    Simple Ribbon Heart Place Card

    Originally published on Feb. 1, 2016. I’ve put a lot of projects on this blog over the past couple of years, many of which are pretty detailed and take quite a bit time. But I absolutely love an easy project and today’s is just that. This simple ribbon heart place card requires minimal supplies and is super quick to whip up.

    Here’s what you need:

    (I found these pretty, neutral ribbons a few weeks ago at World Market and knew I had to have them in my stash.)

    Neutral Ribbons

    To start, cut two equally sized pieces of ribbon. Mine were about 5 1/2 inches each.

    Next, using the hot glue gun, place a small line of glue at one end of a ribbon. Press the ends of the ribbon together to make them stick. Do the same to the other ribbon.

    Gluing Ribbon Ends

    Then, run a small bead of glue along one side of one ribbon and attach the other ribbon to it to create a heart shape.

    To make the name tag, cut a small banner shape from a piece of paper and use the alphabet stamps and stamp pad to write the name.

    Finally, add a dab of glue to the middle of the heart and attach the paper banner. Aren’t these cute?

    These would be perfect for a party or even for a Valentine’s Day dinner. And, you could always change the wording on the paper to fit whatever occasion you choose. So many possibilities!

    2016 Year in Review

    Hello, Friends!  I hope you are enjoying the holidays and have eaten tons of amazing things over the past week! (We can all worry about our waistlines in the new year, right?) Anyway, for my 2016 year in review, I wanted to share some of the best posts from this year.

    2016 Year in Review

    We’ve had so many amazing/crazy things happen this past year. This blog went from a two person business to a one woman show. Our family made a big decision to move from the city to the country. We finished remodeling one home and started work on another. Lucky for us, I have been able to document all of that right here on this blog. Here are a few of the top posts from this past year!

    Spring Fling Home Tour – This post was the most viewed post from this past year. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year to decorate for.  I love all of the fresh greenery and life that it brings to a home. And a lot of people also agreed!

    My Home Style Blog Hop: Neutral Modern Farmhouse Tree – We absolutely loved our Christmas tree this year. From the addition “snow” to several new ornaments, it was wonderful to have a light and bright tree to celebrate the season!

    How We Sold Our Home In One Day – I have to admit that selling your home is one of the most stressful things a person can do. However, even though getting ready for showings and keeping your home spotless may have you wanting to poke your own eyes out, we were able to sell our home to the first buyer to walk through.

    2016 has definitely been a crazy year! I can only imagine what this coming year has in store for us. Happy Holidays to you and yours! Please be safe and I will see you back here in 2017!
