  • Submarine Sunday #166

    Welcome to Submarine Sunday Aboard the USS Crafty! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! I had my first yard sale yesterday, and I'd say it was successful! I had a ton of baby and toddler clothes...

  • Spring Driftwood Wreath

    Since spring has sprung, I've been spring cleaning, redecorating, and decluttering. In fact, this weekend I will have my first ever yard sale! I'm nervous. I hope people show up and buy everything! I cleared out both my kiddos' closets, so 99% of what I'm selling is baby clothes...

  • Mother's Day Gift Guide

    As a mother of two young kiddos, Mother's Day is a special day for me. And since I've read The Five Love Languages (Military Edition), I know that my love language is gifts. I like to give gifts, and I really enjoy receiving gifts. So gifts are very important to me...

    In honor of Earth Day, some of my bloggy friends and I decided to do some Earth Day Crafting and host a Earth Day Blog Hop/Linky where we and others can share our upcycling projects. I decided to do a couple denim upcycle projects. One of my goals for this year is to do more upcycling...

  • USS Crafty Craft Room Sign

    A few months ago, I thought it would be nice to have a wreath or a sign on my craft room door indicating that it was my craft room... not a closet! Last year, my husband and I converted the large upstairs closet into my craft room....

  • Denim Mist Knitted Scarf

    I've been crocheting for about 14 years, but I recently decided to take a knitting class. I now know how to cast on, knit, purl, and cast off. I find knitting fun, but it takes longer than crocheting! In the time it took me to knit this scarf, I could have crocheted three! Well, maybe it's because I'm a knitting newbie...

Welcome to Submarine Sunday Aboard the USS Crafty! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! I had my first yard sale yesterday, and I'd say it was successful! I had a ton of baby and toddler clothes and baby gear. I still have some clothes left, so I'll probably post those on Ebay.  Although I've been super busy preparing for my yard sale, I managed to complete an easy crafting project for the Celebrate May Blog Hop. So what have you been working on?  I look forward to seeing what you link up!!

As a mother of two young kiddos, Mother's Day is a special day for me. And since I've read The Five Love Languages (Military Edition), I know that my love language is gifts. I like to give gifts, and I really enjoy receiving gifts. So gifts are very important to me, and at ModCloth, you can easily find the perfect gift for the special mommy in your life. So here's my Mother's Day gift guide of wonderful items available at ModCloth.

Q&A A DAY FOR MOMS 5 YEAR JOURNAL
Many ladies/moms love journals. The Q&A a Day for Moms journal is awesomely wonderful because it poses a new question each day of the year and ample space for you to answer it four more times as your family grows! This is such a great memory book, and I'm so glad I actually received my copy a couple days ago! I look forward to writing in it!

VOW TO WOW NECKLACE
 
When it comes to gifts, you really can't go wrong with jewelry! The Vow to Wow Necklace would be a beautiful gift for the special mom in your life. It comes in different shades like Carnation (pictured above), Mist, Blush, and Magenta. I love all four color combinations. I love the soft pinks on the flowers of the carnation and blush necklaces. The mist necklace features shades of gray, purple, and white, which are also stunning. And the magenta necklace would provide a great pop of color to brighten up any outfit. You can't go wrong with either of these necklaces. They're gorgeous!

CADDY-DO ATTITUDE ORGANIZER
This Caddy-Do Attitude Organizer appeals to the crafter in me. I'd use it to store crochet hooks, knitting needles, stitch markers, and more! 

CHIRPS AND DIP COLLAR PIN

The Chirps and Dip Collar Pin is so cute and unique, vintage-inspired, and the perfect accessory. I just love the pastels colors on these birdies! 


MEDIUM FORMAT MEMORY TUNIC
Like many women/moms, I love to shop, but I often find myself buying more clothes for the kids than I do for myself, and I end up living in yoga pants and hoodies. So it's nice to get a lovely new tunic or dress every now and then. I just love the Medium Format Memory Tunic in this Southwestern print. The print has the tribal vibe that I love, and it is also available in four other prints.

DEEP TEA DIVER INFUSER
As a tea drinker and navy wife, I find this little Deep Tea Diver Infuser amusing! I am a lover of all things nautical, so if the mom in your life loves nautical things and drinks tea, you should definitely consider getting this for her.

GIRL MEETS VOYAGE TRAVEL WALLET
I love this wallet, and I believe you can never have too many wallets! The Girl Meets Voyage Travel Wallet is perfect for holding all your cards, currency, passport, paperwork, and a pen tucked under this vegan faux-leather wallet’s snapped strap. 

MODCLOTH GIFT CERTIFICATE
If you're still unsure about what to buy as a Mother's Day Gift, grab a ModCloth Gift Certificate. It is the perfect gift! You can NEVER go wrong with a gift card, especially a ModCloth gift card. Happy Shopping!

Celebrate May: Spring Driftwood Wreath

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Saturday, April 30, 2016 Categories: ,
Since spring has sprung, I've been spring cleaning, redecorating, and decluttering. In fact, this weekend I will have my first ever yard sale! I'm nervous. I hope people show up and buy everything! I cleared out both my kiddos' closets, so 99% of what I'm selling is baby clothes, toddler clothes, and baby gear. Since I've been busy with the house, I feel like I haven't been crafting as much as I'd like, but I was able to sneak in a quick project tonight around midnight.... So since I've been decluttering and redecorating, I decided to give our master bathroom a more colorful look that's perfect for spring.

What Makes Tuft & Needle Innovative and Unique?

Over-priced, over-complicated mattresses have been the standard. Until now. Tuft & Needle is an innovative and unique mattress company that offers the highest rated mattress in the world. Yes, the world! They proudly support American manufacturing, and each mattress is built with passion and sold at a fair price. Tuft & Needle cut out the middleman, so they can offer a great quality product at a fair price (now that's really unique!). They believe in cutting cost, not corners.

Submarine Sunday #165

Welcome to Submarine Sunday Aboard the USS Crafty! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! This weekend I plan to organize my bedroom closet. Wish me luck! I hope I don't get lost in there! I have way too many clothes that I've been holding on to. I plan to sort through them and decide which clothes I actually wear, which need to be donated, and which can be upcycled and made into something new for the kiddos. Speaking of upcycling... Since yesterday was Earth Day, I shared a couple upcycled denim crafts for the Earth Day Blog Hop. I turned a pair of my husband's old jeans into a pair of cute Upcycled Denim Toddler Shorts for our son, and I used some denim scraps from several pairs of jeans to create an Upcycled Denim Owl Pillow for the kids' playroom. So what have you been working on?  I look forward to seeing what you link up!!

Earth Day Craft Blog Hop: Denim Shorts Upcycle

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Thursday, April 21, 2016 Categories: , , ,

In honor of Earth Day, some of my bloggy friends and I decided to do some Earth Day Crafting and host a Earth Day Blog Hop/Linky where we and others can share our upcycling projects. I decided to do a couple denim upcycle projects. One of my goals for this year is to do more upcycling. While sewing, I watched a documentary on Netflix called The True Cost.  The True Cost is about the clothing we wear, the people who make it, and the impact our clothing is having on the world. Did you know that the fashion industry is the #2 most polluting industry on Earth second only to the oil industry?!?!

USS Crafty Craft Room Sign

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Sunday, April 17, 2016 Categories: ,
A few months ago, I thought it would be nice to have a wreath or a sign on my craft room door indicating that it was my craft room... not a closet! Last year, my husband and I converted the large upstairs closet into my craft room. Whenever I go in there, my daughter says, "Mommy, are you going in your closet?" So, I finally got around to making a sign for my craft room door. To make this sign, I actually revamped a craft project from three years ago.

Submarine Sunday #163

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Sunday, April 10, 2016 Categories:
Welcome to Submarine Sunday Aboard the USS Crafty! I hope you're having a great day and are ready to start a new week! It seems that I have too many WIPs, and nothing's getting finished! Well, my temperature blanket is a year long WIP. I started a crochet cloud pillow last week, and I thought it would be a quick project, but I think the pattern makes a pillow that's bigger than I expected! I also started on a project from Twinkie Chan's new book Crocheted Abode A La Mode. So what have you been working on? I can't wait to see what you link up, but first, check out this week's amazing featured recipe. I look forward to seeing what you link up!!
