Simple DIY Christmas Decor – Burlap and Glitter

Well last weekend was eventful in our house, as I’m sure it was in lots of yours too.  After a couple days of food and family, we got the house all decked out for Christmas.  It is one of my favorite family activities of the year, and the kids love everything about it too!  This year I added a few new Christmas decorations that I made myself with a few simple, and inexpensive supplies.   This one includes a scrap piece of burlap, some red craft paint, glitter, and a thrifted embroidery hoop.  This project was super cheap but has a big impact in our living room.  A simple, sweet...

What I Wore Wednesday – Black And Gray

The week of Thanksgiving was filled with lots of great food, family, and traditions.  We had two straight days of all of those things with both sides of the family and I enjoyed every second of it.  I also found myself dressed in comfortable and yes, stretchy, fabrics to accommodate the extra healthy portions of comfort food that I ate last week!  The color pallet of black and gray made a lot of appearances last week, probably in hopes of disguising the two day long binge that occurred.  Lets just say, that it worked out just fine, because I was perfectly happy, comfortable, and did not...

Kid’s Felt Christmas Tree – Let Them Re-decorate It Over And Over

Do you have a little one in your house that would redecorate the Christmas tree every single day until Christmas?  If so, here is a great idea to let those little hands get creative with their very own little Christmas tree.  Using a dollar store cone and some felt you can create them their very own Christmas Tree that they can decorate over and over again, any way they would like, all season long!  Felt ornaments, lights and garland allow them to move things around and change things up without breaking the real ornaments on the tree. I will never forget my son’s first Christmas. ...

What I Wore Wednesday – Neutrals

After editing my pictures for the week I noticed that I had a very neutral week.  I wore mostly browns, blacks, tans, and gray.  While it is kind of uncharacteristic of me, I liked all of the outfits for the week, and still got in a few pops of color here and there.  Normal I love a lot of bright colors and fun textures mixed in with my neutrals, but sometimes less is more.  I came up with three really simple and budget friendly outfits that have pieces that I wear again and again!  One of the pops of color was from a simple jersey scarf that is ruffled, fun, and requires no sewing at...
