Hello my wonderful readers,

How are you all doing! For today I wanted to share with you my top 5 favorite Christmas decoration d.i.y’s from Lia Griffith. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year and there’s nothing I love more then spending hours on hours searching for fun new ways to decorate my house. So you can imagine my excitement when I found this site as I was going through my Pinterest posts. Just one look at those adorable little owls and I was hooked. I went to the site to find out how they were made and after spending a good 20 minutes browsing around I was so happy to find even more fun d.i.y’s to do.

One of the things I really loved about the site is that the projects were so diverse and a lot of them I haven’t seen anywhere else before. It was really refreshing to see since d.i.y projects can over time start to get repetitive and boring.

So without further ado… here is my top 5 list!

Foam and Crepe Paper Owl


How precious does this owl look!! It would be such a great bonus gift to give to your family and friends.


Floristic Crepe Paper Poinsettias


These flowers would make such great center pieces or you could even place them on top of gifts instead of bows. There are so many different ways you can get creative with them.


Felt Ball Christmas Pillows


I was so excited to find this Christmas pillow d.i.y on the site. Not only are they super cute but they’re also simple to make and really inexpensive as well.


Glitter Paper Candle Wreaths


Such a pretty touch to add around candles. Gives them a more festive vibe!


Paper Evergreen Holiday Wreath


Christmas decorations wouldn’t be complete without at least one wreath to tie it all together. This one here is my favorite from the site because it has that classic feel to it and I really love the attention to detail of the leaves and cranberry’s.


That is it, those are my Top 5 Favorite Christmas Decoration D.I.Y’s. You should definitely check out the site. There are heaps of other decoration ideas for you to choose from and they’re not all limited to the Christmas theme.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. I really appreciate it and I really hope you got some inspiration and ideas from it! Have a wonderful week everyone, I’ll talk to you all on Monday!

The Christmas Tag

Tags & Contests & Awards

merry-christmas-01Hello my beautiful readers,

Happy Holidays to you all!

To kick of the holiday season on here I thought I would do the Christmas Tag. I have seen a bunch of people do this tag both on here and on Youtube and I thought it would be such a fun post to do. Let’s get into it!

1. What is your favorite Christmas film?

It’s a toss up between the first two Home Alone films and the Santa Clause franchise. I love watching those films when the holiday season comes around.

christmas movies

2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?

Yes. However I was in Serbia at the time so we didn’t celebrate Christmas on Dec. 25 but the 7th of January.

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?

I usually spend it at home with my family since all my cousins and other extended family members are in Serbia.

4. What is your favorite Christmas song?

My favorites Christmas songs are All I want for Christmas Is you by Mariah Carey and Carol of the Bells. I always get goose bumps listening to that song. The one I listen to is the version sung by Jessica Simpson, what version do you like listening too? Let me know in the comments.

5.Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?

No only on Christmas morning. However I have seen people buy pajamas for everyone in their family to open on Christmas eve which sounds like so much fun. I really want to start doing that.

6. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer?

Rudolph, Vixon, Prancer, Donna, Blitzen, Dasher, that’s all I know! Did I get any of them right?

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to the most this year?

We don’t really have any holiday traditions unless you count watching the first two Home Alone movies on Christmas eve. We’ve done that ever since I was a kid.

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?

Unfortunately fake. I would love to get a real one but it wouldn’t last long in the heat plus they are so expensive to buy.


9. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/sweet treat?

It would have to be candy canes. I always wait until it’s the holiday time to eat them.

10. Be honest: Do you like receiving gifts or giving gifts better?

While I do enjoy receiving gifts over the years I’ve grown to love giving gifts more. I love spending time putting the gifts together then seeing peoples faces when they open them πŸ™‚

11. What is the best Christmas gift you ever received?

It would have to be the Princess Fiona princess dress I got when I was little. I had just seen Shrek and I wanted to be Princess Fiona so badly. I would braid my hair like hers and I would only answer toΒ  Princess Mirjana. I was so happy when on Christmas morning I opened up my present and there was a princess dress just like hers.

12. What would be your dream place to visit for the holiday season?

That would be New York! I have seen so many photos and the whole city looks so magical that time of year all decorated in lights and covered in snow.


13. Are you a pro present wrapper or do you fail miserably?

I would say I’m an average wrapper at best.

14. Most memorable Holiday moment?

Me and my brother playing together with the toys we just got that Christmas morning.

15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?

I can’t remember exactly when I learnt about Santa but I think it was around the time when I wrote a really late letter to Santa {on Christmas Eve} telling him what I wanted, I gave it to my mum to send, which she claims she did even though I didn’t see her leave the house the whole day then the next morning when I woke up everything I asked for was under the tree. It was around then I started to catch on to the fact that Santa was in fact my mum and dad.

16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?

I do make New Years Resolutions every year and no I’ve yet to complete any of them. However I am sooo close to completing the resolution I made for this year {paint 20 paintings} so I’m thinking this is the year I finally complete a resolution. πŸ˜€

17. What makes the Holidays so special for you?

That would have to be my friends and family. I wouldn’t want to spend the holidays with anyone else but them.
