I love the holidays. Any holiday really. It's a great excuse to pull out our box of craft supplies that we've collected over the years and use our imaginations! And I especially love encouraging our little one’s creativity. We try to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests, their school friends or even their favorite teachers! Hopefully you already checked out our Snowman Jars, which were a HUGE hit. Now, we're excited to share our second Christmas craft idea.. these hot cocoa reindeer jars! Everything you need to make hot cocoa, all wrapped up in a festive little jar that’s easy for the kids to make! Click the link in our bio or swipe up in stories for the step-by-step. .

There’s something about a good, homemade stuffing (or dressing as some call it) that makes the whole Thanksgiving meal that much better. I have tried a number of different types of stuffing in my years, but I always found them to be very soggy and while many love it that way, I’m just not a fan of the mush. Once we had kids and I started wanting to cook entire thanksgiving feasts by myself, I realized that without the perfect stuffing recipe, my feast was going to be more of a flop. Over the years, I finally perfected the recipe and now, I’m excited to share it with all of you on the blog today (link is in my bio or you can swipe up in stories).

Apparently, it’s my birthday 🎂 … Isn’t it funny how as you get older, your birthday gets less and less exciting? I used to do a countdown, like a month in advance. I would remind everyone I saw. It was ridiculous. Now, if it wasn’t for the 3049823048 notifications that I get from FB, from all of the people that I haven’t heard from since last year, I might not even remember it’s my birthday at all. But since the cat’s out of the bag, yes, it’s my birthday. I’m 35 + shipping and handling and feel every bit my age, especially when I try to keep up with my kids . I’m spending the day packing for my birthday vacation (whoop!) and look forward to celebrating with my family! Since I can’t take you all with me, I’ve joined a bunch of really awesome bloggers to give away $430 on the blog today! So take a minute, click on the #linkinbio or swipe up in stories and enter to win! What would you do with the extra money?

While I do talk about it in DMs when people reach out, it occurred to me that many of you are unaware of my other blog, @thesuperblogcoach. The story behind it is that I had a couple of incredible women who taught me what I needed to know to become a successful blogger and influencer so I could support my family through this fun career. I wanted to make sure I did the same for others. It got difficult repeating things over and over again so I decided to create a site where I would blog solely about tips for bloggers and influencers, no matter where in their journey they are. That way, I could direct people over there and they can read at their own speed. I don’t charge for any of the info. It’s totally free. Just my way of paying it forward. I hope you’ll check it out and if you have anything you’re currently struggling with, let me know. I’ll add it to my topic list for future blog posts! Now tell me, did you know about thesuperblogcoach.com?

In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

How to Grow Your Small Shop Wardrobe on a Budget

If you’re reading this then you probably don’t have a money tree growing in the backyard.  When we were searching for a new home, that was the top priority on my list but sadly, the realtor informed me that all of the good money tree houses were already taken.   Boo hoo!

When you are a small shop lover like we are, it can be super expensive (unless my husband is reading this and then I should say that all of Falynn’s small shop clothing was free… wink! wink!)  A small shop t-shirt will run you $25, on average.  A pair of pants can be in the $30-$40 range.  And dresses and rompers?  Yikes!  Those can be $60-$75!  We can just as easily go to Old Navy or Target and pick up 5 or more pieces for the price of one small shop item, but we don’t.  Why?  We love sporting unique threads. We love the quality. We love handmade.  Most of all, we because we love supporting the family behind the shop.

Tee: Little Wonderland Clothing, Pants: Cute Little Babes, Shoes: Zulily

So how do you stay a small shop supporter without going broke?  Here are my secrets:

Look for Sales:  Follow your favorite shops on Instagram and Facebook and check with them on a regular basis. Most will have sales, some even offer up to 50% off occasionally!  Don’t let that sale get away.  You can stock up on your favorite brands at a fraction of the cost.  Don’t forget to take pictures and tag the shops!  It will show the shop what ya got in case you decide to enter their next rep search!

Join VIP Pages: Did you know that lots of small shops have VIP group pages on Facebook?! They will often host giveaways, have contests and offer a special discount code for their VIP customers.  Search for those groups and join, join, join!

Look for B/S/T Groups: Buy, Sell, Trade is the greatest thing ever, in my opinion.  It’s a place for reps to sell their gently used small shop items and a place for other reps to purchase those items at a great discount!  One of my favorites is Insta-Style Baby + Mama BST.  Make sure to join!  The Chaos tank and Tell Me About it Stud tee that Falynn is wearing were purchased in that group.  SO many great finds there!

Follow Closet Pages on Instagram: Find reps that are a size or two bigger than your little one and find out if they have a closet page on Instagram.  You’ll be surprised to find how many do and how many awesome small shop items you can snag from them at a great price!

Look for Rep Share Codes:  Lots of shops offer their reps a share code for their followers. Look out for them on their posts.  Don’t be afraid to read the captions… you can find coupon code treasures inside, plus you will get to know people behind the account a little bit more, which is a huge plus!

Join FB Brand Rep Groups:  Make sure you are joining brand rep community groups on Facebook.  Shop owners will often post their sales, or offer a larger discount in exchange for promotion and/or pictures!

Enter Brand Team Searches: If you love a shop and can comply with their terms, don’t be afraid to enter their brand team search!   Brand Reps, Enthusiasts and Fans all receive a significant discount in exchange for photos and promotion.

Request Collabs: Collabs are the next best thing to being a brand rep. Some may even argue that it’s even better!  You can collaborate with small shops who are in need of photos or promotion in exchange for free or discounted items.  There is usually no contract involved.  I absolutely love Collaboration Nation on Facebook.  It’s a great place to connect with shops that are looking for collabs.  We’ve made so many great connections through the group.  You can also download the Collabor8 app and sign up as an influencer!  You can request to work with shops you love and set up your profile so shops can connect with you if they like what you’re offering.

Now that you’ve read my secrets, I want to hear yours.  How do you save money while shopping small? Comment below and let us know!

Don’t forget to check out more tips for brand reps!
