I have two sweet boys who are all of a sudden 11!  I can’t believe that in February, these sweet boys will be turning the corner toward their teenage years!  Or, maybe I can’t believe that I am old enough to have 11 year olds!  Every year, I am on the quest to find cool Christmas gifts for them.  You know, something super awesome that they’ll love and treasure for years to come~and maybe even last long enough to give it to their kids.  While they still want toys, I’m happy to oblige~before they turn toward wanting super expensive electronics.  One of the cool Christmas gifts I’m gifting them this year is a Daisy Red Ryder BB Gun.

DIY Christmas Gifts~Coasters

DIY Coasters using a split damask design. Perfect for teachers, friends, and family at Christmas. #diygifts #christmas #silhouetteamerica

DIY Christmas gifts are starting to be my “go to” for the upcoming season.  Instead of thinking, “Where can I buy one of those?”, my thoughts turn to “I wonder what I could make for so and so’s gift?”  With our boys rotating amongst teachers during their school day {no more self-contained classrooms}, that is 4 teachers I want to treat to a fun Christmas gift, not just one teacher anymore!

Princess Jewelry Hook

Princess Jewelry Hook #princessroom #littlegirldecor #silhouetteamerica

Princess….I think that should be Natalie’s middle name.  I mean, really.  She has two older brothers, she is the only girl we have, and she loves anything and everything sparkly and shiny and girly.  I personally wouldn’t have it any other way!  So, for her birthday, we did a little room makeover.  We wanted it to be “princessy”, but not Disney princess.  You should all know by now that around the Hurst house, we love us some Disney travel, movies, music, and magic.  BUT, believe it or not, our house is not-nor will ever be-“Disney-fied”.  Including the kids’ rooms.    So, playing with the princess theme, I created this Princess Jewelry Hook so Princess Natalie can have her jewels within easy reach and they won’t get tangled in her jewelry box.

Personalized Baby Name Tile

BabyNameTile

I’m all about personalized gifts.  Whether it’s with a monogram or the name of the recipient, I love adding that personal touch.  And that means I usually get to use my Silhouette Cameo :).  So, when my sister had my sweet little niece, I knew that for a shower gift, I’d be making he something personal, and something that will remind her of how much God loves her. Piggybacking on my Family Tile, I came up with this Baby Name Tile for her.  It’s so unique, fairly easy, and personal.

Peanut Butter Rolo Stuffed Cookies #rolos #BunnyTrail #Eastercandy #recipes

This post is on behalf of Global Influence.  I was sent an assortment of Hershey’s Candy to utilize for baking, creativity, etc. as part of this post.  All opinions are 100% mine.  

Did you know you can win a HUGE assortment of HERSHEY’s candy?  Any look at my Pinterest boards, and you know that I have a slight addiction to the peanut butter/chocolate combination.  Then, you go to the Desserts page here on My Favorite Finds, and it’s confirmed.  My go to dessert combination is peanut butter and chocolate.  When Easter comes around, I am all over those REESE’s Easter Eggs.  Anybody else?  I LOVE them….even more so than regular Reese’s Cups.  Why?  I don’t know.

Seven Days of Love for Your Kids

14 Day of Love #valentinesday #kidsactivities

Valentine’s Day tends to be overshadowed in our house.  The boys’ birthday is on February 15th, so we are usually knee deep in birthday preparations or parties on Valentine’s Day.  But, I still want to show some extra sweet love to the boys, and Natalie, during the month of February.  We started the 14 Days of Love on February 1, and we’ve been going strong every since ! Although, we are still a week from Valentine’s Day.  But, I wanted to share this with you, in hopes that you can start this fun tradition in your house for the next 7 days.  On Valentine’s Day, we’ll culminate with a gift card to their favorite place as an extra special treat.
