Tip Tuesday - Pinecones

While cleaning out my craft supplies, I found MORE pinecones.  Who knows why I had so many, but I couldn't throw them out!  Here is what I came up with to use up a bunch.......

All you need is a glass vase or container and fill it with pinecones.  I had a bunch of different sized ones.  Then I took a scrap piece of ribbon and tied it around the vase in a bow.  I love how it looks and it filled an empty space on a coffee table!  Now hopefully I won't find any more pinecones while cleaning!

Tip Tuesday - Vinyl Holiday Touches

The holidays are quickly approaching!  As you know, I love this time of year and decorate like crazy!  Here are a few easy and inexpensive ways you can use vinyl to add touches of holiday to every part of your house! 

For Halloween I made a vinyl spider web with my Silhouette and placed it on the back of the toilet in the boys bathroom.

Now for Thanksgiving I changed it to a turkey......

My little guy loved it and couldn't stop smiling! 

Then on my front door I used a copper vinyl and added the words "Give Thanks" to the door.   I am in love with how it looks!

You can use vinyl in so many ways to add special touches to your home for the holidays!

Easy Coffee Cake

I am a big fan of breakfast, love it more than lunch.  My boys are not big breakfast eaters but they do love coffee cake!  I found this recipe for coffee cake on Lil Luna. It is so easy and soooo yummy!  My hubby and boys even had some for dessert!

Here is a link to the recipe!  Quick Coffee Cake

The only things I changed were to increase the cinnamon to 3 teaspoons and the brown sugar to 2 cups.  (We like things sweet!)

YUMMY !!!!!!!!
