Upbra Review

I don't usually do product reviews but when I try out something I like I'd like to share it with you guys.  I hate bra shopping.  I usually end up in a dressing room with a pile of bras that don't fit me right and I have to awkwardly tell the dressing room lady that I need another size.  Upbra, on the other hand, was a really positive experience for me.  All I did was click what I wanted and it showed up at my door.

Nutcracker Printable

Hey there!  Thank you for stopping by my blog on your tour of free Christmas Printables and Vignettes!  Thank you Kristen from Ella Claire Inspired for putting this together!  If this is you first time here, my name is Emmie and I love to share my crafty projects and my drawings and free prints.  This year I wanted to draw the Nutcracker characters for Christmas.

 
 If you're unfamiliar with The Nutcracker, the story is about a young girl named Clara who wakes up at midnight on Christmas Eve to find that she has shrunk down to the size of her beloved toy soldier Nutcracker.  The Nutcracker has come to life to save her from the Mouse King.  The Nutcracker defeats the Mouse King and turns into a handsome prince and takes Clara to a magical land ruled by the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy.  

Here's my printable.  I drew the Nutcracker, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and the Mouse King.   You can download and print it HERE.



 
I grew up going to the Nutcracker ballet almost every Christmas.  I've always been in love with the story.  I love when the tree grows, when the Nutcracker fights the Mouse King, and the Sugar Plum fairy's famous dance.  I used to lay under my mom's Christmas tree and imagine that it was growing taller and taller.


I used a thrifted window frame, a Christmas wreath, and a Nutcracker and lantern from Target to complete my vignette. 




I hope you like my little Nutcracker print and can find a place for it in your Christmas decor.  Thank you so much for stopping by and please come by again!

DIY Pumpkin Patch Sign

 My heart says that it's time to decorate for Christmas but my husband has forbidden me from getting out my tree yet, so I guess I'll hold onto my pumpkins a little bit longer.  I made this fun pumpkin patch sign and I thought I'd show you how I put it together.

My Favorite Spooky Movies



I'm the only one in my family that likes to watch scary movies.  I almost always have to sleep with the bathroom light on after but I love the thrill of it when I'm watching.  I have a few favorites that I watch over and over.  I'm a little picky about the scary movies I like though.  I hate gore and I don't care for guys in masks that chase people.  What I really love are ghost stories.  I like movies that make the hair on your neck stand up but doesn't make you watch somebody stick needles in their eyes or saw off a foot.  I like spooky movies that make you think.  I like scary movies that keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time but then it feels lighter at the end and almost happy.  These are my all time favorite scary movies.

Coordinates Sign and Gallery Wall



 Isn't it funny how a certain place can hold a special place in your heart?  Something amazing happened in that spot and then all of a sudden that place becomes special and you can't help feeling it's magic every time your there.  For me, that place was the temple where I was married and I wanted to make something crafty to remind myself of that place every time I look at it.
