Free SVG files from Chicfetti!

A few months ago, I finally finished saving up and bought an older model Cricut (cue the happy dance!). I’ve had so much fun with it, and I’ve been using the Sure-Cuts-A-Lot software to work on personal projects, like Christmas tags & decals. I’ve been looking online for sites with free svg files, and today I want to share with you one of my favorites.
Chicfetti, a website dedicated to sharing creative & chic crafty ideas, has a section with 74 free svg files! (As well as a pretty great section with free printables for almost every occasion) It’s been one of my favorite websites for svg files that I’ve found so far, and I really like the variety they have available. Halloween, Christmas, birthdays & more events have a variety of SVG files available.
So, make sure to check out Chicfetti and their free svg files; and don’t forget to show them some love for offering such great freebies! 
Until next time, stay crafty!

Rainy day recipe…

I wish I could say it’s bright and sunny here, but it’s been raining since last night. All. Day. Long. Goodness! I had to run out in the rain to bring in my newly-potted marigolds so they wouldn’t “drown”.

Rainy days like today are perfect for one pot comfort meals though. Soups, casseroles, hot name it. One of my favorite things to make when it’s raining is potato soup.

Now, potato soup can take on a myriad of flavors, depending on what you put into it. Some like it cheesy, some like it pureed, and some like it any way they can get it. (That would be me!) My husband’s favorite version is creamy, with chunks of potato, bits of bacon, and plenty of cheese…which is a lot like this classic recipe from Kraft, featured here. 

Bacon & Baked Potato Soup recipe

It’s easy enough for a quick weeknight dinner, and a lot of the prep can be done in advance! Best of all, it’s kid-friendly 🙂

So, be sure to check out Kraft’s Bacon and Baked Potato Soup recipe for a great, easy classic 🙂

Until next time..stay crafty!
