Our Day of the Dead Party Frame is the perfect photo prop for your Halloween party!
I host an annual Halloween party and this year the theme is Day of the Dead. My friends and I love getting our pictures taken and with all of the cool sugar skull make-up/masks this year Melinda and I wanted to make a fun frame to use as a prop for the party photos.
10 Non-edible Trick or Treat Ideas that will ensure your house doesn’t get toilet papered.
Soon it will be candy overload time. Don’t get me wrong, I love taking my kids trick or treating but the amount of candy they bring home is a bit much. I have younger kids so I’m only trick or treating for an hour and even in that short amount of time they accumulate several pounds of candy! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-candy by any means, I’m just saying there needs to be a balance.
These kid-friendly Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups make getting your kids to eat their vegetables a little easier.
I don’t know how it is at your house but getting my 4 year-old to eat his vegetables, much less try new ones, is no easy task. I’m not against using a few tricks to slip some healthy veggies in unnoticed though!
A Personalized Monogram Frame is a great gift for weddings and anniversaries. In this tutorial we show you how you can make your own.
For those of you who have been following along at home. The rustic bridal shower we have been helping a friend plan is finally over…and it was a success :). The final project we worked on for it was a gift for the bride-to-be, so we had to keep it a secret until after the party…which wasn’t easy since neither Melinda or I are any good at keeping secrets!
I can’t imagine anything better than a hearty robust stew this time of year. I’ve put together 10 Savory Stew Recipes that will warm the heart and put a smile on your face.
These Braised Short Ribs are cooked low and slow all day, until they are fork tender and melt in your mouth.
Melinda and I do a lot of party planning and as much as we love our families sometimes we need to get out of the house to be able to focus. When Gold Peak Coffee asked us to spread the word that they are available in new markets it was perfect timing because we had just
been asked to help plan a bridal shower for a friend. Trying to do that from home is always hard, there are a million distractions, kids, husbands, pets…it’s so much easier (and more fun!) to meet up at our favorite restaurant, have a nice steak and talk about plans over a cup
of coffee and a piece of cake.
Our Halloween Spider Web String Art makes the perfect creepy, but cute, addition to your Halloween decor.
The Wood Connection sent us their wooden Spider Web this month and I was so excited because I had the perfect idea for it. If you’ve been following along at home you know that I’ve been developing a bit of an addiction to string art, starting with my Hello Sunshine project this summer. It’s only gotten worse and at some point I’m going to have to make one of those deer head string art designs. I love them so much! Anyways, I knew as soon as I saw that wooden spider web that I wanted to do another string art project. Having the wood already cut out in the perfect shape made it so easy!
Our Sugar Skull Decanter Knock-off is simple to make and a fraction of the price of the original !
Last year I fell in love with Crate and Barrel’s Morelia Decanter, but I couldn’t justify spending $50 for it when I would only get to use it once a year. When I saw it on their website again this year I decided I had to try to make my own. I’m so glad I did. I was able to make make my own version for only $0.99!

These simple Vampire Water Bottles are a fun Halloween snack for Halloween parties and trick-or-treaters alike.
There is so much candy during Halloween, the kids are on a month long sugar high, so we decided this year we were going to come up with some fun Halloween snacks and treats that weren’t candy. We host at least one Halloween party every year and we always buy lots of bottled water and Fanta soda for it so, we decided to do something with Dasani bottled water. The first thing that came to mind was using our black drink tub as a coffin and turning our bottled waters into little vampires. Turns out Vampire + Bottled Water = Super-Cute!
