Elf on the Shelf Classroom & Home Ideas

Monday is the big day when I introduce The Elf on the Shelf to my preschool class!  In this video I share with you how I wrap it up and reveal our elf friend to my class. This is such a cute idea and can easily be done for your little ones at home. The idea is to make the package look as if it has traveled all the way from the North Pole. Once I get to school in the morning I will put it in the school freezer to get it nice and cold, it came from the North Pole you know!  I will have someone radio our classroom to say that we have a special delivery package and the elf magic can begin!  Watch the video below to see how you can wrap your own Elf on the Shelf for his big reveal at your house!

DIY Dollar Spot Holiday Centerpiece

Christmas centerpieces can cost a small fortune!  It is easier then you may think to create a holiday centerpiece for your table all on your own.  In the video below I show you step by step how to create a beautiful Christmas arrangement using Target Dollar Spot and Dollar Tree items plus a few things you may already have in your craft stash.

The best thing about this arrangement is that nothing is permanently attached so at the end of the season each item can be removed and stored away for next year.  

Thank you so much for spending a little of your day with me and be sure to leave me a comment below and tell me what type of arrangement you put on your holiday table.

Let's Play Catch Up!

In true blog fashion, I have fallen behind.  No one ever intends to get behind but it happens to the best of us.  So I wanted to get caught up today and post some of the things I have been working on when I should have been here! 

 I started a YouTube channel, My Bashful Life, a few months and I did a few videos to correspond with some blog posts to see how I liked it because I love watching YouTube myself and subscribe to several channels. I honestly enjoyed the whole process.  I loved filming, editing, creating thumbnails and uploading.   So the last few months I have been more intentional with creating and uploading videos.  I have new videos weekly on the same types of things I blog about here.  Family, life and organizing. The thing I loved the most about YouTube was the community, connecting with viewers and subscribers has been so fun.  It's wonderful to get to know so many people that I would have otherwise never had the opportunity to get to know. Community is the aspect of blogging that I love the most too.  

So my goal is to combine my blogging community and my YouTube community by posting each new video I create here on the blog.  It will be a better way to share information, provide links to helpful websites and maybe even a recipe or two.  To catch us all up and kick off the holidays,  I wanted to share some of the last few videos posted.  I am excited to begin my new blog/video schedule this month during the holidays.    

I hope you will all take a minute to visit me on YouTube and while you are there I hope you will take a minute to say Hello and Subscribe.  MY BASHFUL LIFE can be found HERE.
