I love having our Christmas cards out for everyone to enjoy during the holidays. This year instead of adding the cards to our stair garland, I am displaying them in this weathered wood star box on our coffee table. My boys love going through the cards & so do I. How do you display your holiday cards?

For the past few years my girlfriends and I have a 12 days of Christmas gift exchange. I had so much fun this year putting together these fun gifts for my sweet friend.
Below are all my surprise gifts from my friend! I can't wait to open my first one tomorrow!

Every year I like to do a little something for my girlfriends. Last year it was personalized stationery from Designher Gals, the year before that,nail polish for their mistletoes, etc. This year I made these cute lipgloss ornaments.
I purchased a large plastic ornament, filled it with Babylips lip gloss & pom poms, tied a little ribbon on the top & added "Merry Kissmas" in glitter stickers. For those of you who have a Silhouette, you could add Merry Kissmas in vinyl but sadly, I do not. This was my best alternative & I love the way it turned out!
I made a more glamourous style for my Bunco girls & I will post that tomorrow! What gifts are you making for the holidays?

I'm changing things up this Christmas! I'm opting for a more simple display over my fireplace. I hung up this cute Santa that was in my front door wreath last year with a simple ho ho ho banner I made in less than 30 minutes with left over scrapbook paper. Cute & simple.

I love the look of vintage mercury class. I found these great ornaments a Pottery Barn which aren't actually antique but are still beautiful just the same. It adds a little sparkle to my front entry until of my fresh greenery comes them.

Yesterday we installed these cute custom pillows for our clients family room. I wanted to lighten and brighten the room as well as their dark sofa so I selected pillows of a fun pattern and background to add some fun and lightness to the space. I tied in the brown from the sofa in the small stripe of the mitered pillows which brought the whole look together. I love how it turned out! What do you think?

I am meeting my girlfriend for a celebratory birthday lunch today. She loves all things pumpkin so I put together some pumpkin treats for her to enjoy. I got her some yummy pumpkin body butter, a vanilla caramel pumpkin candle, pumpkin cupcake soap and some gummy pumpkins for a sweet treat.

Evere year I like to create a little pumpkin projects. Last year I created fox pumpkins & this year I did something more graphic. I adore Kate Spade & two of her signature looks are the black & white stripe & polka dots. Who doesn't love a stripe & a polka dot? They're classic, timeless & a perfect touch of whimsy.

Tuesday I hosted a cookie decorating class by The Cookie Loft Girls. I absolutely adore their work & was so excited to learn their secret tricks if the trade! We decorated Halloween cookies so I thought it was only fitting to decorate a little early for Halloween.
We had 14 participants & everyone had a great time! It was so much fun!

Last year I bought these cute spider papier-mâché candy containers from Pottery Barn kids. I use them to serve candy to all the kids in our neighborhood. I wanted to find another way to use them in my home till it was Halloween night. I bought a simple potted orange Kalanchoe & placed it in the spider container. It is the cutest & easiest Halloween centerpiece I've ever done!

Have you seen the House Beautiful kitchen of the year for 2014? I'm in love with certain aspects of it-the dark cabinetry with wood countertops, the herringbone pattern on the backsplash & subtle labeling on the kitchen shelves. It is a very masculine kitchen, dark, rich and handsome. However, I'm not in love with the lighting in the recessed ceiling. What do you think?

We are designing a custom entertainment center for my very glamourous client. We both love the mirrored doors & want to something similar on our piece. Of course weneed a bigger base with deeper drawers & more storage but I think it's going to be gorgeous!
