My Birthday!

Today I sit back and reflect on all the things I have gone through, been through and still going through in life. It’s been one wild journey I can tell you that. But I am so grateful for this life. Everything tragedy, every once of sadness, happiness, loss and gain is leading me to where I am supposed to be.

Life is a precious thing. So much can be lost and so much can be gained in a matter of moments. All I can say is that I cherish each everything and embrace like a champ. So as I celebrate another year of life that almost wasn’t twice over. I give all thanks to God for waking me up and leading me to my purpose.

How To Make Leather HairBows With Silhouette Cameo

For the longest time, I have been cutting all my leather hair bows by hand. I knew it was a way or should be a way to cut them with my Silhouette Cameo. And what do you know, there is. Now, I’m going to share with you how I did so.

Resize to fit your needs.

The first step is by finding a template or pattern. I just did a Google search to find a template and used the trace feature in my Silhouette to resize my bow template. If you don’t know how to use the trace feature I have a post showing you how to do so. How to use trace feature in Silhouette Cameo!

Above you will see the proper setting to cut leather fabric with Silhouette. For the material setting I chose the Leatherette setting, the blade setting is 10, speed is set to 3, force is 33 and passes I chose 2. I also used the fabric blade also set that to 10. Once that is all set then go ahead and cut. Once you have it cut go ahead and put it together like you normally would.

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Ideas!

Hello Everyone,

This year I am super behind getting my mother a gift for Mother’s Day. I usually have a plan in mind but, it’s becoming hard to get her something that I haven’t gotten her already. See, I am the type of person that loves to give not only personalized gifts. But also gifts that I haven’t purchased for her already. My mother is very gracious and will appreciate anything I get for her. With that being said I picked up a few items from Target that I know she will love. I’ve also thrown in a set of bracelets and a journal to jot down her thoughts. Below, I share with you the items I purchased in this weeks video for her.

Share with me in the comments some things you purchased for your mom.

Easy Soft Baby Headband Tutorial

I have been working on re-vamping my website making these lovely baby headbands. I used soft elastic and a nylon headband along with felt and leather sheets. You first want to cut a 1″ piece from a pair of nylons once that has been done you will pull at them until they begin to roll and that’s it. For fold over soft elastic, you want to cut a piece that will fit the circumference of your baby/child’s head. The connect it with some hot glue. To create the bows you can watch the video below for complete detail on how to make these soft headbands.
