Christmas Tote Bag

You know I love a good tote bag. I could make a new one for each season! Which is pretty much what intend to do :) I decided to change up my usual design, but still keep it easy and fun. (Because that is how DIY should be!) And yes, I know that we haven't even hit Thanksgiving, but the early bird catches the worm. Make this cute Christmas tote bag now and you can carry it all December. It's perfect for "toting" gifts and goodies to parties. And if you start now, you can make an extra one to give as a present.


"Not So Spooky Spiders" Halloween Cookies

It's getting closer to Halloween, which means it's time to do all those fun Fall things. We visited the pumpkins at the Dallas Arboretum, ran through the corn maze at Hall's Pumpkin Farm, picked out costumes, and today we baked!


How to Turn Your Instagram Followers into Blog Readers

My favorite social media by far is Instagram. I love that it is just little squares. I love that people comment and communicate more on Instagram because it feels like a little community. I love that one photo can sum up an entire moment.

But there is one thing that I do not like about Instagram, and that is you cannot add 'click-able' links in the captions! I can't even count the number of times I have seen a product or a blog post that I want to know more about, but I can't find a direct link to it via Instagram. And usually by the time I would think about 'googling it'-- I would get distracted and forget. If you are a blogger, a website owner, if you run an Etsy shop, or have your business on Instagram, you have probably thought the same thing. Luckily, there is finally a solution to the problem.

7 Tips for Modern Halloween Decor

Last week one pumpkin "popped up" in my house, so it only seemed fitting to break out the rest of the Halloween decorations. Halloween decor can be a bit tricky. I never want my house to look like it belongs to Morticia Adams but I also don't want it to feel like an elementary school classroom in October. So in between gothic and cutesy-- I think I found my "Halloween style". Let's call it "Modern Halloween Decor".

So how do you 'get the "Modern Halloween" look? Here are my tips!


Fall Home Decor: Pumpkin Floral Arrangements

Oh friends, if you are anywhere in the South, you know that Summer is not ready to give up. According to the calendar, Fall is knocking on the door. But Summer is being stubborn. Summer doesn't want to end. Summer just refuses to answer that door. So, here in Texas, we have to help Fall along. I admit, I am currently wearing a tank top with jean shorts and planning on watching my girls swim in our pool after school. But the calendar says September!!!- so I am ignoring what is happening outside and creating my own Fall inside. I am ushering in Fall the best way I know how... with pumpkins.


TX Pinners Conference 2016

Last week was so busy, but so fun. I attended and taught classes at the Texas Pinners Conference in Arlington. I was approached by my blog friend, Kristen Duke, a long time ago about presenting at the TX Pinners Conference. When I agreed to do it, I really had no idea how big it would really be! I was asked to present two classes, the first one-- a craft from my blog. And the second one-- a craft project for IKEA. (Yes-- that IKEA!!!) I was hesitant, nervous, apprehensive and all the feelings that come when you take your passion and put it on a stage for 100+ to see. But you know what? It all turned out great!


"Outer Space Art" inspired by Creative Galaxy

Today I am sharing a craft that is 'out of this world' :) Ya'll know that one of favorite things to do with my kids is get crafty. Whether we are in the kitchen making a fun snack or breaking out the paints in the craft room-- I really enjoy being creative with my kids. It seems to bring out the best in all of us. And to be honest, sometimes playing with kids (whether its dolls, legos, "pretend" etc) is kind of hard! Which is why being creative together is so great. Artistic and creative projects allow you to spend quality time with your children and keep both of your minds stimulated :)
