I am beyond excited about this partnership! Little Sun Hat is using a selection of my fabrics to create an exclusive limited edition valentine collection! Their bonnets and caps are beyond cute, mix in some reds, pinks, and white, and I am practically giddy at how cute they turned out.
Now I just need a baby girl! But since that isn’t going to happen for who knows how long, I’ll have to settle for hoarding these adorable little sun hats!
To purchase one of these hats visit The Little Sun Hat shop. I recommend signing up for their email list to get a 10% off coupon.
We are also hosting a giveaway starting today 1/30-2/2 on each of our instagram accounts. To enter, follow Little Sun Hat & The Project Girl and then leave a comment on the image that you see below. In your comment you’ll need to tag two friends. We will EACH pick a winner from our comments on the morning on 2/3. So that means that you have 2 chances of winning if you comment on both of our accounts!
I know that some of you aren’t on instagram, so I am going to have a little giveaway for commenters here as well. Just leave a comment below telling me which of the valentine bonnet or caps is your favorite, and I’ll choose one random winner on tuesday (2/3) to win that hat.

Welcome to my blog, The Project Girl! This room design is part of a competition! If you love my son’s lumberjack room, I am hoping that you will take a second to go and vote for me on the Cricut Facebook Page (you don’t need a Facebook account). Thanks so much for your help, every vote is greatly appreciated!
The big day is here!!! 6 Weeks ago I was given my Cricut Design Star Challenge FINAL round assignment. The 5 finalists were to re-decorate a room with the help of the cricut explore, $1000 budget, and $500 in Cricut supplies. Off to the races through Christmas, and New Years, and CHA, and ALT! It’s been a really busy 6 weeks for me, but all the late-nights have paid off and I’m soooo excited to reveal my room makeover to you! I have 2 boys and I was just loving this plaid/lumberjack craze so much, that I created a lumberjack themed kids room! With bunk beds!
PIN this room to save it for later!
Cricut also asked me to create a video to go with the room reveal. Check it out here (disable pop-up blocker to see):
(this is totally my first video and I edited it and everything. scary!):
Lets back up to the before… wah wah. Cute bedding! but pretty much an empty room. The byproduct of moving 6 months ago.
It’s still airy and bright, but so much more pazazz and I love how all the white and black make all the plaid and buffalo check just pop. I also want to take this moment to point out that I designed the duvet covers and used black iron-on to create the patterns on them. They totally MAKE the room, but so many people I’ve show them to think that I bought them!
The desk area is so great. I actually had purchased the desk a few weeks prior to this assignment, and was so incredibly happy that I picked the right color! The brackets I had ordered 6 months ago from West Elm clearance. This room was totally meant to be!
One of the biggest reasons I wanted to do a bunk bed was for the loft space beneath. The perfect place for a little cozy reading of all our favorite baby lit books. My boys love it so much already.

I posted this picture of my craft room on my instagram feed a few weeks ago. I had just cleaned up my craft room in preparation for some upcoming projects. It’s still kind of a wreck in there though because I really needed to get to the organization of the space. And basically after a few hours of working on projects, the room looks more or less like this:
Stuff piling out of the closet, drawers overflowing, floors completely covered.
Really it’s just in need of some good old fashioned purging and organizing.
Michaels asked all of the Michaels Makers to organize our craft spaces using organization products from their store. I had a business trip this month, so instead of taking the time to run to my local store, I ordered all my supplies on Michaels.com. I ordered several large handled boxes, a few scrapbook cases (my favorite, I already have a ton), two rolling scrapbook chests, and two metal storage racks that hangs over the door.
Because I design scrapbooking supplies, I become quickly overrun by papers and stickers. I use the Scrapbook cases to divide up scrapbooking lines that I’ve designed, or my card stock stash. I have lots of piles like this of newer scrapbooking lines, that I just hadn’t gotten around to organizing.
I was able to just scoop them up, organizing by name, and start filling up all the cases in my scrapbook chests.
The chests are so nice because you can wheel them around for easy access, and the boxes don’t tip like they might do if you stack them too high. I filled up all these chests with papers I had lying around, and have enough stuff to fill about 4 more.
I was super thrilled to find that the chests fit two across in my closet, and well below the lowest shelf. You can also see additional scrapbook cases all filled up, and above those the size of the large modular bins.
When I saw the over the door organizers, I was beyond thrilled. I have two big doors leading to my closet, and knew they would be perfect for this item. It’ comes in a really small box, and is easy to assemble. I ended up swapping some of the accessories from one door to the next to customize my configuration just how I wanted it.
I love all the components that come with the system including these chains and hooks for any flat embellishments. I used mine for ribbon so this became my ribbon door.
The other side is housing all my Cricut supplies. I LOVE the hooks that come with the system, the were the perfect depth to slide 3 vinyl rolls on.
And I tidied up all the shelves and swept for days, but finally the room is looking really nice!
My favorite thing is still the door organizers. Such a great use of wasted space, and so well designed too.
And to break in the new space, I created this paper wreath with Recollections card stock and my Cricut Explore. I created about 2/3rd of the die line files, the rest were from the Cricut Design Space.
It made a mess, but everything was much easier to clean up when stuff is organized.
