Saturday, November 30, 2013


I had so much fun making these and they were so easy,with christmas coming up these are the perfect gift for someone special and you can customize them. 

things you need
>jars I used mason jars
>fake snow 
>glue gun
>little figures found mine at walmart in the christmas section
>ribbon optional


glue the figures you choose to use to the lid of the mason jar, add your fake snow secure you're lid and add a bow and your finished :) simple as that. I also tried one with water and if you would like to do that jut add distilled water and liquid clear corn syrup. I hope you try these and had as much fun as I did making them, I think it has become my new hobby.

christmas tree

Tuesday, November 26, 2013











over the weekend we decided to put up the christmas tree! I dont know why or what made us do it before thanksgiving but I have really been loving everything christmas as of lately. Hank loved the tree and was scared of it at first, but then it soon became a comfy spot to lay his sleepy head. 

this time of year is always hard on me, being so far away from family and not being able to travel right now has really been sinking in.. thanksgiving is one of my favorites because of the food and everyone gets together! this year its different. Hubs and I will be celebrating our vary own thanksgiving  this year, and christmas which should be sweet and simple. how was your weekend? giveaway on the blog coming soon! :)

its beginning to look a lot like..

thoughts

Do you ever have those days where you just think. Not about everyday things, but really think. about life, the future, the past, memories.. well let me tell you today has very well been one of those day mostly about everything. Sometimes it just comes out of no where and sometimes it takes something to make you really really think to put things in perspective. that everything will all be ok. and it will all work out in the end doesn't it?

A lot has been on my mind as of lately, some of you may or may not know the main reason I started this blog, and if you dont know why i will try to explain. 

Life is too short and last year around august it really changed the way I think about life. I was living in arizona at the time and had got a phone call that someone in the family was not doing so good. someone close to me and very special to me. my grandpa. now let me tell you he wasnt just your ordinary old cute little glasses wearing grey haired grandpa, no he wasnt any of those things at all in-fact he was the very opposite. bad ass if i might add, at a ripe age of 60 and a true harley davidson biker with a beard tatts and a cool collective look to him, he had the best stories from his crazier days and I loved hearing about them, but beside all the "bad assness" he was actually very sweet loving caring and had the biggest heart, and a hidden talent which was painting.

 We shared a connection. a love for art. drawing. getting lost in a space only we would know. around the time I went home and found out he was not doing very well with only a few days/weeks to live. they had found brain cancer and seeing him that way was not easy for anyone. It really made me think. to cherish the moments It made me wish I took more pictures, wish I called him more, and said I love you just because I could say it to him. Wish I could draw with him one last time and he would tell me his tips and tricks. I started this blog shortly after he passed because I didnt want to wait to do something I loved. I wanted to live in the moment and not take life for granted and I think we do that too much.


there will be days like this.

it was so nice out today I had everything opened up, The smell of the fresh air reminded me of spring even though it has already snowed her twice now. I love days like these. hankers and I just hung out on the porch and played fetch as he rolled around in the grass. He also loves days like these. the trees are all changing and most of the leaves have already hit the ground. 

I know Christmas is only less than a month away and honestly i couldn't be more excited holidays are my favorite as well as that giant snow storm that comes right along with it :) where has this year gone!

a girls best friend

Monday, November 4, 2013

it seems like every time we take a drive out to the mountains we stay out longer than we should. This time we went out at sunset and it was so beautiful. the lighting was perfect and the sun was a golden yellow in the sky, hazing down on us as we played till dusk. This little buddy of mine decided he wanted to be a mammas boy and roam wild with me. he explored what he could and wasn't still the hole  time. 

He is truly my best friend. you never loved until you have a pet. I know it sounds corny. but its true from the first day we picked him out, and picked him up it was love at first sight. The way he looked up at me with those big brown eyes. that was it. right there. I knew he had my heart and I had his. Till this day on he always will be my best friend.
