After Christmas

I hope you had an awesome Christmas! Mine was a little different. Normally I go back to Michigan and spent time with my family but this year I had to stay in Florida so I went to Jerry's parents. I'm not going to lie I was having a really hard time. Christmas is my favorite holiday, it was super hot here, and I miss my family so it was so so.

Although I did have an awesome weekend visiting friends, shopping, crocheting, seeing some weird light exhibit (they had creepy plastic Santa's and stuffed toys), and spending time with the Killebrew's (Jerry's family).

A Few Things...

Last night I was looking on Youtube for a few final DIY ideas for gifts but instead I was kinda intrigued by some Christmas decorating ideas. I get distracted so easily. Anyway here are a few that I thought were clever.

This geometric wreath idea from Meg Allan Cole is super simple and cute.

I love bath products so why not make my own bath bombs? This gal has a tutorial for moisturizing bath bombs.

A feather boa, fiesta, tinsel, and woodland tree. Why not??? This is such a clever idea. I never knew you could use a tomato cage to create a festive tree.

I love this cute lil mustache mug.

Do you still have some shopping/hand making to do?

Shining Light

This is another ornament I made earlier this week. Its so simple and made with very few supplies.

All you will need is spray paint (or acrylic paint), a wood ornament (I got mine at Joann Fabrics), Mod Podge, Glitter, Paint Brush, and Ribbon.....

...and when you are finished you'll have a cute glitter ornament :)

Christmas Nail Designs

I saw this tutorial today "4 Cute Holiday Nail Polish Designs" on Kandee's Youtube Channel. They are to cute! Plus this tutorial/Kandee is awesome. Not your typical Youtuber (is that a word?) anyway I really like the White Christmas idea and the Santa's Coat. These are great for Christmas week.

Oh yes Christmas is coming I can't wait!!! The baking, gift giving, lights, and spending time with family and friends :)

For the Pups!

Have you ever been stumped on what to get your furry lil pup or family pup? Well why not make them something amazing that they will either love to eat, play, or cuddle with? I personally don't have a pup but my family has 3 beagles (Sadie, Ginger, and Ruby)  and another dog named Hunter. They are so precious. But every year my sister Kels puts up their own Christmas tree down stairs and puts toys and treats underneath it. So far I got them marshmallows (their treat of choice), some of their favorite food, and some other treats but I was looking around and found some other cute ideas listed below :)

1. Dog Treats 2. Squeaky Dog Bone 3. Dog Silhouette Ornament  4. Pet ID Tag 5. Reversible Dog Bandannas 6. Dog Collar 7. Squeaky Dog Toy

I decided to make some ornaments this year and wanted to share a few tutorials with you. This Grinch ornament is made out of fabric and several embellishments.

If you would like to make a stuffed ornament you will need the following supplies.

Fabric with any design
Coordinating fabric for the back
Polyfill Stuffing
Embroidery Thread
Embellishments (sequins and beads)
Embroidery hoop (optional)

First pick out a design and cut out a rectangle or square (to have extra room). Once the piece is cut start embellishing the fabric using sequins, beads, embroidery, ect. I decided to use a embroidery hoop to make things a little easier (this is optional).

When finished adding embellishments cut out a piece of coordinating fabric for the back.

Place both pieces of fabric good sides facing each other, pin, and cut the desired shape including a seam allowance. Sew around the piece either using a needle and thread or sewing machine. Leave a small opening and flip the fabric inside out. Then stuff the lil guy with polyfill, sew the opening shut, and add a ribbon for hanging :)

Christmas is so close and there are a few things on my wish list :) First is the Naked 2 palette that came out a few weeks ago. I already have the Naked palette but I heard this one has much cooler tones. I love the neutrals! Some other makeup things I really want to try is the Bobby Brown Corrector and the Benefit Erase Paste. I'm really into makeup lately (good and bad thing). Also this elephant bank would look nice on my desk, maybe some big pearl earrings would be awesome, or something super shiny... Fingers crossed ;)

Do you have a Christmas wish list?

Be Merry

Christmas is approaching way to fast this year. Its my favorite time of the year but I still have some minor decorating to do. Like putting up lights, getting some things out of boxes, and making a few more things :) I love crafting/making gifts so I was searching for some inspiration and found these cute tutorials for Christmas.

Hello! Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. I went up north to see my family for Thanksgiving and they live in the country so there really isn't any internet access. But I'm back in FL and have a few ornament tutorials I'm getting ready to post next week.

I hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving :)
