Okay guys. I am crazy excited about today’s post! I have teamed up with 110 other amazing bloggers to create the ULTIMATE Red, White and Blue Roundup! Yeah. You read that right. 110 new red, white and blue ideas. How awesome is that!? We have all created our very own patriotic idea to share with everyone today! Wanna see mine??
Our newly painted front door got a little partner in
crime prettiness! You know I have a serious weakness for wreaths (as evidenced here, here, here, here, here, and here.) Just the other day I realized that I haven’t created one in more than a year!! What!? What’s wrong with me? Have I been sick? Did my hands fall off? Nope. Not since the last time I checked. I just bought a house and have been putting my efforts into making our house a home. Silly me. Where are my priorities?? 😉 But I’ve been missing my wreath-making so I spent about an hour creating this little beauty. Check out my adorable Patriotic Pinwheel Wreath!
Holy moly, batman. Christmas is in 2 days. Can you even stand it!? Are you ready? The hubs and I are currently in Chicago visiting with family (and snuggling my newborn nephew!) and enjoying all the festivities. And what are Christmas festivities without some delicious treats? I’m rounding up some of my favorite holiday treats just in time for you to whip up for your family’s celebrations! Be warned… you may start drooling!
We are on our way to Chicago today to visit family for the holidays. So rather than scrambling to write a post in the midst of my mad dash to pack, do laundry, and clean the past few days, I thought I would share a few DIY oldies but goodies that I shared last Christmas. Christmas is just a week away but all 8 of these DIY holiday ideas are so simple that you can have them done in no time! Continue reading
Oh my goodness, peeps. I swear, each time I write up a post I promise myself (and you guys!) that I am going to write more often. But then I walk away from the computer and life takes over. Over the past few weeks we had our water heater explode, leaving water all over our basement. Then we had to replace our dishwasher. And just this past week the stove went out. Awesome. When it rains, it pours… right? So now I promise to try to write as much as I would like. Deal??
In the midst of all the craziness recently, I have managed to crank out 1 Christmas project. That’s right… ONE! I think I had about 15 planned. Stupid life. Always in the way of my crafting fun. 😉 I even wanted to do a winter home tour but you’ll be lucky if you see a picture of our tree. But seriously… I kinda love this project. Partially because it cost me $0 and partially because it looks way better than I could have hoped. So I guess if I was only going to get one thing done, I’m glad it was these adorable and incredibly easy Rustic Paint Stick Stars.
Just wanted to drop in and let you all know that I’m sharing my monthly post over on I Heart Naptime today! I’m sharing this great tutorial for these fantastic Spider Suckers just in time for Halloween! So go check them out!
