Funtastic Friday #205

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Hoping to get the tree up this weekend.
The weather's been nice,
but on a cold day
I love a cup of hot chocolate!

My daughter and I will stop off at Duncan Donuts or Corner Bakery for a cup.
And hot coco stations are my jam!
Just love them. 
Kippi has got some fun ideas with friends...
all the 411 for putting together a hot coco bar.


If you're more of a Wassail person
check out our recipe
Mmm, warm spiced cider! 
Feeling like a warm cup of either right about now,
snuggling under a fleece blanket
with a good book or a Hallmark movie.

But first,
let's check out this week's Funtatic Friday!
Looking for all your fabulous Christmas ideas!

Funtastic Friday #204

Hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Are you a Black Friday shopper?
Do you start when the stores open Thanksgiving day or wait until Friday?
I must say, I'm not a Thanksgiving day shopper.
Just can't do it.
So I still go out early Friday morning--not really the same though.
My girls are older now, so some of them go with me.
A new tradition, 
shopping and out for breakfast! 

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, we usually start to put up some Christmas decorations.
I love Claire's Gingerbread Garland.
So simple, just made from cardboard boxes.
The kids would love to help put these together. 


Pulling out the Christmas Banner

Maybe the Joy Board board too.

The party is going live early this week!
Now it's time to show us your best Christmas ideas.
I can't wait to see what you link up!

Fabulous Finds- Christmas Wrap

Hey all!
Just scored some cute Christmas wrap and décor
and wanted to share these fun items. 


Bringing in more black and white with touches of red this year.


First up from the Target dollar spot.
Fun gift bags for just $1!
I love that black and white bag with reindeer names.
(might have to make something similar into a framed board)
There is coordinating tissue with the reindeer names, plus white and green in the pack. ($3)
And the red berries are glittered on the floral bag--just check out those cute mitten tags that come with it!
I think I'll use the clips to attach tags on presents. 
And for $3--this ceramic white house. 
I wanted one last year but they sold out before I could get one. 
I might go back and get the other style that goes with it.
Has as opening in the back to insert a candle--so excited for this find!


I've been looking for a white and black stripe ribbon to go with the garland on the staircase this year.
Thought the Magnolia section would have it but no wrap or ribbon there this year.
However, stumbled upon their new Sugar Plum paper line of products in the Christmas section
Just the ribbon I needed ( a little pricey but I haven't had any luck finding it anywhere else)
Sweet heart with gold dots ornament was $3. They also have initials in this style.
This was the last one, looking for more hearts to tie on presents. 


 Next up, Michaels.
I just couldn't believe that they had wool felt ball garlands, 6 feet for half off, making it $10.
That's a good deal!
I got a couple and while I was still in the store, went back for a few more of just red only,
but within those few minutes, someone had wiped out all the red and white!!
It also comes in multicolored balls. 
Can't go wrong with buffalo check ribbon--using this for packages and a door wreath. (half off)
And in their $ spot--white and brown craft paper wrap. Perfect!


Last stop, Hobby Lobby.
All their Christmas has been 50% off for weeks.
Picked up a new wreath.
Love the ribbon but might switch it out to buffalo check 
Stay tuned ;) 
HB always has all my crafting supplies
and gottal love it when ribbon is half off.

Hope you get some steals with your Christmas shopping!

Funtastic Friday #202

Hey all!
It's been a busy week prepping some boards and crafts for
a holiday boutique this weekend.
Next week I hope to pay some attention to our home.
Cleaning up and decorating.


Angela's added touches to a basic wicker ottoman was just the inspiration
I needed to work on finishing a furniture project for our family room.
And her neutral colors are just the thing for our Autumn/Thanksgiving décor. 


It reminded me of our chalk painted pumpkins
which would fit in perfectly. 
Are you ready for Thanksgiving? 
I'll be looking at this week's party for more holiday ideas!
Now let's go to the party!
