Tis the season for teachers gifts and I have a quick last minute gift idea for the teachers, daycare providers, carpool parents and bus drivers in your little ones lives. Because I know how tiring 2 kids are, a cute Christmas mug and coffee cards seems like the least I could do!
Like most families we spent most of our days in the living/family room hanging out, reading, watching movies and playing. It also feels like the centre of our home because of our cozy fireplace. The fireplace mantel is always my starting point for any type of holiday decor. Once I have it all put together, everything else seems to fall into place.
Tis the season for dressing up your home for the holidays with all the trimming and trappings of the season. When I am decorating for Christmas and I don’t feel like things are coming together because I don’t have enough ornaments or because my garland is getting thin and sparse, I like to make a bunch of easy bows to cover the problem spots with pretty holiday ribbon!
Do you have your Christmas decorating down to a science? Do you keep the same theme or style from year to year or do you like to change it up each year? Me… I like to keep things the same. Reds, golds and the green of the tree.
This year I have been trying my hand at decorating with fresh greenery and I am sharing how I made some very simple hanging swags for the garage lights outside our garage. The process is really simple and only slightly sappy.
I want to talk to you today about cheese sandwiches. Cheese sandwiches are synonymous with boring zero effort school lunches but thats about to change because I am about to show you how to make the best dang cheese sandwich of your life!
Of your life!
I’m fairly confident about that.
I am sharing a couple of holiday printables I have whipped up to decorate some corners of the house this season. This JOY sign is hanging out in our foyer right now. I am planning to stick to traditional Christmas colours this year so it coordinates perfectly with the rest of the house.
The early Christmas season is my favourite time to shop for a few new holiday decor and get an early crack at Christmas shopping. I came across a very simple but really pretty pompom garland in red, threaded along a white rope and I dropped it into my cart.
I love a beautiful tree skirt. There are so many gorgeous ones to choose from in any colour, size and material you can think of. And also, I don’t what one of those.
Today I am sharing a super simple way to remove egg from the ingredients of a box of brownie mix. I am not much of a baker and while I am improving, When I am in a pinch I still go to a box of cake mix and look for ways to make them safe for our kiddo with allergies over try something from scratch.
