  • DIY Floral Faux Wallpaper

    It’s no secret that I’m head over heels in love with my Silhouette Cameo. I tell people I use it on a daily basis and I don’t think they believe me but it’s true. I even have a special setup in my craft room where I ran the power cord through my craft island so it’s always ready to go! It is my “go-to” crafting tool. That being said, this was key element in designing my floral faux wallpaper for my bathroom that I showed you yesterday. If you missed that post, check out my glamorous bathroom reveal here. It goes without saying that the faux wallpaper is the focal point and the BEST part of this tiny little bathroom. I decided to create a floral focal wall using my Silhouette machine and some gold vinyl.  Since I sell vinyl decals on Etsy, I had enough gold vinyl in my stash to cover every wall in my house but decided against it. 😉 I live with 5 boys in my family and I’m not sure they’d appreciate that very much. I’m…

  • Skinny Strawberry Orange Julius

    If you follow me on Instagram, you may have heard that I’m expecting baby #4 and it’s a boy! My 4th boy! My husband claims he doesn’t know how to make girls. It’s a ridiculous statement but apparently true. 😉  With this pregnancy, if a craving hits, it hits hard.  The other night, the orange julius hit hard. Thank you Dairy Queen for taking care of that ASAP. While it may have satisfied the craving, it wasn’t that great. It was watery, not very frothy and thick as I wanted.  I remember my mom making these delicious orange julius’ when I was a kid so I knew I could do it at home.  My husband and I came up with a delicious recipe and a few days later, I made it again with fresh strawberries and it was SO good; I knew I had to share it with you guys! Ingredients: 1/2 can frozen orange juice concentrate (about 6oz) 1 cup of cut up strawberries (frozen or fresh) 1 cup milk (almond milk works great too! My husband is a…

  • Coral and Mint Living Room Reveal

    If you’ve been a follower of our blog for a while, you may have seen this room made over before. This is this room’s 4th, yep, 4th makeover. I have learned so much about what works for this space (and our family!) and what doesn’t. I FINALLY love this room.  I love it because it totally reflects my style and nearly every element of the room was a DIY done by yours truly. I’m talking, the wall paint, refinished floors, curtains, ALL of the furniture, including the sofas and many of the accessories were all made by moi! From 2011, when we moved in and had zero decor (and no decorating budget!) This room has come a long, long way! Since moving in, I have painted the room twice. Once a pretty grey (Glidden – Pebble Grey) with a striped accent wall and hallway. Now, we have a crisp white (Behr – Swiss Coffee) room with a Mandilicious, Vintage Revivals inspired gold sharpie accent wall.  It’s funny but I can totally see my style shift and I finally figured out…

  • 10 Creative Craft Rooms and Home Offices

    As you may already know, I’ve been working on my craft room…. for months it seems. It is a big space and it’s an unfinished basement so it poses many challenges even for a DIYer like myself. Hey, I’m always up for a challenge. I decided to share with you some of my favorite craft spaces from my Craft Room/Office Spaces Pinterest board. You can follow us on Pinterest here if you’d like… and you should. 😉  The first photo below is the progress on the craft studio so far.   Girly Glam Craft Studio White and gold glam office space White and bright office space   Ikea desk hack and gorgeous desk space Incredible Craft Studio space Craft Closet Makeover Eye Candy Studio Colorful and Organized Craft Room Pink and Aqua Home Office Cute and Organized Craft supplies          …

  • St. Patricks Day Rice Krispie Treats with Lucky Charms Marshmallows

    I am huge fan of Rice Krispie treats! They’re super easy to make and taste delicious! My kiddos and I wanted to try a twist on the traditional Rice Krispie Treats and make them green and use Lucky Charms Marshmallows for St. Patrick’s Day!  I also like to add vanilla extract to mine to enhance the flavor a bit. I have seen cute versions of this treat with using Lucky Charms cereal but I love the texture and taste of traditional Rice Krispie Treats so we just added the Lucky Charm’s marshmallows separately at the end. Ingredients: 1/4 cup of butter 4 cups of soft marshmallows 5 cups of Rice Krispie cereal 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract green food coloring (optional) approximately 3/4 cup of Lucky Charm’s marshmallows – My kids and I picked them out of the Lucky Charms cereal box and set them in a bowl until we were ready to use them. Heaven help the person who pours themselves a bowl of Lucky Charms sans marshmallows! (hehehe! I’ll blame it on the leprechaun!) Instructions: Melt butter over low…

  • Kiss me I’m Irish – St. Patrick’s Day Gift Idea

    I don’t normally give out gifts for St. Patrick’s Day but I think this could be the cutest gift for a teacher or friend who needs a “pick me up” around this time of year. This time of year is rough for me sometimes because honestly, I am so over the winter at this point. We are still fiddling around with 8, 10, 20 degree temperatures and I’m over it. The winter blues can be in full swing for some at this time. Even if you’ve beat the blues, who wouldn’t LOVE a bag or a jar of kisses!? This would be also be so cute to stick in hubby’s car as a surprise on St. Patrick’s Day too!  I’m not Irish so I made two versions of this cute little printable to attach to your little gift. All you need to do is fill a bag or a small jar full of almond kisses (because they’re gold!) and add the cute tag. So cute and easy!   Right click and save or download here.   Download Kiss me I’m Irish…

  • DIY Warm Cocoa Bath Soak

    Welcome to Day 3 of our Gift Ideas in a Jar series!  Hope you’re enjoying the ideas we’ve had this week! I am a bath lover. I prefer a bath over a shower any day.  One thing I love to do for “me time” is draw a nice (piping hot!) bath after I’ve put the kids to bed and just sit and do nothing. I love it. What makes it even better is when I have some yummy bath salts, fizzies, milk bath or yummy smelling bubble bath to add to the water. Today, I made the best one yet. This DIY Warm Cocoa Bath soak is a mix of DIY Cocoa bath salts and DIY Milk bath that will leave you (and your skin!) feeling incredible. I’ve got two simple recipes for the bath soak and I layered them in this jar. First we have the Cocoa Bath Salts. I also added the benefits of each ingredient below. I love how therapeutic this bath soak is. Cocoa Bath Salts 1 cup of Epsom Salt – great for injuries, constipation…

  • Lemon Lime Sugar Scrub Recipe

      Welcome to day 2 of our Gift Ideas in a Jar series! Be sure to check out day 1 – Pampering Spa Gift in a jar (by Savannah) if you missed it yesterday. Jar gifts have been around for a while and we love them! They’re so simple and cute and you can get super creative with what to put inside. I love them for a quick birthday, baby shower, baptism, anniversary, Mother’s Day gift etc! Nothing like having a cute jar gift handy when you forget it’s your friend’s birthday! Today I’m going to share one of my favorite gift ideas, homemade sugar scrubs in a jar.  I love sugar scrubs.  They exfoliate your skin so nicely and you can make them smell absolutely awesome! I’m a huge citrus fan so I decided to make a lemon-lime concoction. My goodness it smells so good and is super easy to make. Recipe: (Makes 2-3 pint size mason jars) 4 cups of sugar 1/2 cup of lemon or lemon-lime scented liquid soap (I used a lemon citrus hand soap that…
