Christmas craft and decoration Haul

If you've been hanging around these parts for awhile then you know I'm a craft lover. I can never have enough glitter, paint or coloured paper in my house. This time of year there are loads of things in the shops and I kind of loose the run of myself. I think I'm going to have to bring someone with me to slap stuff outta my hands. 

I know I'm not the only one that has this problem, right?

 I'm not sure if I'm going to leave these as they are or cut them up and make garlands with them. You can do so must with them.

The little house is something I'm going to have out all year round and I'm going to fill the little sleigh with Christmas baubles and greens. How cute are they??

I'm planing on wrapping everything in brown paper this year and going crazy with the ribbon, Christmas tape and markers pens. I LOVE wrapping gifts. 

 These guys are going to be cut apart and I'll make a garland like I did with my Autumn/Fall ones. You can find a picture of it on Instagram if you want.

If you're looking for Christmas cards for your little ones for their friends, go to Aldi and get there pack of 30. They're less then €3 and so cute. I really wish there was a scratch and sniff button here because those candles smell amazing. 

I've been picking up bits and piece with over a month and this isn't even all of it. I've got glitter, coloured card, fake snow, spray paint. Most of it is from Lidl or Aldi and my local €2 shops so it's not breaking the bank.

Where are your favourite places to get craft supplies? Am I missing out on a secret spot? Let me know in the comments.
Happy Hump day friends!

Letter to Santa round-up {free Printables}

At this Time of year, I love to add little bits of magic to make it extra special for my kids. I want them to remember the magic of Christmas when they have grown up. So that they can pass it on to their children and keep it alive for generations to come.

Home Inspo : Gallery Walls

There's something about gallery walls that just make a room look finished. It's a great way to display all kinds of pictures and prints from different times and they pull together to make a beautiful piece of art.

I recently got some amazing photos of my kids taken by the amazing I live in Ireland Photography. They are so beautiful. I want to put them up and show them off to the world. well whoever come to my home for tea and cake anyway. I also want to do another gallery wall in my kitchen on a big, blank wall. The wall is a blank canvas. 

I've been drooling over pinterest looking for inspiration and printables to make these walls the focal points of my home.

I've found some really cute printables for my kitchen gallery wall. It's going to be above our kitchen table, so they're food related. 

And last but not least, my personal favourite. This suits me perfectly and has to be on my wall.

Now that I have my inspiration, I'm off to buy frames and print off photos. 
Oh husband... I have a job for you!!

Happy weekend my lovelies!

Thankful Days Photo Challenge

Happy Friday Friends. I'm sharing something a little different today. It's still one of my favourite things but with a little twist. Last year I did #30thankfuldays2014 on instagram and facebook. It was my way of remembering what I have to be thankful for in my life. I loved checking the hashtag and seeing what everyone was thankful for. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Ireland but I do my own little thing in our house.

Now that my kids are getting older, they can take part a little more. I have these branched in my hallway. They get decorated with every passing holiday. Right now there are felt fall leaves, acorn bells (that I made and never shared, oops) and mini felt Halloween figures that I also made. 

Once Halloween is over, the branches will become 'Our Thankful Tree'. We'll cut out leaf shapes on coloured paper and write down things that we are thankful for. More about that later.

Anyway back to the photo challenge. Each day from November 1st, I'll be sharing a photo on my social media accounts with the #30thankfuldays2015. I'm inviting you all to join in. It's never a bad thing to remember the good in your life and what you've got to be thankful for.

I hope that you will join me again this year and share a little positivity around. Share what makes you happy. What makes you thankful. It can be anything. Nothing too big or small. 
Feel free to share the photo around and invite anyone you think will enjoy the challenge.

Have a great weekend!

Our favourite kid friendly Halloween movies

We love our family movie nights in our house. Popcorn, chocolate, big fire on and a good movie. I've got so many Christmas movies as does everyone else but today I'm sharing our favourite Halloween movies. 

Halloween is my second favourite holiday. I lave decorating the house and carving pumpkins. We've watched a few of these movies already. Some I've got on dvd and some are recorded on the tv. Tesco have a great selection at the moment and they're only €5. That's a bargain right there.

My favourite is the Addams Family. I've loved it since I was a kid. I wanted to be Wednesday Addams when I was younger. The kids are loving Monster House and Scooby Doo. We're sitting down to watch Casper later. It's a classic movie that the whole family can watch. 

Last year I did a photo challenge called #30thankfuldays2014. I'll be doing it again this year and all the info will be up here tomorrow. You can find out about it over on Instagram too.

Hope you are all enjoying midterm and Halloween celebrations.

What are your families favourite movies? Don't be shy. Let me know in the comments below.
