I love this time of year! A time to celebrate with the people that you love. For me it’s also a time to give gifts that are meaningful and from the heart. Along with the gifts I love to make my own cards. It just adds the perfect personal touch when giving a gift. Today I […]

There is an extra specialness about this time of year.

Gift Tags! Heidi Swapp's DIY Gift Wrap Collection | @MaggieWMassey for @HeidiSwapp
Christmastime! The most wonderful time of the year! I really love every single thing about the holiday season…but most of all I love the gift-giving and the gift-WRAPPING!

Insta-Love Garden Journal

Garden Journal_featured
Last spring when I was at my mother-in-law’s house I noticed her walking around her garden with the journal I had made her three years ago.  It was worn and filled to the brim with all her notes about the previous year’s planting and harvest. I had to do a little search for that blog […]

Family Time Capsule

IMG_8435
I have always loved the thought of creating a Time Capsule for my family, but never really knew how to go about it!  Capturing some family memories and sealing them away for a certain period of time and then opening and cherishing how things have changed and how things may have stayed the same. Enter the […]

MERRY 4" Marquee Love Banner | @MaggieWMassey for @HeidiSwapp
Happy happy Monday! I usually don’t start decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving, but this year I have started getting things ready to go a little early. In fact, I’ve been Christmas-crafting up a storm, so the minute the turkey dishes get thrown into the dishwasher, the holiday decor can go up! And Heidi’s brand new […]

Ya Better Not Pout Heidi Swapp Mini Lightbox by Jamie Pate | @jamiepate for @heidiswapp
Ya better not pout! Words heard already from a parent to a child. Well, anyway, in this house. And often heard by my six year old. So it made creating a little night light/ Christmas vignette in his room even that much more fun. Michaels is now carrying the new Mini Lightbox. This particular Lighbox […]

Thanksgiving Inspiration | Wall Shape

Thanksgiving Wall Shape Inspiration | @MaggieWMassey for @HeidiSwapp
One week until Thanksgiving! Truthfully, it doesn’t seem possible. Usually, by this time in the year, we’ve already had our first snow. But this year we’ve had record temps…daytime temps have been consistently in the 60s and 70s (!!!) – which is sooo crazy! – and it just doesn’t FEEL this late in the year. […]
