The Monkey loves Goldfish crackers, particularly when he gets home from preschool and needs a little quiet time after a day of playing and learning. He asks to watch one of “My Shows, not grown-up shows!” and requests Goldfish crackers and a cup of milk. He also likes to be independent. That’s very important for him. We keep most of his straws, cups and dishes at a level that he can reach because it’s very important that he does it “all by myself.” I made with a clear storage jar and some spare vinyl this quick and easy DIY Goldfish Snacks Jar, so that the Monkey can get his own yummy Goldfish Crackers.
It’s the middle of basketball season around here. It’s January, and for middle school basketball, we have about 8 more weeks of games. (Then AAU season starts, but that is another kettle of fish entirely.) The Big One plays a lot of basketball between lessons, games, and practice, we are often running from gym to gym. I’ve picked up a fair amount of spirit wear as a sports mom, including several basketball mom shirts, but the reality is that I can always use a few more. I decided to use my Cricut Explore Air to create my very own Basketball Mom shirt. I’m going to share the shirt with you today, along with a quick tutorial to show you how to turn font and images into a single Welded image. By doing this, your designs become even easier to position on fabric, and you don’t have unexpected cut lines.
Although this post is sponsored by Cricut, all opinions are my own.
When I first met the wonderful Cricut staff in Utah during Snap Conference along with my friend, Crystal, at Hello Creative Family, I learned all about the materials that one can cut with the Cricut Explore Air. It’s an impressive list; however, I was particularly excited about its ability to cut wool felt. You see, I have this love for felt, and enjoy using it for many different projects. I was thrilled with the idea that my Cricut Explore would be able to cut out intricate designs for me to use. This week I used it to create this Happy Holly Days Felt Ornament without any need to use my own scissors.
Okay, we love Disney around here. And after 4 straight years of going to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, we are heading to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party next week! I’m so excited! In honor of our trip down to DisneyWorld, and thanks to some Black Friday shopping, I created 3 easy DIY Frozen Ornaments. I started with one variation after going to Michael’s, and then as I was browsing, I ended up gathering enough supplies to make three variations along with a few extras for my sweet Mother-in-Law’s little grandnieces who are also Frozen obsessed. The Monkey, even though it is a “Princess Movie,” loves to sing Let it Go, and is quite fond of Olaf. If you have a Frozen or Disney lover like my little Monkey, you might like to make any one of these three very easy DIY Frozen ornaments!
