More Christmas

I always post a picture of my Christmas mantel each year, and just realized I hadn't put it up yet this year yet!

I decided to take my favorite Christmas decoration (Thank you Mary Beth) and make it the centerpiece of my mantel this year. Then I added some extra clippings from the tree (asked if I could take them from the tree lot when they cut them off of mine) and created a cute little Christmas mantel.

My mom bought me the adorable ornament decoration and I picked up Mrs. Snowman at Homegoods. I added a short string of lights and some candles and my cute tiny Christmas tree picked up at the Neuse Sport Shop!

Here's the whole look put together!

What do you guys think? Anyone have their adorable mantel decor to share?

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!
