Today is our last day in Australia and it’s been a really fun, restful couple of weeks. Although I’m excited to be home next week and see Daisy (the hound) and Justi (the horse). Those too have been missed dearly!
If you’re wanting to get in the holiday spirit this weekend, here are some fun DIYs to try. Have a happy December weekend!
The holidays are in full swing and if you haven’t already decked the halls you can at least deck your desktop today!

Today I’m excited to share a fun and super easy DIY gift that you might just want to keep for yourself. I’ve partnered with my favorite snack company, Harvest Snaps, to create colorful, patterned mini bowls that are just the perfect size for holding snacks, dips, sauces and more. They make a great host or hostess gift and your friend who loves to cook is sure to adore them.
With all the holiday sweets and rich foods in the days ahead, these bowls are a handy reminder to snack healthy this season. Keep a set for yourself and fill them up with your favorite Harvest Snaps to satisfy your savory cravings throughout the holiday.
Wipe the outside of each bowl with rubbing alcohol and allow it to dry completely.
Use the porcelain paint pens to doodle on each bowl. You can create stars, hearts, squiggles, or any pattern or shape you like. Once complete, allow the bowl to dry 24 hours.
Place the dry, decorated bowls on a baking sheet in a cold oven. Turn the oven on to 320°F and bake for 30 minutes. It’s very important to not preheat the oven. Doing so could cause the bowls to break or even shatter in the oven. After 30 minutes, turn off the oven and allow the bowls to cool completely in the oven before removing them.
Stack up the bowl and tie a pretty ribbon around them for a simple, handmade gift.
Each holiday season, I love to feature classic recipes with a new twist. Today I’m excited to partner with Kenmore to share a fun recipe for toaster oven pie pops. They are so simple to make they can be made in a Kenmore 4-Slice Toaster Oven. And they are sure to be a big hit among both kids and adults at your holiday party!
Kenmore recently revamped their blog and it now features tons of recipes, how-to’s, buying guides, home hacks and more. So if you’re looking for holiday dinner recipe ideas or been wondering if what’s the latest in oven and ranges, you can find it all there.
