I'm so excited to announce my first collaboration with the blog LittleGirlBigEats!
Annie (who writes Little Girl Big Eats) and I are teaming up to bring you content on both of our sites with a common theme. This month, we focused on Honey!
On Little Girl Big Eats you will find several honey themed concoctions, for both the body and tastebuds! I know you'll love them, so be sure to pop over and see what Annie has whipped up!
On my YouTube channel I am guiding you through making your own Honey Orange scented honeycomb soap.
This project is so easy to complete and would be a great DIY gift. Not only do the soaps smell good, they work well and look adorable! It's a win-win-win.
For the second video in the honey collaboration I am guiding you through two ways to package your honeycomb soap for storage or gift giving. Again, these techniques are quick and easy.
I hope you love them and enjoy making your own soap. If you do, please let me know how they turn out.
Until next time!

A few highlights from shops that held holiday open houses in our area last weekend.
I wanted to buy everything, but exercised great self control :)

I have a new video up on my channel!
I'm not only sharing with you my filming/blogging schedule for the rest of the year, but you'll also see me transform three spaces in our home.
I've sped up my decorating footage to show how I quickly (even before the editing) was able to transform these fall scenes into winter vignettes!
Watch the magic happen here!

If you watched my last vlog than you know...
I'm starting to decorate for Christmas.
It was all I could do to wait until November 1st to pull the first "Christmas" box out from storage, and I can't wait any longer.
Our holiday party is the first weekend in December which means I have only one month to deck the halls. Time to get started!!
Also, I'm happy to announce the winner of my It's Paperwhite Time Giveaway:
Congratulations to Jacqueline L!! Please email me at: Mathews.Liz@gmail.com to set up shipping details.
I have another giveaway planned for next week so be sure to watch my YouTube channel for details.
Oh, and I should also mention that I am planning another HUGE giveaway- similar to October 2011, and I'm sure you want to check that out, too! Those details will also be announced on my YouTube channel.

There is a new video up on my channel! Stop by to hear about my most recent purchases, and my holiday decorating plans!
I am excited to find some live greenery and get started making a holiday wreath using the vintage bells above. These photos give me lots of inspirations:
If you're interested in purchasing your own spun cotton pieces there are lots to be found online. Here are some of my favorites. You can click on the images to be taken to the websites.
And if you think you'd like to make a wreath, like the one I'm envisioning, here is a link so some similar bells:
Happy Sunday! I'll be back on Monday to draw a name for my Paperwhite Time Giveaway! PS- it's not to late to enter ;)
