DIY: Wall Art Christmas Tree

I was inspired to make this cute space-saving Christmas tree when I came across a version of it on Brit+Co.’s Snapchat channel, which by the way, is awesome and I can’t wait for it to come back on December 18! I didn't have any colorful paper on hand to use (aside from primary colored construction paper), but saw some holiday themed tissue paper for a whopping $2.99 at TJ Maxx so decided to give it a whirl and I think it turned out great!

DIY: Turkey Sweatband

During last year’s Thanksgiving, I came up with the idea to make turkey sweatbands to wear during the annual 5K Turkey Trot and amazingly, my friends agreed to wear them! Scouring the web for inspiration and possible tutorials, I only saw a variety of turkey hats, but no turkey sweatbands…. So I made my own tutorial!

This year, we are running it again and recruited some new friends into the group and they wanted to wear them too! A tradition has been born! Based on a few people’s comments about our sweatbands looking like Princess Leia hair (LOL), I made a few modifications to last year’s design, specifically around the placement of the drumsticks on the sweatband. Hopefully, this year people will be able to tell we are turkeys! ... although being mistaken for Princess Leia would be rather applicable this time of year…

First Time Making Croissants... with Craftsy!

I made croissants for the first time last weekend!! Five words to describe what that was like? Time Consuming But Worth It. Worth alllllll those butter calories, all 1 pound 4 oz of butter calories… >.< but let’s not dwell on that little detail… because when your croissants come out of the oven all golden brown, crispy and flaky on the outside, but also soft on the inside with all those puffed layers, you’re like… dang… This. Is. Good.
