A Christmas Home Tour OVERFLOWING with easy and beautiful ideas for holiday decorations. Love these simple & glam Christmas ideas that are perfect for stylish families!

Each year I struggle with posting a Christmas home tour. Not because I don't love decorating for the holidays-- obviously I do, hence the glam Scandinavian handmade holiday explosion!-- but rather it's because I strive to keep this blog a place of reality. And the reality is that I have two young kiddos and very little free time to spend fluffing pillows and arranging greenery for hours on end. There may be a season where that IS my reality; perhaps next year when both kids are in school full … [Read more...]

Teaching Kids about Giving Back

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Capital One for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. I've posted several gift guides over the past week, highlighting what's on our wish lists this holiday season. My kids' eyes light up when discussing what Santa might bring and planning careful lists of what they want to find under the tree. It's pretty easy to get caught up in receiving sometimes, especially when dreaming of LEGO mini-figures and Frozen dolls. However that's not the point of … [Read more...]

Easy Christmas Advent Calendar (great kids craft activity-- it's inexpensive, quick, and pretty-- what's not to love?!)

Popping in for a minute for a super quick Christmas craft: a stamped advent calendar that doubles as a kids' activity to keep 'em busy. As much as I love our photo advent calendar, it was getting tired, so on a recent shopping trip I picked up a few supplies to create a new one. Advent calendars provide a tangible way to countdown until Christmas morning, plus you can fill these little bags with either small treats or activities from this advent activity printable. BONUS: you can pick up all … [Read more...]

Tips for Amazing Holiday Photos

At the risk of breaking into song, it's truly the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it? There are so many natural, candid moments for capturing photos of the ones you love, with plenty of posed photo opps sprinkled in where (most) kids will usually smile-- on Santa's lap, opening gifts, hanging that special ornament on the perfect lighted tree. However since the days are short and the nights are dark, plus there's different types of lighting EVERY.WHERE., holiday photography can get … [Read more...]

Free Printable Advent Calendar Activities: cut into strips and tuck into your advent calendar for some holiday fun!

A few years ago I posted a free printable for advent calendar activities-- it was one of the very first printables I ever tried to make, and therefore, not the best. When my BFF asked for that link, I didn't want to let her down so I recreated it in a slightly better format. :) It's much easier to download now too, bonus! I didn't make it too fancy because you'll just be cutting it up in to strips of paper. Also, I added more than 25 activities so it's more flexible for your family (for example, … [Read more...]
