Every holiday seems to be inundated with so many sweets! It seems like after every holiday we end up with bags of candy that we donate, because it’s far more than any of us will ever eat. So this year for Valentine’s Day I wanted to find something the kids could give that was personal, but that wasn’t a sweet… Read More

Holidays are so much fun to me! I love decorating for each one and making special treats and giving cute little gifts. Realistically, I don’t always have a lot of time to make things as over the top as I’d like, so I have to find smart ways to work around that. This year for Valentine’s Day I made *THE*… Read More
I love holidays. Letting my kids pick out the theme of their Valentine box and making Valentines to give to their friends is something I look forward to each year! I usually end up creating something just for my kids, so their vision can be executed well, and I decided that if I’m already designing them, I may as well… Read More
Finding the perfect Valentine can be difficult for kids who have very specific ideas in their heads when going to the store. My oldest daughter is very much like me in that sense. She gets in her head what she wants as a gift, or for her birthday parties, and she’s pretty dead set on that’s what she needs. Lucky… Read More

Oreos are amazing. I think we can all agree on this fact. So it’s safe to say that Oreos would make a great gift for just about anyone. But, giving a package of Oreos to someone for Christmas can seem un-inspired and not very personal. So instead you can make these DIY Elf Leg Oreos! The best thing about these is… Read More
Recently we went and saw The Nutcracker and The Four Realms in theaters. It was a BEAUTIFUL film full of gorgeous imagery and amazing dancing, and you should go see it! After we saw it, I knew I wanted to put something special on my Christmas tree this year as a little nod to the movie, so I made this Ballerina Ornament…. Read More
I love making my own decor (as you can see from my site) and I REALLY love making my own Christmas decor. This adorable Elf Christmas Box was a breeze to make, and I’m in love with how it turned out! I made this Elf Christmas Box after seeing similar ones at a Christmas shop in Tennessee. Those boxes sold for $75… Read More
Every Christmas I try to make sure my kids know that Christmas is more about giving to others than it is receiving. Just like all of you, I try to make sure my kids (and myself!) are focusing the joy of Christmas and spreading the love of Jesus (the reason for the season!), but that can be tough with all… Read More
How The Grinch Stole Christmas is one of our favorite Christmas movies. I have always loved the color and extravagance of Whoville and love the whimsy and color it brings to Christmas decor. When I was making these Grinch Trees, I just let myself paint them fun colors keeping in mind that childlike whimsy and I’m in love with how they… Read More
Doilies are beautiful! The work that goes into them is so time-consuming and the details that are in some of them are stunning! I don’t have the patience to make them, but you can always find them at thrift stores, yard sales, and antique stores for super cheap. I found some really cute Doily Ornaments at Hobby Lobby this year that… Read More
