Let the countdown begin! How many of you remember making paper chains to countdown the days to Christmas? I remember a few back in the day.. made out of red and green construction paper. And how about those advent chocolate calendars? Every little piece of chocolate bringing one day closer to Christmas morning! I love creating fun little traditions like that for my daughter, so this year I set out to make a colorful Christmas countdown with 25 days packed full of fun holiday activities.
One of my biggest problems with winter weather is that it wreaks havoc on my skin. I end up keeping a small bottle of lotion on me at all times and no matter how much I use I inevitably still end up with dry, itchy skin. Have your hands ever been so dry that they hurt?

Best of all, these decorations can stay up even after the holiday! [Please click to continue reading…]

Usually I’m spending these days baking up chocolatey goodness in the kitchen, but this year I’m trying something different. I found a great little recipe for some homemade soaps and decided to try my hand at it.
Happy Holidays!! It’s after Thanksgiving so I can say that now, right? For crying out loud, it’s after December 1st already! Can you believe it?? I think I missed a few days… must have been the turkey coma. All of the sudden Christmas is 23 days away!! Did that just send you into a head spinning panic whirl?? I’m right there with ya!
I’ve been feverishly trying to get all the holiday decorations up and thankfully I think we are ready. Well, maybe. In any case, I got up some holiday front door decor so for anyone that is just passing by the house it looks like we totally have it all together. Nevermind the chaos that is going on behind that closed door…
Hi there! It’s already turning out to be a busy holiday season and it’s not even December 1st yet! I’ve…
