Today I was on Good Day Sacramento talking with Melissa Cabral about Dollar Store crafts. She challenged me to create one of a kind gifts and decor from the Dollar Store that look like a million bucks. I accepted the challenge and had a really fun time coming up with these seven projects.
Tomorrow morning I will be crafting it up Christmas style with Melissa Cabral in studio on Good Day Sacramento in the 8 and 9 o’clock hours. We will be making some fantastic crafts with supplies from the Dollar Store. These babies look like a million bucks! You won’t want to miss this, so set your DVRs!

The woman in your life deserves to have that feeling she used to get when she was a kid on Christmas morning. Most of us moms think about what we want for Christmas last, if at all. Before that is EVERYONE else. SO here’s a glimpse into what women really want.
Apparently all the cool, fit moms are WILD for Orange Theory, so a membership and pre-paid child care would make many moms the happiest ever. If you paired that with some fab Lululemon workout wear, you may just win the hubby of the year award!
I would still love that Moon and Lola necklace and the stackable eternity bands for each child from my 2013 gift guide for her. In addition to that, I always ask for anything monogrammed, a membership to J.Crew’s jewelry of the month club, a maid that comes weekly, and pre-paid monthly facials. Realistically, I actually need snow gear: Boots, pants, accessories. I’m really hoping this winter brings lots of snow! That’s not too much to ask for, right? LOL! Here are a few other items to make every lady in your life swoon.
I have the hardest time shopping for my hubby. I always second guess every idea I come up with. Last year he emailed me a list, (loved that) and this past Father’s Day he thanked me in advance for a gift he just bought himself that was supposed to be from me. Yeah, maybe you should just stop reading this gift guide because maybe this is NOT something I am good at… But since I went to all the trouble to hyperlink some stuff, read on. Maybe this year is finally MY YEAR!
I’m super duper excited about the Snowflake Festival at Empire Oaks Elementary School PTA this Saturday December 13th from 8am-11am.
There will be a pancake breakfast, a performance by the school chorus (about 55 angelic voices!), a visit from Santa, crafts for the kids, Santa’s workshop, cookie decorating kits for just $1, and a book fair.
Tickets are only $5 and can purchased on-line or by turning in the flyer to your child’s teacher. Tickets are also available at the door.
One of the most exciting parts, for me anyway, is the awesome vendor fair! There will be over 20 awesome vendors to shop! So so so fun! They are mainly all local and have handmade, very loved items for sale.
I encourage all my family, friends, neighbors, Empire Oaks family, prospective Empire Oaks families, and anyone looking to shop for something unique to come on down to 1830 Bonhill Dr. in Folsom on Saturday!
Thanks heaven for little girls! They’re so smart, sweet, and lovable. I’m having the BEST time ever watching my little girl grow right before my very eyes. She’s definitely a girly girl that loves her perfume, gloss, and jewels. But she’s also has a scientific mind with a ton of artistic talent. I want to foster each little characteristic that she embodies. So this girly gift guide is very “Lyla Minded”. I hope you enjoy.
Gotta love little boys. I feel like they are all about having fun, exploring, figuring out how things work, and being active. They also like getting dirty and being loud. All in all it’s pretty awesome to be a little boy. Here are my top picks for coolest dudes you know!
