! I used white puff paint to mock I Love Lucy like the logo. The necklace I strung together using faux pearls and I made the earrings by gluing two faux pearls to earring studs. We ordered the polka dot dress from Amazon and found the black ballet flats at Walmart, but there are similar shoes on Amazon. The red bandanna is from JoAnn, but you can get it on Amazon as well too.  It’s always easier to order it all online and have it shipped right to your door, in my opinion!

We found a tutorial for her cute hair style online and used a lot of bobby pins and hairspray, but it turned out so cute. We couldn’t find a good wig for kids and we opted not to dye my Luci’s hair, so I think this was a great compromise. 

Plus a little red lipstick… because obviously Lucy wears red lipstick… and your I Love Lucy costume is complete! So fun, right?!

I know y’all don’t have time to make this costume for this Halloween, but PIN IT for later so you can find it easily for future Halloweens. 

Doesn’t she make the perfect Lucy?! We had SO MUCH FUN making this costume… and my daughter totally sells it! Such a ham… I just adore the heck out of her.

Thanks so much for stopping  by friends! Have a fantastic weekend and a Happy Halloween!
