One of my favorite holiday get togethers of the year is our ladies Bible study cookie swap.  Seven or eight of my close friends and I get together to exchange cookies, enjoy great food together, and just enjoy each other’s company before the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season sets in.  And when we are together, there is always some sort of fun, fruity, “frou frou” drink on the table!

Holiday Lashes with Younique


Have you jumped on the Younique craze yet?  I have!  And I LOVE it!  Younique is a cosmetic company, known for their famous 3D Mascara.   I have to say, my lashes are the least of my worries.  I have always had fairly thick, long eyelashes~not wearing mascara doesn’t freak me out.  But I didn’t know how awesome they could look until my friend Niki sent me some Moonstruck 3D Fiber Lashes to try.  I’m totally hooked now!

I was compensated with product by Shutterfly to write this post.  All opinions are 100% my own.  

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..for me, that means ordering our Christmas cards.  I LOVE designing our cards on Shutterfly, adding a personal message, and before I know it that orange envelope is in my mailbox.   I always wanted to be the mom who had those super awesome professional photos to show off on Christmas cards, canvases on the walls, and just about anything else that you can stick a photo on.

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!

DIY Halloween Treat Bowl

DIY Treat Bowl #modpodge

I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Mod Podge and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.

I love it when Mod Podge goodies show up on my door step-particularly those I get to craft with!  As soon as I saw my Mod Podge box of fun arrive, I knew I was going to embellish a plain bowl for our Halloween Treats this year.  I tend to keep the Halloween decor on the down low for two reasons.
