Paola - What a lovely tradition! So wonderful that your family has kept it going and such a great way to get family and friends involved.
Paola -Dec 08, 2015, 9:01PM
How utterly lovely! I'm all about making this year, so this tutorial came just in time. As for favorite traditions, my family's tree tradition is dear to my heart. When my little sister was a baby, my parents were afraid she'd pull a real tree down on herself, so my dad cut one out of fine art paper for our living room wall. A friend came by and commented on the inventiveness and asked if he could make a decoration to stick on it. Since then, it's been almost two decades of Christmas parties where we ask our friends to make paper decorations for our tree! It's fun, friendly, and we have new masterpieces every year. Good for anyone in cities with little house space! xx

Your holiday gifting just got a little easier with this quick how-to!Read More

I was not impressed with this recipe... the soap pieces would not melt and we had to scour the internet to find something that would melt the pieces. The only way to melt soap is to grate it and add boiling water. But we do love this scent.

Loveee, the scent theme for this! Will Def be on the hunt for all the supplies to make my own. Thanks for such an inspiring post! (:
