The Cricut Explore and the Cricut Explore Air are the newest generation of Cricut machines from Provocraft.

If you are considering one of these fun machines, check out both models to see which one works best for you.

Finding supplies for your Cricut Explore machine isn’t always easy. While you can find some things at your local craft stores, I feel like I can get better prices on supplies from internet stores, plus everything arrives right at your doorstep. For some supplies like vinyl, I prefer the quality and pricing of other brands of vinyl.

Sewing Machines and Supplies for Tweens and Teens

Sewing Machines and Supplies for Tweens and Teens

Sewing is a great life skill and if your tween or teen is showing interest in learning how to sew, they would love to receive a machine of their own to learn on. I bought my daughter her first machine at age 11 and, with a few classes, she learned how to do lots of fun, simple projects on her own. There are a lot of machines that are marketed to kids and while they are affordable, most break easily and are a waste of money. There are a few highly-reviewed starter machines that are under $100 and a several that are just over $100, with a variety of great features. We found some great solid machines that will make learning to sew easy and fun, not frustrating. There are also lots of great sewing supplies that your tween or teen will love so they can start this fun new hobby.

My daughter started off with classes at our local Joann fabrics store.  They offer sales on their classes and you will receive a list of supplies, plus one of their coupons. One of her first projects was a pillowcase and they she branched out to a simple pair of PJ shorts, a pair of PJ pants, an apron and more. You can also check out if your local community center has classes as well. If your sewer prefers to venture out on their own, one of our best finds was the simple sewing patterns offered at Walmart stores, in the fabric department. They offer a variety of beginner patterns for just $1-3. There are patterns for purses, bags simple clothing, doll clothing and more. My daughter loves to save her allowance money to fund her next project and I love that she is learning a new life skill. Sewing projects are perfect for staying busy on weekends and over Summer break.  [Read more…]

Stylish Easter Clothes for Boys and Where to Buy Them

Cool Clothes for Boys – Easter

I’m always looking for stylish Easter clothes for boys as I have two boys to dress for the holidays. Plaid, pastels and brights are on trend for boys Easter attire this year. As far as pants, flat-front chinos will give you that dressy look, but will still be cool. My oldest son loves wearing jeans and I think jeans with a nice shirt and vest is a nice compromise for a casual Easter. I also love all of the fun ties, modern bow ties and blazers offered this year for boys. Check out some great looks that we have chosen for babies, toddler boys, young boys and tween boys for Easter.
