Dollar Store Ornament

| Uncategorized

I have become more and more fond of the dollar store over my crafting years. It is amazing how many projects I have been able to find all of the supplies for at the dollar store. That is the closest place to me that has crafty supplies. Then my next stop is usually Walmart. To get to a full on craft store I have a bit to drive so I usually save that for special supplies. Luckily the dollar store has me covered and I have been stopping there on the daily for Christmas stuff. Just kidding….kind of. I made these adorable fairy garden ornaments all from a few dollar store supplies. They were really, really easy to make and have such a pretty whimsical feel. I’ve seen all kinds of fairy gardens but never in ornament form. It was time for a fairy garden ornament! read more

Christmas Party Food Toppers

| Christmas, Winter

Reindeer and Snowflake food toppers

This is one of those Christmas projects I thought of last minute, winged it, and they turned out super cute! Sometimes I plan and plan, then the project turns out like crap. Other times I get in the zone, improvise, and something good comes out of it. I was having a Christmas Day of crafting, Christmas music, pjs, and eating Christmas cookies with my daughter. We came up with these fun sparkly Christmas party food toppers made out of pipe cleaners. We made reindeer, Christmas trees, and snowflakes oh my. I’m going to show how to make the little snowflakes. The trees are super easy and the reindeers are the hardest but oh so cute. All in all it is an easy shiny and fun craft. Really great for making with kids. So I have pictures for the snowflakes, the trees you can figure out from the instructions but the reindeer I made a video and I just need to figure out how to upload that to give you the whole tutorial of how to make them. Overall they are all easy peasy to make! read more

Reindeer Rolls The Easiest Holiday Party Food!

If you’ve visited my blog you know I am all about easy projects! Easy crafts, easy party ideas, easy desserts, and easy foods. That’s just how I roll and now it is how I reindeer roll. I made these easy reindeer rolls for a simple party food for a crowd. They are super cute and seriously the easiest to make. Okay, I didn’t actually make anything I more decorated some store bought rolls. This time of year is filled with holiday parties and there isn’t always time to make all the food and do all of the things. Make it easy on yourself and still get something cute. You can make home made rolls or use store bought. read more

Snowman Snack Cups

| Uncategorized

Here in sunny Florida we don’t get any snow. That is why I am extra excited for these snowman snack cups! My snow comes in marshmallow form and decorations. For day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas I made these adorable little snowman cups you can use them for drinks or snacks. They are really simple to make and turned out just adorable. They would be cute for a kids party or kids class treats. Adults would love them too! My daughter kind of helped to make them. Ok she mostly listened to Christmas music, chatted with me, and ate marshmallows while I made them but it was fun quality time. We had a quality time Christmas Day and it was the best! Crafts, snacks, Christmas music, a Christmas parade, night time hot chocolate, and Christmas lights. We had a Christmas binge and it was the best time ever! read more

Christmas Movie Quote Printables

| Christmas

Home Alone Aaah Printable

Merry Christmas all! One of my favorite Christmas traditions is watching my favorite Christmas movies. Today I will be showing you some fun Christmas movie quote printables for a fun Christmas movie night. I picked a couple of my favorites because I couldn’t pick just one. I did narrow it down to my top three! The top three are…drum roll….. Elf, Christmas Vacation, and Home Alone. These are my favorite Christmas movies of all time. I also like to throw in some Hallmark Christmas movies to watch! They are so incredibly cheesy it is amazing. Nothing like a warm and fuzzy Christmas movie. My favorite Christmas movies I love because they make me laugh for completely different reasons. The childlike fun of Elf on one end and the funny family dynamics of Christmas Vacation. I’ve already watched Elf now on to the next one. read more
