Creative Card Display

After years of all my Christmas cards getting jumbled on a small holder, I decided it was time to spread the love!

This is an easy and inexpensive DIY card display - all you need is some garland and clothes pins. 

I wrapped my garland around the banister of my staircase, added lights and my family stockings. Then, simply clip the gorgeous cards from your friends and family straight to the garland! Viola!


I even added some ribbon tape to a few clothes pins to mix things up.

I just discovered the coolest site where you can make your very own subway art: Wordle.  Check out what Wordle created using our blog link:

Sums us right up, doesn't it?

Weekend Round-Up: Shop and Sip Holiday Trunk Show

Lots of planning and preparation make for a fabulous show.  Our First Annual Shop and Sip Holiday Trunk Show was such a success that our venue, A Cup of Organic, asked if we would like to host another show in the near future.  Our response?  Absolutely!  But after the holidays, of course!  We definitely need a little time to rest and re-energize (not to mention CREATE!) 

We were so thrilled to see the beautiful items from our friends and co-vendors Laci Jean, Lemon and Lavender, Courtney Vickers Photography, Sweet Whimsy, and Bear Booty Boutique.  We were also beyond excited to have such a great turnout.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by and shopped! 

Supporting local merchants (and in the case of Shop and Sip--MOMprenuers) puts money back into your local community.  Individuals and their families directly benefit from your support and you end up with beautiful and unique items that are handmade with love ♥.

Here are some photos from the show:
