Halloween is seriously my favorite holiday!! I love the weather, the fall colors, candy, decorations, and most of all dressing up!! For the last 12 years my husband and I have dressed up to match. As we have had kids we have just incorporated them and we always, always go as a theme together!! If your looking for couple or family costume ideas, here are a couple of ours. Fred and Wilma Flinstone, Jack and Sally Skellington, Aladdin, jasmine and abo, Incredibles, ninja turtles, toy story, star wars, hotel transylvania, just to name a few. I will have to dedicate a whole post just for our halloween costumes!! This year we are adding How to Train a Dragon in the mix!!! I have been so excited for this years costumes! I typically don’t make our costumes.  I have done parts here and there but I couldn’t help myself when the kids suggested this theme. All the leather studded accents looked like so much fun to make. I was sooo excited to give the new Cricut knife blade a try on my Cricut Maker Machine.

DIY CLUTCH BAG WITH STRAP BY SIMPLICITY MADE WITH THE CRICUT MAKER!!!

DIY CLUTCH BAG WITH STRAP BY SIMPLICITY MADE WITH THE CRICUT MAKER!!!

*This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Happy summer everyone!!! Today I am going to be sharing with you a tutorial for this darling Clutch bag with strap! The Cricut Maker has so many possibilities and one of them is cutting fabric! Which is so awesome because who likes to cut out all the pattern pieces when making a project? Not me!! Cricut has teamed up with Simplicity and they now have hundreds of patterns that have been digitized for the Cricut Maker!! In the Past when sewing a project there were so many steps before you even would get to the fun sewing part. Cut the pattern out, pin onto fabric, cut out fabric, un pin everything and then try and get it to all fit back into the envelope. Cricut and Simplicity have cut all those steps out for you by creating ready to make projects. Simplicity has digitized their patterns to work with the Cricut Maker so it will now cut and mark all your fabric with the pattern markings and notches! This will create fabric pieces that will fit together perfectly.This is the future of sewing. YOu can now teach your children to sew at a younger age since the cutting is not involved. If you had given up sewing due to not being abke to cut due to illness or injuries can now get back to sewing. If you have been intimidated just by looking at the pattern pieces on the floor, or if you have been wanting to make projects to sell in a larger quantity for your business, This partnership combo is for you!!! Take a look through all the fun projects are already ready to go for you in the Simplicity projects in Cricut Design Space.My baby just got potty trained so I thought it was time to downsize the diaper bag and have something smaller and this bag was perfect. Keep reading for a step-by-step tutorial and my tips that I would suggest for this cute bag!

The SportFlex Iron-On is created for use on nylon and polyester materials. Features the Cricut StrongBond™ Guarantee* ensuring you get a long lasting product!! It’s thin, flexible and very stretchy.  In the past the stretchy material has been tricky to use the iron on with because it would end up cracking when stretched.

SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP

SPINACH ARTICHOKE DIP

Amazing spinach artichoke dip. This dip is perfect for any party especially those superbowl parties comin up! get the full recipe on www.sugarcoatedhousewife.com

I absolutely love a good Spinach Artichoke Dip. I offered to bring one to our annual New Year’s Eve party this year. I quickly realized that I had never actually made Spinach Artichoke dip! I used to buy the one at Costco that was really yummy but they don’t sell it anymore. I search around for some recipes. My husband hates onions so I needed a recipe without those and I don’t like mayonnaise in artichoke dip. I found a couple recipes but nothing exactly what I was looking for. I mixed a few together and adjusted some things and made this one up!! I added lots of artichokes to this recipe so you can really taste them. I also love how soft and creamy it is. It was a huge hit and everyone was asking for the recipe, so I wanted to share it with you all!!
