DIY Giant Pompom Tree Skirt

November 26, 2015

Our old 9' Christmas Tree just didn't really fit in our new space. I might have been able to rearrange some furniture but it would have blocked the main windows in our living room which we need for sunlight. So this year I decided to get a pencil tree instead which required NO rearranging of furniture whatsoever.
Unfortunately our old tree skirt just overwhelmed our new skinnier tree. So I made this cute over sized pompom tree skirt out of materials I already had lying around my craft closet. Just white yarn and burlap.

0.59 Cent Hobby Lobby Art

November 23, 2015

Since moving to the new house some things have taken priority over others. The kids rooms have definitely played second fiddle to other more prominent rooms but the bare walls were starting to get to me. 
So while making a trip to Hobby Lobby last week for Craft Night materials I happened upon this cheap 12x12 paper art in the patterned paper isle. The ones with gold in them were $1.99 but obviously still very affordable.

Make Those Holiday Threads POP with the Right Shoes

With the holiday season now here I'm sure many of you are looking for outfits to wear to that Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas banquet, New Year's Eve party. Might I suggest taking a look at Payless to outfit you this holiday season! You really DON'T have to spend a lot to look on trend!

If you're anything like me you'll find a whole bunch of looks you wouldn't have even known you wanted! When I went this past week I couldn't believe all the adorable yet extremely affordable shoes that I snagged. And when I went to checkout the best part was my lack of receipt shock!

DIY Rainbow Dash Costume

October 30, 2015

I only made one costume this year. Mostly because the kids didn't express a strong opinion toward any specific idea or character until last minute. Molly had said she wanted to be Evie from The Decendants and I wish I had made a costume with pattern for her because I think it would have been pretty popular this year. But sourcing some of the material would have been a nightmare. Her jacket is a bluish black and her skirt has words printed on it so maybe it was for the best.

October Craft Night: Velvet Pumpkins

October 27, 2015

Our monthly craft nights resumed from a summer hiatus this month with more velvet than an Elvis Presley painting. Jealous? You should be! They're velvet pumpkin with REAL pumpkin stems and they turned out fantastic. So easy that each person was able to make and take home between 7-12 pumpkins each! Tutorial below.

Wreath Wire Drum Shade

October 13, 2015

We bought this house with your typical gold dining room chandelier. It wasn't horrible but it was kind of 90s (along with the rest of the house). The before chandelier. (Sorry for the fuzzy photo) The previous owners had took the shades with them so it was even more bare than in this photo.

Go Short This Fall

Crisp, chilly weather is here! Time to break out the boots. Wear 'em short or tall but definitely wear them this fall. I took a peak at Off Broadway Shoes for my fall boot fix. They have all the latest boot styles at amazing warehouse prices.
