I'm still here...

I know I haven't posted in a while. My apologies.

Normally, that would drive me crazy - "Ah, I missed a Not Me! Monday!" or "I really need to get a Blog Hop post up!"

But I'm doing ok with it this time. We all need a break sometimes.

And by a break, I do NOT mean things have slowed down here at all!

I'm just enjoying my family and our activities around here and...


I LOVE this time of year and it is even better now that I am home to decorate and bake and make gifts.

So here are just a few things I've been doing or plan on doing this holiday season...

DIY Jingle Bell Swag (I need cheap silver bells - anybody?!?!)

DIY Holiday Glass Hurricane

Quick and Easy Decal Art

Jingle Bell Vase Filler and Frames

Star or Flower Cardboard Roll Ornaments (we painted ours red to make poinsettias!)

How are you getting ready for the holidays? Any great cheap DIY projects?


  1. that's awesome. maybe I should do some decorating. oh and the jingle bells...maybe Dollar General or Dollar Family.

  2. I had an "off" blog week last week! I think it's because I have already started getting ready for the holidays! I'm working on teacher gifts and something for each of my kids' classes (90 kids). It's a little overwhelming!

  3. Looks like a fun DIY list! I am getting mine together and hope to start working on them soon! Just have to finish up a few things first. I saw that bell swag and thought I should make one too.

    How about Hobby Lobby for the bells? They have their things 50% off all the time! :) Show us when you get it finished... I'd love to see it!

  4. I will have to check out all of your projects! We have not gotten into the holiday mood yet, well I have, but the hubs has not yet!

  5. Smart thinking with the Hobby Lobby wedding section! I don't think I would have thought of that! Post pictures when you get them all finished, please! Exclamation points!!!
