Jenny Louise Marie Hi there!  I am so excited to finally be sharing this with you.  Excited because I finally got my printer to cooperate with my Silhouette.  Excited because now I am able to design my own personalized sticker designs to include in my planner or wherever.  Really the possibilities are endless.  So, today I am going to share with you exactly how to make your own stickers as well.  Your planner will thank me. 🙂 Okay, so I knew that my Silhouette was capable of doing a print and cut design.  This means you can create a design in the software, print itRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Good morning & happy Monday!  I should have already had this post ready to go, at least according to my posting schedule.  However, for some reason I cannot seem to get myself on top of things.  Weird, right?  I’ve been at this blogging thing for 6 months and doing it while working full-time.  Now, it’s summer break and I have more time on my hands.  Oddly enough, I cannot get it together.  I have a lot of irons in the fire and am not completing any of it.   So, though I had planned on working this out a little more, IRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Happy Memorial Day friends!  I hope you’re enjoying the holiday today. I want to take a minute to remind everyone to thank a veteran today.  Although not all of our brave soldiers were lost in service, we owe them all a HUGE thank you for the service they provide our country.  Many men in my family have served, and I always think of them today.  My grandfather fought in World War II, my uncles have served, my brother served and spent a year in Iraq, and now my son in considering serving.  Let’s keep them all in our thoughts and prayers today. Now,Read More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I think I have a tutorial that is sure to help you.  I’m sure you’ve seen the many banners that are around these days.  They are very popular.  The problem is, when I pick one up, I have a hard time paying the money for something I know is a temporary decoration and usually made of paper.  Especially when I could make one quickly and easily.  Today, I am going to share with you the process I use to make my own festive, holiday banners. First of all, I should tell you that I use myRead More →

adventure awaits sign as part of a Hobby Lobby score I made

Jenny Louise Marie So, I was in Hobby Lobby.  This happens from time to time. 🙂  I was cruising the aisles.  I’m not even sure why I went in originally.  But you know, you have to just walk the store in case anything strikes your fancy, right?  I wasn’t having any luck on this particular day.  Then, I happened upon a whole clearance aisle.  I had to check it  out.  I found these word art signs. What’s the official name for these anyway?  I did not like them at all.  I was about to pass them by, but then I had a second thought.  WhatRead More →

DIY boxwood wreath compared to store bought

Jenny Louise Marie So, have you ever wondered if it’s better to buy “the real deal” vs. DIYing one for yourself? Sometimes I wonder if DIY is always the way to go.   Let’s discuss this.   Have I mentioned that I love to decorate? I love for my home to look the way…well, the way I want it to look.  Like many of you, I scour Pinterest for ideas and pictures of rooms I love.  (Do you follow my boards yet?)  It seems there are always projects to take on, things I want to incorporate into my decor, but maybe I don’t always have theRead More →
