Ornament Garland Tutorial

I have a ton of craft ideas on mind this Christmas season. Too many. In such a small space that we call home, I find myself needing to scale back. But I knew that the mantle needed a little more spice. One trip to Target for a little inspiration was all I needed. 
I love an easy craft and boy was this one easy. So easy my 3 year pretty much did it on her own.
All you need dollar ornaments from Target-you know the ones (I bought 2), tape, scissors and some sort of string of yarn. I just used what I had laying around.
 And a handy helper of course
 She loved figuring out the pattern of what one came next and stringing them on one by one.
 I just wrapped the end of the yarn to make it easier to thread on and it became like a simple sewing project for kids.

 Once you get them on figure out the desired spacing and tie a knot. I made sure to cut a long piece of yarn at the beginning and knew I could cut off the remaining at the end.
 And that is it! I love a craft that takes less than an hour to complete.
Hope you try it out yourselves-I would love to try an assorted colored one next time!

Packed Up

This was my first year participating in Cyber Monday. Well, and knowing about it! Both my husband and I didn't know what it was-guess we are a little bit slow. Well I am glad someone filled me in because it was fun! I love a good deal and so glad to see other people do as much as I do.  Hope it was a fun day for you too!

Opinions Please

I got such great feedback on the last post where I asked your opinion and you are my consumers, so I thought it only appropriate to ask again. I love a good trend and right now there are some really fun styles. Whether they last for years or just another couple seasons-these styles are totally worth it. So cast your vote and tell me which shoe you think I should add to my collection.

Oxford Wedge-It took me awhile to catch on to the oxford shoe for women; I always liked them on others, but was too scared to wear it myself. I have loved how they have merged into classic shoe styles. This oxford wedge I can imagine wearing with so many outfits. Thoughts?
Double-Wrap Peacock Wedge-I am a sucker for this color, especially for the fall and winter. I think it has classic enough lines that you can pull off something formal, but is still casual enough for every day wear-especially the working girl.

Braided Pump-If you know me, you'll know that these should already be in my closet-I just can't decide on the color. My husband likes this color and I like the rust below...HELP!

Zig Zag Flat-Definitely a trend right now, but I think the colors and pattern are awesome and will stick around for awhile. Mom of two, I can't have enough flats. You have to see these on your feet they look a million times better than this blurry photo. 

Thank for all your thoughts and opinions. Be honest and give me your feedback. Who knows, maybe we'll have another giveaway right before Christmas if you love these styles as much as I do.

My New Do

Yup I finally did it! I have been talking about going dark for years and I finally pulled the trigger. And yes, this is dark for me. I was going for a more golden blonde with more of my natural color for the fall and winter. We definitely achieved a more natural color but not so much golden blonde. So not exactly what I wanted but I still like the change. And should be so low maintenance which is great for my current stage of life. What do you think? Definitely taking some getting used to.
