Bubbles is extremely excited for the Christmas season this year.  She loves to sit next to the tree and look at the ornaments while playing with her Little People Nativity Set.  So I was excited to partner with PackageFromSanta.com to sprinkle her with some holiday magic.

Kids can receive a personalized package from Santa full of Christmas magic mailed directly to them!

These Snowman Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes combine a couple of treats I’ve been wanting to make for a long while: ice cream cone cupcakes, and snowmen cupcakes.  I figured the nod to summer using the ice cream cones was especially perfect for Christmas in July. Continue reading »

Blue and silver is probably one of my favorite color combinations for Christmas.  I mean, I love the traditional green and red, too, but silver and blue just seem so classy.  Plus they’re an easy nod to all things winter, so you can extend the use of your decorations for a longer season.

"Bright", "Peace", "Hope" and "Joy" DIY Tile Coasters in silver & blue - perfect for Christmas!

I’ve had some white tiles kicking around in my craft stash that I knew I wanted to turn into coasters.  I just wasn’t exactly sure what kind of coasters. Continue reading »
