Paperclip Angel Christmas Ornament

I was blog hopping today and came across this easy DIY paper clip angel. I thought it was so clever, simple, and a great craft for kids .... I just had to share it!

For step by step instructions visit

Now that the kids are going back to school, what a great gift this would make for their teachers around the holidays!

P.S- I was thinking it would be very easy to spruce this up even more with some paint, glitter, fabric wrapped around the body, anything really...the possibilities are endless!

Thanks Noreen Doll with for sharing this idea!

Autumn Wreath

Too soon? Well maybe just a little, but what the heck, why not?!? 

I made my first autumn wreath the other day and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out! Its simple and little, but has a very big presence.

I'm planning on making more, but don't worry I wont put up my fall decorations just yet. I'm still trying to live in the moment, remember

It's posted in My Etsy Shop if you would like to check it out.
