Ruffle Christmas Gift Tag

We are a plaid/flannel family. I wear and love it. Micah’s whole wardrobe is mostly comprised of it and now our boys are starting to love it, too! So when I saw that Target was all about the plaid this year I was thrilled! They really brought it home with plaid tissue paper. Yes, tissue paper like the stuff you put in gift bags. Of course just putting some in a gift bag is fab but I wanted to go for divine..

Grab your sewing machine and let's make some Christmas Gift Tags!

Pardon me while I toot my own horn…toot! Toot! But these are Christmas tag perfection!

Spookly Square Pumpkin Treats

We saw Spookly The Square Pumpkin for the first time last year and Kell was BUH-NANAS about it! Seriously, every place we went he would say, “I saw Spookly Square Pumpkin on Disney Channel.” A friend of mine thought it was so cute and remembered his Spookly love and made sure to text me when it was on the Disney Channel this year so I could DVR it.
