This time of year I usually get lots of visitors to my Christmas Window Boxes post from four years ago, so I decided to create an updated version full of new inspiration just in time for this holiday season. Never mind that I still haven’t decorated my own boxes this year, but my son and I did take a walk in the woods this morning to collect evergreen branches so it shouldn’t be long now.

I have almost made a Halloween wreath for my front door for years now but haven’t been able to wrap my mind and creative impulses around exactly what to design.

Baby, it’s cold outside (finally), and I’m looking for some inspiration for a cute little chocolate bar – you know with all the marshmallows, whipped cream and peppermint goodies. So today I’ve gathered lots of Pinterest ideas to help you (and me) create our own. From printables to tasty toppings and serving dishes to design, this collection of inspiration has a bit of it all.
Have you ever thought of doing one of these fun little “December Daily” scrapbooks that are all over Pinterest these days? I have. . . and thinking is about as far as I’ve gone at this point. Seeing as it’s already the fifth of the month, I would say I’m pretty far behind already (surprise!!), but I really would like to do a simple version of this great project for 2015. It’s just a cool way to kind of bring the advent of the season to life and make each moment special as we near Christmas day. So as I… Continue reading »
