Valentine’s day is not something I typically decorate for. It’s one of those holidays that sneaks up on me, and before I know it it’s over with. This year especially, since it seems we’ve all been sick since ohhh….the beginning of December. We have had colds, stomach bugs, sore throats, giant splinters that keep people from walking, I mean really… this year has been ridiculous.

But no worries, all opinions are my own! : ) #handmadeholidays We have had so much fun this year for Christmas baking tons of cookies and of course a little elf on the shelf action. I realized this recently when my kids asked me what kind of cookies Santa eats that we have
Have you started wrapping presents? I’ve wrapped two and that’s what I’m posting about today : ) I should probably get busy and wrap the rest before Christmas ; ) It’s not that I don’t love wrapping presents… it might actually be one of my favorite parts about Christmas, but seriously… I’m running pretty low on time without the kids where I’m not so exhausted
This is a sponsored post written by me for Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart. All opinions are my own :) Over the last few weeks I have been sharing my Christmas Decor with you. Now it’s time to start thinking presents. Maybe you’ve already finished your shopping and wrapped them all.. or if you are like me you are just getting started. Either way
I am linking my home tour up to the Holiday House Walk Link Party with Jennifer Rizzo Good Morning all! I hope you are having a fantastic December morning! I had these intentions of showing you my full house tour, but I have been defeated by the little people in my house. Here is the reality. I have a weeks worth of dirty clothes piled
I’m almost done with my Christmas decorations this year and I’m so ready to check it off my list. I always try to finish everything up at the very first of December so I can sit back and enjoy my family. We did have fun with this tree though. I set my mama fears aside and let my kids use a needle to make this homemade
I hope everyone is recovering quickly from Thanksgiving! I can’t believe it has already come and gone. Does it feel like it flies by tos fast for anyone else? ….especially after all that cooking. At least it got me out of cooking all weekend, I can live with that! But it has definitely come and it has gone, so you know what that means right?
When I shared my Christmas Mantel with you a few weeks ago I was most excited about this Joy Sign. It was SO much fun to build and I can’t wait to share this tutorial with you. It was by far the thing I was asked about the most! So let’s get building! Hopefully it’s not as cold outside for you as it is for
Today is day 12. The last day of the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments. I’d like to say that I saved my best for last, but to be honest, I completely changed my ornament at the last minute. Linda, from It All Started With Paint is the lovely lady who put all this together and I emailed her and asked if I could give her
Disclosure: Michael’s provided me with a gift card to purchase some of the supplies for the ornaments used in this series. It’s Day 11. This one was so fun to make! I’ll admit, I wasn’t very in to the whole deer head thing. Maybe because I grew up in the south and everyone wants a deer head hanging on their wall… the real kind. Some
Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite times of year, but let’s be honest…. it can get expensive! I am always looking to pick things up at thrift stores or garage sales. It’s a pretty bitter subject with my husband to talk about all the things we have dragged across the country because I’m “going to use that one day”. On the bright side of
Good morning everyone! As we round out the end of this series I have yet another wood slice ornament for you : ) This one is a little different, but I am still burning things ; ). I created this little Banner Wood Slice Noel Ornament. I used some different wood slices for this one. These are from the craft store and are a little
Do you ever make something and love it so much that you want to use it over and over again? I made these stockings last year (and never posted about them). I ran out of time and the last thing anyone wants to see in January is another Christmas Tutorial right? This year I made it in time : ) I changed them up a
It’s Day 9. Guys… I am almost done! I have to be honest, these last few days have been rough for me to write about. I feel like I have used up all my words and I’m running pretty dry. I’ve never really considered myself a writer. When I write my blog posts I just type it out like I would tell you if you were
