This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Albertsons. All opinions are 100% mine.

I thought I'd bring back a family favorite for our Thanksgiving festivities and my … [Read more...]

Oh Deer Coffee Mugs

Oh Deer! Coffee Mug

Have you noticed the deer trend creeping up everywhere?  I'm usually not big on trends, but for some reason this is one that got my attention while I was shopping for our "Cocoa for Charity" Hot Cocoa Stand.  Which lead me to create these Oh Deer Coffee Mugs. And this project is so easy to create and the great thing is that when the trend changes I'm not stuck with something that is no longer "cool!"  I am so excited about not only including my cute little Oh Deer Coffee Mugs in my hot cocoa … [Read more...]

The Perfect Tween Gift Ideas – Graphic Skinz

Cool Graphic Skinz Heart Locket

Have the Christmas lists from your kids started pouring in?  Maybe it's because we've had our Christmas tree up since Halloween but my kids are making their list and adding to them daily, but I noticed that my oldest daughter's list is much smaller than the twins.  Aside from the typical book request and American Girl Doll she doesn't have much else on it.  She loves reading, writing and anything to do with art, but for every holiday and birthday she gets tons of art supplies and she really … [Read more...]

Ruffled Burlap Garland Tutorial – Michaels Dream Tree Challenge

Assemble Ruffle Garland

I recently participated in the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge and created what I liked to call my Rustic Reindeer Christmas Tree.  This tree features everything that I imagine you’d find in the reindeer’s barn at the North Pole.  From snow balls and jingle bells to wooden logs and Rudolph’s shiny red nose. This sophisticated yet cozy tree is the perfect mix of natural elements with just the right amount of glam.  One of my favorite elements of my Dream Tree, which by the way was also featured … [Read more...]

Holiday Entertaining Tips for Your Thanksgiving Table

Giggles Galore Thanksgiving Menu and Table Setting

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I love that we have a day set aside just for celebrating the things we are thankful for and spending time gathered around the table with loved ones.  And while we should count our blessings daily, there is just something so heartwarming about families gathered around the table together to celebrate their blessings.  Plus, I’ve always believed that the best conversations happen when family and friends are gathered together around the table with good … [Read more...]

Is gold still a hot trend?  I sure hope so because lately I have been doing lots of projects with lots of gold.  Everything from gold glitter pumpkins, sparkly gold t-shirts and now my new Be Thankful Vintage Window Decor.  Lucky for me some of my blog friends think metallics are still hot too and we've teamed up to share 7 marvelous metallic projects with you. After months of this vintage window, which came from my husband’s grandmother’s farm, I finally found a use for it.  Last month I … [Read more...]
