BLOGMAS DAY 5 |Seasonal DIY| Holiday Wine Bag

Hello Passionista,

Y’all already know, I am the DIY Queen when it comes to gifts and decor.  I came across the idea (on Pinterest) for holiday wine bags. I found these to be super easy to make and cute to give away as gifts. There are also cheap enough to make a resale profit. 

These wine bags can be used for all occasions like birthdays gifts, wedding gifts, party favors, house warming, etc. I think else are my new favorite DIY gift item to make. 

Materials used: Burlap wine bag, Iron on Vinyl, and Circuit Explorer Air 2 and Craft tools 

To place an order for this Holiday Wine Bag or a personalized design email passionlockedblog@gmail.com or visit my Instagram account.

DIY Project | Hexagon Shape Shelf

Hello Passionistas!

I’m excited to share with you, my first DIY project video.

How to make Hexagon Shaped Shelves out of popsicle sticks?

This project was super simple to make and cost less than $20.00

I hung the shelves on the wall near the entry way of my apartment. This is also where I have my storage ottoman to store my shoes and handbags. I thought the wall decor gave this area a little more character.

Making the perfect personalized gifts (Blogmas Day 18)

We are like a week away from Christmas…. and everyday I get more and more excited….

 

Today, I am going to show you one of the personalized christmas gifts, I made for a friend with my Cricut Air 2.

I found this oversized flask at CVS in the gift section for hoilday stocking stuffers. It was $9.99, at the time I purchased it I had no clue what I would do with it. But I turnt it into the perfect gift.

I used my circut air 2 machine to to cut vinyl of a “R” and the name “Rasheena” (my friend’s name. Using transfer paper I put the “R” on first, centered or course. Then, the name “Rasheena” across.

Normally I order my vinyl in bulk from Vinyl Expressions or Amazon. But the patterned vinyl, used for the “R” is from Hobby Lobby- a 12 X 12 sheet only $1.99.

Ornaments for Christmas (Blogmas Day 13)

Happy Blogmas Day 13!!!

Growing up my mom would buy special ornaments for me to put on the tree every year. It would always be of something I was interested in as a child. I loved that tradition and even now she still has those ornaments on the tree year after year.

As an adult, I now buy a special new ornament to place on my tree every year. Last year I was lucky enough two ornaments.

Belle from Beauty and the Best- which is my favorite Disney movie.

The 2016 Holiday Barbie- which is a gift I could expect every year.

This year it has been hard to find that special ornament. I mean I have been the the Christmas tree shoppe and multiple Hobby Lobby stores… nothing!!!

Today, I found one to my liking.

This year I graduated with my Masters’ degree- so this personalized graduation ornament is perfect for my collection.

  • Jingle til you tingle

  • Go elf yourself
  • Cheers grinches

Starbucks for the Holidays (Blogmas Day 8)

Happy Friday!!!! It’s Blogmas Day 8…

It’s cold outside and I was in need of a good latte. This is my favorite time a year at starbucks.

My favorite drink is the Warm Sugar Cookie latte from the Starbucks secret menu.

Below is a snapshot of how to order the secret menu item. I order it so much at that starbuck near my job that they know what to do when I say I want a “Sugar Cookie” latte. Now, let me tell you… this latte is amazing. It taste just like a warm cookie straight out of the oven.

During my latest visit to Starbucks, I picked up this Teavana Joy 2017 tea pack and Teavana Passion Tango (packaged). The Joy 2017 tea pack was on promotion for $10.95 with a $5.00 gift card. This is a great little deal. I’m definitely gonna use this gift as a stocking stuffer gift for someone’s christmas gift (lol).
