I’m kicking of a new series: Handmade Holidays to share some crafty ideas for making DIY presents this year.
First up, some festive bottle stoppers! I bought plain, unfinished bottle corks in the kitchen section at Target and colored in the stopper with a silver metallic Sharpie, followed by a light brush of glue and matching silver glitter. Once they dried all you need is a drop of super glue to hold an ornament in place on top of the stopper! These took under an hour to make, and cost less than $10 to make the whole set — I think they’d look great tied to a bottle of wine for a hostess gift during the holidays!
Just a few more pictures of my lovely party to share and then I’m ready to kick of 2010 with a bang. I’m bad at keeping new years resolutions, but this year I’m going to try really really hard to care less about what people think of me. Easier said than done! And I’m also going to try and grow my hair out for Locks of Love,. Do you have any New Years Resolutions? Do tell.
Triple the cocktails, triple the fun! I’m totally amazed that A) this exists, and B) someone didn’t think of this sooner. What a helpful tool for pre-mixing multiple signature cocktails for a holiday party. My old carafe method seems a little less innovative now!
Last week I was seeing the world in black and white… black and white houndstooth that is. Everywhere I looked the classic pattern was popping up! I saw this delicious pair of chairs at HomeGoods…
And was inspired to break out my houndstooth dress to wear to work for a Fall look.
Which led me to realize how versatile the black and white pattern can be… my search turned up tons of inspiration that I bookmarked. It’s such a crisp, timeless pattern.
I’m cranky that I’m at work and not heading back to school with a crisp new package of loose-leaf paper in my Lisa Frank trapper keeper.
Being a grown-up can really stink sometimes… except for when I remember that grown-ups get cocktails.
Perhaps the best of both worlds would be a Pimm’s Cup in this notebook paper inspired glass? Yes, I think that’s a fair compromise.
