The Giving Jar

The Giving Jar

Let’s talk ThanksGIVING {after all, it’s only three days away}.  Today I wanted to share a super cute {and ridiculously easy craft with all of you}.  I call it…

Make a giving jar to keep all of your loose change and #donate it at the end of the year or on a special holiday via www.waittilyourfathergetshome.com #giving #thanksgiving #charity #payitforward

The Giving Jar might be the easiest {and cutest} way to pay it forward.  To make your own you’ll need the following:

large mason jar

cute scrapbook paper

bakers twine

cute embellishments {found all of mine on sale at Michael’s}

alphabet stickers

3″ circle punch

There isn’t a rhyme or reason as to how to put your Giving Jar together, the only rule I followed was to make it cute.

I used the circle punch to cut a perfect circle for the the lid of the mason jar then used the rest of my embellishments to fancy it up.

Now, what exactly is a Giving Jar?!

Simple.

It’s the place you put all your leftover change and single dollar bills and at the end of the year {or maybe even Thanksgiving}, you GIVE it away.  Maybe you take it to Starbucks and buy drinks for as many people as possible, maybe you head to the grocery store and give it to a mom with three little kids riding in her cart and clinging to her pants, maybe you simply take it to your church and put it in the offering basket.  Whatever you choose to do with it, it’s your choice and your gift of giving; that’s the beauty of it!

You could even make individual giving jars for your kids to contribute their own money to each week.

Where would you take your Giving Jar?

Happy ThanksGIVING everyone!

Simple Kid Table for Thanksgiving

Simple Kid Table for Thanksgiving

I was provided product by Cricut to use in this post, but as always all opinions are 100% my own!

I’m all about having a “kid table” at Thanksgiving dinner {or any other large, family dinner situation}, but let’s be realistic.  What toddler is going to keep a super detailed {albeit well thought out and very creative} kid table in “order”?  Honestly, when I sat at the kid table it was a card table, in the next room, that was wobbly.  Right?

So, picture this.  You’ve got a handful of kids {any age range you could image}.  What’s the one thing, besides sticking an iPad in their faces, that will most likely keep them occupied while you’re preparing their plates…coloring.  I’m thankful this year that the fine art of a good pack of crayons and some drawing paper still manages to keep my toddler entertained for anywhere from 10-45 minutes.

So, I whipped out my Cricut Mini, some pretty fall toned papers, and my brand spankin’ new Cricut Tools Basic Set and made some simple leaf cutouts to decorate my “kid table” for this year.

The Basic Tools set is absolutely amazing and comes with everything you see here:

The scissors cut cleanly and have a removable blade cover.  The tweezers have a reverse grip feature, which enables you to lift and secure in one step!  The scraper {my favorite tool, by far} scrapes and cleans unwanted scraps from the cutting mat, which also contributes to a longer lasting mat {score}!  The spatula precisely lifts images from the cutting mat, preventing tearing and curling.  And the weeder is the perfect tool for removing tiny cuts.  Plus…the end caps snap on and off, so you can change colors as you’d like!  Pretty fun, huh?!

The spatula worked like magic.  I cannot tell you how badly some of my previous projects used to curl as I’d try to remove them from my cutting mat.  The spatula literally helped the cut outs to pop right off.

The tweezers were perfect for the leaves that had intricate details, and the scraper…oh my…that scraper.  I had a clean mat in seconds.  SECONDS people!

Soon I had a handful of pretty fall leaves to decorate my kid table for Thanksgiving.

I scattered the leaves and a handful of crayons on the burlap table runner and put strips of kraft paper in front of each setting as a place mat.  Now the kids can color while we fix their plates and maybe even include some of the pretty leaf cutouts in their masterpieces.

Do you have a kid table at Thanksgiving dinner?

Holiday Traditions with West Elm

Holiday Traditions with West Elm

I’m so excited to partner with West Elm in this sponsored post and share with you their awesome products!

I’m a huge Thanksgiving and Christmas “traditions” kind of gal.  I absolutely LOVE making memories with our family, and starting new ones with our two boys.  Nothing quite beats waking up on Christmas morning as a parent and seeing the absolute shock and joy on your child’s face that Santa actually stopped by for a visit while he was sleeping.  Anticipating the big day is more and more of a reality for me as we’ve only got about 6 weeks until the big 2-5 of December.  One tradition that my husband and I have is to make a big breakfast to enjoy before we open our gifts Christmas morning with the boys.  Just us, our comfy PJ’s, a fire in the fireplace, and some delicious breakfast ingredients waiting to be cooked.  This year we are so excited to make some of our favorite breakfast items on our new Cast Iron Skillet from the West Elm Market.

Looking to start or continue some favorite holiday traditions this year?  Let West Elm inspire you! #sp #mywestelm http://r.linqia.cc/eab5f5c

West Elm was kind enough to offer to send me some of their fabulous products, and when I ordered, I definitely had the Christmas season on my mind.  I picked up some super cute white and red felt garland and matching felt snowflake ornaments {hello…kid friendly holiday decor!}, the cast iron skillet {we have wanted one FOREVER, plus the fact that it’s Made in the U.S.A. is totally awesome}, and one of their “favorite throws” in lemon wood {I may or may not have an addiction to buying beautiful new throws each winter}.

So the plan for Christmas morning {and probably many more mornings before}.  Make our favorite breakfast, bacon & scrambled eggs, but this time with our brand spankin’ new cast iron skillet from the West Elm Market.

Now you’ll also have to imagine a few other things to set the scene for the morning.

Cue super cute, new felt ornaments and garland, also courtesy of West Elm.

We couldn’t wait to give the skillet a try, so of course we used it to make some delicious bacon yesterday morning.  That’s definitely how bacon was meant to be cooked!

Mixing clean lines, natural materials and handcrafted collections from the U.S. and around the world, West Elm creates unique, affordable designs for modern living.  They definitely design products that make it easy for you to express your personal style at home.

West Elm Market is a total home toolkit in four key categories: Kitchen, Garden, Care & Repair and Personal Care. The brand focuses on functional design, local production, entrepreneurship, and community connections. The first store, West Elm Market Brooklyn, opened in October 2012. A true neighborhood destination, the West Elm Market stores include a café and a common area for community workshops. Several West Elm stores across the country have West Elm Market shop-in-shops.

And, good news!  West Elm is offering 20% off all tabletop items until November 26th.

What holiday traditions are you looking forward to continuing or starting this year?  I’d love to hear all about them!
