What I Craft With: Products that I use for my Etsy Shop

Hello and welcome back! For the past few month, I have been creating custom tumblers and selling them! I have been obsessed and also have been purchasing a ton of supplies. Today I want to share all of the products that I use daily for my Etsy Shop.

The main tool that I use is my Cricut Explore Air 2 in Emerald. This machine is badass and cuts like no other. The system comes with different templets that make it easy when creating a project. Right now the Cricut Explore Air 2 is on sale if you have really been wanting to get your hands on it! You can find the link here. I use mine everyday and let me tell you, I have made my money back on this machine, plus more.

My next tools that I use daily are the Nicapa basic tool set. They help so much when weeding vinyl, scrapping card stock from my mats, and applying vinyl to cups.

Another essential for a vinyl based craft is transfer tape. I picked up a large roll from Amazon and so far it’s the best that I have tried.

I can’t forget to mention scissors! I use them for just about everything, cutting the transfer tape, cutting ribbon, and the other obvious reasons for owning a pair of scissors. You can check out these good ones here.

They vinyl that I use I also purchased from Amazon. I use a holographic vinyl and a regular vinyl. The matte colored vinyl is a little bit harder to weed, but still turns out gorgeous.

( Holographic Vinyl, Regular Vinyl )

And there you have it people! Those are my everyday, basic tools. I just added a new piece to my collection, so I’ll have to update you in a blog post very soon! I hope that you enjoyed.

Let me know which tools that you can’t live without, I would love to try them.

Meet Julian

Hello there!

It’s been so long since I have uploaded a blog post! In these past months, I have been learning how to be a mama and loving every minute of it. My little Julian was born April 22nd, at 6:34 p.m. and weighed 9 pounds, 8 oz.

Here are just a few photos of him throughout the past four months.

Look forward to seeing more of him and I. I just can’t get enough of him. I have a ton of mama posts and much more coming soon! For more of us on the daily, make sure to follow us on Instagram.

Love always,

Kelsey

Mama Must-Haves

Hello there! My name is Kelsey, and I am a new mama! My little man is officially three weeks old today. In these short three weeks, I have already learned so much; and yet still have more to go. I did, however, find some fantastic products that have changed my motherhood game. I thought that I would share these products with you, just in case you are a new mama as well or are just looking for some awesome stuff!

My first Mama Must-Have is an electrical breast pump. This is more for the Mama’s that are breastfeeding and need to let out the extra milk. I love the fact that I don’t have to pump manually. I’m already so tired from being up all night with Julian; I don’t want to add more work that isn’t needed.

My second Mama Must-Have is a Brica Car Mirror. This mirror is magical! I am a working mama and get to take Julian with me. He hates the ride home and cries the entire time. Now all I have to do is turn the mirror on, it sings and has lights that will entertain him the whole drive home. It also comes with a remote so that it can be controlled while I am sitting at a red light. I am so in love!

This awesome thing puts him right to sleep!

While on the working subject, my next Mama Must-Have is the Snuggle Nest. The Snuggle Nest is a portable infant sleeper. I don’t think that I can live without this thing! He gets to sleep comfortably in the Snuggle Nest while Mama works.

He gets to lay comfortably while mama works.

My last Mama Must-Have for this blog post is the Baby Brezza. Let me say; this thing is a Keurig for making baby bottles. It dispenses formula, (however many ounces you need), warms the water, and mixes the water and baby formula for me. I have to do is put the lid on my baby’s bottle. Did I mention that it takes less than 30 seconds to do it all? The Baby Brezza comes in handy, especially for those long sleepless nights.

That brings me to the end of this post! I needed to share all of these products with you; it was killing me. I hope that you enjoyed it!

2020 New Year Goals

I love this time of year; this is the time to start fresh and become a better version of myself — it’s time to put my brain to use and think about what needs improvement in my life. So down below are some of my goals for the year 2020. I have put a lot of time and thought into these. I have a feeling that this is going to be the best year yet. 

This quote was found from Pinterest.
  1. I make more time for myself- I am always putting others before me. I am going to make it a priority to put myself first. 
  2. I will hit 50k followers on Instagram- I mean, who doesn’t want a big social media following? 
  3. I work with more local companies- Collaborations for my blog and Instagram. 
  4. I utilize my time better- I need to be more productive and manage my time better. 
  5. 2020 will be the year that I buy a house. 
  6. I drink more water- This goal is on my list every year. 
  7. I have stopped comparing myself and my life to others on social media. 
  8. I show up every day, and I do my personal best. 
  9. My credit score is 750. 
  10. I have more patience with everything and everyone. 

I can’t wait to cross all of these goals off my list next year; I can only go up from here. 

I hope that 2020 treats you better than in 2019. Happy Goal Setting.

How To Get A Good Nights Rest

Lately, I have been all about my sleep; I love to get a good night’s rest so that I can have a productive next day. In today’s post, I’m sharing how I get a good nights sleep and what helps to sleep better.

Shower Time

STEP 1: I am a night time shower person. I love to take a shower to wash off everything from that day; it’s soothing to me. I love to take my time in the shower as well; I will play some music, listen to some music, or even do a little meditation.

STEP 2: After the shower, it’s skincare time! I wash my face, use a toner, eye cream, moisturize, and apply lip balm. I love how clean my skin feels once I am all done.

STEP 3: Time to hydrate, I will have some water before bed. I find that it is relaxing.

STEP 4: If I am in the mood, I will read a book, it helps me to get a little sleepier.

STEP 5: I am obsessed with this app that I found; it’s called Headspace. It is an app that helps with meditation, but it also tells stories and makes soothing sounds. I love to listen to the Midnight Launderette, there are washer and dryer sounds in the background, and the guy who tells the story has a very soothing voice.

STEP 6: After I listen to a few minutes of Headspace, I am usually out like a light!

I hope that you enjoyed this post! Let me know in the comments what helps you get a better nights rest.

5 Favorite Walmart Purchases

I have not been this excited to write a blog post in a very long time. Today I was posting a few of my favorite products on my Instagram stories, but then realized that they were all from Walmart. SO I had the best idea to create a blog post for you and leave all of the links so you can get your hands on them as well.

So as you keep reading, you are going to discover my favorite Walmart purchases! I hope that you enjoy this post. I plan on writing a part two and maybe even turn this into a series.

  1. Pioneer Woman Slow Cooker $29.84 Marked Down from $39.99
This bad boy saves me from slaving over the stove in this Bakersfield heat! I love it and use it any chance that I get. There are plenty of crock pot recipes on Pinterest to try out. Follow my crock pot board for inspiration.

2. McCormick Garlic and Herb Black Pepper and Sea Salt $3.74

I use this guy in everything that I cook. It’s soooooo good. Take my word.

3. Stovetop Kettle $19.48 Marked Down from $24.00

She’s Bad. I’m a little old school when it comes to my coffee. I love using a stovetop kettle.

4. Pioneer Woman Knife Set $49.97 Marked Down from $59.97

This isn’t my photo, but I do own this knife set and now can’t live without it. Thank you Pioneer Woman, you are life goals.

5. Better Homes and Gardens Candles $6.97

These candles are amazing! They are super affordable, smell great, and fill up the house. I love the Bath and Bodywork candles, but they can get pretty pricy. At Walmart, I can get four for the price of one. Who doesn’t love a good save?

I hope that this post has inspired you to shop your local Walmart very soon, I love Target, but sometimes you can’t beat Walmart prices. If you have any of these products, let me know what you think of them. Also, I would love more Walmart recommendations.
