Weekly Faves

I took a week off on the Weekly Faves because I actually had something to blog about.  Here are my faves for the past two weeks.  Can you see a theme below? :)

You know I love me some printables. Tatertots and Jello has a list of 22 great holiday ones for your downloading pleasure.  I will be downloading these from Mommy by Day Crafter by Night. I think it will go cute with my new Christmas Paper Ribbon.

Remember when I told you that I was loving Mindy Kaling’s new book? Thanks to reader Maria  who let me know Mindy Kaling has a blog! Basically, it is a lot like mine. Only funny.

Chickabug featured several Starbucks inspired cupcakes from salted caramel mocha to peppermint mocha. (Photo featured from Inside Bru Crew Life.)  Would love an afternoon coffee and one of these!

In case you aren’t on pinterest, I had to share these “elf” donuts from The Unconfidential Cook.  Seriously, could anything be cuter?  (They are really just cheerios!)  Ha!

This week at Infarrantly Creative Amy from Positively Splendid created the cutest homemade gift card holders.  I read the tutorial and I will be honest, even I think I can do this!

Jen at eighteen25 shared the cutest printable and recipe for a cheeseball.  Spread a little cheer – ha!

Ashley and Ken featured one of the most creative Christmas displays I have ever seen. It comes from the blog Not Martha and is a Christmas Tree mobile.  The ornaments are all hung from the ceiling. I am obsessed.

Swanky::Chic:Fete has a whole post an creative ways to serve appetizers this holiday season. I am especially loving this one!

Today I am going to try to attempt to get more Christmas gifts. I am so not on my game this year.  Any ideas for a grandmother?  Inlaws? Moms? Husbands? Leave your comments below!!

  1. Love all of this! Those trees out of ornaments are amazing! I had seen something hung from a chandelier like that one time. People are just too creative! :)
    I also researched for printables the other night! Love what you found!
    As for gifts... good luck! Those are the hardest people! :) (gma- I got a lounge outfit, MIL-boots she picked out :), FIL-shirt, Mom-boots too, hubs-nothing! We decided not to buy this year because we both got big bday gifts!)
