cheesy heart paper chain – a valentine’s day craft


I'm a Valentine's Day baby. Being born on the 14th gives me a certain aversion to all things pink and heart related. I can't help it. I don't really decorate the house for Valentine's Day because of that. My office is big on decorating for the holidays. We had some major decorations for Halloween and the winter holidays this year. I had to chip in and make a Valentine's Day craft, even if it is not my favorite because I can't give up an opportunity to make decorations for something. These … [Read more...]

this is halloween – diy skeleton wreath


Last year I made a cute bat wreath that I was fully intending on using this year until I came across some mini-skeletons on sale at Michaels.

valentine’s Day white fabric wreath

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! We've been pretty darn lazy these past two weekends. Not productive at all but to be honest, we needed the rest. I shared this wreath over at How to Nest for Less last month but since Valentine's Day (and my birthday!) is right around the corner, I wanted to share it here too. I made the white fabric wreath with the intention of making it simple enough that I could repurpose it for different holidays. Here is what it looks like now, all ready for Valentine's … [Read more...]
