Can you believe it's already December? Crazy! I'm really trying to be ahead of the game this year. Our holidays decorations and Christmas tree is up. Some presents are wrapped & I'm working on classroom gifts for my daughters school. My biggest project that I can't ignore is our holiday cards.
Every year I turn to Shutterfly for our annual Holiday Cards. This year their wonderful new collection features traditional colors and embellishments to merry & bright colors (my favorite!) that take on a modern feel. Whatever your style, they always have something for everyone. Don't forget to check out their special offers for the best deals on cards, photo books & gifts!
Looking for a cute, clever & inexpensive advent calendar?
What you'll need:
Round label stickers
Large bubble wrap
Using the bubble wrap, cut out a Christmas tree shape. Take the labels and have your little ones write out numbers 1-24. Place one sticker on each bubble. You can place them in numerical order or to make it more of a hunt, place them in random order.
Who can resist the joy of popping bubble wrap? I personally have no self control, so I'll leave this one for my daughter to enjoy! Haha!
Today I found this helpful Elf On A Shelf planner from Lovely Living. There's a sheet to jot down crazy antics ideas, a calendar to plot the daily events and a planner to keep track of necessary supplies needed.
Go HERE to download your copy! Let the shennanigan's begin!
I'll be posting photos of our elf's ideas so stay tuned!
I wanted to create a fun Thanksgiving treat for the kids table. While Halloween shopping, inspiration hit when I saw the brown & orange version of candy corn. Forget the drumstick, it's all about the 'Turkey Toes' this year. Ha!
I made these Turkey Toes tags using a fun chevron turkey image I created. With a tag paper punch & some card stock, create the tag shape. Using a distress ink pad, create a gritty, aged effect. Add a hole with a paper punch and attach some raffia ribbon.
Add about two dozen candy corns to a treat bag & you are all set!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner & I need some projects to keep my little one busy while we're visiting family. Paper placemats & this pilgrim hat filled with crayons is sure to do the trick!
What you'll need:
Hot glue gun
Simply cut the bottom out of a black cup (I only had white cups so I sprayed mine with chalkboard paint). Hot glue the cup upside-down to a circle shaped piece of black paper. Cut a band for around the cup & add a scrapbook paper square for the buckle. Simple!
These would also be adorable at each place setting to hold disposable silverware setting or fill them with candy treats!
