Personalized Stationery with Cricut Maker

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

I love giving personalized gifts for the holiday season.  Stationery is my favorite personalized gift to give always.  Today I partnered with Cricut and grabbed my Maker to create this cute project - the perfect gift-giving gift!
I wanted to concentrate on teachers and what they might like.  While I will never give 'holiday' themed stationery, I opt to give something anyone can use year-round.  Teachers are always writing notes - notes to parents, to other teachers and of course thank you notes.

DIY "Drink More Water" Water Bottle

I've finally started to craft for me a little more.  And with that, I’ve also been trying to practice better self-care.  Part of better self-care is drinking more water, and while this can be a bit boring, I thought I would drinking water a little fun with color.  

Back to School with Cricut

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.



hi everybody!  It's been a great summer and sadly it's coming to an end.  Growing up I always loved long summer nights. And then shopping for school supplies and school clothes was also such a fun experience.

I'm sure, I'm telling my age, but my first memory of covering textbooks was maybe 2nd or 3rd grade.  We were so excited there were our books on your desks and then we would line up to select the covers we wanted to cover our books for the year.  I guess I've had a love for paper for a long time.  It took me forever to select the perfect cover for each book.  I think covering books all stopped for me a few years later.

My daughter is off to college again.  Purchasing or renting books is always the one thing we hate.  But I found a way to make these expensive, and most time overpriced books look great thanks for Cricut.

Hello everyone!
Spring is around the corner!  Mornings usually bring great weather, a perfect time to open a window and let in the fresh air.  Evenings are perfect for outside patio dinners.  Spring is all about the outdoors and picnics and spending time with friends and loved ones.  And spring celebrations, yes!  They have a special little place in my heart.
