DIY Christmas Sweater

DIY Christmas Sweater

    Hubs has been asking for a Christmas sweater for several years, and every year I avoid the topic because I didn't feel inspired to make one.  Well just over a week before Christmas and I got a great plan to just go to the store and figure it out, without feeling the creativity. I headed to Secret Seconds in Missoula, which is one of my favorite spots to find second-hand items, and Hubs found a sweater at was heavy enough to hold up a bunch of Christmas awesomeness.  I Continue reading

A Cupcake Liner Christmas Theme

A Cupcake Liner Christmas Theme

I couldn't help myself, I had to go with another theme this year for our Christmas tree.  Last year after 2 themes and 2 trees, I did promise Hubs that this year would be theme free....and I failed.  I just got this idea in my head and I had to see it through.

Thankful for Health, Happiness and Home #30DaysofThanks

Day 14 - 22 It has been 2 years since Hubs left active duty and jointed the Montana National Guard.  I am so thankful that he has the opportunity to go back Continue reading

More 30 Days of Thankfulness #30daysofthanks

I sat down at my computer today to work on another blog post that I have been meaning to write when I came upon comments waiting to be approved for my Day 5 30 Days of Thanks post.  One of the lovely ladies I worked with in Colorado had stumbled upon it and left a comment, which was amazing because that day was all about lasting friendships.  Reading it reminded me that I was a bit behind in my quest for 30 days of Thankfulness and so I find myself here thinking about all of the people I have Continue reading
