Gift Wrapping

Christmas is right around the corner and you're all probably finishing up some shopping, and along with the shopping comes gift wrapping. I know that some people either love wrapping gifts or absolutely hate it, I love it.
I thought it would be fun to do a mini "How To" post, on how I wrap gifts, it is actually fairly easy, and I'll show you why!

DIY Candy Cane Holder

SO last minute, but hey, that's the way some of us roll.

If you have a chance to pop into a store, or you already have this material, it is inexpensive and totally adorable!

What you'll need:

♡ Paper 
♡ Felt 
Light, and dark grey
Pink, blue, purple, orange, red, green, etc.
♡ Scissors 
You can use fun scissors with squiggly ends, or normal ends 
♡ Goggly Eyes 
♡ Mini Buttons 
♡ Glue Gun 
♡ Sparkly Sequins 
♡ Candy Canes 

You'll want to make the shape of a mouse on a piece of paper, oval with a pointed end on the grey felt. 
You'll also need the shape of the ears (larger) and the inside of the ears (smaller), cut them out and the place them on top of the felt, and cut them out.

Make sure you cut two little slits on the shape of the mouse (grey felt, after the mouse shape is cut out) for the candy canes to go through, as seen at the very end.

My Christmas Playlist

We are at the prime time of the Christmas season to blast "All I Want For Christmas" and "Feliz Navidad" without receive judgmental glances. I don't know about you, but I've had Christmas music in my head, and random singing outbursts since last Christmas. Yes, I would actually randomly sing "Silent Night" in July, not sure why, just know I did.

So if you are in a mood to put on some fancy, snuggly Christmas tunes while you clean the house, do school work, take a shower, try to sleep, while you're driving, or just while you're relaxing, I've created a pretty heavy Christmas playlist on Spotify that I would love to share.

In the playlist you'll find all kinds of Christmas music, from instrumental, modern takes of classical Christmas music, original Christmas music from artists of today, and the past, to slow, peaceful music from Josh Groban and Fifth Harmony.

Let me know what you think, and feel free to create your own playlist with music from mine!

Decorating For Christmas

This is my absolute favorite time of year. It feels warm at home because the of the lights and cooking food, there are holiday movies playing on the t.v. and the Christmas commercials are playing left and right.
I can honestly say that the Christmas season is the one I enjoy the most, and look forward to all year (for crying out loud, I was sining Christmas music throughout the entire summer), so it's fairly easy to say that I thoroughly enjoy decorating for Christmas, putting up the tree, the lights, the smallest details warm my heart.
So I've decided it would be fun to make a post about Christmas decorating, this year my family and I have really gone a little bit farther with the decorations than other years, and that makes me extremely happy. 

So if you haven't decorated yet and you need some inspiration, or you are in the mood to change it up a little, this is how my house is decorated this year!
