Since Christmas is right around the corner, I thought I’d show you my living room’s holiday makeover I did with Walmart!

This year Christmastime will bring so many gifts to my family and I! During the Christmas season we’ll be welcoming our fifth baby boy into our family and I will finally get my boot off of my broken foot and be able to walk again! YAY! How’s that for an eventful Christmas!? To get into the spirit, I headed to JOANN and grabbed some festive items to give my front porch a makeover!

  • Unique Gift Card Gift Idea with The Home Depot

    Hello dear friends! The fun holiday projects continue! Today we’re partnering with The Home Depot to bring a really fun twist on gift card giving! We would honestly be thrilled out of our minds to receive a Home Depot gift card for Christmas so naturally, we want to give them away too! Look at all of the adorable holiday designs on the Home Depot gift cards! They also have a ton of cute designs for eGift cards if you’d rather email one to someone; always a good idea! PS All gift cards are reloadable. We had this idea to do a play on numbers by using a combination lock.  We got our padlock and checked the combination on the back of the lock and bought 3 gift cards in those denominations. Our combination used the numbers 27-33-13 so we got a gift card for each of those amounts. Here’s how we did it! Materials: 3 Home Depot gift cards (mix up the designs for fun!) 1 gallon empty paint can metal chain combination padlock vinyl numbers tissue paper (optional) First,…
