I can’t believe that we are down to the final two bath bomb recipes of the year! I have absolutely loved sharing so many recipes with you this year.

We have officially entered the season where my daughter expects to do a different Christmas craft everyday! Parts of that are so fun, but other parts make it hard.

Layered Vinyl Christmas Tree

I absolutely love making my own Christmas decor. Mostly because I have a hard time finding Christmas decor that I absolutely love in the store! One way that I always enjoy making decor is with vinyl. I heard a quote that I sort of liked, but it was a little too cheesy for my taste, so I changed it a bit. My saying is, “Laugh, Play, Jingle all the Way”. I love how this fun Christmas tree turned out with this little phrase on it. I have plans of making shirts for my girls with this same phrase on it!

Wrapping Paper Neighbor Gift Idea with Printable

I love neighbor gifts for the holidays! It is a great way to show your neighbors and friends that you are thinking about them during the holidays. The holiday season can get so crazy, sometimes you aren’t able to visit friends as much as you wish, so giving a little gift is a nice way to show them that you are still thinking about them! Neighbor gifts can be really hard because the price can really start adding up when you are buying for so many people and making treats for so many people can be extremely time consuming. I love giving gifts that people will be able to use, which is why I loved the idea of giving wrapping paper as a gift so that they could use it to wrap their Christmas gifts this season!

Shrinky Dinks Ornaments Kid’s Gift Idea

Getting gifts for your kids to give to their friends for Christmas can get SO expensive! My daughter really wanted to give her friends something for Christmas, but when you are four years old the concept of money isn’t quite there. We finally agreed on giving her friends some handmade ornaments. I was trying to come up with a cute ornament that could be personal, but easy and cost effective as well and I remembered Shrinky Dinks! I used to make different creations with Shrinky Dinks as a kid and I knew they would be perfect to make ornaments with too! The best part is that each ornament ended up costing about 50 cents each to make!

To make these, I used the print and cut option on my Silhouette Cameo machine. This made making these incredibly easy because I printed them out and just had the Silhouette cut them out for me and they looked great! Of course, if you don’t have a Silhouette Cameo, you could print off your own design on the Shrinky Dinks and cut them out yourself, just know it will take you much longer and they won’t look as crisp. But it can be done! [Read more…]

Family Gift Ideas Everyone Will Enjoy

This holiday season, I’m swapping gifts with another blogger for her entire family for eBay’s holiday gift exchange. I’ve partnered with eBay to create this post! Enjoy!

I still remember receiving family gifts when I was younger. It may sound strange, but the thoughts of getting a gift as a family was almost more exciting to me than getting an individual gift! It was always such a mystery to see what gift would fit our entire family. It was so much fun to see what the gift givers thought our family would enjoy. Those gifts still go down as some of my favorite gifts I have ever been able to enjoy!

I love the idea of giving a family gift. Instead of purchasing several smaller gifts, you can put your entire gifting budget to one big item that everyone can enjoy. Most of those bigger ticket items aren’t things that families would typically think to spend their own money on, so they make really great gifts! 

I put together a few suggestions to help you find the perfect gift when you need family gift ideas!

I loved searching for great gift ideas on eBay. It is a site that I can trust and I know that it is full of an incredible variety of items! No matter what types of things the family enjoys, eBay is sure to have something that would make a perfect gift for them! [Read more…]

Christmas Truck Pillow Tutorial and Giveaway

I have become increasingly obsessed with all of the products featuring vintage cars and trucks carrying Christmas trees. It is such a classic holiday symbol and I love all of the decor that I have seen inspired by them. Last year, I picked up a cute cookie jar shaped like a truck with a Christmas tree on top and I bought another little ceramic truck this year. I knew I wanted a new Christmas pillow this year and putting this classic truck was going to be the perfect addition to the pillow! Making this Christmas truck pillow was incredibly easy, so follow along and you can make your own too!

Finding Perfect Gifts for Everyone on Your List

It may seem next to impossible to find the perfect gifts for every person on your list, but I think I have come close to that this year. If you caught my post yesterday, you already know that I love Shutterfly in a nearly unhealthy way. I just think that the quality of products you can find on their site, along with the great deals you can get, and their incredible customer service can’t be matched anywhere else! I love when I can find things that I know that my loved ones will absolutely love AND I can support a company I love so much too! Here are some of the things that I am going to be giving this Christmas and hopefully they will inspire you while you are looking for those perfect gifts!

Our 2016 Christmas Cards

As much as technology has taken over all of our lives, I really appreciate getting traditional mail. I love the act of walking out to the mailbox, pulling out envelopes and opening them up to see what was sent! Everyone knows that this is even better during the holiday season! Seeing family Christmas cards is one of my favorite parts about this season! We have ordered our holiday cards from Shutterfly for the past 7 years! Before we even had kids, I wanted to make it a point to send out cards because I knew that our loved ones would appreciate the thought that went into them.

It is pretty amazing to see how many different styles of holiday cards that Shutterfly has created over the years. There are SO many options now! I usually try a different style each year. This year, we tried out the glitter holiday cards and they are awesome! The sparkle doesn’t rub off and they just make the card look a little more festive!
