Could this be the greatest Christmas tour of all time? Perhaps. Will you be drooling over some beautiful blogger homes decorated in the holiday spirit? Probably. Will it dramatically change your life. Nope.
Somehow I got a bunch of my blog friends to agree to getting their houses all in order next week and showing you a ton of pictures of them. I figure if I announce it now, they’re not allowed to change their minds.
I kick it off next Monday (should probably decorate my tree), and all week will be a tu-hun of bloggers’ homes! Ideas and inspiration galore! See you then?

Happy December to you! In other words, happy month of buying that perfect present and wrapping it just right. Part of my monthly challenge with Lowes is to show some gift wrapping alternatives. I was all over this one ’cause Lowes has plenty of cool things to use!
Don’t get me wrong–Lowes offers plenty of beautiful paper and wrapping supplies, but I wanted to show how you can get creative with things. It’s especially cool for the guy in your life that wouldn’t appreciate the glittered reindeer or foil wrap anyway. Everything in these pictures is from Lowes. I used paint cloth paper, some foil tape, string, washers–all kinds of random things–to make it festive.
Pretty cool, eh? I used a paper punch to make all the leaves, but you could easily just make some polka dots or more stripes. It was fun finding creative ways to implement basic supplies! Who knew a door hinge could look so festive?
Not only was it fun finding various materials, but it’s also extremely inexpensive. The brown paper could easily wrap 2,592 gifts. You probably know my love for Lowes, and I’m so thankful to be a part of their team. Don’t forget to subscribe to their FREE Creative Ideas magazine. It’s a good mail day when it arrives around here!
Disclosure: Lowes provided me with a gift card to showcase this project as part of their Lowes Creative Ideas Bloggers’ team. All the thoughts and opinions are certainly my own. I don’t get gift cards for those.
THE biggest Silhouette sale of the year is taking place RIGHT now! I know a lot of you said that this is on your Christmas list this year, so this is the time to purchase. You won’t find these items for this price after December 8. Use promo code JAGIRL to get yours today! –how’s […]
December is almost here, and I’m juuuuust starting to freak out a bit. I’ve purchased one present for Christmas, and I don’t even have a turkey for Thanksgiving. In 4 days. So what do I do when I’m under the wire? I decorate for Christmas. As part of my Lowes challenge this month, I decided […]
Remember how I said I don’t do many giveaways? Well, forget about that for now. Christmas season is here, and too many GOOD opportunities are coming at you for me to keep passing them up. I’ve had a great relationship with my Silhouette machine for years now, so when I was told I could offer […]
With the upcoming holiday season, I find myself diligently trying to come up with ways to keep my kids appreciative and aware of their blessings. Oddly enough, I find that it gets a little more difficult as they get older. They “think they know”, and they “get it, Mom”. I have nearly perfect kids, but […]
We have lived away from our family for almost 20 years. As you can imagine, that means a LOT of traveling back and forth for the holiday. Several years ago, we declared Thanksgiving as the ONE holiday we would no longer travel. We invited family to come our way, and they called our bluff. They. […]
Happy Tuesday! I don’t do a ton of giveaways over here unless I know it’s something good. And I mean gooood. My obsession with boutique shopping is long-standing, so being a part of this giveaway was a no-brainer. I am in awe of the prizes offered, and I knew you’d love them too! We have divided […]
Happy November 4th!–otherwise known as 50 days until Christmas. Awww them’s just jokes. No need to rush fall, ya know? We’ve still got another month of fallifying to do! To kick off the month of November, I thought I’d do a little round up for you. When going through old posts, I had forgotten I […]
One of my favorite childhood memories was taco night. Almost every Friday, my family and another family would alternate homes and host a taco dinner. Looking back now, I realize that it was an easy (and yummy!) way to have dinner and feed lots of people. Of course, I also realize it was a good […]
