Book Page Bunny Silhouette Art and Banner

Book page bunny silhouette and cute Easter banner I'm back today to show you a super easy and cute way to decorate your mantle.  Or in my case, my faux mantle. It's just an Ikea shelf that we hung in our little dining area. I love to decorate it now.  For the bunny silhouette art You will need a piece of long wood or any size really A bunny silhouette  (you can find mine here and download it) clear tape old book pages black card stock or black vinyl Cricut Explore  First I took a piece of mdf that I had lying around.  I like the size. It's perfect for that space.  Then I found a bunny that was standing. I just searched on pinterest. You can either download it and print it out and just cut it by hand or I downloaded it and put it into my Cricut Design Space and cut it in vinyl.  Since I wanted my bunny to be 16inches tall x 8 inches wide I  had to cut it in 2 sections.  You can do that when you print it too.  Ok, back to

Pretty Easter Door Hanger

As promised I am back today to show you another fun and easy Easter craft.  Y'all there's STILL time to crank one of these out! Easter Door Hanger  Here's what you'll need:  One egg shaped/oval shaped wooden plaque assorted craft paints and sharpies vinyl  burlap ribbon  hot glue (don't mind the little "eggs" next to it. They are part of another post .) First paint your egg in your favorite color.  Next, I started out by designing the chevron pattern I wanted on my Cricut Explore. You can easily draw it in by hand but I was testing some things out on my machine so I decided to do it that way.  So hand draw it or stencil on the chevron pattern.  Wait until dry and outline it with a contrasting color sharpie.  I then cut out my "M" initial with my Cricut and  applied it to the plaque.  I really like the colors. They go with the rest of the Easter them I have going :) I got my burlap rib

Hi everyone. I'm busy crafting for my family's Easter celebration next weekend. Over the next few days I'll be posting some of my projects here for you . Spring Shadow Box These are simple, inexpensive projects that you can try at home.  First you'll need to gather the following materials: six small wooden oval shapes one 9 x 9 shadow box assorted paints and markers hot glue  vinyl  Cricut Explore cutting machine The Cricut Explore machine is optional. You can buy any vinyl saying at your local crafts store or online on Etsy. However, I highly recommend this awesome machine.

Healthy Meal Planning for Working Moms

I recently returned to work after a long time handling some health issues.  If you're like me and have a difficult time eating healthy lunches at work, then this post is for you. Healthy Choice makes some delicious meals called Cafe Steamers. I love that you can heat up delicious meals at work and drizzle a scrumptious sauce on top. These meals are so easy to pack and go. The best part is that they're a healthy alternative to fast food.  I hate going out and picking up fatty burgers or other fast foods that are filled with calories and who knows what else.  I also discovered that if I want to eat outside on these pretty spring days, I can heat up my Healthy Choice Cafe Steamer then pour it into a thermal tumbler! Healthy eating on the go!  You can totally do this with kids when you pack their lunches.  Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers are so yummy! I love all their pasta dishes. I buy a variety of flavors to pack as lunches not only for myself
