Grinchy Christmas Pajamas {guest post tutorial}

Hello SYTYC readers! My name is Catherine, and I blog over at cathgrace. My blog has a lot of sewing, decorating, and DIY, and I like to think of myself as a “maker” since I am always creating something. My family currently lives in S. Korea for my husband’s job with the US Air Force,…

It’s All In The Details….

So I have shown bits and pieces of my front door decor, but I thought I would actually get out the good camera and take decent-ish pictures (I didn’t take the time to edit them and the hallway lighting is bad and windowless) We live in a high rise apartment with a central area on every…

Decoupaged Christmas Tree Base {Tutorial}

Here is the before picture of the small potted Christmas Tree I got at the flower market, it was $38, and I like that it has lots of different texture in the branches (there are 3-4 different kinds of evergreen in this one.) I wasn’t very fond of the orange-ish red pot with it’s sponge painted…

Sheet Music Paper Ornaments {Tutorial Tuesday}

All the pictures in this post are cell phone pictures so sorry if they aren’t the best! In order to make cost effective and thematically matching ornaments for my front door decor, I turned towards paper ornaments. I started by printing this vintage Christmas sheet music onto regular printer paper, and once it printed I cut all…

Feeling Foxy {Christmas printable}

Pinterest In Action

I’m having a giveaway here if you haven’t entered it yet! So a few months ago I was given a wreath by the Osan Officers’ Spouses’ Club with the intention that I decorate it, and return it to be auctioned off at a fundraiser. The wreath was just a plain grapevine wreath that for some…

Our Christmas Tree

If you haven’t entered the giveaway I have going yet, go here and enter! We tried to put our Christmas tree up the other night only to find that a whole bunch of the pre-lit lights were burned out, whole sections of the tree were dead, and after fiddling with the bulbs, we came to…

Tree Skirt

I recently realized that I only posted a picture of the tree skirt I made a couple of Christmases ago on my facebook, so I thought I would quickly put a picture of it here, especially since I am changing everything this Christmas, so I had better get SOME mileage out of it while I can! I made this…

That’s it, we’re canceling Christmas!

So we have decided that this year there will be no Christmas in our household (well, NO is such a strong word, we will be putting up the tree and Christmas lights.) But instead of all the presents, and dinners, etc. we are going on a 4 day cruise to the Bahamas, a day at Universal Studios…
