Movember Baby Shower

Being that it was November and a baby boy shower I thought it would be fun to decorate with Mustaches!!! The older ladies did not get it at all and thought it quite weird but the younger ladies enjoyed and appreciated the humor in it.

My New Boot Cuffs

 These just arrived in the mail today and I couldn't wait to share them!
I am super excited to wear them this winter and I am in love with the colors. These were made by Shara of  SharasCreations on Etsy and she did an amazing job.
I'm looking forward to trying different looks and combinations with them and for any of you who don't know what boot cuffs are, they are like a leg warmer but get the look but not the bulk or warmth. These are going to come in so handy. If you are interested in these I will put her link at the bottom of this post. Get your shop on people ;)

DIY-Christmas Newsletter

I'm not much for the Family Christmas Newsletters you give in Christmas cards. I love receiving them but just not a big fan of giving them.....until now!!!
On Pinterest I have seen a really fun new way of doing them and so this year I have done up my own. Below is the process of what I did to create it. I used PikMonkey for all of my editing.

I used a random picture, grayed it out and added this texture to it....
 I customized a collage and put the above pic in all the spaces for my background....
 I added some overlays for visual interest....
Figured out my titles for each section and put them in....
 And finally did my write ups....

I am LOVING how it all turned out but when I printed a copy to see how it would look (a)my hubby thought it was way too dark and (b)the texture in the background didn't really turn out. So instead of redoing it I uploaded it back onto PicMonkey and lightened it.

This one turned out much better when I printed it....

A huge thank you to the other two bloggers who have inspired me! If you want to check out their newsletters they are both pinned onto my Christmas board on Pinterest....

Christmas Touches

Nov. 1st seems like an excellent day to begin Christmas decorating....

The picture above is a new piece I picked up at Homesense(6.99) and I love the vintage feel to it. The colors are gorgeous. I'm not normally one to decorate with small village pieces but I just couldn't leave this one behind.

The birdcage(LOVE birdcages) I found at Michaels(half price) and of course I had to bring it home. It's really doesn't scream Christmas but I'm planning on tweaking it with some greenery and maybe a red bow.
