Created a Deco Mesh Wreath Courtesy of Paper Mart!

 I was sent some products to try out for free. All opinions below are 100% my own. 

Deco MeshI was sent a ton of Deco Mesh from Papermart.com to use! At first when I got the box I was in shock of how much they sent, their were tons of colors, it was like Christmas! My first thought was to create a wreath, I know lots of people use deco mesh for wreaths! I wanted to create a simple wreath!

Deco Mesh WreathI decided to go with black mesh, and then I found the letter “A” made of wood, and I painted it a pretty blue-ish color and wrote our last name on it! I thought it would be a fun wreath to have in between the holiday wreaths I have. Plus I have enough deco mesh I could make more wreaths for all the seasons!

I had no idea where to start, so I searched You Tube and I came across the Spring Geo Mesh Wreath Tutorial from Maymay Made it! I watched a few video’s and she was the one who I thought had the best tutorial! It was pretty easy to create, and it really didn’t take to long. I thought I would share the video, instead of trying to explain how to do it!

If you enjoy crafting you might check out Paper Mart! They have quite a bit of party supplies, packaging items, crafts and more up for grabs. It is a really neat site, and I am interested to try out some more of their products. I also was sent some tiny paper cups to make like bon bons and put them in, so I might have to whip up a fun dessert sometime for a party!

Do you enjoy doing crafts?

2012 Holiday Card

I am a huge fan of cute holiday cards! I love getting Christmas and Holiday cards from friends and family. When they have a cute family picture or a sweet note it makes my heart really happy. A lot of my family and friends don’t live in the same town as me, so getting a card from them makes me feel close to them over the holidays!!! 

Adam and I have been doing photo cards since we got married, and I think it is a lot of fun! Trying to find what poses we will do that year, and of course we include our little Ruger (d0ggy) in them! The picture above was from last years Christmas Cards we sent out! As you can see Ruger had to have a bone to feel like he fit in :-)!

Minted.com

 

Minted.com has an amazing 2013 holiday card collection!!! The one pictured above is just stunning. You can chance the color of the lettering, but I really love it with this pretty teal! I love the glitter and glam of it! One thing about Minted is they have exceptional quality in all of their products! I have shopped with them in the past and I am always taken back at how great of a job they do!!!

I grabbed a few of my favorite cards Minted.com has up for grabs this year!! I love the fun cute ones as well as the more glitter and glam cards! The bottom card is really neat as it is round and a lot different from a basic card. I love the modern feel it has!! 

Do you and your family normally send out holiday cards? I would love to hear what fun idea’s you have for this years family photo!! I am still trying to figure out what we will do!!!

We Will Be Giving Out Palmer Candy For Halloween!! Love the Snappin’ Skulls!

Hey everyone!! I just wanted to let you know that the product mentioned below,  I received for free to try out and review and/or received compensation for it. Regardless, all opinions are my own. Thanks so much for reading and enjoy!!

Palmer Candy

 

Halloween is almost here, so that means it is time for me to start stocking up on some candy ;-)!!!  I was looking on the Palmer Candy Website and went into their Fun Halloween Recipes, Craft idea’s and other goodies. They even have pages you can print to color!

Halloween Crafts

This is one of the crafts they share, and it has easy to follow instructions. It shows how long it will take to create and all the items you need to create this fun tower!! This would be really fun for a Halloween party ;-)! I think the Eyeball Candelabra is really cute! I really like this, because I don’t know if I would be creative enough to come up with something like this on my own!

Palmers

One thing I personally like about Palmers is that the chocolate taste great and it is affordable. I am really liking the Halloween Snappin’ Skulls! They have Pop Rocks in the chocolate, which gives it a little snapping effect when you eat it. I grew up eating pop rocks, so it was fun to see it being used in a fun way!! I didn’t tell Adam what it was and took it out of the wrapper to try and trick him ;-)! He knew it was pop rocks but it was funny to watch his face at first! I am going to give these out for Halloween as well as snack on some myself of course!!

Shop: 

If you are looking for fun crafts to do, or looking for yummy treats I suggest grabbing some of these cute Halloween goodies! You can buy at most mass retailers, and they have a search tab on their site where you can find a store near you that carries their products! They have some really fun stuff on their website, worth checking out!

Paper Culture Has Some Really Amazing Holiday Cards Up For Grabs!

Paper Culture

Tis’ the Season … or at least that is how I am feeling. I look forward to all the holiday decorations in the stores, fun gift sets and Christmas Music on the radio!! I have always loved Christmas time, and decorating for it. Well, here is something fun I want to share with you guys today!

I teamed up with Paper Culture and got to create my own holiday cards to have to share with all of our friends and family. I decided to end up making cards for my sister this year, with my beautiful niece on the card. We did a photo shoot awhile back and I grabbed my sister’s favorite picture and put it on a holiday card. It was super fun to do, and really easy. You just choose the design you want, upload a picture and then you can sign it with your name or whatever!

They have tons of options to choose from, and it was hard picking out which design I wanted, cause they are all way to adorable! They also have a lot of other holiday cards up for grabs! I just chose a Christmas Card!

Here are some other fabulous cards they have available: 

Happy Hanukkah

Hanukkah Cards

New Year Cards

New Year Cards

Holiday Invitations

Holiday Invitations

So as you can see they have a ton of different items to choose from, that fit anyone’s needs and style. If you send out holiday cards, make sure to give Paper Culture a look, and shop around and see if they have cards you might enjoy! Plus they have other options besides holiday cards, I just am talking about that mainly since the Holidays are here!!
