Printable New Year's Eve Fun Facts Game

New Year's Eve is TOMORROW! 
Holy Moly! 
2015 is literally JUST around the corner! 

 I created a fun little game that you can play while you are waiting to ring in the new year. 
It is a fun game for adults and even kiddos full of fun facts about New Year's Eve celebrations here in America and around the world.


The game consists of a fill in the blank sheet with the fun facts, an answer key, and 12 separate fact sheets.

I designed it so you can print out the 12 fact sheets, I would suggest printing them as 5x6's or 4x6's and place them in frames around your space to be read throughout your party. 

Then, print out the fill in the blank sheets for the numbers of people needed and either let them walk around and fill in when they read each fact OR make it harder by picking up all the facts and having them fill out the facts by memory for a prize. 

You learn something new while playing a fun game!

There are 14 sheets total so I combined them into one large PDF file and uploaded it to box.com.
You can download your game below.



HAVE FUN!!!

Holiday Home Tour

It is Christmas Eve and thought I would FINALLY share my holiday home tour. 
Not much has changed from the last few years so I was debating on even sharing at all and decided to do it anyways. 

I will start by the front door and work my way around the house. 

 Wooden snowflake hanging in front of the mirror by the front door with a little snowman on the table along with the little metal box we keep the Christmas cards as they arrive.

 I hung my stenciled burlap Christmas art next to the front door.

On our way to the tree. I placed it in front of the window in the front of the house like I normally do so you can see it from outside.

Glitter Ball Cone Tree Topper

I know Christmas is only a few days away but I still have a Christmas project to share with you today. 

 I created this tree topper when I was in TN in November and totally forgot to take pictures of it once we put our large tree up. OOPS! 
I could have saved this tutorial until next year but thought I would go ahead and share it anyways. 


 I decided to create this topper the same way I created my new Glitter Ball Wreath and used the same balls as well to tie them together.

 Here is how I created it. 

Supplies: 
-Styrofoam cone
-Low temp glue gun (high temp will melt your Styrofoam)
-Glitter ball vase filler- got it at Hobby Lobby
-Scissors or something sharp

-Glitter and glue- optional

Ignore the ribbon... no idea why it is in this picture! lol

4 Free & Simple Christmas Printables

Christmas is officially 10 days away!! CRAZY!
So today I created some simple Christmas printables for you.


I know most of you are probably all decorated but I have a few options available so hopefully one will match the decor in your home.

I created each as an 8x10 but you could easily print them smaller if that is what you would like. 
I print mine through Picasa in which it let me play with the options of cropping or shrinking the image to fit on my page but I didn't have any problems with them.
Just play with the settings in Picasa or your printer settings. For some reason, mine printed better through Picasa than through the software for my actually printer. It was cutting off one side of my image in my printer software for some reason. 

Anyways... pick which design you would like or save all 4 below! 




Happy Holidays!!!
