Part of me really enjoys getting back into the daily routine of things and part of me really misses waking up without an alarm clock and having the kids hang out with me. We had such a good family time over the past couple of weeks… not as many places to be… lots of vegging out and watching movies… taking walks ….making cocoa. I hope that you had a nice extended holiday with your families. I was so excited last night too watch Downton Abbey! I still can’t believe that it is the last season for the series. I’m going to miss these characters so much!

January seems to be very slow months in blogland. I have paired up with a few talented gals to share with you some organizing and cleaning ideas later this week. But today I wanted to share with you a really neat trick that I learned this weekend. I saw a video pop up on my facebook from a German blogger and she created these stars with paper bags. I thought that was really unique and how fun would it be to do a bunch of them for a wall treatment?!? I made a video to show you guys how easy it is to do.

Obviously I just used craft lunch bags but you can use any color paper bag that you can get your hands on. I love party decorating that is really cheap and starts a conversation and these definitely apply! My kiddos turn 16 in a couple of weeks so maybe I will use these to decorate the house with it. Just click on the one minute YouTube to see how I made them. All you will need is 7 paper bags, glue (I found that a glue stick was not quite durable enough I would use a very thin bead of white craft glue instead) and pinking shears make for a fun effects or just plain old scissors will work too.

So easy the kiddos can do it with you:)

Have a great Monday!!
