Wow, another year is almost over and gone! It has been a great year and I can only hope that 2017 will be just as good to my family and me. I really am so very blessed. Now that my kids are a bit older I have gotten a big urge to travel and visit different places. Sure I’ve traveled places but I would like to travel overseas and visit places like Greece, Scotland and France! I can’t say that will be on the agenda for the upcoming year but it is definitely on my bucket list.
Also, on my bucket list is to spend more time with my family and to make more “me” time. I work a lot. That isn’t such a bad thing but I do feel that it doesn’t leave enough time to focus on the “me” things. I have a day job and I run my own online shop and Etsy shop where I create birthday chalkboards and party supplies. I LOVE my shop and it is so very special to me having the opportunity to add a special touch to any party or event. I just actually need to stick to my shop hours and only work during them. Baby steps.
For those of you that are throwing a New Year’s party, I have put together a DIY video on YouTube on how to make several quick and easy decorations to help ring in the new year. Actually, they would go perfectly with any party theme because they are so versatile that you can make them in any color scheme that you want. The video includes directions on how to make a glitter circle banner, confetti poppers, confetti balloons and straw decorations. See below the photo of each of the items. Also below that you can find the video. I hope you enjoy!
If you watch the video and make any of the projects then I would love to see them. You can #simplydovie on Instagram or tweet me. Also, I would love if you left a comment letting me know which one you made or liked best. Don’t forget to subscribe.
Until next time,
