    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 myΒ Silhouette machine and some gold vinyl. Β 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. πŸ˜‰ I live with 5 boys in my family and I’m not sure they’d appreciate that very much. I’m…

  • Strawberry Orange Julius

    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. πŸ˜‰  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. Β 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. Β 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.

  • Lucky Rice Krispie Treats 2

    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! Β 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 –Β 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…
