DIY Hand Lettered Snow Days Tee + Free Cut File

Today's post is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl and contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  It's almost Christmas!!!  I seriously cannot believe that the Christmas holiday is upon us.  I would say that I've been dreaming of a white Christmas, but I live in South Carolina, and normally I can't even wear a sweater on Christmas without, well, sweating.  But when we do get a snow day in January or February, it is GLORIOUS!  With that thought in mind, I created a brand new hand-lettered design that I put on a tee.  Today I've teamed up with Expressions Vinyl to bring you the tutorial, and, of course, I'm sharing the FREE cut file with you so that you can make your own.
DIY Hand-Lettered Snow Days Tee + Free Cut File
As a teacher, there's nothing like waking up to a pre-recorded message that school has been cancelled due to SNOW!  And, yes, it is true that everything shuts down in the South if we get even an inch of snow, so it's so fun to snuggle beside a fire inside and watch those lovely white flakes fall outside and make everything beautiful.  As you can tell, snow days are my favorite, so I thought it would be fun to have a t-shirt to celebrate that.  If you're like me and love snow days, you can make yourself a tee in no time following the tutorial below.  Let's get started!

My Five Favorite Drugstore Makeup Products

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  I feel like it's been forever since I posted something new here!  If you follow me on Instagram, you know that at the end of October, my husband and I adopted a beautiful baby boy, so my life recently has been filled with diaper changes, feedings, and trying to get sleep when possible.  I haven't had much time for being creative, but I'm starting to somewhat get the hang of things, and I hope to have some new creative tutorials coming in the near future.  Besides being creative, I also LOVE makeup, and I love to share products I like with people over on Instagram.  I recently did a poll asking if people would like me to write a post about my favorite drugstore makeup products, and the answer was YES.  That's what today's post is all about: my five favorite drugstore makeup products!
My 5 Favorite Drugstore Makeup Products
I'm going to write about each product and why I love it.  I should mention before I get started that every face and skin type is different, so something I love might not necessarily work for you, so please don't get angry with me if you try a product and it just doesn't work for you.  When I talk about the products, I'm going to link to them using affiliate links.  If you choose to purchase a product through my link, a small part of the purchase price will go toward helping to support my blog at no extra cost to you.  (Thanks!)  But you can find the products in stores like Walmart, Target, and CVS too, so shop wherever you like.  Okay...on to the products!

DIY Livin' on Prayer + Pumpkin Spice Tee

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  I am so excited that we FINALLY had some fall weather this week in SC.  The leaves are changing colors, and I actually had to wear a jacket to school two mornings in a row.  In honor of these fall milestones, I thought I'd share my brand new tee with you that I created using a FREE cut file I shared on the blog last year.

When fall rolls around, we all know that it's the beginning of pumpkin spice season, right?

DIY Glamorous Halloween T-Shirt + Free Cut File

This post contains affiliate links and is sponsored by Expressions Vinyl.
Hey, y'all! Happy fall! In the South where I live, the beginning of fall doesn't mean much because we are normally still having summertime temperatures, but it does signal that it's socially acceptable to start decorating with pumpkins and preparing for fun fall holidays like Halloween.  Today, I am teaming up with Expressions Vinyl to share an awesome Halloween project with you.  I'm showing you how to make a glamorous, sparkly, not-so-spooky Halloween t-shirt, and, of course, I'm giving you the free cut file so that you can make your own!
DIY Glamorous Halloween T-Shirt
Way back in 2012 when I was just a baby blogger, I had an idea for a free Halloween printable: "Ghoul, you look boo-tiful!" I created and shared the printable on the blog with some not-so-fabulous photos, and while the post is nowhere near one of my favorites, I still love the saying.  So when I decided to create a post for Halloween, I thought it would be fun to bring back that saying on a t-shirt.  I created a fun design, and used my Silhouette Cameo and vinyl from Expressions Vinyl to bring my design to life.  It was so easy! You can make one for yourself in no time following the tutorial below.

My New Favorite Accessories

This post contains affiliate links and a brand ambassador discount code.  Thanks for supporting Pitter & Glink!
Hey, y'all!  If you have followed me for a while via social media or my blog, you probably know that I'm a huge fan of pretty, girly things.  Give me all the sparkly accessories and all the cute clothes!!!  And because I know there are a lot of girly girls like me out there, I love sharing my favorite clothes and accessories, whether they're DIY or store-bought.  I normally just share the store-bought stuff on Instagram, but today on the blog I want to share with you my new favorite jewelry brand. I love this brand so much that I've teamed up with them as a brand ambassador.  The brand is Lucy's Inspired, and I think y'all are going to love them as much as I do!  (And if you do, you can get 20% off your purchase by using the code BETHANY20!)
Lucy's Inspired Inspire to Give Necklace
I'm really not even sure how I stumbled upon Lucy's Inspired.  I believe I just happened to see a post from them on Instagram.  I thought their necklaces were beautiful, so I started following them and then realized they were looking for brand ambassadors.  I loved the fact that as a brand ambassador I could get some of their jewelry at a discount and that I could get a discount code for y'all too, so I signed up.  I spent hours one night deciding what necklaces I would order first and finally decided on three.

Free Printable Scripture Verse Journaling Cards

Hey, y'all!  If you haven't noticed yet, I LOVE making freebies to share with y'all.  Sometimes I create things I think you'll like, and sometimes I create things for myself that I share with y'all.  Today's freebie falls into the latter category.  I'm sharing some FREE printable Bible verse cards with you!
Free Printable Scripture Verse Cards
One of the last Bible studies I did was The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer.  The study is really great; I highly recommend it.  One of my main takeaways from the study is that being in God's Word daily and meditating on His Word changes our hearts, minds, and lives.  I try to read my Bible daily, although sometimes I fail. But one thing that I haven't done in years is memorize scripture.
