Winter Charm DIY Snow Globe (A Video)

I‘m so excited to finally show you guys this darling Christmas video! It brings to life a classic Christmas project, the DIY snow globes in my book The Inspired Room. Y’all know that if I’m going to do a DIY craft, it better be easy and turn out adorable with minimal supplies or power tools involved. :) That’s what I love about these charming snow globes!

This year I’ve really been savoring the process of gradually decorating my house for Christmas. Every day I add a few more moments of festive spirit all throughout the house. I’m keeping it simple as always, but I’m loving how magical the whole house is feeling! I can’t wait to share my Christmas house tour with you here on the blog. If you didn’t see my tour and Christmas video last year, you can see that here.

Whether you prefer to keep your Christmas decor subtle or you enjoy going all out to create a holiday wonderland, I hope you remember that your Christmas can be exactly what you want it to be.

You’ve heard me say there isn’t only one way to decorate and now I’ll add, there isn’t only one right way to decorate for Christmas.

If you’re keeping it simple this year with a few Christmas touches here and there, enjoy that! You can make the season special through fun experiences, warm drinks, festive music, Christmas cookies, wintery scents…whatever inspires you. Christmas spirit doesn’t have to come from your decorations!

If you’re wanting an extra dose of that magical Christmas feeling in your home, then go for it! Hang up a few extra strands of twinkling lights, add a Christmas tree to your bedroom, make paper chains, paper snowflakes, or a DIY snow globe!

Whatever your holidays look like, I hope they bring you joy and many happy memories.

Happy weekend, friends!

After all the meal planning and shopping we did for our Thanksgiving holiday, we are ready to just relax and chill. Well, except we have to gear up again for Christmas! We are thrilled to host family Christmas festivities at our house this year, so we are actually looking forward to it.

But in the meantime, we will need to eat. I know! Imagine that. Especially our teen son. You don’t skip or skimp on meals with teens in the house. Am I right mamas?

Interestingly enough, our son has picked up really good eating habits so he’s not at all a junk food eater. That’s wonderful, but it means we don’t have a lot of pre-packaged food in the house.

I’m pleased to say that he will actually MAKE meals if we have the ingredients on hand and ready to go.

That’s one of the many things I love about our Blue Apron deliveries. We can schedule farm-fresh ingredients for  delicious meals to be brought right to our door. It arrives in a refrigerated box so it stays fresh even you aren’t home when it arrives. It doesn’t get any easier than that!

Good food in the house means happy teens and happy mamas. No crankies!

This week with our Blue Apron ingredients we made Yellow Tomato & Basil Pesto pizza and it was SO GOOD! Everyone was happy.

Even Jack thought making pizza was a grand idea.

It’s such a relief to me as a busy mom when we are prepared and don’t have to scramble to figure out dinner. I’m usually thinking and creating all day for work so when the day is over, I like to be done! I just want to fix dinner and eat, not have to figure it all out.

The ingredients are labeled and pre-measured so you don’t even have to think. And there’s no waste!

You just wash and chop the fresh ingredients you need for that meal.
