10 Free Arrow PNG Graphics


So I am officially with my Marine now! So much relief... I mean, this day was only a year and 3 months in coming! I am SO excited & now that I have an actual house to call my own I can start doing all the awesome DIY's I've been storing up for the past 3 years of my marriage.

In the meanwhile, here is a freebie graphic post. This one is probably my FAVORITE! I shared some free arrow png graphics a while back (HERE) and they were a big hit! Since then, I've come up with quite a stash of hand drawn arrows, and I felt like a Scrooge keeping them all to myself. Arrows are meant to fly & these ones are too pretty not to share!

How to Make SUPER realistic Paper Roses


I have been experimenting with paper flowers for years now (see my past tutorials HERE and HERE) but I was always disappointed by the lack of realistic color in my flowers. I about lost it when I saw the gorgeous result my friend Lucy, from Craftberry Bush, had using watercolors and crepe paper. Want to see what I'm talking about? Of course you do! HERE is her tutorial.

How to use Polaroid Graphics for your Instagrams


I am finally at the accumulative point in my military life as a Marine Wife, when I will finally be able to live with my husband in the same place! For those of you who don't know, my husband is in the Marines, and has been in training for over a year.  And in a week or so (the date got pushed back again, UGH!), we will finally be moving to our permanent duty station! Yay!

I am really exhausted right now, and I know that it's going to get really crazy with the big move in a few days, but I wanted to make sure to put up some fun tutorials so there won't be a huge gap in my blogging. 

This tutorial is intended to show you how to layer the polaroid graphics I shared with you all a few days ago, and use them as instagram photos.

Military Wife Humor

While I wouldn't say that my husband came back from boot camp a "different person" there were some funny things I noticed during his 10 days of leave before heading out to MCT.

What's in YOUR purse?




What's in your purse?

I just got the CUTEST beauty tool to add to my collection of favorites in mine. It's the Venus Snap Razor! I am so in love, because I am the type of girl who literally carries EVERYTHING & a little something extra in my purse. Don't worry, I won't show you everything that is currently in my purse, lets just say it's kind of like a diaper bag right now!
