Butterfly Hair Clips

There’s just something about creating hair clips that gets me so excited.  I love adding a little something extra girly to my girls’ outfits.  The fun part is that I can now say girls because Avery’s hair is long enough to hold a hair clip.  So what if it’s only long enough to keep it out of her eyes?  She still looks too cute.  Last year I created Heart Hair Clips and then turned them into Hair Clip Valentines which includes a free printable.  This year I went with butterfly hair clips and I have to tell you, I absolutely adore these.  They were so simple to put together and they are just too stinkin’ cute.  Plus, I turned them into a Valentine this year too so be sure to grab the free printable down at the bottom.

Chocolate Peppermint Holiday Cupcakes

Since we are in full swing for holiday entertaining, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, I created Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes which will make the perfect holiday dessert.  As you’ve seen from my Mason Jar Peppermint Cupcakes and Peppermint Mini Bundt Cakes I have a thing for peppermint lately.  I decided this time I wanted to try something other than red velvet cake though.  I decided to go with Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes with a little surprise inside that make these cupcakes out of this world and the perfect Christmas Recipe.

I definitely outdid myself with these perfectly packaged Minty Stocking Stuffer Ideas.  They are going to put you over the top with their snowman jelly jar packaging and perfect top hats.
