Easter Ribbon Wreath

Our front door is usually the first place you catch a glimpse of an upcoming holiday or new season.  So far this year, I have been a little slow to get a new wreath up.  My goal for Easter was to get a new wreath up before April 1st and I just barely made that goal.  My Easter ribbon wreath was finished on March 31st and I put it out on the morning of the 1st. Score!

Pom Pom Napkin Rings

For Easter, we usually go visit my in-laws and have Easter brunch in the dining room of their retirement community.  Nobody cooks and there is no table to set.  While it is nice to have zero work to do, I do miss getting my house and table all dressed up for the holiday.  This year, we are actually going to have Easter at our house and I am super excited.  But, Mathlete has put a major spending freeze on house stuff so I can’t run out and buy a bunch of new table decorations.  So, I decided to make some instead and started with pom pom napkin rings.

Hiding in Plain Site – My Kleenex Style

Thank you to Kleenex® for sponsoring this post and keeping my stylish and practical.

Winter followed by Spring brings a ton of runny noses to our house.  We have to keep tissues in pretty much every room in our house to keep little noses clean and clear.  I used to tuck away tissues around the house in places no one saw but that always left me digging for a tissue when we really needed it.  So, I decided to change my approach and find my Kleenex® style.

Flashback Post – Valentine’s Day Countdown Calendar

Advent calendars are HUGE for Christmas countdowns.  I do one every year and love it.  After Christmas comes, it seems like a little bit of a let down that we aren’t counting down to any other holidays.  So, last year, I decided to create a Valentine’s Day Countdown Calendar to keep up the fun of holiday countdowns.  I am re-sharing it this year because a) last year’s photos were awful and b) I want to make sure you saw it :)

Homemade Christmas Trees

It was my pleasure to partner with Make It:Fun and FloraCraft® to share a “Foam for the Holidays” homemade Christmas tree project with you.

Decorating with small, homemade Christmas trees can be super easy but make a big impact.  When you create your own, there is so much versatility for how your final product will look.  I’ve decorated my own trees over several years using scrapbook paper, tinsel and even just glitter.  Using STYROFOAM™ cones makes creating homemade Christmas trees so easy.Styrofoam Tree Collage [Read more...]
