Chocolatey banana bread in ten easy steps

Banana bread is one of my favorite feel good things to bake so today I'm battening down the hatches and baking this chocolatey banana-ry goodness. We have especially wet and windy weather here in SoCal at the moment so I need all the feels I can get. I know there are a million banana bread recipes out there, but this one is so light and airy. It uses ingredients that you already likely have in your pantry and it bakes up so nice and big, that there's lots of slices for everyone!

Plus, there's only ten easy steps between you and this deliciousness! Read below for all the details.

DIY comfy pillow bed

Today I'm sharing a sweet little sewing project I created for Fiskars recently. It's a comfortable pillow bed that not only serves as a cozy spot to relax, it's perfect for kid sleepovers too. I chose to create mine using this soft textured minky fabric because who doesn't love sinking in to cozy, warm material.

Cheers - DIY bar tray

Cheers to a little mid-week adult beverage! Who fancies making one of these gorgeous bar trays, using a simple wooden tray and a Cricut?  What's more, if you get bored of this phrase after a little while, you can simply remove it and replace it with a fresh new one. I'll list all the supplies at the end of this post, including details on the lovely acacia wood platter I used.

Mini watercolor banner

I wanted to create something new and fresh to decorate the wall in my craft room where I work and  spend most of my time. It's important to me that I'm able to catch little glimpses of creativity and color about the room - it inspires me when I'm feeling stuck and it always brightens my day.

Chalkboard labels using Chalk Markers





Now that Christmas is safely packed away for another 12 months, I've moved on to springtime gift giving. I have several friends' birthdays coming up and I like to steal moments here and there out of my busy day, to go a little step further with embellished packaging.

Eye chart + FREE download for cutting

I love the trend for bold, quirky eye chart art that I've been seeing around, so I thought I'd try to make one of my own using my Cricut Explore. I love it! I put it on my mantel and now that I have all the supplies to make it, I'll be switching out the phrasing from time to time. My kids (one of whom wears glasses) thought it was fun too.

I'm going to share with you how I made this, so that you can make one of them for yourself.
