Dress Up Reindeer Wall Decals

Make your holiday decor easy and fun with these INteractive Dress Up Reindeer Wall Decals!

Want to know my dirty little secret?  It’s something that you may find surprising, but here it is:  I don’t enjoy decorating my Christmas tree.  My tree is not magazine worthy.  I have only put about 12 ornaments on the tree.  I ran out of mesh ribbon about 2/3′s of the way around the tree, and couldn’t find anymore.  It is now falling off.  There are two boxes of ornaments sitting on the floor by the tree.  They’ve been there {Read More}

Holiday Entertaining Must Haves from

This post is brought to you by Wayfair.  All opinions and ideas are my own. I love entertaining and throwing parties or celebrations – especially during the Christmas season.  While I usually get one or two new pieces for every party (much to my husband’s objections, as party supplies and servingware are beginning to take over our house, not to speak for the kitchen!), there are a few pieces that are essentials – the staples, if you will.  To me, {Read More}

DIY Embossed Napkins

Embossed Napkins are a great 5 minute project to jazz up your next party!

A while ago, I was looking for polka dot napkins for a party, but I couldn’t find them in the right colour.  That’s when I thought of using my Evolution and embossing some plain napkins to make them polka dotted – or more! It was so quick and easy to jazz up these plain, $1 napkins.  All you need are the embossing folders and napkins.  I used Spotted and Stripe from We R Memory Keepers. To emboss the napkins, simply {Read More}

Tips for Hosting A Fun Arts and Crafts Afternoon


Doing anything with preschoolers and kindergartners can be a chore – but hosting an arts and crafts afternoon for a group of them?  Well, that could be a recipe for disaster.  Never fear though, we just hosted a super fun “crafternoon” (as I like to call it) for my youngest daughter and four of her friends, and I can’t wait to share some of the details with you! The theme for the crafternoon was inspired by the new Rice Krispie {Read More}

Cricut vs Silhouette: Why the Cricut Explore is Winning (+ Black Friday Deals to help you bring one home this Christmas!)

Ever since the Cricut Explore was released in January of this year, there has been a lot of back and forth between crafters, bloggers, and almost everyone else about which was now better – the perpetual, age old Cricut vs Silhouette debate. For years, Silhouette had won many hearts, but the Explore positioned Cricut for a comeback. Personally, I own both machines, and take it from me: My silhouette has been packed away in storage since the day I received {Read More}

This week, I was so excited to have my sister come visit.  She lives half a country away, so we only get to visit with each other for a day or two a year.  Since she is a photographer, I always seize the moment and have her do our family photos for our Christmas cards.  As she was driving in, she mentioned how it was too bad  that I didn’t make a banner to use in the photos.  It was {Read More}
