12 Days of Christmas: Day 3 Paper Pine Tree Giveaway

UPDATE: This giveaway is closed. Congrats to Cyndy Barbian who was randomly selected to receive the Anthropologie Inspired Paper Pine Tree. When I saw this awesome paper tree over at Anthropoloie  I fell in love and then when I saw the price, I just fell over. NO WAY! So I set out to recreate their paper pine and I'm super happy with the turn out. One of the only things that makes this a yuletide decoration is the use of Christmas sheet music in the tree's construction. "Well fa-la-la-la-la- la-la-dee-dah" I thought. I searched through an old hymnal I had picked up a few months back and pulled out all the sheet music in their Christmas section. It wasn't enough for the whole piece but it's in there and...

12 Days of Christmas: Day 1 Rustic Wrapped Ornaments & Giveaway!

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed Congrats to Adora Wilkins who was randomly selected to receive these rustic ornamets. Merry Christmas and welcome to the MillionAyres 12 days of Christmas. Today is day 1 and we're featuring a rustic wrapped ornament.

These ornaments give you the hand crafted look without the handmade look. Don't get me wrong, I love the ornaments decorating the tree that were lovingly made by my children, but something a little more chic makes this Christmas love smile. I always said I'd have 2 trees when I...

DIY Wednesday: No knit, Knitted Bangle

Okay, so maybe my knitting skills are sub-par at best, but I really love the look of knitted bangles. I love the look but not the price. Free is more to my liking. Pricey accessories are not something that I splurge on often or at all, but this was so cute I got to thinking how could I make my own with what limited knitting skills I had. Then the solution hit me like a ton of bricks.."Don't even try to knit it, use that ugly old sweater in your closet!" I knew there was a reason I had held on to that unflattering frock for so long and this was it.  So now all I needed was a bangle. I dug through my box-o-forgotten accessories and found...
