If you're like me, you love blogging, and I blog as a hobby. However, I decided to add a few ads to my sidebar and to write sponsored posts every now and then to earn extra money to support my crafting habit! Although I have a large yarn stash, you can never have enough yarn (or fabric), and so the money I earn from blogging helps to fund my crafting projects. If you're interested in earning a few extra bucks whether it's to fund your crafting projects or to earn cash for Christmas gifts, I have some recommendations for affiliate programs.

Welcome to Submarine Sunday Aboard the USS Crafty!  Hi y'all! I hope you're having a great weekend.

Anchors Aweigh Nautical Burlap Wreath

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Saturday, May 21, 2016 Categories: , ,
Since my son's room has a nautical theme, I decided to create a nautical themed wreath for his bedroom door. I recently found some burlap with red and blue anchors, and I bought a bunch of it. I used some last week to create a Patriotic Burlap Wreath for our front door, and today I used the rest to create this nautical wreath for my baby boy.

Welcome to Submarine Sunday Aboard the USS Crafty!  Hi y'all! I hope you're having a great weekend. I've been a very busy crafter lately! I just finished making a patriotic wreath a few minutes ago. I realized that Memorial Day is just around the corner, and I don't like to dig out my Patriotic Feather Wreath anymore; it gets feathers EVERYWHERE! So today I made one with burlap. I'll be making another burlap wreath for my son's bedroom door soon. I can also finally share the Crossover Flounce Dress I made for my daughter a couple months ago. I must admit that it's one of my favorite sewing creations! So what have you been up to? I can't wait to see what you link up below!

I realized today that Memorial Day is just around the corner, so I put together a patriotic wreath using some burlap I picked up at the store a while ago. This is my first time making a burlap wreath like this. I've made a burlap rag wreath which I love, so I was really looking forward to giving this type of burlap wreath a try.

Well, a couple months ago, I tested another fabulous pattern for Call Ajaire called the Crossover Flounce Dress. My daughter and I both LOVE this dress! I love the crossover layered skirt and the fact that it's reversible, so it's two dresses in one!

Meatloaf Muffins

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Thursday, May 12, 2016 Categories: ,
I often feel like I cook the same meals over and over. So tonight, I decided to add a twist to my usual meatloaf. I'm calling them meatloaf muffins, but they look more like meatloaf cupcakes since they're topped with ketchup and mashed potatoes. I thought about topping them with mashed potatoes and gravy (I'll try that next time).

Welcome to Submarine Sunday Aboard the USS Crafty! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers! My daughter's preschool class hosted a Mother's Day Tea, and we had cookies, cinnamon swirl cakes, and tea, of course! The children made hats for us to wear, cards, necklaces, and placemats with funny info about us moms. It was a fun event. I look forward to seeing what my family has in store for me today. Anyhoo... What crafty creations have you been working on? I can't wait to see what you link up below!!!

Burlap Christmas Mug Rugs (Handmade Christmas)

Posted by Navy Wifey Peters | Saturday, May 07, 2016 Categories: , , ,
I enjoy making handmade gifts, especially for Christmas. But I usually every December I find myself scrambling to hurry up and finish handmade Christmas gifts for friends and family. So this year, I've joined some really crafty bloggers for the Handmade Christmas Blog Hop, and each month we will share a new gift idea with you. With our blog hop, each member is making their own version of the handmade gift of the month. So you'll have multiple sources of inspiration for the same gift idea. This month I'm sharing a set of Burlap Christmas Mug Rugs. As an avid coffee drinker, I like having cute mug rugs for my coffee mugs to rest on. I've made a few mug rugs. Some I keep, and some I gift to my mother who is also an avid coffee drinker.

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!!
