I am supposed to be taking down our Christmas tree.  Instead here are a few of my Christmas projects: 1.  Gift tags from scrap paper I made the blue ones from the inside of those envelopes that come with bills, I used a rubber stamp on the green one and both the green patterned one and the red pattered one I made from scraps of Martha Stewart craft paper from Wal-Mart.  The lace looking tag was made using a Martha Stewart lace punch. 2.  Ugly Christmas Ornaments I made these at Dandy Doodles, which is one of those paint your...

Did I mention I am an aunt?  I love my nieces and nephews a whole bunch.  For Christmas this year, Ben and I really wanted to give them cool presents that they would love and maybe be something they would keep for a bit.  One of the presents we decided to buy for them was The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.  Not only is it a wonderful story but it will hopefully encourage them to care about our planet. The Lorax is a really cute book that teaches children about environmental responsibility.  The...

I am not a fan of those "i need so much attention" brides or those "this has nothing to do with the couple" weddings.  I wanted our wedding to be so much fun for everyone involved and for our wedding to truly reflect us as a couple.   I have been to quite a few boring weddings with no activities for those of us who prefer not to dance, so when I saw this DIY Photo booth template over at Martha Stewart Weddings I knew we had to make it.  The best part about this idea is...
