In case you didn’t know, the she-shed trend is alive and well, my friends! And this is basically like my urban version of one without actually having a backyard (yet) or a real shed. Instead, I present to you my she-storage!

Crowd Pleasing White Elephant Gifts – for under $30

Our New Studio Seating Area + How We Decorated for Christmas! by top Houston Lifestyle Blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar and Cloth

These are ALMOST too cute to be considered white elephant gifts. Then again, there’s always at least one person that ends up having the cool gift that everyone wants to steal, and in this case, that would totally be you!

You can always just scrap the white elephant theme altogether and go for stocking stuffers instead. Basically. I want my entire life to be as colorful as this box of matches. Can you blame me?!

Candy Cane Affogato

What’s your Christmas party style? Are you the games and appetizers kind of hostess, preferring a casual hangout with friends? Or do you go for a more formal affair, a complete dinner with a fancy spread type? My (Rebecca’s) personal favorites are caroling parties, traipsing around the neighborhood with all of your friends and singing to the neighbors until their ears hurt and your toes and nose are frozen. Hoop skirts, bonnets,

A Party Scavenger Hunt Game Kids Activity

it's a holiday instax party! A Party Scavenger Hunt Game Kids Activity by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth #DIY #printable #game #ideas #kids #activity #holiday #christmas #scavengerhunt

Before we get into the details of this party scavenger hunt game let me give you a little background story…

My new favorite word to use when it comes to parenting is “deflect”. When Gwen is about to scream her head off because I won’t let her empty all of our media console cabinets onto the floor, boom, deflect!

Which then means I bust out a random household object… like a spatula… that she likes far better than her 100 baby toys in plain sight.
