DIY custom name banners

Hello, and welcome. Christmas is fast approaching, so I've been busy trying to finish a few homemade gifts ahead of time. This weekend I finally managed to complete two name banners that the recipients (three year old and nine year old girls, in this case) can hang in their rooms.

Both the letters and the owls were cut using my Sizzix. To be honest, I could have used different themes, but I kind of liked the owl idea after I made the first banner, so I just changed the colors for the second one.

The Really Crafty Link Party #147 & Holidays Celebration!

Hello, and welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #147, where you can share all your crafty ideas and anything else you've been working on lately.

During the month of December, we will also make The Really Crafty Link Party a place to celebrate the holidays season. So for the next few weeks, in addition to the usual three "crafty" features we will have one special Holidays Celebration feature - so four features in total!

As this is still a party so try to visit at least a couple of other links and spread the word on social media - the more, the merrier.

The linkup will be open until next Thursday and I will be posting the features on Friday, December 14th.

The Really Crafty Link Party is focused on crafts, so the idea is for you to link up all your crafty posts: DIYs, printables, home decor, tutorials, recipes, whatever you want to share. Feel free to add as many links as you want, and old posts are welcome too! During the month of December all Holidays related posts, crafty or not, are welcome too!

I have no problem if you want to add the same link in more than one week; it will still be eligible for a feature but please note that I will comment and add it to the Pinterest board only once.You can add posts on other subjects (family friendly please), but only craft related posts will have a chance to be featured and will be pinned to the party's Pinterest board. For the additional Holidays Celebration feature, the only requirement is a holidays-themed post, which doesn't have to be necessarily craft related.

If you host your own party, add it too - it may not be featured, but you'll be sharing it with all of us anyway, and everyone loves to discover new parties!

There are no thumbnails in the party, so in the "name" field of the linky make sure you add an interesting title/description to your post. If you follow me via any social media (icons in the side bar) let me know in the comments and I'll make sure to follow you back!

By linking up you give me permission to use your photos in features or round-ups, and to share your posts on social media (always with a link back to you for proper credit).







Thank you again for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

20 foods that get better with age

Aging food is, to be honest, a concept that never crossed my mind before. I obviously knew about cheeses or wine being aged, but other foods? No so much. 
So when I was approached by Oldest.org with their list of 20 foods that get better with age, I jumped to the chance of learning more about the subject, and now I'm sharing it here too: 

http://www.oldest.org/food/better-with-age/


And this is really the perfect time of the year to learn about it, as the Holidays are (not so) slowly coming around the corner.

Chocolate mousse with chocolate chips

Chocolate over chocolate is my daughter's definition of heaven. And while this chocolate loaded mouse isn't something I make very often along the year, it is definitely a staple at our house during the festive season. Because, of course, holiday calories don't count.
