Valentine Hoops

Well while I'm on a roll might as well as do 2 posts in one day because who knows when i'll get around to posting again! 
So while browsing Pinterest I came across these beauties.
Seriously, fell in love with them right away!
And so i made my own, pretty much the same.
I tell you i have embroidered since i was 10?
I don't even remember.
Thankfully it's easy and i Love how these turned out!
I used some embroidery hoops, some i had already some i got at a thrift store
and then i got some 
and buttons from Joanns

Then i started to sew.

They were all really fun to sew so finished this project in 2 days
 (probably could of done it one)

Really the picture doesn't do it justice y'all
You just have to make your own or come to my house to see them.
This is something i could see my self leaving up all year round or even incorporating into something on another wall.

Simple Heart Banner

Wow, has it really been one month since i blogged already?
Can't believe it's already Feb.
I don't know why but i LOVE to decorate for valentines day.
Each year i make a couple new things to add to my valentines day decorations tote.

This first craft is a really easy banner.

I purchased these heart stickers from Joanns

And these solid and stenciled hearts

I also bought some felt squares of my own and cut out even more hearts

Then i just layered everything together, gluing as i went.

Then i glued some twine on the back. 

We recently moved and guess what?!
We have NO mantel!! I was really disappointed, because i love to decorate, so i just hung up the banner here above the fireplace.

what do you think?
Do you like to decorate?

Building A Snowman

Last Friday it snowed!
It was only a couple inches and it melted pretty fast,actually it was gone by the end of the day.
But I made sure we got out and enjoyed it while we could!

She was SO excited to make a snow angel!
As you can see there wasn't a whole lot of snow!
We also made a small snowman
Happy snowman :)
And who doesn't love a snowball fight!
Even though it didn't stay long we sure enjoyed it!
Do you get snow?

Decorating is serious business

Day Of Snow

Day of Snow
Has by far been my FAVORITE thing we've done on that list!
They had everything from 
Kids rides
Zip Line
Real Reindeer
Go Karts
Tons of crafts
Story in the theater
It was an amazing event!
Sledding was her favorite!

Here's a short clip of Hailey sledding.


Going for a ride in Butter Cup

So many crafts but of course this is the one she really wanted to do.
Ice cream cone for the tree
Green frosting 
Candy to decorate
It was there one minute and the next it was gone!

'The Biggest Snowball Ever!'

I thought it was pretty cool that they had a zip line!
What a fun and memorable day!

Christmas Parade

 We went to a Christmas Parade!
I'm not going to lie.
It was a little disappointing,
but we had never been so we had to go at least once!
Plus it was only 30 minutes long, which was nice because it was COLD outside!

Staying warm!

Unicycles were pretty cool!

Hello Santa!
rather goodbye.
Does your town do a Holiday Parade?

Kid's DIY Winter Craft

We've been keeping busy with our winter bucket list!
We've done a lot of crafts this month but this one by far 
has been my favorite!
Here's how we did it, so you can do it too!
All you need is:
Masking tape

I then made a snowflake design with the tape

And then I let Hailey go to town with the paint!

After it dried was the fun part!
Taking off all the tape to reveal.............

A beautiful Snowflake!!

No project is complete around here without glitter!
So i painted the the snowflake with white paint and she sprinkled it with glitter

I Just had to get in on the fun too!
I glittered that canvas up big time!

Love her little masterpiece!
