Christmas Candy Bark Recipe

It’s been a week of wildfire overstimulation. Feeling way thankful that loved ones are safe-save for the devastation of homes, property, and wildlife. And watching it inch up toward Santa Barbara has me on high mental alert, compounded with worry for those who have already been displaced. As I prepare a pile of belongings to go with in the event of an evacuation, I realize that nothing is more important than just being alive and for those I love to be alive. Simple as that. But I do need to chill my mind, so this post is really all about candy and color and holiday spirit…you know, all good and wholesomely happy stuff. I present to you, via Bespoke Bride, a super stylin’ pretty yummy Christmas candy bark recipe to up the ante on feel good necessities. The full diy is right here. Go. Make. Breathe. Enjoy.

Art Crush / Ceramic Hand Painted Rainbows by Eloeil

I am willing to bet my favorite rainbow over-the-knee socks that you’d be hard pressed to find a sweeter nugget of home decor than these hand painted ceramic rainbows by Eloeil. Given the resources, I’d buy them all up to gift to friends, family, and totally random strangers. And then I’d buy more to strategically place around my home. Thoughts? And I’m also willing to bet that you feel a little better than you did before seeing this post, am I right? Shop the collection over on Darling Clementine!

Make / Holiday Wrapping Party

I’ve vowed again this Holiday season to keep the consumerism to a minimum. But I’m thinking of having a gift wrapping party for donated items for shelters and the like. I also understand that some organizations require unwrapped gift donations, so maybe I’ll switch it up a bit and make it a fundraising gift wrapping party. That’ll be sweet, yeah?  And anyhow, I thought this post on Oh Happy Day would be a helpful start. Either way, it’ll be a fun way to amp up the goodwill…and I’m always all for that.

Art Crush / Children’s Art and Play Room Inspiration

The other day I was scrolling through the ol’ Pinterest and saw the above image pass on my screen (all the color…and that light fixture!). Seeing art and craft spaces for kids never fail to reignite my love for designing inspiring and creative children’s rooms. This is top on my list for next wave company expansion…Ugh, I love this stuff so much. To positively influence a child’s experience with safe, comforting, welcoming, and uplifting materials is a dream. And these rooms only further fueled that passion… I’m digging the organization and spectrum of colors, the natural night, and the charming display of artwork… Pretty wonderful, huh? Plus, ideas for creating an art and craft space for kids. See more of these darling rooms here + here + here + here.
