Hello there!

Hi friends! My name is Connie and I am so glad you are here!

I am a wife, mama to a sweet girl named Kaira, and a lover of Jesus!

This blog is going to be all things crafts and DIY. I have always loved crafting and creating. As a stay-at-home-mama, I especially need a way to express my creative side so that I don't go crazy (crazier I should add!) ;)

The past two years, I have been LOVING using my Silhouette cutting machine for all my crafts! It is *seriously* the best little machine ever! It cuts paper and does so much more, but medium that it cuts is vinyl.


My little Etsy shop is filled with many items that I am able to create with vinyl using my Silhouette machine.

Well, about a month ago, I saw that Silhouette America was having a casting call for people to apply be a part of the 2016-2017 Design Team. I was a bit nervous to apply because I *know* there are some amazingly talented people out there. I went ahead and took the plunge. It was exciting!!

Well!! On Friday 2/26 I got an email from the Silhouette America blog manager saying that I WAS CHOSEN!! AHHHHH!!! *dance party*

But I was not allowed to say anything for 5 days. 5. Long. Days.

I wanted to shout it on the rooftops, but, alas, I promised to keep my lips sealed until they announced it.

Today was the day! March 1, 2016 was when Silhouette America announced the new Design Team members on all their social media pages

There I am! The top left-ish :)
I feel so blessed and thrilled so a part of this team.  I feel honored to be able to share tutorials and other awesome things with all of you!

Thank you Silhouette America! I just know it is going to be a blast.

I am thankful to the Lord for blessing me with the desires of my heart! I am nothing without Him!

Thank YOU all for joining me on this ride :) I hope you have just as much fun as I will.
