A SnowScape Cloche

I tend to get a little craftier around the holidays. Last year I saw some beautiful glass snowscapes in a local gift shop and I loved them - but they were quite expensive - especially when I knew I could probably make one just as cute myself. So, this year I did and I thought I'd share with you guys! All of the items are from Wal-mart and Michaels and cost about $18 total.

What you need:
- Scenery items (I used two bottle-brush trees and a church ornament all from Wal-Mart)
- Wooden base (Michaels, then painted it white)
- Decorations for trees (not required)
- Wide-mouth glass vase
- Tinsel glitter (I just wanted an excuse to use Martha Stewart's new line of tinsel glitter)
- Spray adhesive
- Glue gun
- Ribbon

Step 1: Paint the wooden base with white paint, spray with glue adhesive and sprinkle with tinsel glitter and allow to dry.
Step 2: Spray bottle-brush trees and church with adhesive glue and sprinkle tons of tinsel glitter on them (My little guy and I did this outside. I sprayed and he shook the glitter and had a blast! BTW, we had glitter everywhere, but it was fun!)
Step 3:  Use glue gun to attach minature gold ornaments to trees
Step 4: Glue trees and church to wooden base
Step 5: Cover with glass vase, ribbon optional

And that's it! I have it on my mantel with greenery and gold accents and I'm loving it!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!



New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.


Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
