How to Make A Digger Cake

Pin It
A few weeks ago we celebrated our baby turning 3.
He absolutely loves construction trucks and always points them out to me while we're out and about.
I wanted to make him a 'digger' cake and searched for ideas.
There were a lot of good ideas where people had little trucks on the cake, but I wanted to make the actual 3D version of a truck.
This is what I came up with...
There is a time-lapse video at the end of this post showing the actual process if you want to check it out, but I'm also going to go through step-by-step here with pictures.

Wooden Medal Holder

Pin It
After finishing the built-in shelves in my son’s room a few months ago, we’ve been slowly decorating his room. He had his medals kind of piled up on a shelf, so I decided he needed a better way to display them!

Built In Entryway Coat Rack

Pin It
I am happy to say I was able to complete a few built-in projects over the last few months!
I actually have a few more on my list to complete, but with the hustle and bustle of the holidays I took a little break to focus my time elsewhere.
This entryway coat rack was my most popular post on Instagram for 2018, so I wanted to write a quick post to share all of the details on how it all came together.
Clean design plus functionality.
I'm so in love with how this turned out!
Let's take a look at the 'before', shall we?

Every time I make this dessert I have people asking for the recipe, the flavors are amazing and it's always a hit!
If you've never had Carmelitas before then I'll break them down a little bit for you, there's a delicious cookie layer on the bottom, layers of chocolate chips and melted caramel are next, and then it's topped with another layer of the cookie mixture. Do yourself a favor and make them now, you'll be so glad you did :)
As always I got pictures showing the process, and the full recipe (with ingredients and directions listed at the bottom).

Bedroom Built-ins {Part 1}

Pin It
I am beyond thrilled to be writing this post because it means I am finished with this project!!
Last Fall we finished our basement and moved our older boys down there.
The bedrooms down there are big!
We thought that adding built-ins would help take up a little space while also being functional.
This was the first big project I've tackled by myself, and I'm so happy with the way it turned out.
I will be breaking up the details and steps into 2 separate blog posts.
This first post will mainly cover the details for the tall bookcase/shelves, the second post will be for the window seat with cupboards, and the floating desk.
I did go back and forth between the different sections because I needed things to dry, or ran out of some supplies but still wanted to get other things done, so it might be a little all over the place, but stay with me here!

Fabric Pumpkin Burlap Banner

Pin It
I can't believe tomorrow is October!
I absolutely love this time of the year.
September is still warm enough that I don't feel the season change too much, but as soon as October comes we decorate for Halloween, start planning costumes, and the overall feel just completely changes.
The other day I decided to make this pumpkin banner to add to our decorations this year.
I love that it will work for Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I was able to make this whole thing in a little less than an hour.
I've got lots of pictures and instructions for you, but please let me know if you have any questions.
*Also, if you aren't feeling too crafty I have these for sale over at my Etsy shop! Click here to find the listing.

Kitchen Counter Declutter

Pin It
For the longest time I have been trying to come up with a better solution for storing our fresh produce.
Some fruits and veggies go in our fridge, but for the rest they've always just been put in a kind of pile on our counter.
A few people suggested a fruit bowl or a fruit stand, but I still didn't like the idea of it on the counter. I wanted to free up as much counter space as possible so I turned to the internet and started searching for ideas.
I had seen a couple of hanging baskets but it wasn't quite what I wanted, until I found this shelving kit for only $27 on Amazon! 
(I’ve linked this shelving kit and all of my recommended household finds HERE)
I have a pretty small pantry door, only 18" across, so this 12" wide set was perfect! 
It was on back order for a week, but it finally arrived yesterday and I put it up right away.
