Holiday Gift Tags- FREE Printables!!!





 Tis the season for wrapping gifts.  I have been really good this year about getting all of my gifts either made or  purchased already.  The thing that I have not done yet is gift wrapping....hhhmmm.


Luckily I made these tags a couple of weeks ago and I printed a bunch out for my neighbor gifts!  All of these tags are super cute and print out very nicely!

My goal is to get all of my wrapping done this weekend!!

If you still have wrapping to do then be sure to scroll down to the bottom to grab your FREE copy of each of these printables.

When do you start to wrap your holiday gifts???

DIY Wood Stars




 Hey everyone!! Hope you all had a great weekend!! We had an early Christmas with some of our family.  It was a busy but fun weekend for us!

I am really loving these DIY Wood Stars.  They were inspired by this garland in my Christmas Pottery Barn magazine. I think I hacked this whole page :)  To see the giant ornament go here, and to see my traditional mantel go here.

Today I am going to show you how I made these DIY Wood Stars!

Christmas Mantel- Traditional


Hey everyone!! Hope you are having a great Friday! Time is just slipping away from me :) Christmas is less than two weeks away!! We have been doing some house remodeling, which I am excited to share with you! But, today I want to show you my Christmas mantel is case you are still looking for ideas.

A few days days ago I showed you a sneak peak of my mantel with the Pottery Barn giant ornament hack.  Today I am going to show you around the whole mantel!








If you have been following along here at all you might remember that I mentioned that I actually have 2 mantels in my house! This house has had multiple additions over it's some 60ish year existence.  Along with those additions came 2 mantels and the removal another fireplace.  Let's just say this house has got some character. If you want to see how I decorated my other mantel for Christmas this year head over here.

For this mantel I went with a more traditional red/green/wintery theme.  My inspiration came from here.

Pottery Barn Ornament Hack




I have not done many hacks here on the blog.  That doesn't mean that I don't like to do hacks, especially when I can make something expensive for much much less! I want to share with you guys this DIY ornament that was inspired by pottery barn!

A couple of months ago I got one of Pottery Barns magazines in the mail. As I was flipping through it my heart was jumping out of my chest. I loved everything I saw!

Then I came to this page......

Guest Cart Ideas - Entertain with style PLUS A GIVEAWAY!!

*A huge thank you to Wayfair for sponsoring this post! My favorable opinion of entertaining must have's is 100% my own. For more information, see my disclosures here.*


Hey everyone!!
Today I am continuing on with all things Christmas!!   I have been a busy bee working over here trying to get my house all ready for guests!  My main area of focus, as usual, is cleaning...... :)

I really really need to be more organized!!  Anybody have any tips for me.....?

Do you like hosting Christmas or entertaining guests?  I agree that it can be somewhat stressful. Personally I love to have people over to my house.  It makes me happy to have a house full of people. Especially during the holidays!

When I thought about what goes into being a good hostess and  having a fun holiday, three things came to mind: atmosphere, food, and company.  If you have a warm welcoming atmosphere with good food then I am sure your company will have a great time enjoying themselves.

Let me ask you a question.....

Have you ever been traveling and you arrive at your destination, maybe it's late at night, only to realize that you forgot your toothbrush, toothpaste, contact lens solution or makeup remover??

I know I have....

Today I am going to share with you something new that I have started this year at my house whenever guests come to stay.  This can be used for the holidays or any time of year whenever you have guests.
