So when you have a child who lives and breathes a sport and you happen to be a control freak yourself, you tend to find yourself the de facto team mom. And when you are the de facto team mom, you somehow become responsible for planning and executing the team banquet. So for our very small budget softball banquet this spring, I put together a some cute centerpieces to make it special.

Merry Christmas!

Well, the season is upon us and, I have to say that Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year. I love how sparkly and pretty the house is, I love the smells of cinnamon and apple cider, I love our relatively new family tradition of gathering all the women in our family (four generations are represented!) who are home during Christmas and planning a treat-making day and baking, I love the kids’ programs at school and church, I love that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus and I love creating an environment that makes my kids smile.

Sparkly Christmas Wreath

I’ve decided I want to make ornament wreath for all upcoming holidays! So easy and affordable to make.

*October 10, 2012 – Thank you for the wonderful compliments about my wreaths. Unfortunately, I am not making them to sell at this time. I’ve got a tutorial posted here and they are pretty easy to make. Good luck!

Harvest Wreath

We’re having our big Halloween bash in a few weeks but I was feeling a little more Thanksgiving-y this weekend. I’d been flipping through my cache of old Southern Livings and Pottery Barn catalogs and came up with a plan for a fall wreath. I am loving how it turned out! Even better, because the ornaments are unbreakable, it will be a cinch to store!
