Striped mason jar soap pump…perfect for Halloween!

Did you know there is a super easy way to make and adorable mason jar soap pump?  I've made them in the past using vintage jars and soap pumps cut from plastic soap dispensers, and I love them still, but this way is just SO easy.  You can use a plain jar, which is always a classic choice, but I thought a fun black & white striped version would be perfect for Halloween!

Christmas Mason Jar Gift Set

In addition to the in-store Michael's Pinterest party last weekend (and it was SO fun), I threw a Pinterest Party at my house this week for some of my friends, and we had a FABULOUS time!  I love the idea of getting together with friends for a party to create some of the things that you see on Pinterest...to not just pin, but make it! I, of course, am a huge advocate for DIY projects, so this is exciting to me. Plus...it's so much more fun to craft and create with friends!  For my party, I went with a DIY gift theme, and decided on one of my favorite gifts to give, with a Christmas spin...a Christmas Mason Jar Gift Set!

How to write a thank you note + free printable tags

I'm a big believer in thank you notes.  And thank you treats. ☺

thank you notes | simplykierste

This technologically savvy world we live in has provided us with super fast ways to communicate, including text and e-mail, but when it comes to saying thank you, nothing beats a hand-written thank you note.  I'm talking about a good, old fashioned, lick the envelope, put a stamp on the front and drop it in the mailbox kind of note.  Isn't it the BEST feeling when you check the mail, and find a letter addressed to you that's not junk mail or a bill? Something meant just for you?

I adore mason jar lanterns, and I love using the hanging lanterns that I made.  I like to use them for table decorations in addition to hanging them, but with so many littles at home, I needed something that wasn't a fire hazard--no lit candles!  So...I made these incredibly simple lanterns that uses battery operated candles, and they are SO cute!!  I'm going to be lining my tables with them this summer!!
