Would you believe I’ve never done a DIY ornament post? So weird! This is an easy one, and it would make a cute gift. All you need is a boring ornament you want to monogram-ize, puffy paint, and spray paint. If you choose a matte finish ornament like I did, you can draw your design straight [...]
I nearly forgot about Christmastime while we were on our trip, so when we got back I asked Daniel to help me put the tree up first thing. While listening to good ol’ Bing of course! The dogs even get excited when we pull out the boxes of decorations and give them their Christmas toys. [...]
