How To Make Peppermint Mocha Lip Scrub

While I’m all about fall flavors like pumpkin and cinnamon, I can’t get enough of peppermint mocha, a wintry classic. I am obsessed with Coffee Mate’s Peppermint Mocha creamer (although I started making my own) and the drink is one of the very few things I don’t mind ordering from Starbucks. Plus, I love the way the coffee and chocolate …

Darice DIY: Christmas Confetti Card

When it comes to gift giving, making your own greeting cards is perfect for using up leftover supplies and remnants. I like to think of it as a little scrapbook or collage.

When you’re obsessed with non-traditional decor/projects/everything, the most unconventional elements make the best projects. And when you’re obsessed with Halloween, those little plastic skulls can come in handy all year round. So why not merge the two? These mini studded skull ornaments might be a bit much for some, but I adore them. And while I used turquoise …
