It’s almost Christmas

Well, we all are still here, so now it’s onto the next mass-hysteria crisis that dominates the media news cycle.  Whether it’s Y2k or the fiscal cliff, there will also be something new  for the media to hype up and the rest of us to obsessively tweet about. I am glad it’s Friday and almost … read more

Holiday inspiration and the world is not going to end

Well, today is a day of great anticipation. Not only is everyone anxiously awaiting tomorrow, because it’s the Friday before a long 4 day holiday break, but we are also waiting to see how the world will end for the Mayan Apocalypse. I’m pretty excited about the holiday. The cookies, presents, holiday punch and visiting … read more

Clothespin and Ribbon Advent Calendar

Even though my kid is all grown up, we still put an advent calendar up. Sometimes, I get those chocolate filled ones from Trader Joe’s and Julia eats the chocolates, but usually I make one. This year, I decided to keep things simple. I painted some clothespins with Martha Stewart glitter paint and cut out … read more

There’s never too much glitter!

I’ve been having fun playing with glitter this week. I figured while I was making a mess and had glitter on my face, it made sense to get it out of my system. I’ve been saving these acorns since last year with the intention of glitter-fying them for tree ornaments. Well, color me accomplished.

Glitter Clothespin Ornaments

Last year I made my own handmade snowglobes and as a result I had leftover bottle brush trees and other miniatures that left me wondering what to do with them. Well, I came across a pin to this project and I thought that’s the perfect thing. I also had some off that great Martha glitter … read more

Glammed Up Holiday Houses

Inspired by this post, I made some little cardboard houses for under the tree. All the goods are  either recycled or were gifted to me (excluding a couple pieces of felt I purchased). The great holiday fabrics were sent to me from Creative Thursday and the sequins my friend Mary shared with me. Everything else … read more

DIY Paper Ornaments

Recently, the folks at French General sent me goodies to play with and I was just waiting for a rainy day and some inspiration to get started with them. That happened the other day.  As I have shared, I am on a bent to re-do my tree with all homemade decorations this year. I’m not … read more

Owl Christmas Tree Ornaments from Toilet Paper Tubes!

Last week, I was poking around my friend Kris’ Pinterest page and I cam across a pin that led me to this blog post. I had no idea what it said (it looks like it’s written in Spanish…I took French), but it’s clear that there was cuteness, there were  toilet paper tubes and there were … read more

Christmas fix

For the first time ever in my life, I have made the decision to not decorate for the holidays. I usually spend a lot of time making homemade decorations, cutting out paper snowflakes, putting up a tree and decking all my halls—but not this year. There’s just too much going on in my personal life … read more
