Training is well underway and almost done for my runDisney Princess race! I cannot believe the race is only a week away. I was going to go hardcore with my running costume this race, but let’s be real it’s just not fun to run in something uncomfortable. While I LOVED my Provincial Belle running costume I made for a previous runDisney race I decided (more…)
DIY Minnie Pocket Monogrammed Shirt
Disney monograms are kinda my jam. I’m a big Disney fan. That’s probably an understatement, I basically live and breath Minnie Mouse and go to my favorite mouse house, Walt Disney World, as often as I can (like once a month or more). I buy plenty of Disney merch, but I love to customize and create my own. This monogrammed (more…)
Provincial Belle Running Costume
Provincial Belle is a fun easy to put together running costume. Running in runDisney races has become a true passion, okay maybe an addiction, of mine. I was hooked after my first 5k and quickly upgraded to a 10k just the following fall! For my second race, I had to wear one of the fun costumes I saw on the race course at the 5k. I came up with the idea of doing Provincial Belle because I was running at the runDisney Wine & Dine 10k and that weekend has the Lumiere challenge, which made me think of Belle. (more…)
Peter Pan Nursery
From just about the moment we found out we were pregnant we wanted to do something special with our baby’s nursery. With my love of Disney, something using a Disney classic was likely in the cards, but we did want it to be something a little different. During my pregnancy, we went to see Finding Neverland and I came up with the idea that a Peter Pan Neverland nursery would be the cutest idea for a boy. We didn’t know what we were having at that point, but the minute we found I immediately knew we had to go through with that idea. We had so much fun putting together this room and I (more…)
1st Birthday Tutu and Onesie Tutorial
A babies first birthday is such an exciting milestone for new parents. An easy DIY no sew tutu with a matching onesie is a perfect first birthday outfit for any baby girl. When my adorable niece was turning one I decided to make her a little first birthday outfit to wear on her day! There isn’t anything cuter, in my opinion, that a little girl in a tutu (more…)
DIY Magic Band Decals
Whether you are planning your first trip to Walt Disney World or your 100th, you’ve likely seen or heard that Disney uses something called a Magic Band as an all in one source for your park ticket, room key, reservations, photos, fast passes and even a credit card to use on in park purchases. Basically, everything for your vacation is linked on this one little waterproof wristband.
If you book a stay at one of the Walt Disney World resorts your entire party will receive a magic band by mail at least 30 days prior to your vacation. (This is ending in 2021, but you can still purchase MagicBands to use) You can also choose to buy your own magic band and Disney sells many different ones. I now have way too many magic bands. I like to make these personalized magic band decals with my Cricut die cut machine. They add a little personality and then I can tell my bands apart.

The magic bands used for this project were the old style magic band. Around January 2017, Disney updated the magic bands and now uses a different style. UPDATE 2020: This project does work for the new Magic Bands without changing the sizes. You can modify if you want the imagine to be larger.
There are many places you can buy vinyl decals such as Etsy if you do not want to make your own vinyl decals. I love any excuse to use my Cricut, so I make them for myself, friend’s, and family. This is a pretty (more…)
Layered Glitter Monogrammed Water Bottle
I previously posted how to make a princess monogrammed water bottle. My sister saw my post and wanted her very own water bottle. I decided to change the design and make her a Little Mermaid water bottle with layered glitter vinyl and use a glass water bottle. Glass can easily be used to apply vinyl. They are a wonderful alternative for those wanting to avoid plastic. In this post, I’ll show you how to make your very own layered glitter (more…)
Winter Pillow Covers
An easy way to update your winter decor without spending a fortune is with pillow covers. You can cover existing pillows for less than $20.00 and have a new look for the winter season. Create your own covers or purchase new ones in a style you like. I decided to save myself some time and not sew new covers. On a trip to IKEA, I found some plain red covers that would perfectly fit my couch pillows for less than $10.00 each! They are perfect for an iron-on vinyl overhaul. I made both designs at the same time with a die cut machine and design (more…)

Basics of Making a Burlap Wreath
A burlap wreath is made with very few supplies. You will need a wire wreath frame, floral wire, and burlap ribbon. That is it. Three simple supplies. You can pick those up at any craft store. I used two different burlaps, one spool of plain burlap and one spool of pattern burlap. I taught myself how to make a burlap wreath awhile back with (more…)

Why I Love The Circut Explore Air
I purchased the Cricut Explore Air to help make my DIY projects simpler and my cuts more precise. I never imagined, even after all my research, how many different projects I would end up using it for. The Cricut Design Studio offers (more…)
