Personalized Journals {tutorial}

This post is brought to you by We R Memory Keepers. #wermemorykeepers #lifestylestudios

Hello! Happy Friday to YOU! Today is extra special for me because my hubby is on his way home as we speak. Yay! ;) He has been gone all week, and I am so ready to have him back home. Today I’d love to share an awesome & easy gift idea ~ a personalized journal. Two of my sons have birthdays in the next few months, and these are their gifts. Shhhhh! Don’t tell! ha! It’s kind of a tradition in our family to get a new journal on your birthday. I kept a journal growing up, & I love looking back & reading them. I want my kiddos to have the same experience. So keep reading to see how easy these were to put together. :)

Hello! Isn’t springtime amazing? We are finally able to go outside again! Yay! The weather has been fabulous! :) I love all things spring ~ flowers, trips to the park, Easter, long walks, working in the yard & having lots of fun family time outside. Yes, outside not inside! Buuuut we still need to eat! ha! That is why I love the new Kraft Fresh Take meal kits that are available at Walmart. Kraft Fresh Take makes it so easy to prepare a yummy & nutritious meal for your family, and you will still have plenty of time left to do all that fun spring stuff! Yay! :) Recently I tried out a new meal on my family ~ Southwest Chicken, Cheddar Jack & Bacon Twice Baked Potatoes, Texas Toast & fresh green beans. They loved it! So keep reading to see how easy this meal was to put together. (I’ll also have a coupon for you, too!)

#TENways to Get Ready for Swimsuit Season #pmedia #ad

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Dr. Pepper Snapple Group but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TENways

This year is seriously flying by! I’m not sure what to think about that! ha! ;) Summer will be here before you know it! Yay! I love summer! I love having my kiddos home, love the lazy days, sleeping in, catching fire flies, watching my kiddos have a blast on a water blob, vacations & fireworks. I could go on & on! The only thing I’m not totally thrilled about is that summer also means swimsuit season! Ugh! Buuuut this year I am determined to be ready for it! So today I’m sharing #TENways to get ready for swimsuit season! So keep reading ~ so you can get ready, too! :)

#TENways to get Ready for Swimsuit Season at #pmedia #ad

1. Swap things you are currently eating for something a little better. For example ~ for lunch I’m swapping out my usual peanut butter & jelly with a healthy salad, an apple instead of chips & switching a full calorie soda with one of the TEN sodas I picked up recently.

Hello! How are you? Did you survive the weekend? Ours was crazy as usual! ha! :) Well, today I’m spilling the beans on how to have a clean & “spotless” house! A lot of my friends think our house is always clean, but of course, anyone that has a many kids as me (kids are messy!), a craft blog (crafts are pretty messy, too!) & are as busy as us knows that I can’t possibly have a clean house every single day. Buuut if you give me a 30 minute warning I can have our house looking pretty spotless! ha! So today I’m going to share my 7 tips for a clean & “spotless” home. So keep reading!

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites from Nessa Makes {contributor}

Hi! I am Vanessa from and I am so excited to be sharing a yummy recipe with you here on Ginger Snap Crafts!

It has been a recent goal of mine to make my own pretzels since I am practically obsessed with the things. I love a warm soft pretzel and I thought they would be super hard to make-- but surprisingly they are not! I made these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites, and they actually taste like pretzels. I am amazed. Ha!
