Top Posts of 2016

Isn't it crazy that this year is almost over?!  I don't know what happened in this year, I look back and think about all the crazy things that have happened over the year.  We have done a lot and it has been a good year but also a rough one.  I'm excited to start a new year and to see what it brings for us!

I have been blogging for 7 years now and I have a LOT of things that I have made.  It's always fun to see what posts do well and what ones don't do as well.  I just wanted to share with you the Top 10 posts of the past year, the ones that were popular :).

DIY Etched Personalized Christmas Glasses

This post contains affiliate links.  

Last year I started a family tradition for our family.  Instead of getting holiday dishes, we are making our own!  And each year we add to them just a little bit at a time.  Last year we started with the plates (which I absolutely love!) and now this year we did the glasses.  I think eventually we will do a dessert plate and then a placemat and that will probably be about it :).  I love how these glasses turned out!  I let my kids each pick out a design/shape and then they helped me put the vinyl on, but then I did the rest.

Neighbor or Teacher Gift Idea- Hot Chocolate Mason Jar Snowman

This post contains affiliate links.

When I think about neighbor gifts at Christmas time, I think about all the sweet baked goods and sweets that people give me.  But for me, the one thing that screams winter is hot chocolate. We are having an especially cold winter this year (already....) and so I wanted to make something that could really warm up my friends.  And of course I can't just give out hot chocolate, I needed to make it into something cute.  So I did just that and I love how they turned out!

Snowman Candy Bar Neighbor or Teacher Gift with Free Printable

There are affiliate links in this post. 

Every year I try to give out neighbor gifts to all the friends that we have.  I usually try to do something simple and fun so I can make several of them.  I had a hard time coming up with something this year.  I finally came up with something and I'm so excited to share it with you.  These snowman candy bars are so fun to make and turn out so cute!  Plus I made a printable for you to make it even easier on you!  These make great teacher gifts too!

Tree Classics Park City Pine Snap Tree™

Disclosure: I was given product for this post, all opinions are 100% my own.

The month of December is always crazy busy for us.  With all of the Christmas parties, concerts and then all of the other things that we have to do to get ready for the holiday, every thing is little more stressful.  Some years even putting up the Christmas tree can be a huge hassle and take for-e-ver! Seriously, it can be so annoying.  There have been years that we have been putting up our tree and then learn that we were missing a branch or the lights were broken or something like that happened.  Well this this snap tree is different, you can put it up in a snap (see what I did there :D) and it looks so beautiful!
