Last Minute Christmas Gifts

Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have noticed I was furiously working on a little last minute Christmas project Saturday (What?! You don't follow me on Instagram? Look me up. I'm @Tauni). My friend Victoria uses similar bags each year to package her children's presents from Santa. I thought they'd make a perfect last minute gift for the family. Plus, they're so GREEN... Do you do something similar at your house? I have to admit, this is the first time I have...I am a bit of a gift wrap and packaging whore (yep, I went there)... The construction was ridiculously simple...doesn't … [Read more...]

Since last year's Halloween wreath was made of feathers and glitter, it was pretty apparent a new, spookier wreath was in order. I really wanted to make something with skulls and have been trolling the dollar store for something suitable from the moment Halloween stuff started showing up on the shelves... I actually ended up finding … [Read more...]
