Goodwill Haul | #1

Went to goodwill on my lunch, I try to go once a week or once every two weeks. I have been on myself to only buy things that I really love and not stuff just because it’s really cheap lol. Anybody else have to do this?

Today I found a yoga block to add to my exercise area (I want to learn how to do yoga) I paid $1.99 and it was originally on clearance at target for $9.08. Then I picked up a Apple Watch screen protector for $6.99 originally $14.99, I needed one because the one I had when I first got my watch disappeared so I haven’t had one on for a long time. Oops.

Also I have been looking for a small calendar for at work, because we used to get the small ones that are sticky and I would use it for dates. I have not gotten one for this year and I found this cute one for $.99 I was excited about this. Then I found ChapStick total hydration pack of two in house red and cooling peppermint for $1.09.

That was my little haul for the day!

Have a fabulous day.


Bible journaling | My first experience

I bought a bible journal from Amazon a while back when I wanted to get into bible journaling.  But then it sat on the shelf for probably about half a year cause I was too intimidated to start.  I would sit for hours a long time on Instagram and Pinterest looking at all the amazing and creative spreads.  But just could not get myself to actually create a spread.  I craft a lot in general so I had some supplies on hand I just could not bring myself to start that first page.

So when Christmas rolled around I picked up some actual bible journaling supplies from a Lifeway store. They had some illustrated faith supplies on sale that I had been eyeballing from Instagram #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling.

So once Christmas came and went and we all got settled down I finally picked a night and got all my supplies out and created these three spreads.  I don’t think it’s too bad for my first time.  I was happy with them, and it got me excited to get into the bible.

Do you bible journal and if so what is your #1 must have?




I can’t believe it is 2018.  I know with a new year that means some people try to have resolutions and goals; I am one of those people.  I told myself I wanted to eat better, spend less, and all the normal things I want every year.  But then I get upset in the middle of the month when I don’t follow through with them, anyone else that way?

So this year I want to focus on actually being the best version of my self and working on that each and every day.  I know there will be days I may fail but I want to just let that go and keep working harder towards my goals and not give up just because I had a bad day.  I think if I change my mindset it will help me become the best version of myself which is someone who is grateful, caring, selfless and be all around good person.

What are some goals you have for this year?



Hello, it has been a while since I have blogged.  It is Saturday morning and I am sitting here drinking some sweet tea, blogging and watching my kids color and work on learning work books.

I got to sleep in a little this morning and my awesome husband made me a breakfast sandwich and then watched the kids so I could go into town alone. 🙂  That means I got to go to Dollar Tree, Goodwill, Walmart without having to get kids in and out of the car, no tears or tantrums, overall it was a peaceful time that this momma needed.  I think this should be a once a week thing!  I don’t think my husband or wallet would agree.  HAHA

Anyway just wanted to share what I was doing  today and what I am planning for the blog.  I would like to start blogging again and using this blog for a personal outlet.  To share anything I love, want to talk about,  and experiencing in life.  Pretty much all about my life as a full time working, wife, mommy, and crafter/photographer wannabe.

Stay tuned for more from me..







HeatPress Story

So I shared that I was purchasing a heat press a couple weeks ago and I would share my journey. Funny story I ordered it late Friday night (which it was on back order it would be in stock for two weeks) then on Sunday morning I was drinking coffee with my mom and grandma. I was excited and told my mom hey guess what I ordered a heat press and now I can put designs on shirts.. my grandma said why didn’t you say something sooner I have one sitting in my closet collecting dust that you can have.  I was like seriously, so I went over to her house and sure enough there was a nice one sitting there. So I cancelled my order and got a free heat press!! I was over the moon here are something I’ve done so far.

New Crafting Machine and Journey 

Good afternoon, I am so excited after much thought process I decided to purchase a heat press.  after researching them for about three days and decided on this one!!

I also ordered some vinyl, and teflon sheets..  I am very excited to dip into the HTV journey, any body else already there and have some tips?

  I want to purchase some tote bags, koozies, shirts and onesies to create designs on and sale locally.

This isn’t really something I want to get into big time I just want to sell some stuff to pay for my crafting hobbies.. Cause lets face it I am obsessed. I have been waking up at 4 am all last week so I can craft before going to work at my full time job. That should explain how obsessed I am.

Anyways I just thought I would blog about this first step into HTV and a heat press so I can start documenting my crafting journey.

Have a great evening and rest of the weekend..


Okay so I have been obsessed with crafting lately. It’s my absolute favorite thing to do!! Here are some of the things I have made so far..

 I definitely want to starting making stuff to sell, and start saving up some money for a emergency fund.. but first I need to practice to get better and better..

Well better go to sleep, it’s getting late and I have to be up early for work!
