DIY Baby Ornament - Kay Haupt

DIY Baby Ornament - Kay Haupt

Last Christmas, while we were out doing our holiday shopping, it was almost impossible to avoid looking at Christmas ornaments. Tad was only 8-months-old, and I wanted to find the perfect “First Christmas” ornament. Of course, most of my options were glittery, teddy bears, and goofy sentiments, which weren’t really my style. I wanted something a bit kitschy, with muted colors, and a hand-stitched look. Well, there wasn’t really something like that I could buy, and I knew that if I made his first ornament I would appreciate it that much more when I pulled it out of storage each...

Homemade Christmas present toppers Hey everyone!  My name is Lisa & I have a silly three-year-old named Oliver who loves ALL things Christmas.  When I was younger, my mom always decorated our home to the nines.  Every corner was filled with decorated trees, lights & little reindeer.  Even though I love all that goodness, our tiny apartment would feel a bit too cluttered, but I still try & make our home cozy & festive.  Our favorite thing in the house during Christmas is our tree.  Every year we have a tradition where we pick out one ornament for each of...

Homemade Christmas Ornaments

Hello, friends! It snowed recently where we are living, which would put anyone in that perfectly cozy, holiday mood. I knew as soon as I rolled out of bed and saw the big, chunky flakes falling from the sky that it was a day for play, baking, and making! A few of my favorite things. We pulled out some simple ingredients from our pantry and began to create some homemade ornaments for our tree. It's taken a while to nail down exactly how we want our home to feel during Christmas. We are definitely not extravagant, nor do we completely...

Holiday Sugar Cookies

Holiday Sugar Cookies

Hi, friends! I am so excited about the holidays this year. It took me a little while to gear myself up for them, but now that we've cut down our tree, brought her home and have some Bing Crosby playing on the record player, it just feels like the right time to get festive! My son is 20-months-old now, so that means he needed to be introduced to the art of making sugar cookies. Though most of our ingredients ended up either in his mouth or on the floor, it was still a great experience watching him explore each and...
