Tis the season for holiday parties and celebrating with those that you love! What comes with needing to enjoy every moment of the company you’re with is also a need for that perfect gift to thank the hosts. A few posts back I made a little gnome and decided that a handmade gnome would be perfect for the upcoming parties. These little guys are slightly different in design and finish than the previous ones. They have already delighted at an early holiday party that we attended and as gifts for the attendees of our thanksgiving dinner. Would you want to order a few of these for your house or as gifts?

There’s a little green monster on your back! No it isn’t jealousy, it’s this cute little creation. Sorry for the scare, I just couldn’t help myself with Halloween less than a week away. Is anyone else getting extra excited? This project took less than five minutes and it only took three items (four if you count the dot of hot glue)! Read on to see how to make this five minute Halloween craft!Continue reading “5 Minute DIY Little Green Monster”
This past week, one of my great friends came over to the apartment and we did a girls night. I don’t remember the last time I painted instead of carved a pumpkin and it was a blast! We talked and laughed as we made up some gluten free pumpkin chocolate chip muffins (shout out to Trader Joe’s for the mix!), popped open a bottle of champagne for mimosas, and painted. She is an amazing artist, so while she did a portrait of Edward Scissorhands on her pumpkin, I decided to make a fun cartoon vampire mouth.

I can’t believe that it is almost to the end of summer! I’ve enjoyed my summer, but with the opportunity to make multiple crafts one night, we decided to throw a fall craft into the mix. We already have a few more projects lined up in the next month but this might be the easiest.
It did get us thinking about what candy to fill it with when it is time to put it out as a decoration. We went a little nostalgic too. Anyone remember the Mary Jane candies? It’s a peanut butter molasses taffy like candy that we would get when I was little around Halloween. I’m not sure if they still make them but I will definitely be checking in about a month from now. What candy would you fill these fall pumpkin candy containers with?Continue reading “DIY Pumpkin Candy Container”
Every time my boyfriend and I go on a trip together, we bring back an ornament as a souvenir. It’s a tradition we started on our first trip to Disneyland and it’s stuck ever since. With our third anniversary, I wanted to tie in our sweet tradition to his gift. It will likely be one of my favorite ornaments on the tree this year because it commemorates a big (and wonderful) year in our relationship.
