Donut Reindeer

Aren’t these donut reindeer so cute? They are a really fun breakfast for Christmas morning or dessert for holiday parties. Really easy to make. I made homemade donuts but you can also use store bought. I had to make something that looked like a reindeer because I have been seeing so many cute reindeer foods. Since I have been on a donut kick lately for me donuts was an obvious choice. I used to only have eyes for cupcakes but donuts have completely changed that. Okay, maybe I just have a major sweet too ;).

Honeycomb Wreath

| Christmas, Decorations, DIY

Honeycomb Wreath with mini ornaments. This wreath is incredible easy to make and has a beautiful modern look. -Val Event Gal

I have been wanting to make a wreath for a while and I am really excited about this honeycomb wreath! I am just blown away by some of the wreaths I have seen from fellow bloggers. Some are super fancy and intricate. I love what I have been seeing and I had planned on really making something fancy. Then life happened and I didn’t have the time to dedicate to the fancy wreath in my mind. Don’t you just wish you could think something up and then it could magically appear? Someone needs to invent a machine that does that. Sounds simple enough ;). Anyways I didn’t have the time but still wanted to make my own wreath. I was browsing in the party section at Target as I tend to do because they have amazing things! Oh Target, what would I do without you. I came across this pink honeycomb and thought it would be cool for a wreath. I know pink doesn’t scream Christmas for some people but I also wanted to make something that I might be able to get away with keeping up past Christmas. Pink really is a year round thing! Since we are doing more of a modern Christmas with gold, pink, black and some bright colors this definitely fits in. You can use other colors as well red, green, blue, magenta or whatever tickles your fancy. Now lets get to business and make this honeycomb wreath!

Santa Bag and Present Treats!

| DIY, Events, Holidays

Santa Bag and Present Treats. How to make marshmallow Santa bags with snow and candy canes inside. Also present cupcakes for SantaI know everyone this time of year makes cookies. I love cookies as much as the next gal but cupcakes are just my thing. I like to make cupcakes, marshmallow pops and cake pops. They are just so cute! Since I’ve had Santa on the brain but didn’t have time to figure out how to make Santas I decided to make Santa bags and presents. These would be fun to leave out for Santa, for Christmas Eve or on Christmas when you are opening up presents. Both are really easy to make! For the cupcakes all you will need are cupcakes, frosting(any color you want), sugar(not needed) and pull n peel Twizzlers.

Pastel Christmas!

| DIY

PicMonkey Collage

In the last few years I have moved about 5 times. WIth all of the moving I tend to get rid of the nonessential items like holiday decorations. Although they really are essential with my daughter who is obsessed with Christmas! I realized we had no Christmas decorations nada, but I still don’t want to buy large decorations since we have limited space. Right now we are in an apartment and I don’t want it to be too cluttered. Well at least not more cluttered than it already is with all my craft supplies and Keira’s toys. With a 3 year old they always need running around space. I decided to make some small decorations. I didn’t want to go with traditional Christmas colors this year, I thought some pastel colors would go nicely with our home decor! Our decorations are sort of a winter wonderland with some pink thrown in. Since it’s just us girls there is always some pink thrown in!

CD Advent Calendar

| DIY

PicMonkey Collage

I am new to the whole advent calendar thing. I know I am a bit behind the times. This year is the first time I really wanted to make one. My daughter is now 3, she can really understand and get excited about a count down to Christmas. Last year she was really into the decorations and wanted to go see Christmas lights every night. I love the lights but she was completely obsessed. This year she is more into the Christmas projects not just looking at the decorations. I saw some cute advent calendars that all seemed to be filled with candy. I love candy but I know we will be baking a lot this month so I didn’t want to do too much sweets. I guess there is such a thing as too much candy(maybe).
