Year in Review

2016 was a pretty good year. It had its faults and there were plenty of not-so-great moments… but, at the same time, we did accomplish some good things. Aside from raising these two sweeties, here are some other awesome things that happened.

We also revealed our new laundry room.

We shared our new front porch:

This girl turned five, and we went to the beach.

We had a blast at our church July 4 picnic and I shared a Fixer Upper inspired sign and our newly decorated back porch.

The biggest thing that happened in August was this:


I shared my ideas for our front and a garden party.

24 days of Christmas both entertained me and made me tired. I shared our candlelight tour, Christmas tour, and these sweet snowglobe ornaments


Our sweet oldest performed in both her kindergarten Christmas program and the Christmas play at our church. We traveLed out of state for Christmas with family. 


We ended our year with our youngest sick and in the hospital.


No, 2016 wasn’t the best of years, but it wasn’t all bad. I believe 2017 will be better, and I can’t wait to see what good things await us in 2016. Happy New Year, my friends.

Wrapping paper storage ideas


This year, I did something I usually don’t do. I wrapped my gifts using wrapping paper that had a big pattern and it had red in it.


I also used some red ribbon and some vintage inspired tags I created.


But even with this boldly patterned paper, I used a touch of traditional.


You will find a few “brown paper packages tied up with strings.”

I also wanted to talk about my wrapping paper storage.


This underbed box contains ribbon, tape, scissors, small bags, and boxes. I have wrapping paper for Christmas, baby showers, birthdays and weddings. 


I just slide the box out from under the bed when I need it. 

How are you storing your wrapping paper?

Tiered Tray Vignettes 


Tiered trays are useful for serving, but did you know that they can be great for creating vignettes as well?


I used a simple silver tray to showcase some ornaments and faux holly and greenery. 

This tiered tray vignette took 10 minutes to create and it looks so cute in my dining room.


What Christmas vignettes have you created?

DIY Snowglobe Ornaments


I enjoyed the snow globe jars that I made a weeks ago so much…


…that I decided to make some snowglobe ornaments.

First, I bought some empty glass ornaments from the Target dollar spot.


Then, I used some wood glue to atach some miniature bottle brush trees to the inside of them.


I let them dry for 24 hours and then added some Epsom salt to them.


Easy peasy, and lots of fun, too

A hot cocoa station


We are coffee drinkers at my house, but this time of year, we like to drink hot chocolate.


I decided to create a hot chocolate bar. I started with an IKEA tray.


My hot chocolate bar contains these cute little hot chocolate tins my hubby got from his secret Santa (and then I stole them).

There are peppermint sticks and marshmallows.


Then, there is a jar of cocoa and a salt shaker with cocoa in it.


And that’s how I made my cocoa bar.

Breath of Heaven


Today, we have seven days left until Christmas. Since I am trying to make sure I am focusing on our Savior this season, I wanted to share my favorite Christmas song with you.

“Breath of Heaven” is special to me because it’s written from the perspective of Mary, the mother of Jesus. It was also recorded by one of my favorite recording artists of all time, Amy Grant.

Breath of Heaven

Merry Christmas, my friends. Join me again tomorrow for a “sweet” DIY.

Shopping guides: gifts for men


I don’t know about you, but the men in my family are notoriously hard to buy for. I put together this little list of really neat (and really manly) Christmas gifts.


www.personalcreations.com
Monogrammed watch boxes are a nice gift. I especially liked this one.


Uncommon Goods
How about a nice grilling set for the grill master in your life? This one from Uncommon Goods is affordable and nice.


Tim Rees Fine Art
This handsome MANicure set is both a unique and practical gift.


Marshall Headphones
How about this really cool speaker from Marshall Headphones?

I hope you’ve enjoyed this shopping guide. What gifts do your “hard to buy for” men enjoy?
