Deck the Halls

We decorated our office last week!
I love decorating the office. I have no clue why, but I just think its fun.

Most of our decorations are, for lack of a better term, cheap. I think the most we’ve paid for anything has been maybe $3. It all works, though and looks fabulous (or at least I think so.)

Want to see? Of course you do! :)


This little Nativity is adorable, right? I picked it up for $1 at Dollar General.


I found this at the Dollar Tree to replace our ugly wreath/spray/thing that was beyond repair. I like how it matches the colors on our sign. It’s also not overly flashy, which is nice too.

And then: the tree!


New ribbon! Last year our poor tree had two different ribbons on it. It turned out looking cute, but I really wanted to do something different this year. Mis-matched just wouldn’t cut it. Plus, it matched the other tree trimming items we had.


Tree trimming = done. XD
(I actually was starting to put the ribbon on and got distracted. Oops.)


These came from the Dollar Tree as well. Our tree needed some sparkle. These were perfect.


Ta-da! Isn’t it cute?! It’s so simple, but it’s perfect for the office.
I’m also digging the matching look. Even though it took two Christmases for it to happen, haha!

There’s actually one more aspect to our decorating, but I’m saving it for another post.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed this little foray into decorating on a budget (or something like that!).
See you next time! :)

As Seen on Pinterest - The Retirement Survival Kit

One of my co-workers recently retired. I'm happy for her, because she really deserves it and everything...but I hate that she's leaving me!  I tried to bribe her into staying. I even threatened to lock her in the office and refuse to let her go.  Oddly, she didn't like that suggestion.  Since she was set on this notion of retirement, I immediately began scouring Pinterest for some sort of cute retirement gift for her. I knew I'd find something there, and I was not disappointed! Fairly soon after beginning my search, I came across the 'Retirement Survival Kit'.  (Photo from Pinterest - original pin link ) The pin was a link to an eBay auction, but of course my first thought on seeing it was "I can do that!". So I did.   I really should have taken a better photo of it. But this is all I managed to get. So, uh, ta da! I changed a few of the items around (the original link was from the UK, so some of the items weren't available)

Bofur Inspired Hat Pattern

 (Check out this handy dandy Pinterest ready graphic I made!) In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, one of the dwarves (Bofur) wore this really, really awesome hat.  I fell in love with it, and decided to see if I could crochet my own version of it.  Well, first I scoured the internet, hoping for a pattern, and when I didn't find one THEN I decided to make my own.  And since I know there are others out there who would love to have this pattern, I'm posting it here! PLEASE NOTE: You may make items and sell them using this pattern, but PLEASE link back to the pattern and credit me as the source. It's only fair! :) The Bofur Inspired Hat Pattern You will need: Red Heart Super Saver (I forgot the actual color name, but it’s brown, okay?)

Sakura Season Bokksu

Do you like watching unboxing videos?  I do! I've also decided to try my hand at making a few. I uploaded my latest one to YouTube today, which you can watch below. I did an unboxing of the Sakura Season Bokksu, which is full of absolutely gorgeous (and delicious!) snacks from Japan.  Which snack would you want to try first? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube while you're there. I'm trying to post some fun stuff occasionally, and would love for you to join me!
