This month is all about DIY Gifts. I know, I know…;..It’;s earlyunique gifts for grandpa, but is it really?

Since I have a whole box of white tiles that a friend gave me, I thought coasters would be perfect! I knew that Cricut would have some stylish designs to choose from in their Design Space.

I chose my designs and clicked “;Go”;…;…;it’;s as simple as that. It tells you to load the machine, tells you to push the cut button. The Cricut truly is SO simple to use.

After I cut it, I placed a transfer paper over the vinyl design. This allows your design to pull up easily so it can be placed on whatever item you’;re using.

I placed it on my white tile, then rubbed with the spatula looking tool before pulling the transfer paper up.

I placed small squares of cork on the back side to prevent scratching.

Deer heads are so on trend. This particular design was 3 different cuts.??I cut my deer head, then I cut the wreath, then it had me cut the black for the wreath.

Another trendy design. So simple and could be used year round.

What’;s easier than cutting a bunch of dots? ?Gold dots…;…;.another favorite!

And one more deer. I couldn’;t help myself.

Grab a pretty bow and wrap it up!

Inexpensive and cute!

Cricut wants me to tell you about their new Print and Cut feature! If you can print it, you can cut it with the Cricut Explore machine.?This video shows you how.

When your alarm goes off in the morning, are you ever tempted to hit snooze? Do you often allow yourself an extra seven minutes, or fifteen, or forty...? Well it turns out that those extra moments of shuteye might actually be hurting more than they help.

I took Elli and Connor school clothes shopping last week, to get a few new things for their new school year.? While walking through the little girl department, Elli saw these little knit Tube Skirts and said she wanted one in every color.? I picked one up and almost threw it in the cart, but……. I. Just. Couldn’t.? Yeah, they weren’t that expensive but I knew I had some cute knit fabric at home, check.? And I knew I had wide elastic at home, check.? I just couldn’t bring myself to purchase something as simple as that skirt, when I knew I had the stuff for it and could make it in like 2 seconds at home.
