might try this…

other than the fact that our yard is under 3-6 foot snow drifts, and so sourcing the free twigs might be tricky, I think this craft looks kid safe, do-able (even for me!) and cheap.

more Christmas party planning!

After picking a poster, well, actually, before, during and after, picking the poster, i went around to all the businesses on or close to main street and started visiting!

and you all know i am good at that! ;)

the whole purpose of this event is to get our community (town AND farms!) to come together, share some Christmas spirit and fun and get to know each other and the businesses and owners in town. this day and age we are highly digitalized and so fast paced, this event is all about slowing down, enjoying things that have been Christmas traditions for years and have a great family night out! and who doesn’t want to do that?!

about 90% of the businesses were more than enthusiastic about this. we have so many ideas and different ways that they are supporting this, i have been overwhelmed! donations, activity planning, advertising help, etc, etc…it has been fantastic!

i started out with a list of ideas that i came up with (thanks pinterest!) and brought it with me when i met with the businesses. i figured for some they would want to be involved, but might not know what they would want to do. so i was ready with things to suggest like facepainting, different kid crafts, types of snacks, etc. most were happy to do whatever i suggested, one less thing for them to do! others had fabulous ideas of their own!! all i have been doing is making sure that there is not going to be any overlap. kids only want so many candy canes! ;)

these are some of the ideas that i had prepared just in case…

i wanted all the craft ideas to be short and sweet, no need for kids to have to take their snowsuits off or to be standing there sweating…all moms know, nothing gets madder faster than a sweaty toddler!

that’s it for now!!! more to come…and i can’t believe we are only two weeks away from this event! ack. so much to do, so little time!!

p.s. please don’t forget to enter to win yourself some fabulous jewelery!!!

AND happy belated thanksgiving to all my american darlings!!

Reader Request and Fall/Winter shopping all rolled into one!

I gots an email.

With a GOOD question…

Dear Fashion Guru,

Here is my current situation.  I’ve been creeping the pages of Pinterest looking for some insight into what to purchase for Fall/Winter that will carry me thru till the spring. I’m seeing lots of layering, and cardigans, huge chunky sweaters, boots, leggings. All things I’m a BIG fan of because I’m ALWAYS cold! So, if you had to suggest some KEY pieces for Fall/Winter what should I be on the look out for? Secondly, if you have some packing/travel tips. What should a girl take on a week-long trip to maximize space to allow bringing home more items!!! Thanks so much, can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

Becky

LOL…I like my new title. Y’all can refer to me that way from now on, K?!

Kidding.

Kinda.

Becky does bring up a good question though. What pieces are good from fall thru till spring. Because I know my bank account doesn’t support a full seasonal wardrobe change…and becuase I always feel a little weird wearing chunky southwestern-y sweaters in the spring. They look FAB in November. But come March…I don’t know. Am I alone in this?!

So, hmmmmm. Here are some ideas.

And if you all have any other suggestions…chime in!!!

military coat

First up, Military Coat. This trend has been around for a while, and looks like it will be staying. I like it. A military coat is a good neutral that matches pretty much anything, and can be layered to keep warm. I still wear mine in the spring without feeling too bulky or outta place…

plaid

And always a classic, and available in SOOO many colors and price points is the plaid shirt…look for ones that have colors that can translate to spring. Or if you find one that fits your body fabulously, buy it in a fall/winter color and in a spring color…

And this one combines a military coat AND a plaid shirt. GENIUS!

native inspired

And of course. Native Inspired. Love it. Always have, always will. Not easily translated to spring, but will truly never go out of style, so fall after fall you will be able to break this stuff out!

Ok. That is enough for today.

I will keep blabbing blogging about this topic later this week!

Wishing you a PINK Christmas!!

Every year I have a dream of creating a home filled with gorgeous, matching, color coordinating decorations…

Have all my Christmas cards out on time…

Do all sorts of fabulous baking…

Get the presents and wrap them early to beat the rush…

Create all sorts of magical and memorable events for the kids…

BAHAHAHAHA!!!

So, since I never do it in real life…I thought I’d do it in my “online” life…

Here is that dream…in PINK!
