• A Little Bit of Christmas & a Lighted Wall Tree

    December 14, 2012Holly Sosa

    My usual decorating on a budget tour will be up soon.  But these photos I wanted to share early.  It’s so exciting to see stockings hung & have glowing lights in the house.  I’m still considering wrapping that large piece of art.  I just think my belly has other plans. We only hang stockings for…

    December 11, 2012Holly Sosa

    Collin & I were recently lucky enough to receive our first ever Babba Box.  It’s a monthly subscription box & you receive a box full of rad projects & educational activities to do with your toddlers/young kids.  This month’s theme was stars/space.  It’s awesome because the projects come organized into their own little bags, so…

  • Elfing DIY with Pear Tree Greetings

    November 25, 2012Holly Sosa

    J & I have the sweetest neighbors.  They are always bringing over toys for the boys to play with & sneaking them Squeez-It’s on hot days.  Sometimes they bring their cat out to let the boys pet her & they always stop to listen to their stories.   I think elf-ing your neighbors is such…

  • DIY Thanksgiving Yarn Wreath

    November 21, 2012Holly Sosa

    I’m yarn wreath obsessed.  I love these suckers.  They are cheap, easy & so easily made personal.  My Halloween wreath was centered around the kids.  For Thanksgiving, I wanted to do my own thang.  So I went down to JoAnn’s & got my craft freak on. Supplies you’ll need:  yarn (obviously) of your choice, any…

  • Pumpkin Painting

    October 11, 2012Holly Sosa

    I have so many memories as a child of Halloween & October.  Sweet smells of cinnamon & pumpkin, the excitement of deciding what to dress up as, the fun decorations my Mom would always put out, Halloween movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas & pumpkin carving. The boys are too little to be wielding any carving tools,…

  • Chalkboard Project

    October 8, 2012Holly Sosa

    Chalkboards are everywhere lately.  Pinterest basically pukes them all over you when you open their site.  But I love me a good DIY & I love me any ideas where my kids can have an interactive aspect to their bedroom. My sister & I went to Hobby Lobby the other day & I about peed my pregnant…

  • Halloween Yarn Wreath

    September 19, 2012Holly Sosa

    I’ve been getting my holiday freak on lately, peeps.  I’m out of control.  The other night at dinner, J said to me, “I just realized it’s SEPTEMBER & you have our house decorated for Halloween.” And I smiled, beaming & replied, “Yes, I know.  This is me, baby.  You don’t have to agree.”  To which…

  • Halloween Spider Handprint Craft

    September 15, 2012Holly Sosa

    If you know me, you know that I am a holiday freak.  Any holiday.  I’m all about celebration & themes.  Right now, our house is being painted.  Every room is done except for our main living space, naturally. The problem with this is that my holiday freak flag can’t fly.  I can’t decorate my fireplace…

  • Yarn Wreath

    February 20, 2011Holly Sosa

    I’m sure you’ve all seen the uber popular yarn wreaths circling the blogging world. I instantly wanted to make my own when I first saw this tutorial´╗┐ from MrsPriss. I really don’t want to create my own tutorial. Use hers. It is so much better than my tutorial could ever be. The only difference between her…

  • Crafty Christmas

    December 9, 2010Holly Sosa

    Decorating for Christmas is seemingly impossible when you have a curious one year old to think about. Our living room is Collin’s, “safe room,” so I couldn’t have anything out that was remotely breakable, edible or plugged into a socket…which pretty much eliminated all of my decorations. Fun. We are on a tight budget this…
