Holiday Home Tour

Holiday Home Tour

I wanted to invite you into my home this holiday season. See this is a special holiday season for me since this is my first year in my new (rented) home and my first year celebrating the season on my own. While I have lived on my own before it had been in grad school where I travelled home for the holidays and there was no real need to decorate.

Melted Snowman Cookies

Melted Snowman Cookies

Along with an ugly sweater party my work is also having a Christmas cookie contest. Now I am naturally competitive it runs in my family. Don't get me started on our family game nights!

Now I don't want to cheat so I did not ask my sister to make these I just asked for her guidance.

How to Cut Wooden Discs

How to Cut Wooden Discs

The past two Winters I have been really into crafts and decorating with these wooden discs. Problem is I have been spending a small fortune to buy them on Etsy and have you seen how much craft stores are charging for them? Well on Thanksgiving I noticed my Brother-in-law had done some landscaping in his yard and had a pile of branches to burn. After dinner I went our back and grabbed two small branches.
