Pin-spiration | Halloween

When Halloween comes along I always miss the days when I mulled over costume decisions with my siblings, seeing myselfΒ transform as I turned into a new character, and the smell of burning pumpkins glowing by tea lights in the dark as I trick-or-treated. We’d happily stuff ourselves of honey ham sandwiches before we trekked through […]

A Craft Fair Weekend

It’s been ages since I’ve been to an actual craft fair, so I was pretty excited to go to two last weekend! So excited, even a little rain on Saturday couldn’t keep me away from the first one I attended. Ever since starting my own candle company where I hand make my candles, I have […]

Stuck In My Head Triple Feature | NEEDTOBREATHE

Thanks to Pandora, I discovered a new-to-me band, NEEDTOBREATHE (yes, all caps. No spaces. Apparently it was a marketing thing). I have just about fallen in love with them – not to mention to lead singer’s voice. To me, they’re a bit of a mixed sound of a little rock, a little county, a little […]

DIY Painted Mugs & Vase

Note: the paint used in this tutorial is non-toxic but not food safe. It is not recommended to paint where your mouth will go on the mug. Of course I learned that after painting mine, so I’m helping you to learn from my mistakes! I was itching to get creative and after remembering we had […]

Thanks to LoveMelisaMichelle, on YouTube, I have found a new website, shoplately.com, for incredible and reasonably priced jewelry among other fun girly stuff! After drooling over a few pieces I was able to convince the hubby to get them as my Christmas presents this year, so now he can easily cross me off his list. […]

November | Thankful Challenge Day 1

Halloween has now officially come and gone. To celebrate the holiday, I decided to bring back a family tradition my mom started and had a honey ham with potato rolls and baked beans while enjoying Charlie Brown’s It’s the Great Pumpkin. And you know the night wouldn’t be complete without Hocus Pocus and apple cider! […]

Christmas Mouse Haul

The moment I’ve waiting for all week finally happened – stepping foot back into Christmas Mouse and getting my hands on just a few things. For those of you not familiar with Christmas Mouse, I’m sure you can only guess by the name, but it’s a store that sells Holiday related items all year round. […]

Instagram It

Looking back at my posts this year, I realized I haven’t shared too many of my Instagram shots, so I thought it’d be fun to post a few of those today! Personally, I love photography in any form I can get it, even if Instagram has me feeling like a faux photographer. P.S. Don’t forget […]
