Top 5 of 2011

 Wow! I seriously can't believe we're at the end of the year! I've had this blog for 10 months, and have learned so much! I love and appreciate all of you, and I hope you all have a wonderful New Years!

Without further ado, here are my Top 5 Picks of 2011:



5 Minute Egg Nest Necklace

Hi everyone! Did you all have a great Christmas? We did! But I'm kinda glad it's over. It's always so hectic around the holidays.

So! Today I want to share with you this sweet little necklace I made. It literally takes like, 5 minutes once you get the hang of it! I ended up spray painting the pearls light blue, and they chipped a little when working with them. But I kinda like them like that!

 Ok, here we go! 

Supplies Needed:

+Floral Wire
+Needle Nose Pliers
+Jump Rings
+Wide Marker
+Circle Beads

Take your wire, and wrap it around the marker. I used this highlighter because I liked the width of it; it makes for a good sized nest! 

After wrapping the floral wire around the marker several times, remove the wire carefully, leaving about 4 inches extra before cutting from spool. Then thread the wire around the nest a few times to secure one side. 

Thread a bead through, and then wrap the wire around the opposite end a few times to secure the bead. If you run out of wire, just start a new one and repeat process for each bead you want in the nest (in my case, it was 4).

Then I attached a jump ring to string the necklace through, and voila! You have a cute little egg nest necklace!! Easy Peasy RIGHT?!



Merry CHRISTmas!

But the angel reassured them. "Don't be afraid!" he said. "I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David!

Luke 2:10-11

May you all remember the reason for the season this year-that God sent Himself to be our hero; a Savior to the world! Praise Him! Merry Christmas EVERYONE!

Set Apart Sunday #7

Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

Ephesians 4:31

Praise God for his unfailing mercies!

 Hope you all have a GREAT & Blessed Week! 


We're only DAYS away now!

Boy, did December fly or what?!

 Are you guys finished with your Christmas shopping? Yeah.....I'm not. But close! That has to count for something, right? Oh, such a busy season this always is! Yet it has really gotten so far off the point, which is our sweet Lord Jesus who gave His life for us! Let us remember that, every day of the year :)

So! I'm finished with my buffet remodel and can not WAIT to show it to you all-it's truly breathtaking! We got it into our room tonight, so expect pictures soon!

 In the meantime, I HAVE to share with you how amazing the Bath & Body Works Wallflowers are! Right now, they are having a sale of 4 for $20 or 6 for $24! They have the adorable holiday Plug Starters-

And these absolutely divine fragrances I picked up for myself!

   So if you haven't snatched them up yet, you need to! I love them! They work wonderfully, and make great gifts!

                   Hope you're all having a great week!


Oh Christmas Treeeee!!

Our lovely Christmas tree. That I just LOVE. So much. The toys to the left crept their way in the pic, the skirt was tossled about because of the electronic Zhu Zhu Pet cruising underneath it, much to the delight of the girls, and no presents are under the tree.

 But, the tree....is UP. And looking so beautiful. So much more stunning in person. Some of you have that opportuinty, to see it in person. Some don't. But trust me-she's a joy to have in our home :)

 Have you put up your tree yet? Real or fake?
