Favorite Posts Friday

Today I’m going to do something a little different.  I’m going to do a “mash-up” of all my favorite posts over the last few weeks.  Some weeks I feel like there’s something left to be desired from my posts, but then there are those weeks where I feel like the tips are so good that I don’t know what else I could possibly say!  I know with my busy schedule I don’t always get a chance to read all the good stuff out there, on my favorite blogs, so today I’m going to do a mash-up of must Pin posts in case you missed one of these this week!  If you haven’t Pinned or bookmarked these posts already, here is your chance!

To make it easy for you, I have placed a Pin button under each post {if you’re an email subscriber you will have to come to the actual blog to see the Pin buttons}.  Each of these buttons will Pin directly to the original post, so you don’t have to open each post to Pin it, you can Pin them all from this post!  Man I love it when things are made easy for me! {wink}

First up are my DIY burlap Christmas trees.  I was super proud that these turned out and I even got a Tweet from Ballard Designs saying they like them!  I was smiling from ear to ear when I read it!


 You definitely don’t want to miss this post.  My must have cleaning products list will make cleaning, before and after a party, a breeze!  I promise you will LOVE every item on this list, I know I do!


This white cranberry martini is something I look forward to every winter!  It’s the perfect holiday martini and it’s pretty too!  Whenever I bring the ingredients for this martini to a get together, everyone gets excited.  


If you ever paint you’ll definitely need to pin this post!  I always end up with paint on my clothes, even when {especially when} I’m being careful!  With this quick, easy tip you’ll never have to worry about it ruining your clothes again!


Most of you know we traveled to Tennessee a couple weeks ago.  After flying across the country with my 3 year old I’ve put together this great list of ideas for anyone traveling with kids.  If you have kids, or know someone with kids, you’ll want to pin this!


And last but not least here are 6 super easy, and inexpensive, DIY gift ideas, just in time for Christmas!  I’ve given all of these as gifts and everyone has loved them!


Here are a few of the DIY gift ideas, they would make great Christmas gifts!




I hope this post has inspired you and given you lots of great ideas!  Have a wonderful weekend!  Come back Monday to see all of my Christmas decorations!!!

  1. I’ve been reading your blog a few months now, and I somehow missed the Grandkids sign. Love it! I so need a sign-making class.

  2. I really like the mash-up/week in review concept for an end of week posting. Quick and Easy. Great info too all in one place.


  3. I have to repaint my kitchen cabinets and because they are kitchen they tend to have some grease/dust build up, especially near the stove on the upper cabinets, and would like to know what to use to clean this up before painting, any ideas/suggestions?
