10 Yummy Lemonade Recipes for Summer

Mmmmmmmmm. I've kind of been obsessed with LEMONADE lately. Chick-Fil-A has the BEST lemonade - and it comes in a yummy diet version, too. I started looking up yummy homemade lemonades on Pinterest and found some that look A-MA-ZING. Here in Utah, the weather is warm, the outdoors are calling my name, and you'll definitely be able to find me mixing up some of these yummy summer lemonades in the next few months. Do you have a favorite lemonade recipe or restaurant that serves your fave lemonade? Let me know in the comments! Enjoy this sweet roundup!

Shadow Box Frame Makeover

Hello friends! Happy Monday! I hope everyone's weekend was amazing. We spent a lot of time with family, took Ava on her first pony ride {she LOVED IT!} and the best part? We found a home! A home we want to buy! And live in forever! It is amazing, and I had that "this is the one!" feeling while walking through it. I cried when we walked out to the backyard, because it felt like our home. We've just gone through so many homes that weren't going to work out and lost a couple from offers not working out, too, so going through this one was just the best experience. Cross your fingers they accept our offer!

Today, I've got a home decor DIY that would go great in a new home, an old home, an apartment and everything in-between! I originally shared this post on Belle of the Kitchen. At Target {of course} I found some discounted shadow box frames. The one in the picture below is super similar to the ones I bought, except the inside part was NEON YELLOW. Not that I don't love me some neon, but it wouldn't work with my home's color scheme. I decided to buy the frames anyway, since they were so cheap, and do a little burlap makeover to make it an interchangeable picture frame. Read on to see how easy it was!




You only need a few supplies for this fun project: Shadow Box Frame, Burlap {or other fabric of choice}, hot glue gun and a clip of some sort. That's it!

Tip: Craft stores often have great picture frames sales. Get the store's app on your phone for coupons, too!


There are only 3 steps!

DIY Coffee Filter Garland ... Guest Post by Laura of Lovely Wren

Hi Everyone! My name is Laura, and I blog about knitting, crafting and photography over at Lovely Wren. I've never done a blog swap before, so I'm thrilled to be trying it today for the first time. A big thanks to Daniela for having me :) I've come up with a sweet little DIY coffee filter flower garland to share with you today. It's somewhat time consuming, but easy to do, and gives you beautiful results! I made it to hang over my corkboard and brighten up my apartment, but it would also be great for birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, or just about any kind of party!

My Review of Silhouette Stencil Material *spoiler alert: it's amazing!*

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been a little MIA lately...we are still living at my dad's and YEP my craft box is STILL packed up.  :(  BUT - I'll try really hard to make it up to you with lots of fun crafts when I get my own house with my own craft room (hopefully!). We put in an offer on a home today, but the house is already under contract, so we are just a backup offer. We probably won't get it, so we are continuing to look...hoping we find that one special home soon!

Today, I've got a Silhouette tutorial for you. I originally guest posted this on Get Silvered and am excited to share it with you guys now! For those of you who don't know, I own the Silhouette Cameo and L-O-V-E it. I use it for almost every craft I make.  One in particular is the Maternity Countdown Shirt that I sell {SHOP}. I make each shirt by hand and would cut out a stencil for the numbers each and every time. It was kind of time consuming and used up a lot of vinyl per shirt. Just a couple months ago, I found out that Silhouette sells a -- you ready for this? -- REUSABLE STENCIL MATERIAL!!!!!! I pretty much freaked out and immediately bought some to try out. Well, it's AMAZING! It's basically a thin plastic that I use over and over and over again. I make so many shirts with one stencil - it saves me SO much time and money. This post is all about my review and a tutorial for cutting and using it!



The Stencil Material comes in a tube. This is great for storing, but not totally great for the stencil material itself. Mine had a few bubbles (you can see in pic below) which made me think at first that the cutting part did not cut all the way through. I was happy to see when I unloaded it that it did cut perfectly - I just had to pull the stencil off the paper backing carefully to make sure it came off along the cut lines in a couple of places. {addition: since I wrote this review, I've purchased more stencil material, and it didn't bubble. Maybe it was just my first try...!}
