It’s time to raid the garage, your dad’s old tool shed or troll your neighborhood yard sales. You are going to want to find an old, used, wooden ladder after reading this great post. Whether you have a home full of eclectic mid-century decorations, a modern home full of sleek lines or an old farmhouse filled with antiques, this post can offer you inspiration for turning that old ladder into a fabulous Christmas tree!
I’m pretty sure if I put one of these up in my home, especially one that looked like the one in the picture, I would leave it up all year long. I love the combination of textures, greenery, modern and antique that is juxtaposed together to make this amazing tree.

Decorating our home for the holidays is something we all love to do. The inside of our homes is pretty easy, decorated Christmas trees and Mantels, but what about the outside? I’m super excited to be teaming up with The Home Depot for the DIY Workshop in November. We will be building a Lighted Holiday Yard Tree, and you can too!
Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Workshops are great for anyone who wants to learn how to take on more of their home projects and upgrades. The Home Depot offers free workshops for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and experience levels. This Lighted Holiday Yard Tree workshop will be held across the country at different store locations, but I will be helping out at the Indianapolis/Castleton store on Corporation Drive (address below). I’d love to meet you, so stop on by!
The holiday DIY Workshop will take place at your local The Home Depot store! Here are the details…

Is there a better flavor combination than chocolate and peanut butter? Probably not! These treats are made with those two wonderful items and are perfect for holiday parties, gift giving or leaving for Santa when he visits.
These homemade pieces of deliciousness are easy to make and can be personalized with the addition of decorative sprinkles or by putting them into molds that fit the season. Who wouldn’t want a bag of these in their stocking this holiday season?

It’s 9 p.m. Everyone is in bed. You are sitting for a little quiet time. THEN, all of a sudden…down the steps bounds your 8 year old…he forgot that he signed you up to take a Halloween treat for his classroom mates!
Sound familiar? Oh yes…happened to me more than once!
So what’s a Mom to do? Run to the pantry and in about 5 minutes, toss together Candy Corn Party Mix!
With just a few ingredients, a bowl, spoon and microwave…you can have this Candy Corn Party Mix done in minutes and you can go back to your quiet time. It’s perfect to send in for Halloween Classroom Parties, give to neighbors, friends, even family!
I used Gluten-Free Chex cereal and Gluten-Free Pretzels, making this a great Gluten-Free Treat. There are also raisins, candy corn and fun Halloween sprinkles. And to hold it all together, and because chocolate makes everything better, I melted white chocolate Almond Bark. But you can certainly substitute whatever you have on hand or what your family likes best, using white chocolate is the best though.
To give the Candy Corn Party Mix for a gift, you can fill cellophane bags with the mix and tie with a ribbon. Or for a little larger gift, add the Candy Corn Party Mix to a jar and tie with a ribbon. You can find the FREE Printables over on the Halloween Printable Page.
Help your friends and family welcome winter in with a delicious cup of steaming hot cocoa or coffee with these adorable and completely personalizable chalkboard painted mugs. These will make great gifts for the teacher, administrative assistant, stylist or anyone special in your life!
The creation of the scallop edges with painters tape, freezer paper, a border punch and decorative scissors is absolutely brilliant! It really adds a nice pop to the mug.I’m picturing a cold winter’s evening, a warm cup of cocoa and a fabulous quote (or maybe a witty remark) written on each mug before handing them off to my kids, hubby or guests. Cheers!
