I’m getting seasonal in the kitchen this week with a Christmas cookie sandwich recipe that screams holiday vibes. It’s a gingerbread egg nog cookie sandwich recipe that is super easy to make and tastes amazingly rich (in a good way). And to make things more interesting, I’ve teamed up with a bunch of my blogger friends to share their favorite holiday cookie recipes too…it’s a Christmas cookie squad.
When I was a kid, I would wrap the entire family’s gifts for Christmas…even my own! My mom would just wrap mine in simple paper beforehand so I wouldn’t be able to peek, and then I’d wrap over it.
So, it probably goes without saying that when it comes to gift wrap during the holidays, I tend to get a little extra, and try to dream up unique ways to present / wrap the gifts that I’m giving. Whether it’s hand painted wrapping paper or custom gift toppers. And this year I’m getting a head start with DIY custom fabric gift wrap.
I partnered with Martha Stewart and Plaid Crafts to create some unique gift wrapping ideas that even the most beginner DIYer can totally nail.
I’ve been making asymmetrical DIY wreaths for the holidays for the last few years (ever since this holiday wreath workshop I hosted) and have been seeing them pop up more and more each year since. They’re probably one of my fave things to make during Christmas time because they’re so easy and look amazing (and smell good too).
So, today I’m sharing a tutorial for how to make asymmetrical holiday wreaths using fresh flowers and greenry. Including a must-have material for keeping fresh flowers alive longer for your wreaths that you’ve probably never heard of. Intrigued? Click through for the tutorial.

I love making DIY ornaments around the holidays because they’re great gifts (if you actually make cute ones) and they’re usually super easy to make. So, this year, I made a whole bunch of ornaments to share and today’s is my absolute fave, so I’m sharing these first…
Terracotta clay ornaments! They’re super easy to make, super affordable, and actually look like something you’ll want to put on the tree (or add to stockings, etc). A batch of more than 20 ornaments cost me about $10 to make and they look like something your could buy from a cool local shop (bonus!). Click through to make your own.
Doing my best to stay warm and cozy this weekend indoors (it’s been really cold in Atlanta lately). And a handful of DIY ideas sound like a good thing to tackle for a low-key weekend at home. You with me? Click through for my fave DIY projects to try this weekend.
London is truly one of my favorite cities on the planet. There’s great shopping, amazing parks, cool museums, and loads of areas to explore. We just made our third trip back earlier this year and I’ve been meaning to share some of my favorite places to stay, eat, and shop in London while it’s still semi-fresh in my head.
Strangely, having been there 3 times and it being one of my fave cities on the planet, I have yet to ever share a travel guide for it. The good news though, is that I have a lot of suggestions now that I’m finally putting it together. Not to mention, Emma (who you’ve seen pop up in plenty of photos here this year) lived in London for six months before starting to work at Paper and Stitch and I added some of her fave places to the list as well.
Here are the coolest places to stay, eat, and shop in London, England.
I don’t know if it’s the fact that I just had a baby or that I’m just getting in touch with my whimsical side. But I’m really obsessed with oversized, playful pillows right now. And today I’m sharing a tutorial for a giant DIY monstera leaf pillow!
I love the playfulness of the finished piece, but it also feels elevated and stylish for any home. Not just for kids. Would make a great gift for the holidays too! Bonus…you can easily make a smaller (more responsibly sized) option too if you’re tight on space…or don’t have a use for a giant pillow. Haha.
