How To Create The Perfect Farmhouse Christmas!

How To Create The Perfect Farmhouse Christmas!

My Perfect Christmas is a Farmhouse Christmas … The smell of fresh pine,  pies warming on a wood-burning cookstove, a roaring fire , a hot cup of cocoa and the house decorated with a rustic flair.

Here are some essentials when it comes to planning the perfect Farmhouse Christmas

One key element is a  Beautiful Rustic Farmhouse Wreath . Boxwood, Olive Branch, Seeded Eucalyptus, Magnolia, Pip Berry or Rosemary & Bay, they are equally as beautiful!

If you are lucky enough to be able to forage on your own property you can easily make your own. You Can also check Michaels for supplies to make your own or purchase a handmade one from Etsy! Some other great sources for rustic Farmhouse Wreaths are  Pottery BarnWilliams SonomaTarget, Wayfair & Bed, Bath and Beyond.


Christmas Trees & other greenery.


I love to use fresh greenery and plants when I can but even faux or dried will help bring that outdoor, farm fresh element in!


Add a little whimsy & warmth 



I love to add vintage little touches, rusty decor , mercury glass, old farmhouse signs and chalkboard art labels.

Beautifully festive dishes, table decor and delicious treats!


If you are anything like me then you really love those special finishing touches and beautifully displayed food.

Make Perfect Christmas Cookies, Festive Breads & Cakes, Enjoy the tastiest Peppermint Bark and sip the most decadent hot chocolate.

Diy Farmhouse Christmas

Diy Farmhouse Christmas

Many are feeling the financial crunch this year and are opting to get back to basics and are making many of their Christmas Gifts. Whether it is for financial reasons or because you are just the type of person who prefers to make their gifts, I have a ton of great options for you (along with where you can purchase ready-made items as well if you desire to go that route)

I will be making several of my gifts this year as I always do! ( FYI when we move, my new house MUST have a bigger craft room! )

I advise that if you are giving any handmade gifts that you include an ingredients label for anything that will be ingested or applied to the skin.

#1 – Farmhouse Christmas Signs

I will tell you a few reasons why I love this idea and why this is one of my go to’s. Stencils are inexpensive and can be used over & over again ( truly making this the gift that keeps on giving!) So not only can you make an endless amount of gifts, which can be personalized. You can also make your own decor or even create some extras to sell. Kind of a no-brainer if you ask me!

I grew up making gifts as a necessity but being of a creative nature, it is just something that I love to do.

#2 Handmade Bath & Body Products

This is also a go to. EVERYONE bathes or showers. This is another one of those gift ideas where you can make more than one gift! And how many people love LUSH or Bath & Body Works but cannot afford the price tag? It is also another gift that you can customize, scent, color, and packaging. Making your own Soap , Bath Salts, Bath Bombs and other tub goodies is not hard and you can find many recipes and how to’s online along with complete DIY kits, which by the way, also make an awesome gift. Another bonus is you get to control the ingredients!

#3 DIY Room Sprays & Scented Wax Melts

I have a room spray in every room of my house and numerous wax melters as well. Mix up your favorite scents and add some cute labels or packaging and you are golden! I often will make up cute little gift baskets containing some of each of these items. * As a professional candlemaker, I DO NOT recommend candles. Unless you know what you are doing and have done several tests for safety. You SHOULD NOT be giving these out as gifts, which is why I recommend the melts.

#4 Handmade Chocolates or other Edibles

You can make a really nice gift very easily & inexpensively and make it look like you spent a small fortune at one of those high-end boutiques! Peppermint Bark (chocolate bark of any kind .. ), chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate dipped candies or candy kabobs are very inexpensive to make and go a long way. Package in a pretty container with a printed label and instant gifting perfection!

#5 DIY Christmas planters or plants

This is quite possibly my favorite of all! You can put together an inexpensive Christmas planter with Pots from the Dollar Tree and items you can forage or plants that you have grown or propagated yourself. I am a huge fan of Succulents! (Hint Hint)

So no matter who is on your Christmas list, I am sure that one of these ideas will serve you well. Let me know in the comments below if you plan to make any of your gifts this year?

Handmade With Love Super Bundle & Giveaway!

Handmade With Love Super Bundle & Giveaway!

Snow’s about ready to fall in the Northern hemisphere, and what will you be doing when it does?

Sitting by a crackling fire… Hot cup of tea nearby… Soft yarn and smooth needles in your lap…

Sounds like you’re ready for colder weather :).

If you’ve been on the run all summer and fall, it’s about time for your schedule to slow down just a bit… which means you’ll be reaching for your next handmade project. I can’t think of a better way to welcome winter than to tell you about a collection of digital resources you’re going to be starry-eyed over.

It’s called the Handmade with Love Super Bundle. Before I tell you what’s in it, can we talk about that name? It’s almost like this was created with you in mind.

Everything you make, every stitch you count, knit, sew, crochet, quilt… you do them all with love, don’t you? I feel exactly the same way. That’s why I’m so excited to tell you all this bundle, so you can soak up more of the joy and relaxation that comes with handcrafting.

Okay, let’s talk about what’s inside :-). With over 200 patterns, projects, and step-by-step tutorials, you’ll find dreamy projects to create, new ways to sharpen your skills, or even a whole new technique to play with (quilting! fabric dyeing! rug making! weaving!). This bundle covers: quilting, sewing, crochet, knitting, applique, embroidery, cross-stitch, dyeing, fiber arts, and crafting in general. It’s basically a crafter’s dream collection. Swoon. And even better? You’ll get all these projects and fresh patterns – created by hip, modern designers like Allison Glass, Elise Blaha-Cripe, Anne Weil, Rebecca Langford, and Liat Gat (plus 47 others)… …for just $29.97. (They’re worth over $1,000!)

Curious how it’s possible to get all of this so inexpensively?

The creators of these patterns, tutorials, courses and more joined forces to offer this incredibly special bundle, but just for a super short period of time. Once the sale’s over, they’ll go back to selling their products and patterns at full price. I really can’t speak highly enough about the quality and value of what’s inside, especially for this price! Want to check it out and get your own Handmade with Love Super Bundle? This is how it works: Visit the website , take a quick look at all the delightful projects you’ll be able to create with this package, then click the pink “Get my copy now!” button to go through their simple and secure 3-step checkout process. You’ll receive an email with a login to their online access portal, where you’ll begin downloading your eBooks and patterns, signing up for your online courses, and redeeming your free bonus offers. Use their Getting Started Guide to pick the project or technique you want to try your hand at first and start creating! The most important detail, though, is that this bundle is available for just 8 days! (I told you it was short!)

After Monday night, December 4th, the sale ends and you’d have to buy all of these products individually. It’s even backed by a 30 day full money-back happiness guarantee, so you can make sure it’s right for you. Their customer service is amazing, and they truly want to make sure you’re taken care of and that you love your bundle. If you’re ready to spend more time making and unplugging from technology this season, this is just what you need. Create one-of-a-kind items to wear, gift, decorate with, and simply enjoy, with this curated, convenient, and super affordable library of patterns and projects. Learn more or get your bundle here

I don’t know about you but I am a HUGE fan of Ugly Christmas Sweaters. And I am not talking about those failed attempts at gluing and stapling bows or garland on one of Grampa’s old ugly sweaters!

Ugly Christmas Sweaters are all the rage and can be found several awesome places online. Some of My Favorites are Rage On,,  Teefury & Etsy.

Most of these places also carry super awesome t-shirtspajamas, and posters! I have also seen a few Ugly Christmas Blazers.

It has kind of become a tradition around here to get Ugly Christmas Sweaters or awesome graphic t-shirts!


One can NEVER have too many Ugly Christmas Sweaters, wouldn’t you agree?

So be honest, how many do you already have in your collection? Let me know in the comments below!

Tired of feeling overwhelmed and out-of-control?

Tired of feeling overwhelmed and out-of-control?

If you are anything like me then you are tired of feeling overwhelmed and out of control.


Life is Busy and chaotic and as a Blogger with a Chronic Illness, I am grateful for anything that saves me time and helps keep me organized!

I myself am constantly learning new #lifehacks. Dealing with chronic pain and anxiety I really feel the need to have things more organized and maintainable! I know you hear me!

I have better things to do with my time,

(like a nice long hot bubble bath )

not mindless time sucking chores or spending hours looking for something because I am just way too disorganized!

Honestly, I used to be a really organized person … like OCD organized but having a chronic illness, well life happens right?

Whether you’re frustrated by piles all over the house, feeling mentally scattered and unfocused, or your photos and computer files are a big ol’ mess, nobody wants to feel like they’re drowning in the details of everyday life.

If you’ve tried to tackle your disorganization, you’ve already discovered there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for organizing.

Let the Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle give you strategies and solutions so you can:

  • create a clutter-free home you can be proud of
  • add sanity-saving routines to your daily grind
  • organize your digital files (and photos, too!)
  • manage your budget like a boss
  • tame your unruly to-do list
  • eliminate paper clutter for good
  • use simple systems for a cleaner, tidier house
  • manage your family’s busy schedule
  • get meals on the table with less fuss
  • keep track of it all with a planner you love

Save time and sanity so you can have more time for the things you love to do and not so much of the things you don’t!
