Artsy & Crafty!

Happy Monday! Hope you all have had a better Monday than me. It's been a rough day, but instead of boring you with those details, I thought I'd share what I've been doing to relieve a little stress!

A little arts & crafts time always did cheer me right up!

Sipping hot cocoa is one of my favorite things about the holiday season! I absolutely LOVE this idea of having cocoa mix & marshmallows sitting out & readily available! I plan to leave it out all winter long! Plus, I think it makes for a cute little decoration on my countertop!

For years, I have been trying to figure out a cute way to display all of the Christmas cards we receive each year. It seems that they either end up in a stack on the counter, or taking up a bunch of space on display! Well, not anymore! A little ribbon, a hole punch, & some lanyard hooks, & ta da!! I love it!

***I got both of the above ideas from my blog friend over at Clover Lane! She is so creative & I just love her simple style! Go check her out!***

I love spending time in the kitchen cooking, baking, & whipping up all kinds of yummy treats! I also find that it is way more fun to look stylish while doing it! I had some really cute fabric just laying around waiting for the right craft to come along, so when I ran across an online tutorial for this adorable ruffle apron, I knew it was a match! I am really pleased with how it turned out! I can't wait to make more as gifts for my girlfriends, & maybe even a give away here on my blog {once I perfect it, of course}!

Welp, there you have it. My stress relief for the day! Goodnight!
