There's not much that is quite as exciting as friends announcing they are having a baby. I had 3 of my own, they were each such unique gifts, and I loved [almost] every moment of being pregnant.
What better way to celebrate a friend or family member having a new bundle of joy than getting crafty with some DIY projects?
Check out all the links below for free files my friends and I have put together! And if you want my free file (Some Things Are Worth The Wait), get access to my free SVG library here:

It's nearly here! This year has totally flown by but I've been dreaming of these HOT summer days all through the winter. School being out, spending days by the pool...and it's almost here! So just like any other season of change, we of course need new project ideas, right?
So I've rounded up a few really fun summer project ideas with the help of my friends and we've made 20 pool time SVG available to you for free. (skip to the end for the freebies)
1. Pool Party Invite:
Nick at the Bearded Housewife is always the best with paper crafts and his cards are so fun to make. If you have plans to host a swim party be sure to download his "Time for a Pool Party" SVG.
2. Pool Party Decor
And if you're hosting a pool party, you might want some fun food toppers to make things more festive. Gina over at Gina Creates has these fun files available to you! I can't even decide on a favorite among them because they are all so cute!
3. Drink Bucket
What's a pool party...
Do you have a graduate getting ready to celebrate the big milestone? Whether it's Elementary School, Middle School, High School or College graduation, the best way to prep for the festivities is with FREE SVGs!
Here are some of my favorite ideas from some of my favorite makers! And bonus, they're giving away these files for free. :)
1. Money Card
What a fun way to gift what everyone really wants anyway. CASH. You can get this file from Gina over at Gina Creates.
2. You Did It, Cake Topper.
What's a party without some cake! And you don't want just any store decorated cake, you've got to make it fun and unique. This one could be customized with your graduate's school colors! Snag this file from Liz on Call.
3. Cupcake Toppers.
If you don't have cake, then you must be having cupcakes! How cute is the cap sitting on the 2?! Get this SVG from Spot of Tea Designs.
4. And So The Adventure Begins (handlettered by me!)
As we hop right on past St. Patrick's Day, it's time to look ahead to what's next....EASTER!

Now that we're past Valentine's Day, it's time to get out all the green you can find! We've got St. Patrick's Day just a month away.
How do you celebrate? We have a parade here in town with an Irish fest after, some years I've even done an early 5K run...not this year though. :)
No matter how you celebrate, if you're ready to craft up some cards, gifts or fun t-shirts my friends and I have free cut files to help you with your crafts!
1. Fun Rainbow Glasses
Paper crafts are so much fun and now with cutting machines, you don't need to be able to cut straight lines with scissors (was anyone else a scrapbooker back before Cricuts came out?!). You little cutie will look adorable in these glasses designed by PersiaLou.

2. Shamrock Shirt
This simple, but cute design has everyone covered, you could even make the design small, pocket-size, for a man that doesn't want anything too flashy. But for me,...
Valentine's day has a reputation of being a 'hallmark holiday' for couples. To be honest, I was never a big fan of Valentine's day when it felt like a forced day to give chocolates, cards and roses to a significant other. I've always been a rebel when it comes to social norms and I'd rather give and receive 'just because' rather than because society tells us to...I'll get off my soap box now.
Over the last few years, being a single person and a mom, I actually like Valentine's day WAY MORE now. Funny how life works. We use it as a day to celebrate everyone we love, and no matter your stance on the holiday, my friends and I gathered up a bunch of new free cut files for you!

It was this business. And not just actually starting the business but ALLOWING myself to have big dreams and chase them and not give up on them.
Have you allowed your self to dream big? Is there something you wish you could do if you knew FOR SURE if would work out?
While there is never a guarantee, giving myself the opportunity to take a risk has turned into one of my proudest accomplishments.
This little business is run from my home, in the hours that work around my kids' schedule, and it's not only given me freedom from my cubicle 9-5 job but it's given me so much more! It's given me purpose, connection, and the ability to help others. And those things have turned out to be the best gift ever.
I've always believed that as you climb the ladder in life, you should turn around and pull others up with you if you can. And I was so excited...
There may have been some restrictions last year with weddings but now, nuptials can go full swing again. And often with weddings come bridal showers, couple showers and bachelorette parties. So of course, gifts are needed!
Most couples are registered for specific gifts at major retailers but sometimes you'd like to make something more personal and special for the occasion.
I've put together 6 DIY bridal gift ideas you can whip up with your Cricut or Silhouette machine, plus you can get all the SVGs for FREE to make these!
A custom 'bride' denim jacket would be the perfect attire for a fun bachelorette night out! Or a 'bride' robe for a spa day or wedding day as she gets ready. You could customize these gifts to match the wedding colors and I know any bride would be over-the-moon to receive this.
Supplies needed: Heat Transfer Vinyl, a Heat Press or Iron, Jacket or Robe, and the FREE cut file you can get at Crafting Overload....
