Printable Christmas Song Bingo

Are you of the opinion that Christmas music shouldn’t start until after Thanksgiving? Or are you hopping on that one-horse-open-sleigh as soon as the air turns crisp?  Either way, those holly jolly tunes seem to make everything a bit more magical during the holiday season. This year we’re celebrating some of our all-time favorite Christmas songs–and you better believe Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You is on my list. We’ve teamed up with Sony to create a Christmas Song Bingo game with their holiday playlist this year, a dream come true collaboration. Trust me, this playlist is THE soundtrack of the season, full of beloved classics and recent pop renditions.

Applique Tree Skirt Hack

Applique Tree Skirt HackRebecca here. The moment I laid my eyes on this Christmas tree skirt from Anthropologie, I started to make plans on how I was going to make a DIY version. It’s a maximalist’s dream! The colors, the sparkle, the textures–I was hooked. I spent the most time scouring the web for embroidered appliques and patches that would work well on the skirt. All of them were reasonably priced and available on amazon prime (score!). Once you have all your materials, the process of actually making the Applique Tree Skirt is fairly simple! Though you do need a sewing machine for the base of the skirt, I applied all the appliques with fabric glue: a much faster method than sewing. This is such a festive tree skirt and certainly heirloom quality. You can certainly customize the looks with your fabric choices and different applique selections, so have fun with it!

Heirloom Journal Tips

Are you a seasoned pro journaler? Or maybe you’re a novice just wanting to get started. Either way, our Promptly Journals are perfect for everyone, providing you with guidance and direction so you won’t be stumped on what to write. We’re talking with penmanship extraordinaire, Melissa Esplin, to teach us how to improve our penmanship perfect for a journal that will stand the test of time.

While we’re at it, wee will be showing you how to utilize the marbled paper journal cover packaging. The paper was just too pretty to throw out so we turned it into a bookmark! Simple cut the top and bottom folds off and glue the front and back together. We punched a hole on top and added a crepe paper tassel to make it a special. It’s the perfect way to mark your place in your journal!

DIY Wood Coat Rack

DIY Wood Coat Rack

We’ve got a slew of “craft aprons” that I’ve been wanting to hang up for ages but kept putting it off. With the announcement of Fiskars new DIY Product line, I knew this was the perfect opportunity! This DIY Wood Coat Rack will only set you back $10 and looks SO much cuter than plastic stick-on hooks. You can customize the paint colors to fit your needs (we rainbow’d ours, of course), and with the new tools from Fiskars, it’s a breeze to put together. I’m already making plans to make one for my home!

Fooled Ya! DIY T-shirt vinyl Collection

Are you familiar with Trompe-l’oeil? It means “deceive the eye” in French for those linguists out there. It’s a technique that makes a painting or design appear three-dimensional through optical illusion. The technique originated in the Baroque period and it’s still going strong today! When brainstorming our second T-shirt (If you missed our Matisse T-shirt line, make sure you check it out), we wanted to create whimsical Trompe-l’oeil-inspired designs, and that’s what the ‘Fooled Ya! T-Shirt Collection’ is all about! No need to add too many additional accessories because these shirts include them for you, Take a look at all the designs and let us know which one is your favorite!

Take a look at all the styles and download the templates to make your own!
