Dollar Store Christmas Bell

This year I wanted some new ornaments, but I didn't want to spend much... luckily this year the Dollar Store had a pretty amazing selection!
BUT of course I couldn't leave well enough alone! 
 Gather some old book pages, feathers,  scraps of ribbon and lace, and some holly pics {also from the Dollar Store}

 Tie it all together and  glue it on and you have a fabulous handmade {semi-handmade} ornament!

Phone Interview with HGTV's Chip Wade

Are you getting your house ready for the holidays?? I know we are! SO EXCITING!!!!
Are you hosting a party, or having family come to stay with you?

Well I had a cool opportunity to talk with HGTV star Chip Wade about some small things you can do to your house to get ready for the holiday season!

I asked about weather stripping... because we want to keep the heat IN right?
I asked about expanding square footage by finishing off our attic as a loft.
And he told me about a new affordable toilet from Delta that has some pretty cool features... BECAUSE.. Did you know that toilet troubles are the number 1 catastrophe when hosting extra guests?!?

Here is the video if you want to watch and hear his answers to my questions.
