Can you believe Thanksgiving is in a week? It’s crazy making. My Christmas lists aren’t ready for Black Friday shopping so that is, for sure, the next on my to-do list. But I am thinking ahead to eating a LOT of food next Thursday. I’m also thinking about that intricate dance of getting all the side dishes timed perfectly to get to the table the same time as the turkey. And all those hot plates need somewhere to sit. All you need to do is head to your local hardware store and make these easy DIY trivits. You’ll have a set of matching trivits, a bountiful table of food and a full stomach in no time!
Yes, Thanksgiving is all about the food. We eat two full meals that day (one with my husband’s family and one with mine!) but there is nothing worse than the feeling of an empty stomach while you wait for all that yummy food to come out of the kitchen! I created these DIY place card and snack trays to guide your guests to their spot at the table and keep them from getting hangry… Head over to Julep to see the full DIY!

November is a fun month in our family! We celebrate my husband’s birthday and really kick off the holiday season. Men don’t usually care about party decorations the way we do but I still like to create a party vibe that they would enjoy. Here are my tips for putting together a party that the man in your life will love including these DIY balloon signs!
Don’t tell my husband, but I think I like fishing. I learned some basic skills as a girl on our family vacations to the mountains and had a chance to brush up again this summer. It’s super boring, and I don’t want to be on a boat all day (unless there is wine and music). The main reason I like fishing is because of the tackle. I mean, Power Bait comes in all kinds of pretty colors including marbled and glitter varieties. And snap swivels aren’t just for your tackle box. This is how you make DIY bracelets with snap swivels.
There is nothing more horrifying than ants, amIright? To me ants are the devil so these oversized plastic bugs are the perfect creepy Halloween decoration for me. DIY Halloween decorations mean you can control the creep factor in your home. And with these simple (super inexpensive!) DIY Halloween candles, you can make them as crawly as your little heart can take.
Bugs are not awesome. But I can totally tolerate these fabric bugs. These bugs are even kind of cute. I like to imagine that if one of these bugs bit you, you would end up with a cute little heart-shaped scar and be filled with happiness venom.
