Meet my 2015 Creative Team Members!

Ok guys! I'm baaaack! I feel like I fell off the face of the blogging world but I am slowly making my return after having baby number 3. (Announcements and more details on my new babe that you don't care about to come!)

But I had to introduce you to the three lovely ladies that will be joining the Dream Crafter Creative Team this year! I am so excited to tell you all about these girls and their amazing talents! Like me, they are just starting out and I think once you get to know them, they will make a big splash in this blogging business. They are beyond gifted in every aspect of the game. So, without further adieu I present: 


Natasha Byrd from Natasha Byrd 




Hi everyone! My name is Natasha. I'm a wife, mama and wanna-be foodie living on the beautiful island of Oahu. I love to cook, go to the beach and make pretty things. I've done a lot of traveling in my life, but one of my all-time favorite places has to be my grandparent's farm in Michigan. I'm just a tiny bit (ok, majorly) obsessed with taking pictures of my sweet girl. I'm pretty terrible at coming up with things to write about myself so if you want to know something, just ask! Let's be friends!


Kelly Meier from Typically Simple





Hi there! I'm Kelly and I blog over at Typically Simple. Armed with my glue gun and a cup of coffee, I enjoy working on craft and DIY projects during nap-time. I was an elementary school teacher for seven years, and I now stay home with my little guy who is one and a half. I love, love, love to read and my favorite vacation is on a beach somewhere, with my toes in the sand, and a cold drink in my hand! After a busy day of chasing a toddler, I can usually be found perusing Pinterest, watching NCIS, and trying to keep my eyes open past 8 o'clock. 

Kari Byington from Life Pre'Kari'ous



I'm Kari. I am a wife and stay at home mama of two, who lives in leggings (usually covered in paint and saw dust) and laughs at my own jokes. My husband, who's I'm convince has had a beard since birth, was my best friend for years before I even realized I had a crush. No one was more surprised than me! He's the practical one in our marriage. The one who's there to remind me that I can't use spray paint THAT close to the car and to help remove screws that I've stripped. I'm never not crafting or creating. Even in the middle of dinner or dishes I'm usually waiting for a coat of paint to dry.



I hope you give these girls some lovin' and follow some of their feeds! I love seeing what these girls are up to and I can't wait to share some of their talent with you!

Love Note Garland {Crafting Chicks}

Happy hump day everyone! Woo Woo!

I just realized I forgot to tell you to hop on over to the Crafting Chicks to see THIS love note garland I made! It was such a fun quick craft and I adore how it turned out. Head on over to see their amazing safari party they did too! So fun!

Birthday Party Invitations by Tiny Prints

It just so happens that my "baby's" third birthday has come and gone. Whoa. That makes me feel old. His birthday was January 4th. It is the worst. I am so pooped from doing Christmas and New Years that I never really make a big deal out of his birthday. In fact, I am lucky if I even send out an e-vite for his party. And now I have a new born that was just born on the 9th. But this year...I was so ready.

Valentine Trees

Phew! What a wild ride the last few days have been. If you don't follow me on Instagram or FB then you probably didn't know that we added a third little guy to our family. Turner was born on Friday afternoon and we couldn't be happier he is here! (I will do a separate post on him later) All is happy at home now that he has arrived and I am doing great! So, on to the craft, eh?

I actually made these like three weeks before Turner was born so don't think I am like super woman or anything (or...keep thinking that.)

What NOT to Pack in Your Hospital Bag

Hi there babes! Head on over to Positively Oakes blog today to see what I had to say about what NOT to put in your hospital bag when its time to deliver baby.


In case you were wondering, I am about to explode with child. (Yes a very lovely image.) And I am getting induced on Friday if I don't go into labor before then! Woo! Get this baby outta me! This might be (I said, it MIGHT BE) my last post before my little baby break. I think my boys are really tired of watching me do so much blogging work over the last few weeks so I can take some time off. I am ready to just lay low and spend some time with my kiddos!

So...over and out!
