Show + Tell 146


Do you stop decorating your house for the holidays? I have to be honest, while I have the bulk of my decor up the weekend immediately following Thanksgiving, I tend to putter around adding things here and there right up until Christmas Eve. I found a few fun decor pieces and some last-minute gift ideas in last week's linky that I really wanted to share with you today. So, without further ado, let's jump right in! Show + Tell Highlights Oh man. I feel like my sweet friend Rebecca, from The Crafted Sparrow, has been holding out on me. She share SO MANY amazing links last week. I thought I … [Read more...]

I often prepare my Show + Tell posts while watching The Voice (man, I love that show). While I watch these crazy-amazing artists, I can't help but think how many of you are THE talent of blogging.

Show + Tell No. 144: Christmas Ideas

With Thanksgiving now behind us, we've jumped head first into Christmas around here. The tree is up, holiday tunes are playing throughout the house and glitter has lightly dusted every surface imaginable (including all three boys and the dog, which has been slightly less popular than a mug of hot chocolate in 90 degree weather). While I am always running behind, I am feeling good about the fact that most of the presents have been purchased and my holiday crafting is done (outside of one girls weekend). Yippee! Since I am relishing the holiday spirit, I thought it would be fun to share a … [Read more...]

8 great ideas for Thanksgiving via @snapconf

I am a planner. I like to plan things well in advance and will be the first to admit I am not all that spontaneous. The fact that we still haven't finalized our Thanksgiving Day plans and I don't have a set menu makes me slightly ill. Rather than be down in the dumps though, I am going to take a glass is half full approach to things and appreciate how much more I can truly enjoy all of the fantastic Thanksgiving ideas that are still being shared at Show + Tell each Wednesday. Today I am excited to share a few of the fun Thanksgiving-ish posts I've been checking out this week! Show + … [Read more...]

Show + Tell No. 140: Fall Food

cookie edit

Oh brrrr. It's been COLD outside this week. I love that living in Utah I get all four seasons, but I am starting to think that summer should be like nine of the months and then we can have rain, cold and snow for just the remaining three...I could handle that... In any event, I am more interested in curling up on the couch than anything else these days, so I thought I would share some fun fall comfort food today. Show + Tell Highlights If you read my blog for any amount of time, you have probably figured out that I am a bit of a freak for all things fall, especially pinecones! Tell me … [Read more...]

Show + Tell No. 137: Cute Halloween Ideas


I am suffering from a slight bout of Halloween depression. I only have one little trick-or-treater left. His older brothers have decided they are "too old" at least one or two years too early for my taste. It appears there is nothing left but to live through you guys and your phenomenal projects.
