The forecast calls for the first BIG snow fall of the season starting today and all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch with a pile of quilts and hot cocoa. I have a feeling my fur babies wouldn’t mind joining in too.

Don’t get my wrong, I love everything about Minnesota, but could we just forget about  the snow and cold weather. If it wasn’t for family and our amazing thrift stores here, I would be packing my bags and moving somewhere that didn’t have temperatures below 50.

With the colder weather beginning I can finally start tackling some in-door projects that I have been ignoring over the summer / fall.

A few weeks ago I spotted this SUPER cute side table while browsing the isles at Target but goodness I couldn’t justify the price.

Not long after falling in love with the two toned  whicker side table at Target I came across this canned round piece at the Goodwill for $4.00.  Although the style is a little different I knew I could make it cute with a little paint.  And I mean … $4.00 vs. $63.00 !!!!!!

As much as I wanted to splurge and buy the side tables at Target I am so happy I waited and found something that turned out just as cute.

With November already half way over, I am starting to get real excited to dig out my Christmas decorations and start decking the halls.  I have a tradition to spend the day after Thanksgiving decorating so I am trying to hold off . Trust me it’s been real hard especially seeing everyone on social media .  To help my urge to dig out all my deers and putz houses, this past weekend I took a trip to Home Depot to pick out some new paint colors to use during the Christmas season.

I have some real fun holiday DIY’s planned that I can’t wait share with you !!!  Today I will leave you with some color inspiration.  What are your thoughts on non-traditional Christmas color schemes ??  I am loving a little pop of yellow, and well pink is always welcome !!!

Behr paint colors : Belfast M390-6 | Mid Summer Gold P280-7 | 100MPH P170-7 | Infatuation P170-3 | Sweet Chrysanthemum HDC-MD-10A | Bridal Bouquet HDC-CT-09

Incase you haven’t figured it out, I LOVE sending happy mail .  I mean, is there anything better then opening your mail box to a bright colored envelope or package sitting on top of all your bills and junk mail ??

Every month I budget a small amount to use for gifting and sending happy mail. Some months I don’t send anything giving me a larger budget the following month. Last week I gathered my supplies and wrapped up a few little gifts to go along  with a  thank you note .

 DIY Wrapping paper supplies :  Roll of white paper | Unicorn stamp | stamp ink

After you have gathered your supplies, roll your white paper out big enough to cover the package you want to wrap. To start I stamped  5 unicorns on the first row. Staring my second row I stamped 4 unicorns in the middle of the 5 from the first row.  Continue this pattern until you reach the top of your paper.

TIP >>>> If you don’t want to have tape marks on your wrapping paper use a small dot of hot glue or double side adhesive.

Along with my handmade unicorn stamped paper I also created a second wrapping with painted brush strokes. Just grab your favorite paint colors and go crazy!!!!

unicorngiftwrapLastly, I used pattern papers from Maggie Holmes collection, ruffled crepe paper and sequin trims to add a little sparkle and texture to decorate . On one of the packages, I used a scrap fabric strip as a ribbon and made a button using my button maker and pattern paper to attach everything together.

So are you ready to to add a little cheer to someones day !!! ?   It can be as simple as a handwritten note with confetti inside. We can always use a little happy mail surprise.
