DIY Signs are so popular right now! I have to admit, now that I have created my DIY Farmhouse Style Welcome Sign, I want to make more! They bring such a homey look to your porch, or the interior of your home. I feel like they give it a cozy look, and with fall creeping up on us, who doesn’t want to feel cozy? Today, I have put together a collection of 10 DIY Signs that you can create for yourself, or as a gift!
I did it. I made a sign. Why is this big? Well, because it is just that-big. Aside from my Beach, Sun, Sand sign I made a few years ago for a friend, this is the largest project I have created with my Silhouette Cameo. And, paint and vinyl, they scare me. I see so many people posting that the paint was bleeding, or the vinyl wouldn’t stick, and on and on. So, I was a bit intimidated. But I wanted one of these farmhouse style “Welcome” signs so badly. Only one other house in our neighborhood has one, and I look at her porch with sign envy. Come to find out, it wasn’t hard, it wasn’t intimidating, and now I want to make more signs! I thought I would share it with you!
One of our favorite ways to get settled into our Disney Cruise Line stateroom is to decorate the door! There are so many cute, easy ways to personalize your stateroom door! I had found some Mickey bodies on Etsy, which I am giving away as part of this Disney Land and Sea Giveaway that is going on right now, and then used some cardstock and simple Mickey head shapes to cut out decorations for our Disney Dream sailing last year. This time, for our Star Wars Day at Sea sailing on the Disney Fantasy, I decided to go one step further and decorate our door with some DIY Lightsaber Magnets!
A Disney trip wouldn’t be a Disney trip without my daughter seeing her favorite characters. She’s seven, she’s been to Disney 7 times and on two Disney Cruise Line voyages….and still her favorite thing remains to see the characters. She has NEVER shied away from them, except maybe Goofy at Chef Mickey’s when she was two. I mean, he does have a long nose! But in all our Disney character interactions, we’ve encountered nothing but smiles, hugs, and lots of magic.
I can’t stop making shirts for my daughter….I think I have a problem! Every holiday or school event that comes around, I am making a shirt for the girl! Is it bad that I was kind of bummed we were on vacation when her class celebrated the 100th day of school, and I couldn’t make a shirt?! Yea, I think I have a problem. I’m addicted to heat transfer vinyl…particularly the glitter variety. There, my secret is out! This year, she wanted a shirt with a very special message….”You are Loved”. I thought it was super sweet that she wanted kids to see her shirt, and get the message that they are loved! I really can’t ask for a sweeter little girl! So, today I am sharing with you one of my favorite heat transfer vinyl tips….how to layer glitter HTV!
You are loved…..one of my daughter’s favorite songs on the radio, and it plays in the back of my mind quite often. Who doesn’t want a reminder year round that they are loved?! So, I created this easy, very simple but cute sign for my daughter to give her teacher for a Valentine’s Day gift. I hope she will hang it in her classroom to remind the children year round that they are so loved. Do you want to create your own Valentine’s Day Sign? Check out how I made mine, and yours will come together in no time!
Valentine’s Day is coming so quickly! I can’t believe the cuteness I am seeing on Pinterest as we move from Christmas crafting straight to Valentine’s Day! The twins are older now, so middle school isn’t exactly the place you take a valentine box. But, our princess is only in 1st Grade, and this is the first year she gets to create her OWN Valentine’s Day box for her class party. In Preschool and Kindergarten, the teacher incorporated it into a classroom project, but First Grade is when she gets to make her own box! Yay! Today, I am going to share this super cute Panda Valentine Box I found while perusing Pinterest. It seriously can’t be easier!
Back to School…..has it hit your house yet? We started back to school a few weeks ago, and it has been in full swing ever since. Looking back at the twins starting school, I didn’t do cutesy things like this DIY Back to School sign I made for our daughter. I wish I had! So now that our daughter is in First Grade, I am taking every chance to make cute memories of her first day of school. This DIY Back to School sign was SO easy, and it came together very quickly. Check it out! Don’t forget to enter the Amazon Gift Card Giveaway below, so you can indulge in some extra craft supplies!

My daughter has a “full time” play with friends agenda. It seems like every afternoon and evening, we are out with friends in our neighborhood. The girls are playing, and the adults are socializing. Fun, right? Of course! However, my daughter also has very sensitive skin, and it’s under a lot of summer stress! Sun, sunscreen, dust, dirt, water….you name it, and her skin is exposed to it because she is outside so much. One thing she LOVES to do is ride her scooter with her friends. At any given time, there are at least 4 of the same color and type of scooter laying in a pile in someone’s driveway while the girls are playing in the yard. So today, I am going to share my simple DIY Scooter Decals with you!

I am so ready for summer entertaining! We are putting the finishing touches on our new patio this week, and I cannot wait to start cooking out, hanging out on the patio with our neighbors, and just enjoying being outside! Plus, that means bringing some summer color to our new patio, too! Yay! When I saw these cute pineapple placemats at the store, I knew with a little vinyl and some punch of color, they would fit perfectly with my new Rubbermaid Pitcher and party platter that I had picked up at Kroger. Today, I am going to show you how to spruce up some outdoor placemats and a drink pitcher. This is a super easy project for beginners with your Silhouette Cameo, so let’s get started!
