I don't know about you guys, but I am done with winter! I know, I know, I can't complain too much because at least we're not still covered with snow like a lot of places I know of (including places I have lived before!) But we had an above normal amount of ice and snow this winter, and several days of cancelled school. Now the temps are back in the 40s like they should be, but it keeps raining, and I miss the sun!

Don't Worry, Cricut is Easy to Learn!

Hello friends, it's Friday! I hope you've had a great week and have something to look forward to this weekend as well. Maybe it's some crafting time! If you have a Cricut Explore sitting in a box that you haven't opened yet, this would be the perfect time. And I'm going to show you that the machine and the software, Design Space, are easy to learn and use.

Instant Pot Cheesecake Recipes

Super fast cheesecake baked right in the Instant Pot? I was skeptical too, until I tried it myself, and I'm a total believer! Did you get an Instant Pot for Christmas? Have you used it yet, or is it still in the box? What better way to get motivated than over a dozen Instant Pot Cheesecake recipes!

Instant Pot White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

I'm trying to get more comfortable with my Instant Pot. I bought it a few months ago and just really haven't used it that often. Plus, my husband cooks dinner most of the time, so he's actually used it even more than I have! But I knew I had to try a cheesecake recipe! 
(affiliate links included so it's easy for you to get what you need to make these) So I adapted this White Chocolate Cheesecake for the Instant Pot, and for using 3 mini pans instead of a regular 7 inch one

Abstract Gold Painting DIY

All our snow and ice and being stuck inside gave me some time to finally work on an art piece I've wanted to make for a while. I have several blank canvases that I've stocked up on, but had yet to commit to actually putting paint on any of them! Then I got about halfway through my painting and took it to Instagram to ask my friends there what they thought it still needed. Some people suggested black or another color like teal. Some liked the idea of splattered paint or glitter. I love the combo I ended up with!

Custom Baby Onesies with Cricut

Custom baby gifts with Cricut

Just a couple of months ago, my baby turned 8. I knew long ago that the "baby phase" was over for me. But luckily, I still have friends and family having babies - which means I still get cuddle time and baby crafting time! Making baby gifts with my Cricut is a breeze, and it's just one of the kinds of DIY projects you can make with a Cricut.

For this tutorial I'm showing you how to use iron-on vinyl to make custom baby onesies. Plus, you don't need to own a heat press to use heat transfer vinyl.
