I know I share DIY projects but I wanted to share that I’ve listed a few items on my Etsy Shop, Minature Moments
The items that I have listed in my shop are items that I’ve made while making posts for this blog or TikTok. I love crafting and it’s honestly just an “mom escape” for me. I love using my Addi-Express and my Silhouette Cameo that it got to the point I had no one else to gift my items to so I decided to list the items on an Etsy Shop.
You can click here to visit my shop. Here’s a peek at one of the beanies listed in my shop.
Thanks all for following along. I’ll try my best to post more DIY tutorials in the near future!
Today I’m making a friend a baby onesie. They’re not finding out the gender so I’m going to be making my “New to the Crew” onesie for them.
Things you’ll Need:
Cutting machine – I use Silhouette Cameo 3
Heat Transfer Vinyl – I use Siser brand but I also like Cricut
Weeding tool or tweezers
Step 1: create your design – I already have my design created and saved into my silhouette library but I’m going to make some slight changes to the font style.
Step 2: size your design according to your garment. I’m using a 0-3 month size onesie so I’ll make my design no larger than 5×5 inches.
Step 3: mirror your design. This is the most important step! If you don’t mirror your design it’ll be backwards when you go to press it onto your garment.
Step 4: send to cut. Change your cut settings based on your material and blade. I’m using black heat transfer vinyl so I’m going to use “heat transfer, smooth”, blade 3, force 8, speed 8. My blade is extremely dull which is why I changed my blade and force setting. I suggest doing a test cut before doing your entire design.
Step 5: weed your design. You’re going to remove all the excess vinyl material that you do not want on your design.
Step 6: place design on garment.
If Using a Heat Press: set temperate and time based on the vinyl brand you’re using. I’m using Siser so I set my Cricut EasyPress 2 to 305 degrees for 15 seconds. Add parchment paper on top of your design then apply your heat press.
If Using a Home Iron: set it to cotton without water. Apply the iron directly onto the design, constantly moving your iron. Irons don’t equally distribute heat so constantly moving the iron will help ensure all parts of your design are getting heat. Apply the iron in small circular motions for 15-30 seconds. Heat time varies depending on your iron. Carefully pull up the clear carrier sheet to make sure the design is adhered to the garment. If it’s not, just keep apply your iron in small circular. Options until nothing sticks to the clear carrier sheet.
It’s been a crazy year for Flight Attendants regardless of which company you’re working for. Policies have changed, flight loads have lightened, limited routes and more. Because of all these changes and my personal and family lifestyle, I’ve made the decision to resign from my position as flight attendant.
This was not an easy choice and it’s honestly been something I’ve been pondering before the pandemic even hit. I loved my job but ultimately it came down to wanting to stay home and care for my children more.
After 8 years of working for my airline I feel I’ve visited many awesome places and made lots of new friends so I don’t feel any regret or remorse giving up my career to focus on my family. Sometimes people just outgrow their current position/situation and want to go in a different direction. For me that’s my children.
Now just because I no longer have flight benefits doesn’t mean I won’t be sharing travel tips, tricks, and cool destinations. As a family we still plan on doing fun destination vacations (once the pandemic is more under control) but for now we’re going to be playing tourist in our new state of Florida.
I want to say good luck and stay positive to all my fellow flight attendants and travel enthusiasts who come across my blog. This pandemic won’t last forever and the world of travel that we’re use to will soon return. I’ll miss you all but I’ll see you 34,000ft above me from the ground!
When I was planning our cross country move which required air travel I wanted something to make my children more comfortable. I came across the Koala Kloud Inflatable Footrest and decided to give it a try.
I bought two (one for each kid) but I ended up only using one. Each cost approximately
We made it! And it was definitely quite the trip. Let’s start with my travel experience with the kids…
A few days before our flight I started to get really stressed about traveling by myself with two kids. Thankfully my flight wasn’t full because I ended up buying my mom a ticket and she traveled with us and stayed in Florida for 10 days to help us get settled. Thankful she was with us because my husbands trip didn’t turn out as planned. More to come on that.
Toddler backpack with the following: no mess coloring book and markers, 3 favorite non-noisy toys, kindle, headphones
Now you’re probably thinking ‘what about a stroller?’ well I’m actually bringing a wagon! We have this wagon from Costco and as long as the wagon folds it can be checked at the gate before boarding the plane. This is going to make traveling (hopefully) 10x easier with both kids.
