Christmas Ornaments

Have you decorated your house for the holidays yet?
I'm almost done, only the Christmas tree missing!

I always have a different color theme for my tree every year, and
that means I have a lot of different christmas ornaments.


One way to display your left over ornaments is to put them in a 
big bowl, and you can even put some christmas lights in there.



The cutest little gingerbread heads ever

Don't you all just love the blog Bakerella? She makes the cutest
cookies and cake pops! I just love love love this idea of decorating
plain old gingerbread cookies and make cute snowman faces,
adorable!





Are you planing on making your own gingerbread cookies 
this year? I was thinking maybe I'll try these out but..
I'm also going to try making these awesome mini gingerbread houses!




You'll find instructions and even a template over at the
lovely blog Not Martha.

Baby countdown... 38 days to go!

We're getting closer and closer everyday!
Imagine there is just over a month until my due date!
So exciting! I bought almost everything I need for the baby
already, I've unpacked all of my sons "old" baby clothes,
and man are they tiny! It's hard remember him ever being
that tiny!

So I'm expecting a new years eve baby but I'm kinda
hoping my little one will hold on for a day or two,
so he/she won't have to be the last one of all its
friends to celebrate a birthday, take a drivers license,
etc etc..

This was me this summer, my bump is 
way bigger now lol ♥

Big Christmas tag using paper doilies

If you're anything like me you think the wrapping of your
Christmas gift is just as in important as the gift itself.

I'm always trying to come up with new fun ways to
wrap gifts, and I decided to make a fanflower
using paper doilies glued together with a glue gun
and add a gift tag on top.


Yum Yum Give Me Some! DIY Popsicle Brownies

Oh My! How yummy do these Popsicles brownies look?
I'm going to make some myself for the holidays and I'm planning
on dipping them in white chocolate and adding some glitter
sprinkles on top to give them a Christmas look.

I also imagain you could put some gingerbread spices in
the brownies and you'll have gingerbread brownies instead!

Winter apples for the birds DIY

We're almost at the middle of November and it's starting to get colder
outside. This also means a lot of birds that may need a bit of help
finding food. An easy way is to combine some bakers twine,
apples and cinnamon sticks to make a fun little bird feeder.



Thread the bakers twine trough the apples and attach a cinnamon stick on top and one on the bottom. Voila! 



Do you usually put out food to help the birds survive winter?
