Ballerina dance bag

We started MR in ballet this year. I haven’t watched a lot of her classes but she kind of is the ballet equivalent of the kid playing t-ball in the outfield picking flowers. But she is so stinking adorable though!

We made sure she had the basics: ballet shoes, leotard, leggings. But her bag situation was embarrassing. The only thing I could find was a beach bag that looks like a crab. It is orange and has huge eyes. While it is extremely cute and I love having MR take it to the beach, it just isn’t really a ballet bag.

I got a heat press for Christmas and the first thing I wanted to make was a new ballet bag for MR. I found an adorable ballerina SVG and got to work. MR and I made this bag together and she loves it. She takes it to class and places it in front of the mirror carefully so that everyone can see the ballerina. Adorable!



  1. Use the Ballerina SVG file and cut in Cricut. Don’t forget to turn mirror on!
  2. Weed your purple vinyl.
  3. Set the Cricut Heat Press to 280 degrees.
  4. Press your blank bag for 10 seconds.
  5. Place vinyl on bag and use the heat press for 30 seconds.
  6. Flip bag over and use the heat press for 15 seconds.

Dishwasher Safe Custom Vinyl Glass

I don’t know about you but I love all of those fun beer and wine glasses with cute sayings. I am a very simple person where I don’t really use them myself but they are great personalized gifts. Something else you should know about me is that if something can’t go into the dishwasher, I will NEVER use it. But seriously, my dishes revolve around the ease of cleaning it in the dishwasher. Needless to say making my own cute beer and wine glasses meant that they need to be dishwasher safe. Here are two of the designs that we gave to my husband’s sister and brother-in-law for Christmas. What do you think? They seemed to like them.



  1. Cut your customized saying or image in Cricut
  2. Place vinyl on glass.
  3. Apply 2-3 coats of Mod Podge to vinyl. You can go onto the glass but it will leave a film over the glass. It is kind of noticeable but if you make it look nice then it is okay. I ended up making a rectangle so that it looked consistent.

Kids Apron

As I have become busier in life with less time to myself I have discovered that I enjoy baking. And my kids love to join me which makes it even better. Although they probably just enjoy sampling the ingredients. I mean, I love baking chocolate chip cookies so I can eat the chocolate chips too!

My daughter loves wearing her apron when we bake and my son has been using my apron. He has no shame wearing pink! We will be baking and my daughter will all of a sudden yell “We forgot our aprons!” so we have to pull them out to continue. She is super cute.

For Christmas Santa brought him his own apron which I customized for him. Take a look!



  1. Cut your customized chef apron in Cricut
    • Cursive font – Magnolia Sky
    • Name – Lucida Grande (Bold)
  2. Use the Cricut Heat Press
    • Temperature – 270 degrees
    • Time
      • Front – 30 seconds
      • Back – 15 seconds

What does your apron look like?
