Layout

Hello everyone! Good Saturday morning! I love how I have been awake for two hours and my daughter and husband are still sleeping! It's nice to sit down and drink my coffee in the quiet and to get this blog post done without any interruptions.... So I worked on this layout about a week ago and I really love how it turned out. I used some teresa Collins modeling paste with a poka dot stencil and added some texture to the plain blue card stock. Which is always fun playing with! Then for the embellishments I used the Heidi swapp project life gold embellishments.for the title Happy I cut it out on my cricut and used my gold wink of Stella brush and I just love these little things! So much shinny glitter! And That is it for this layout. It was super fun and pretty easy :) I hope you all have an amazing weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Christmas card

I made this Christmas card a few weeks ago. I'm not really a card maker but I think this one turned out pretty good. The little snowmen from this stamp are so adorable! I paper pieced some of the elements and for the snow I used thick embossing powder. I hope you all have a great day and hope you enjoyed this!

Pink layout

I had so much fun making this layout! Remembering the day that I took these pictures and my daughter was being super silly... This was a simple layout because there were so many pictures to try and fit on here. But in the end I think it turned out pretty cute :) I used products from the Heidi swapp project life kit and I love the gold! I hope this inspires you to create something today!

Christmas sign

Good morning everyone! It is a early morning for me! This is the time that I enjoy for myself, hubby is off to work and my little one is still asleep. So I am sitting in the quiet drinking my coffee! So nice!  But enough about that lets get to the project I made a few weeks ago. The Count down Christmas sign. I went to lowes and they already had some pre cut wood, and I got the dowels at lowes as well the hanger tags I pick up at Michaels they were all naked. I just used acrylic paint to paint everything and for the numbers and words I used my cricut machine and vinyl. I messed up a few times and all the words wouldn't fit but I fixed it and I think it looks pretty awesome! It took me a while because I had to let paint dry and I hate letting the paint dry for anything! I'm so impatient but I took my time and I love it! Hope this project inspires you to do something crafty today!

Picture frame projects

Hello everyone! It's a cold morning here in Pennsylvania! I just wanted to share some projects I have been working on that are finished now. I bought some picture frames on the clearance rack at michaels craft store. I painted them the color that I wanted and in one I put some burlap in the frame and a little clip with a flower so I can change the pictures out as often as I want. Then the other one I painted the same color I twisted some wire together and then hung pictures with clothes pins 😊 I think they both turned out awesome and I love them! Thank you so much for checking my blog out. Hope this inspires you to make something different out of your old picture frames!

Mimi and Papa layout

I really enjoy using simple stories products! I had so much fun doing this one of my in laws and my daughter. The colors were fun and I also used my cricut to cut out the title. I hope you all are inspired by this layout!

Scrapbook layout

Creating something like scrapbook layouts makes me so happy! Looking back on good times and moments is really fun! I know when my daughter is an adult she will have all of these memories right at her fingertips and be able to share them with her family one day. It makes me so happy to imagine her sharing them with her husband and children one day.... This is my mother and my daughter. Hope you all enjoy...


This blog

I really enjoy making things! I scrapbook, crochet and just recently started making cards. I also love cooking and trying new recipes. So this blog is going to be about these things that I love doing! I will also put things about being a stay at home wife and mother on here as well. I hope you all enjoy what I have to share and hope you interact with me! I love responding to comments and getting to know others that have the same passions as me! So stay tuned!

Ok so let's talk breakfast.... I am pretty easy I like eggs, and oatmeal. I am not one of those people who can eat a little health bar and be good until lunch! I like to eat something that is going to hold me over something that is healthy and good for my body. This is one of my go to breakfast, oatmeal made with almond milk, natural peanut butter and a banana sliced in it. This is so yummy and fills me up.

March dinner menu


My husband and I joined Costco so I decided to try to meal plan breakfast and dinners. First I did breakfast. I do egg sandwiches, oatmeal, pancakes with fruit. Then for dinner I planned all kinds of yummy dinners such as chicken noodle soup, Parmesan herb stuffed chicken, turkey burgers with sweet potato fries, and roasted chicken with salad. I use Pinterest a lot! We are going to go shopping this weekend and I will keep you updated on how it goes. Thanks for reading.
