Spring is a time for celebrations of all types. Mother’s Day, graduations, baby showers, bridal showers, the list is endless.

Here are a few spring Cricut crafts you can create this weekend to prepare for any celebration this season sends your way. Flowers are a beautiful gift but within only a few days, they are gone. These delicate paper flowers could be used to decorate for any event or as an easy addition to a spring wreath! Head over to Create and Babble for an excellent tutorial that will guarantee crafting success. This is one of many Cricut crafts I have created this spring.

DIY Mother’s Day Gifts Your Mom Actually Wants

Mother’s Day is only a month away. If you’re a mother you can start looking forward to gifts and celebrations, but you may have a few mothers you’d like to celebrate as well! We found a  few simple DIY projects that any mother (or mother-in-law, grandma, BFF, sister, etc.) would love to receive.  I’d be lying if I didn’t say that this project was one of my favorites. Maybe I’m a bit partial. I created this serving tray a few months ago, but it’s perfect for any mother! Check out all the details over on my blog, Designers Sweet Spot. Here’s an idea every mother can get behind. An emergency chocolate stash for those days that seem to last forever! Head over to Eighteen25 to print off a tag perfect for this project, or for inspiration for your own creation. Average Inspired enlisted the help of her sweet kiddos in creating this gift for their grandmother. The options with this project are virtually endless and you’ll be able to capture those tiny fingerprints forever, something all mothers can get behind. While most coasters are created using tile and other fragile materials, A Little Craft in Your Day used wooden coasters. The abstract nature of these would make it a perfect project to do with your little ones. Flowers are a pretty common Mother’s Day gift. However, most people don’t go through the added trouble of creating a personalized vase! Give the gift of a pretty decoration for now, and a special keepsake for later with this two-in-one surprise. Home Stories A to Z shares a simple tutorial that…

Beautiful Mudroom Design & Decor

Mudroom, mud room, laundry room, entry way. How can one room have so many names? Not everyone has a room designated for these purposes, but everyone has a place they dump coats, shoes, and keys. I have found that a little organization in this area goes a long way when trying to leave the house in a hurry before work or school each day. Here are a few beautiful mudrooms from around the web to inspire you to make the most of your space. Can you imagine walking into a mudroom this beautiful after a long day at work? Designing Vibes shares an excellent tutorial on how to achieve this look for less than $200. You definitely want to check this one out! You may not have an entire room to dedicate to your mudroom like many do, but that doesn’t mean you need to settle for an unorganized mess. Refresh Restyle used an old TV cabinet to create a storage space for coats and shoes. Head over to her blog to see the inside of this creative mudroom solution. Lemon Thistle made the most of her small entryway by creating this cute yet functional space! I love how the coat hooks double as a creative design element. You may not have space for an entire hutch but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on storage options. Worthing Court used the top half of an old hutch to maximize on her storage space. Talk about mudroom dreams! Simply Kierste was blessed with a giant laundry room that doubles as an entryway. The storage in this room is…
