I came across this room and feel in love. It still says warm winter decor, but not so much in a Christmas way. It speaks to me, "comfy, cozy."
I would love to cuddle up here in front of the fire!
My artificial tree came with pine cones attached so I decided to go with a natural and simplistic look selecting only gold ornaments to trim the limbs.
The "Merry Christmas" garland below is my favorite holiday purchase this year. I came across this at Home Goods and knew it had to come home with me.
Of course, had to had some festive holiday decor to my wooden cart. I found these pre-lit trees at the Christmas Tree Shop for $1.99 and $2.99... not a bad deal!
My favorite part of the nursery is the tutu-like curtains that are layered over the blue panels. I helped pick those out!
Below are pictures from a shower Lauren and I threw for our friend Brittany.
I found these awesome cupcake toppers on Etsy. They were the perfect silhouette especially since the cute bob haircut symbolized Brittany.

As you can see, I am addicted to my Cricut machine. I made all the favors using my Cricut and mugs from IKEA.
Now it's on to Christmas season and gift giving.
Thanks for stopping by!

I started with the following items that I already had lying around the house:
I googled "how to make a flower out of ribbon" to watch demo videos and get started.
I started folding the ribbon using various methods I came across in my google search.
I sewed the ribbon in several places throughout the middle to secure the flower creation.
I also added lighter color ribbon as little leaves since my mom insisted the pillow needed something else to make it pop.

Notice the typical white blinds (which I despise). Please let me know if you have any cost effective solutions for window treatments of this size. I am so ready to move on from these.
Currently, I only own the "George" font that came with my machine, but am looking forward to purchasing more so I can expand on my vinyl projects!
Then I used painting tape to block off areas where I wanted to add gold trim. I filled in the areas with a gold paint pen.
Like I mentioned above, spray painting was fun and easy so I started looking around my house for other things turn metallic gold. I thought this glass container displayed in my kitchen would look dazzling in gold so I started by spraying the cork piece.
Happy Spray Painting! :)
