Yummy, Christmas Cards, Wreaths, Key fobs oh my! try it tuesday!


I made these delicious Chocolate tarts with peppermint creme

If I was going to make them again, I would make half the amount of peppermint creme, and more chocolate cause I really filled up the tart shells. Oh, and I only did half the amount  of extract asked for cause, I didn’t want the peppermint to take over the dessert.

I finally am done with all my christmas cards! I did a hybrid card and really loved how easy and quick they turned out! I might even do it again next year :) I love them, I think they are my favorite cards ever!

I added the penguin inside the scalloped circle. It added a great touch. Since penguins are HUGE in this family, of course we had to use it!

See that cute polka dot wristlet on my keys?! I made that! :) Out of felt and ribbon! I love it and everyone always asks me where I got it!


I made this too!! Eddie Ross came up with the idea and it has been all over blog land. It was a pain in the BUTT to make but I'm glad that I finished it. I used over 60 balls. I made some smaller balls too. It’s perfect!


I had really cute hair the other day. I owe it all to this flower that I got in a 2 pack at forever21. Try it! Put a flower in your hair, I felt sassy ALL day :)


I give this post and hot cocoa when its 10 degrees outside, 2 enthusiastic thumbs up!

Let's talk about how adorable & fun you are and how I really truly do want to live next door to you so we can make cute crafts and drink hot cocoa together. Bc really, I love crafting but I don't like crafting alone is that wierd? And my bff works fulltime and doesn't have babies yet and my other ultra crafty bff just moved 6hrs away with her bebes and we all miss them, waaaa!
