I fell asleep while Lisa was decorating the Christmas tree and woke up in a Christmas collar! 
She's bonkers about decorating for the holidays.

In the d├ęcor world, an odd number of decorations is usually more visually pleasing than even numbers which is why my two little Christmas dogs looked a little sad and lonely. I wanted to make a DIY vertical Christmas sign to fill that visual void but I don’t have big stencils to paint it or fancy die cutting machine to use viral letters.  Instead I used my crafty BFF Mod Podge to make a weather resistant outdoor decoration.

Yes! You can use Mod Podge on outdoor decorating projects and it will brave the elements – as long as you use the right formula. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how!

Air Fryer Falafel Recipe and Hamilton Beach Giveaway!

This post and giveaway are sponsored by Hamilton Beach. I have received the a Hamilton Beach Air Fryer for review, however, all opinions are my own. #ad #HamiltonBeach

I love a good falafel but hate the idea of the big mess it makes when you deep fry it on the stove in the kitchen. The idea of my chickpea goodness swimming in a pot of oil before it hits my plate and into my belly.  But not so, when you make falafel in an air fryer!

Keeping reading and I'll teach you how to make this easy air fryer falafel recipe! Pin this post to your Pinterest boards for later! Share it with your friends!
