Candy Corn Votives


Halloween wouldn’t be Complete, Without the Look of a Certain Yellow, Orange and White Treat

I have personally never cared for the taste of candy corn at all. But I have always loved the look of it. It is just so cute and Halloween-y!

If you feel the same way about candy corn as I do then these candy corn votives are the perfect decoration for your home. And if you do happen to enjoy candy corn as a Halloween treat, well, this is still a cute decoration for you too!

Healthy Halloween!



Halloween: dressing up in a costume and getting candy from your neighbors.

It doesn’t sound so scary! No wonder children love it so much!

I remember when I was a kid I would have my costume picked out months before Halloween. Then the day of, was a day full of fun, fun, fun! Fun activities in school, a costume parade and then of course rushing through dinner to get in a night full of trick or treating! We wouldn’t stop until our pillowcases were full. The worst part of the night was always when my parents would empty all the candy out and go through each piece- they were looking for hard candies, lollipops and then anything that looked like it might have been opened.
After that everything was ours. We used to hate when our parents used to confiscate our candy, but those were the rules.

Glass Jar Vase

Make Something Old… New Again!!
I always get a little excited when I finish a jar of something, anything really! I am also a little weird- I guess. Once the jar is emptied it can then be used for something else. And hopefully it is something more fun than its use before.

Now, I am not going to lie I have a cabinet full of empty jars that just get used over and over to store leftovers- not very fun I know. But it serves a purpose and makes my life easier. Plus these kind of jars save a lot of space in the refrigerator.

“Not always sunny, But in a Sunny State of Mind” -Lilly Pulitzer
I can’t be the only one who is in shock that August made its way onto the calendar the other day, can I? It feels like I waited forever for summer to come and in a blink of an eye its already leaving. How can this be?

And with the start of August comes the start of back to school planning,for this homeschooling mama. I have only pushed it off and pushed it off until I have a few weeks to go now and I can’t push it off any longer. For me, the hardest part of my planning process is figuring out where to start. It all just seems so overwhelming!

Spring Flowers Wreath


April Showers, Bring May Flowers

I love the spring!! Just knowing the warm weather is on its way is enough for me to want to throw on a pair of flip flops and run outside to greet the sun. And with the sun comes all the pretty flowers! While my favorite flower is the daisy, there is something about tulips in all of their pretty colors that is just so irresistible and just announces “spring is here“.
So in honor of the tulip, and spring, I decided it was time to make a wreath for my door full of tulips.

Kate Spade inspired Glitter Frame

“She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes.” -Kate Spade
I make no secret about my love of all things Kate Spade! Between the sparkle and the bows and the polka dots! It’s all so girly and bright! And the fact that I can have Kate Spade for my daily bag, my shoes, in my kitchen and on my mantle it can be kind of hard to resist sometimes!! However; I realize that sometimes a frame is just a frame. And a frame covered in gold glitter is still just a frame covered in gold glitter- especially if it is without a Kate Spade ♠️ label on the front.

Conversation Hearts Door Hang

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt” -Charles M. Schultz

Happy Valentines Day everybody!!! This really is one of my favorite months. What could be better than a month full of pink and red and hearts everywhere?!? Unfortunately the beginning of this month is just flying by and this pregnancy is really taking it all out of me. I didn’t get to make half of the Valentines crafts I planned on. So I guess I am going to have to save them for later on in the year, when I have more energy. Thank goodness hearts and love are in style everyday…am I right?!?
This is the only craft that I finished so I am going to post it before Valentines comes and goes!! My inspiration was of course, those classic Valentines day treats we all got in school during our Valentines Day card exchanges: Conversation Hearts!! While I never really cared to eat them, I always did enjoy reading the messages printed on them.
