Holiday DIY is something I have enjoyed writing about over the past 12 months. As my blog turns 1(!!!) I put a lot of thought into what I enjoy writing about and what my readers enjoy reading about so that I could give my blog a nice facelift!
I love blogging; I didn’t expect how much I would like it, It is SUCH a fun hobby. I have had over 2,000 people look at my blog in its first 12 months which is crazy to me and now I am motivated to continue my journey. So what should I focus on in 2017?
Top topics are always writing about Motherhood; the trials and tribulations as well as any things I have learned along the way. DIY is fun and I realized I especially love writing about holidays and holiday DIY. Not just the big holidays but ALL of them; any reason to celebrate right? So every month I am going to post about things to do for holidays in that month; gift guides, crafts or great recipes. I am even going to incorporate video sometimes (scary!). Want to see each holiday inspired post? Click here to subscribe for a bi-weekly email. I have a few Valentines posts already; like my gift guide for him on any budget: http://momsbf.com/valentines-day-gifts/
My first video is below – this is my very first shot so please excuse the inexperience I figure I will only get better and learn along the way. The craft itself is great though! Cheap easy fun for toddlers or even older kids. Great example of holiday DIY – making your own valentines! It incorporates paint (I keep my toddler in a high chair – it’s all about containment!), stickers and glue on pieces. These are all of my toddler’s favorite things although when you look at his final product it is clear his FAVORITE is the glue on pieces; every time I do crafts I learn something new about his abilities and preferences which is so much fun!
LULAROE LEGGING GIVEAWAY! While launching my new holiday theme I wanted to execute a contest for my current readers – but I had a hard time incorporating my holiday theme. Than I had a thought – doesn’t LuLaRoe do holiday inspired leggings? I consulted a sales person and they do! The next holiday I am going to write about is St Patrick’s Day so why not give away some cute green leggings?
ENTER HERE for a chance to win St Patrick’s Day inspired LuLaRoe leggings pictured above (only enter your name and email). Super cute and the MOST COMFORTABLE leggings I own. I do not own a lot of green clothes so wearing these will help me check my ‘green box’ on St Patrick’s Day.
I hope you enjoyed the video and will contact me about some of your holiday themes and a chance to guest blog about holiday DIY and traditions!
Till next time,
