Christmas Family Photo 2013

Posted by Honor on Friday, December 27, 2013, In : Life At Home 

Merry Christmas Y'all! Hope it was a magical, wonderful, joyful celebration full of love and merriment of all kinds.

So here I am @ 34 weeks preggo, in bright and shiny red. JOY... but no really... JOY :)  . For all of my timidness getting my picture taken during this, shall we say, puffy time, I am full of joy and thankful that I kicked my but into the frame. Gotta be present and take part of the family right?! Not just stuck behind the camera.

And here is my family sans a few beloveds who we...

Apple Spice Almond Oat Cookies

Posted by Honor on Friday, December 20, 2013, In : Recipes 


   Today was a baking kind of day. It started out with the usual chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, then proceeded to holiday cut out sugar cookies and after raiding my pantry and finding the mulling spices dwelling oh so lonely in the back I decided to get a lil creative and kick the baking up a notch. The result? These divine soft chewy nutty apple pie-y bits of heaven. And major bonus... baking these leaves your house smelling wondrous for the next few hours!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all purpose...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted by Honor on Friday, November 29, 2013, In : Life At Home 

Hope you all had a magical, tasty and loving thanksgiving! Wishing nothing but health, wealth and happiness to you and yours this holiday season! I'm just bursting with love and joy (as well as at the seams of my pants) at the moment and wish I could bottle up this feeling and tap into it on a difficult day.

More on my sparkly gold table and decor to follow, but right now a nap and a cuddle are in order.

Love to my lovies!

It's Fall, Fall FALL!!!

Posted by Honor on Friday, November 22, 2013, In : Life At Home 

  Thanks y'all for being so patient! Just got back from a visit to the in-laws in IL. And burrr burrr burrrr! It was a chilly one there. But that's how we like it. Even more reason to hole (or whole?) up in the 'family compound' and just veg out. Let the babies run amok, eat some yummy game meat and just catch up with life. I must say that I am so very blessed to have such loving and kind in-laws, couldn't ask for a better pair!
   Here are a few snaps from our trip & early November . Wouldn't...

Ways to Get Out The Gratefulness

Posted by Honor on Thursday, November 7, 2013, In : Life At Home 
  
    Yes, you could say these thoughts are brought on by the impending holiday season. Or yes, you could say they have been brought on by the impending person growing in my belly. Either or, I feel that it's time to talk about it. Time for me to work it out. Time for me to verbally (visually? Typothetically?) let it out. What I'm talking about is gratefulness. How to go about getting it. Working on it. Keeping it. Growing it. I feel gratefulness is a muscle that must be stretched and worked...

Whew! October just seemed to fly right by! November is upon us and I am diving right in. Holla Holiday season!
I'm so so sooo looking forward to holiday baking, trying out a few new Thanksgiving recipes (Which I am hosting this year ....ekkkkk!!!), Christmas music, Christmas shopping for the littles and all the rest of the fun festive festivities that come with this time of year. I cherish this time as the littles are really starting to comprehend the 'Holidays' and will remember these times f...

Visiting the Pumpkin Patch

Posted by Honor on Friday, October 18, 2013, In : Life At Home 

   Queen of the pumpkin mountain, this feisty little one is ^^^^. Insisted on wearing her witch hat to the pumpkin patch and then proceeded to prance and jump from one orange orb to the next. Which in turn inspired bubba to roam around the giants mounds as well. Which I thought was adorable, but glares from other moms gave me the impression that they thought I was raising a wild pack of hooligans. Oh well.... different strokes for different folks. They are just pumpkins at a patch ya know?! I...

DIY Super Easy Animal Print Envelope Clutch

Posted by Honor on Monday, December 31, 2012, In : Accessories 






And I really mean it by super easy. Literally ten minutes to a fab new accessory (or make up bag, pencil pouch, diaper tote... whateves ;)

The key is finding these pre-cut squares of patterned viny from your local craft joint. I found these at Hobby Lobby for under a buck each. They were located in the felt craft area. They also have some faux tooled leather and super glittery rectangles that I am working with right now.
These vinyl like squares (not really sure what type of material they actua...

DIY Hand Stamped Wrapping Paper

Posted by Honor on Monday, December 17, 2012, In : Party Decorations 
Back into the swing of things I guess?! Crafting always helped clear my mind (aka distract me from the incessant thoughts and worries buzzing around up there). So what better way to distract myself than with the thoughts of my loved ones faces when I present them with these b-e-a-utiful hand wrapped lovelies.

I did a little experimenting today. Stamp experimenting that is. I did a few variations and this is the first one that I deemed fit to share with you. I tried all sorts of things to stam...

Gift Wrapping Ideas: Brown Kraft Paper

Posted by Honor on Friday, December 14, 2012, In : Party Decorations 


   Brown Kraft paper is my go-to when it comes to wrapping. It is such a great blank canvas. Lots of different possibilities. Perfect for any crafter to be, well, crafty :)
It is also a great big-o plus that it comes on a HUGE roll and cost only a few bucks. My kind of craft supply. So of course this year is no exception when it came down to wrapping and mailing out some Christmas presents. I rolled out my never ending roll and gathered together some accoutrements and got down to business.  I ...

Family Photos

Posted by Honor on Monday, December 10, 2012, In : Life At Home 

We had our first 'official' family photos taken yesterday. Yes, it was our first time. Usually I am behind the camera capturing all of our family's candid moments. I am no professional, but I have been pretty happy with the results. But finally I decided to hand the reins over to my dear friend Amanda from Two Roses Photography. She is just starting out and her talent & passion is just overflowing. I was very pleased with the results and can tell you that I am now HOOKED on family photos. I h...
