Let’s face it, after Christmas many of us don’t have a budget to spend on New Year’s decorations, especially if you are hosting a party. We started a tradition a few years ago, where a few families with kids get together to ring in the New Year. I wanted to make it a little special […]

Let me preface this by saying some of my friends think I’m nuts. Ha! This one may seem like I have a lot of time on my hands, but honestly it took me less than 15 minutes to do. It would have been less time if I didn’t have to wait for my glue gun […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I took a little longer than usual decorating the house this year. I wanted to keep it simple and not too cluttered. Since I’ve pretty much had the same decorations for many years, I did add some burlap to give it a more rustic feel.  I also […]
