November came and went now I can hardly believe that we are into double digits in December. I had lofty aspirations of getting my act together and hosting a cookie decorating party for my kids but it's time to face that idea is just not going to happen. So I am moving on to planning a New Years Eve celebration!
A few years ago, my clever husband came up with the idea to watch the ball drop on YouTube from the previous year. This way you can see the ball drop at any time that's convenient for you, and you don't have to stay up until midnight. Does it matter if it says 2014 or 2015? That all confuses me anyway. When decorating and crafting, which number do I use? Saying farewell to 2014 or ringing in 2015?
This year we are having our friends The Bradfords over (like most holidays!) and I've rounded up some cute decor on Pinterest to try. Here's what I am inspired by!
Of course, my invitation and envelope will also have my PSA Essentials personalized address stamp for easy return addressing and I am sure to find a way to use my Peel & Stick stamps in my decor....What do you do for New Years Eve?

If you loved Mae Armstrong's DIY fabric pinwheel ornaments last week, you will love this variation on the project. Need a festive, personal front door wreath for the season? Try this one by Mae! It involves quite a bit of work (fair warning) but the result is fabulous and the tutorial is really detailed so you will get a great finished product. Best of all, you can reuse this each season.
Mae started by using the biggest embroidery hoop she could find at Michael's. (Don't forget your Michael's coupon!)
Trim the size of the base fabric. For this wreath Mae selected natural burlap as her main canvas.
Insert the burlap and attach the outer hoop. Tighten the screw and secure. Gently stretch the burlap making sure it's nice and flat. Set aside.
Mae also wanted a black initial and she found that felt was the best option. Using her Silhouette SD, she selected a decorative font and trimmed the letter. She used freezer paper and ironed it using a low setting onto the felt to serve as her pattern. She then cut the felt and glue the letter onto the center of the stretched burlap.
Using her Big Shot, Mae selected a circle die to help her with her fabric pinwheel production. It was a truly a great way of cutting all the fabrics she needed. You'll need five circles to complete one pinwheel. (And she made a lot of pinwheels!)
To assemble the pinwheel start by folding the circle in half.
Then fold into a cone shape making sure the edges meet. Secure with glue and begin with the rest of the of the remaining pre-cut fabric.
Mae made a whopping 14 pinwheels for this wreath as she wanted cover the entire hoop. That means this project required 70 circles to complete the wreath. Since she knew she was going to re-use it again she didn't mind the time of putting it together. (This woman is amazing!)
Arrange the folded pieces to make a circle. Glue the stamped wooden disc.
Line the edge of the hoop with the fabric pinwheels and spread them out. Secure each pinwheel with glue.
