Monogrammed Cranberry Ornament

You will need:
- Some "Cranberries" I used little red foam vase fillers
- Glue Gun
- A Letter
- Burlap
- Wire

1. Glue the Cranberries around the boarder of you letter. 
2. Continue to fill in the rest of the letter. 

3. Make your burlap bow - above is how I made mine

4. Glue your bow right on top!

5. Take your wire making a little hook and glue it to the back as close to the centre as possible

6. Hang it on your tree!

I didn't have a Christmas tree so I display it on - so my lovely barren tree outside our apartment will have to do!

Out of Service

Hi Everyone, we are off to Mexico this morning and then off to Canada straight after that so we will be out of the country for 2 weeks. So if you have emailed me or want to purchase something I will be unavailable for most of this time :) Thanks everyone!
Were so excited to finally be on our honeymoon

This Sneak Peak Melted My Heart

Sharon gave us a sneak peak of our photo shoot we did over thanksgiving break. She did our engagments  and when I found out she was coming to Colorado I had to snatch at the opportunity. We did a casual yet intimate family shoot and boy was it freezing cold. But these two images made me sqeal in joy {yeah Taylor gave me a funny look until he realized why} I cannot wait to see the rest of them!

Check out the rest of her work here

Art on Fire

For those of you who are married you know how hard it is to find a good set of couple friends - And how important date night is!!

We met our new friends Nicole and Eric at "Art on Fire" which is just like "Color Me Mine" but a lot less fee's. We all picked out our pottery to paint and started the fun. Then afterwards we went back to our place and had cream cheese stuffed strawberries drizzled with chocolate - So yummy - and watched a movie

Taylor made a bowl to keep our keys in by the front door

I made a Ring Holder - which I have been wanting for the last year. Glad to finally have a safe place to keep our rings at night

The Smiths made a mug - they were very intense about it!

"Eternity est. September 4th 2010"
Taylor, Myself, Nicole and Eric - were a pretty fun bunch if I may say so myself

American Thanksgiving

This was my first thanksgiving with the in-laws and probably my first "real" thanksgiving since I moved here. Its been three seasons since I'v been without my family and I cannot wait to go back to Canada for thanksgiving again someday (not because I didn't have a blast with everyone here!).

We had a huge dinner with all the family and it was really fun to see all the Phillips again. Then later that day we played some rock band in Rex's new home theatre! And of course some black friday shopping I have never been and it wasn't that scary we found some good deals and the outlets were empty we found some great designer finds for cheap!

I also learned a new family game called Hand and Foot which I can't wait to play again it was so much fun :) Phillips clan thanks for making my thanksgiving awesome I really felt like I fit in with all you crazy loons!

We played some headbands and Taylor was a Hippo and I was a Shoe which everyone said was very fitting!

We deep fried some turkeys. Yes, we deep fried them I'm serious! It was yummy too :)

We had some purple cauliflower?

And Family Photos - Funny we all ended up wearing blue how convenient
