Book Lover’s Canvas Tote Bag Gift
  I bought a few of these great canvas totes from Pick Your Plum a few months ago after seeing what Lil Mrs. Tori did with them…they are cute on their own, but even more perfect to personalize!     I knew that I wanted to make them into Christmas gifts for my sisters (spoiler alert, Margaret and Ronnie! #lifeofablogger), but the hard part was deciding what to put on them.  In fact, I’m still trying to think of what to do with Ronnie’s…but my sister Margaret has been a book lover for her entire […]
Glitter Monogrammed Pumpkin

Spiked Sparkling Cider
  For our tailgate party last weekend, I was originally planning on making hot mulled cider.  That’s always one of our favorite tailgating drinks – I make it the day before to let it simmer for several hours, then just re-heat it on our camp stove at the tailgate.   But since the forecast for the day was in the high 60s and sunny, hot cider didn’t sound like such a good idea.  Instead, I served it chilled and mixed with champagne for a “grown-up” spiked sparkling cider.  It was DELICIOUS!!  I did the same […]

stay-at-home mom to a beautiful little girl and handsome baby boy, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God. I freely admit that I am not the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my unoriginality I can provide some inspiration to you, too! Read More...
