 Welcome crafty friend! It's time to kick your Cricut fears to the curb and start creating stencils and signs without feeling afraid to get started... Let's be honest, crafting and creating is your happy place and it SHOULD be fun and simple


NOT a stressful, whirlwind race, tripping on every hurdle to Master everything about your machine at once.


Yeah, everywhere you turn on the "interwebs" is telling you to become a Cricut master in a snap of a finger but my friend, trust me when I say...Less Is More.

If so, you are in the right place and you are NOT ALONE!

I love teaching crafty ladies like you how to make custom stencils with a Cricut because I know you want to get straight to creating.

  • I wasted so much time and money on the wrong materials, and tutorials that left out important steps. I knew there had to be an easier way. So, I created the 5 step method that I've used to teach hundreds of women how to start creating and they are crossing Cricut decor projects off their lists inside the DIY Decor Makers Membership group every day.
  • It IS POSSIBLE to create your first stenciled project in 5 days or less with a Cricut.You'll just need to stay focused on really learning this ONE type of project instead of trying to "learn it all". 
  • If design space scares you, don't worry,I know tech is scary.  I'd still have a flip phone if it wasn't for my tech savvy husband lol. You just need tutorials that walk you through each step and a place to ask questions along the way.  
  • Learning the Cricut isn't hard, there's just a lot of pieces.  If you know where to focus and how to start, the pieces can easily be put together so you can start creating right away with confidence and MORE JOY. 

Meet Melody

🥰She is a longtime member of my creative Cricut Stencil and Sign making community, The DIY Decor Makers membership.

A few years ago she  as afraid to use her Cricut.  Fast forward to today and she has created hundreds of stunning signs, door hangers and porch leaners!  

But...It all started with learning the basics first, slowing down so she could enjoy the process, and remembering that she didn't need to waste time trying to piece it all together on her own. 

“I have always enjoyed creating and decided to start a small business , Polished Timbers, after retiring from 30 years of teaching! I thought a Cricut would be a great addition but had no idea where to begin and was a little scared!

Then I found Reta and the DIY Divas! It has been the perfect place for me to learned to create with my Cricut, develop friendships, find support, and stretch my Creativity!” -Melody
