Antler Decoration Ideas

I had a great pleasure of reviewing wonderful antlers from Black Forest Décor! I just loved browsing through their site; they have everything you will need to decorate your home all rustic. I especially love their holiday décor and how it can be transform to be used all year long. I got a antler center piece and it’s so lovely and it has beautiful detail. I came up with antler decorating ideas.

The antlers are very festive and have cute leaves, moss and cherries on them. I love looking at the detail of each antler is beautiful. I just could not wait to get it out of the box and on its place on top of my white chest.
While browsing Black Forest Décor you can get anything for lighting with faux antlers to bedding! They have a great selection for everyone’s taste and I can’t wait to get my hands on a couple of other things. I also like that they have a selection of faux and real antlers.  I especially liked the beautiful coffee table made into a sledded. You can’t find better antler decoration ideas than in Black Forest website.
Since it’s not the festive holiday season, I decided to added a little spring to my antlers. I used silk flowers and place them the center. Now I have flowery center piece for the spring and a beautiful festive center piece for the winter.
What will you pick from Black Forest Décor? Will you transform your bathroom into a wood cottage or maybe your bedroom? The possibilities are endless and the décor is unique.
If you are looking for antler decoration ideas then stop by and take a look around their is always something for everyone.
Stay crafty,

Loren

Decorate your space with the new Kleenex

I have found that I cannot live without Kleenex in my home especially since I have two little ones at home.  I know what my kiddos do not like it when I try to wipe their noses with toilet tissue and it all starts with a chase around the house trying to clean their noses. However, when they see the box of Kleenex it’s a completely different story. I actually have to hide the box of Kleenex at times because they won’t stop using the Kleenex. 

To celebrate Kleenex’s 90th anniversary, they’re bringing you another innovative first: The Kleenex® Style Studio. It’s a fun, inspiring way to discover more of the Kleenex® Brand designs and products you love. And maybe even a few that’ll take you by surprise.
Whether you’re decorating at home or adding a pop of color to your clutch, Kleenex® has you covered.
If you have not noticed Kleenex has a style! They made new style boxes to fit into any décor. I love the new colors and how they look great in any room. When we think of Kleenex we think of runny noses and being sick but did you know that I also use it to clean my little burp messes. They are soft on her skin and are right at hand when I need them.
Are you wondering if Kleenex has your style? Then come over and take a look here to see your tissue style.

It seemed like I was pregnant forever! However, now I have a beautiful new addition to our family. She is the most mellow little one. My son has always been full of energy and life, so having a quite little girl is a welcome change. My son gave me the wonderful gift when he was born of inspiring to explore my creative side and she has also inspired my creativity.  I can’t wait to share all the new projects that are yet to come.

Never Forget 9/11

My prayer and thought are with the families that lost loves one and friends on that faithful day. Thank you for all the heros who risk their lives to help those in need that day.  I still remember what I was doing on that day and every bit of emotion that went through me as I watch the twin towers fall. 9/11 will always be with me.

Weekend Recap and Day 8 Tag

This weekend I tried to do chocolate cups! I found this cute little pinterest recipe, however it did not go as smooth as I wanted. I had the chocolate cups in the fridge and decided to pop the balloon right away instead of waiting for the cups to sit at room temperature for a while. Of course the balloon did not come slip off chocolate cups. However, a new problem came to light the apt was super warm and the cups started melting, so everyone had to eat them very fast, hehe. Next time should be better I hope!
