Monster Trick or Treat Bag {tutorial} + Cricut Maker vs. Explore Air 2

This post is brought to you by Cricut. Affiliate links are used for your convenience. Thank you!

Good morning! The holidays are upon us, and I have been busting out projects left & right! ha! How about you? I love this time of year! It’s my favorite! From DIY Halloween costumes, home d├ęcor, Thanksgiving tablescapes, fall porches, Christmas ornaments & more, I am so glad I own a Cricut Maker! It makes all this crafting & creating a reality, & my results are so much better when I use a Cricut Maker. I would never be able to get everything done without my Maker. Today I’d love to share why the Maker is a better choice than any other cutting machine out there (even the Cricut Explore Air 2). I’m sharing the reasons why I’m glad that I have a Maker & why you should put one on your Christmas list, and I’m also sharing this fun Monster Trick or Treat Bag tutorial with you as well. Let’s get started! :)

Good morning! Last week my college aged son sent me a message & wanted to know if I could help make him & his friend matching Halloween costumes. Of course, I was so willing to help out!

DIY Under the Bed Storage Crates

This post is brought to you by Life Storage.

Good morning! One of my loves (after all things crafty!) is organization! I just love finding clever, fun & aesthetically pleasing ways to organize all the things. Recently I was over on the Life Storage blog sharing how we added TONS of storage under one of my kiddos’ beds. This is one of those projects that I asked myself why we didn’t do this years ago! It was so easy, looks amazing & these storage crates hold so much stuff! You can get the tutorial right here. Buuuuuut first, stick around for a little bit. I’m sharing some of my favorite organization posts with you, too! Keep reading, if you’re an organization junkie like me. ha!
