Pretty, isn’t she? Meet my new Christmas star. She’s currently adding a bright touch to my holiday mantle. And cheering up the house in general.

I have Christmas on my mind these days. It’s a little early for me. Usually I don’t really start thinking about the holidays until either the snow hits or December 1st arrives – whichever comes last. But this year, I’m already in the holiday mood. We’ve had our first snowstorm, and my Christmas-loving youngest is […]

Whacky Kids And Their Christmas Presents

This is what happens when you have a teenager with a sense of humour. I’m having a little Christmas 2013 flashback today as I pack up a few things. Here’s one of the things that we found tucked under the tree this year: It’s part of our household tradition of giving something handmade. This started […]


I Made A LOVE Blanket. You Can Too.

I made a blanket for Christmas. An entire blanket. Yes I did. I am not a knitter. I have no idea what I was thinking. I only did it because no one stopped me. There was no experienced knitter around to say “Are you crazy? Stop that!” Because a blanket takes lot of knitting. About […]

The Easiest Christmas Craft. Maybe Ever.

This is the easiest Christmas craft, maybe in the history of Christmas crafts. I’m pretty sure of it. And it might be also the cheapest, although I couldn’t guarantee it. It’s definitely the most environmentally friendly, because you can scrub your pots with your cute little trees after the holidays are over. We featured these […]

Loving Minted: A Gift Roundup

I’ve got holiday shopping on my mind these days, and I’ve learned to avoid the big malls as much as possible. Just the sight of the overfilled parking lots is enough to scare me away. I like to hit up local craft fairs, and hunt for some unique finds in my favourite vintage stores. And […]


The Best Christmas Present

I’m going to my weekly pottery class tomorrow. I’ve been taking pottery for many years now, sometimes a little more seriously and sometimes a little more casually. This time it feels different, though. Kind of heartbreakingly different. Heartbreaking in a really good way. Like when something unexpected and beautiful happens that makes your heart crack […]

People, get out your scouring pads!  This is seriously green decorating. These adorable little mini-trees are just standard kitchen metal scouring pads that have been pulled […]


Some Gorgeous Packaging

I thought I’d revisit the post I did last year on my friend Cathy’s beautiful popcorn packaging to get you inspired in case you’re planning on any food gifts of your own. Some of the boxes she used came from Creative Bag, where I usually get my wrapping supplies (see my Wrapping Supply Score post). […]


1 Mantle 4 Ways

Here’s another look at the mantle decorating play date Nads and I had last year. We had some fun one day styling my fireplace mantle using a few finds from HomeSense mixed in with some things I already had. I always keep my eyes peeled for great looking Christmas pieces that I can use in […]

Love the raw, natural look of birch candleholders? Have you seen these in upscale gift stores? Now you can make your own!

Santa Says: Time To Get Your Advent Calendars Out

We’re a Playmobil advent calendar family. Back when the girls were young, there weren’t as many pretty and creative advent calendar options out there. Or at least I couldn’t find any. The internet was still a baby and my Christmas DIY skills involved mainly spray painting walnuts gold and hanging them around the house. So […]


Smells Like Teen Christmas Spirit

I wanted to share a story with you. It’s about a group of remarkable teenagers and this amazing crafting project they undertook this Christmas. Definitely not the usual kind of story you read about teens these days. Something heartwarming to think about next time you hear someone talk about the problems with today’s teenagers. And […]


Resin Jewelry Presents

My handmade Christmas gift this year for my girls was a little collection of 3 pendant necklaces, perfect for layering. This was a great opportunity to learn how to work with resin, which has been on my to-do list for a while. I thought it would be great to make them personalized necklaces, and why […]


Fairy Ornaments

We have a tradition in our family of making each other Christmas presents. We started this years ago as a way of simplifying things, but in fact it often leads to just the opposite – a crazy, last-minute flurry of activity around the house as people hide out in various rooms trying to finish up […]


Birch Logs Do-Over

The other day I had some fun re-using some of the decorative pieces from our Christmas mantles to create vignettes in other areas of the house. An antique sideboard in my living room seemed a perfect place for a rustic display, so I created an arrangement with my set of handmade
