Eco- Friendly Advent wreath

       The Advent Wreath is an important symbol of Advent of the season. It usually sits on the dinner table and is a constant reminder of the holy season.
    The Advent wreath is a circular garland of evergreen branches representing eternity. On that wreath, four candles are typically arranged.They represent the four weeks of preparation. During the season of Advent one candle on the wreath is lit each Sunday. Each candle represents an aspect of the spiritual preparation for the coming of the Lord. 

The meaning of the candles is as follows:
First candle: represents hope.
Second Candle: stands for love.
Third candle: represents joy.
Fourth candle: is a symbol of peace. 
     But now I will show you an unusual Advent wreath. It is a McDonald's cup holder wreath! Very easy, very cheap and very fun project to achieve. So let's all recycle!
All you need is:
McDonald's cup holder
Pine branches
Some ribbons and four candles
        Less talking and more working! Let's get started and I hope you all have a great time crafting!
Secure the branches to the cup holder with the ribbon.
Strawberry Love Tip: Spray the wreath with hairspray to help hold the branches in place and preserve their color.
As a final touch add a purple ribbon and you are done!

I told you that it will be easy!

Picture of the day : Liza and her sheep toy

        Liza loves toys and she has a lot! Toys are important for puppies, because it keeps them busy and encourage exercise (which makes them tired and more likely to nap). My little baby love stuffed animals. She can toss them, sleep with them, carry them, and chew on them. She is also very into the toys that have squeakers inside. Anything that makes sounds and moves makes her happy. This is her latest toy : a cute little sheep.
 Shhh! It seems that she fell asleep!
 What is your dog's favorite toy?

Customized Mug

            I love a great DIY project that creates something useful! I always wanted a personalized mug. I had a lot of ideas about how to customize and create it for me, but I've never done it! :-( So it's time for a change and I decided to show my work with you!

All you need is:
  • a cup
  • some markers
  • nail polish
  • clear nail polish

How to:
1. Make sure your mug is clean and dry.
2. Paint! Use your imagination! Mine will be, of course, a Strawberry Love mug design. But you can do anything you want.

StrawberryLove Tip: If you make a mistake, you can wipe off with a wet wipe.

3. Once you’ve finished your masterpiece let the paint dry for a while.
4. And now the final touch, use clear nail polish  to keep the colors waterproof.

That's all! This is the final project!

Heidi WinterVenture

Hello hello cuties!   
      OMG! It's so so so yummy! I absolutely love this Holiday Chocolate Collection! I tasted both WinterVenture bars, and the both have very good flavors.
        The first one I ate was the Apple & Cinnamon - the classic flavor combination of apple and cinnamon pairs perfectly with milk chocolate, followed by the Orange & Cinnamon - spicy cinnamon balances the citrus flavor of orange in creamy milk chocolate. 
Mmm . . . just perfect!

        "Make a list of important things to do today. At the top of your list, put 'eat chocolate.' Now, you'll get at least one thing done today."

My Fall Centerpieces

            Here I have some handmade autumn centerpieces made from mini pumpkins, corn, leaf, fir cone, chestnuts and some candles. 
        My new centerpieces took me less than 10 minutes to put together and was free! I only used stuff I had laying around the house. I love things that only take a few minutes to make. And seriously, it was really easy to throw together! Mini pumpkins are just the best things to decorate your home with!
        Decorating doesn’t have to be hard or cost a lot of money. Using natural elements makes the home warm and inviting. Remember to use your imagination!

         I am very pleased with how this decorations turned out.

New outfits for my baby girl

            Our dogs are our best friends and companions almost everywhere. And it is a common thing when pet owners adore dressing up their dogs. As we realize that our dogs are the members of our family it is important to give them enough attention. Dog clothes are one of the ways to show the love and care. Fashionable dog clothes are not necessarily designer dog clothes. They can be purchased anywhere, and it is not necessary to pay the whole fortune for dog clothes. That’s why if you like to dress up your dog you can make the dog clothes yourself. This will give them a touch of uniqueness and personality. These are some of the clothes I've done lately :
Little black dress with a cute pink bow
Purple dress with matching bow
It's never too early for candy!
Casual wear
Winter outfit

Please let me know what you think of this dog clothes!
