ETCETERAS: a winter centerpiece

Winter Centerpiece via homework | carolynshomework.comI failed so miserably with Christmas décor this year that I had to do some post-holiday winterizing. Between my new day job and being away almost every weekend at my son’s volleyball tournaments we just didn’t have time to haul out the Christmas décor. Add to that the fact that it’s been almost 80 degrees here in Southern California and I almost feel like it wasn’t the holiday season.

CELEBRATIONS: Animal Snow Globe

Animal Snow Globe via homework | www.carolynshomework.comThere have been a couple of trends that I love in the crafty world – snow globes made from jars and painted plastic animals. I decided to combine the two into a holiday stacked animal snow globe.

ETCETERAS: Christmas Shadow Box

Christmas Shadow Box via homework | carolynshomework.comShadow boxes are fun and the sky is the limit when deciding what to fill the little cubbies with. I think this little box will be constantly changing but for now I’m enjoying a few silver and white Christmas trinkets.

CELEBRATIONS: Brown Paper Packages Advent

Brown Paper Packages Advent via homework | carolynshomework.comPhew… I barely finished this year’s Advent Countdown in time. We’re on day 2 so I probably should have had this all done a week ago. But a week ago I was thinking about turkey and stuffing. With not much time, I went with a simple concept this year inspired by the classic lyrics “brown paper packages tied up with string…”

Handmade for the Holidays Link Party via homework | carolynshomework.comWelcome to homework's first annual Handmade Market link party.

Homework Dress Code: holiday style with No nonsense

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.



I have to confess, although I used to be really stylish and into clothes my everyday-work-from-home style has become boring. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to make an effort to break free from my typical yoga pants and t-shirt uniform.

Sew and Tell: vintage chenille no-sew stockings

I love vintage linens. In fact, a long time ago – in a galaxy far away, I used to make and sell pillows using vintage fabrics.

Little Crafts: kiwi crate holiday fun

Kiwi Crate 12I’ve mentioned before that my son is now a teenager – so when Kiwi Crate asked me to review their holiday craft crate geared for kids age 3-7, I had no choice but to borrow some little crafters. My friend Katy also has a teenage son but she has lots of nieces and nephews who were happy to help out. How cute are these happy crafters?

Good Taste: enjoy the holidays with an edward’s pie {giveaway}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Edwards for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.



One of my favorite desserts is a chocolate cream pie. I consider it in a totally different category than fruit pies - I love those too but chocolate cream pies are so light and fluffy. And although I enjoy baking, it’s hard to find time around the holidays to make everything homemade.


Sew & Tell: needle felted penguin

Have you ever tried needle felting? This is something that I’ve been wanting to try for awhile but I never got around to. Thanks to EK Success Brands, I was able to make this little penguin fairly easily.
