Valentine’s Day Clothespin Wreath

I’ve really had a blast making these cute clothespin wreaths. It’s an easy-to-follow “recipe”, allows for tons of creativity, and is a really inexpensive craft. In case you missed them, I also have a patriotic 4th of July version and a Christmas version if you want to check those crafts out. Even in the dead of winter, […]

Christmas Clothespin Wreath

After falling in love with my 4th of July Clothespin Wreath, I really wanted to do a Christmas one for the holidays. This one was so much fun to make and I’m so happy with how it turned out! Since I’m a visual learner, I took lots of snaps of each step to help you along the way. Here’s […]

Nutella Thumbprint Cookies

Anything is better with Nutella, right? Well that’s certainly the case with these little tasties.

When visiting […]

Honey-Glazed Ham

I love a honey-glazed ham over the holidays so when I see hams go on special at my supermarket I’ll scoop one up and do a mini-holiday in between Easter and Thanksgiving. Why wait? I don’t go too crazy–honey-glazed ham, mashed potatoes, and a veggie and  scrumptious Sunday dinner is served. While a pre-glazed and […]
