Personal Goals for 2018

Well 2017 is over and I have to say it was a bitter sweet year for us.  As many of you may know the final months have been quite difficult to say the least.  We suffered a loss of our pup Nemo and the loss of my husband’s cousin.  We also embarked on our kitchen reno project that we are still working on.  Yeah 2017 was a bitter sweet year.  We managed to bring in the New Year with my hubby and FIL working again on our kitchen.  Although my in laws went home early (poor things were exhausted), Harvey continued working until close to midnight.  We did manage to ring in the New Year with our girls.  Yes 2017 is over and it was a crazy year, now I’m ready to crush my 2018 goals!

YouTube and Blog Goals for 2018

Hello my wonderful friends!  I hope you are all doing great this wonderful (but cold) morning!  SO it has been a very long holiday season for us here at Casa de HNC.  We have had some sad moments this past Thanksgiving season and have had some set backs in our kitchen renovation – I’ll share a life update soon explaining in detail what has happened.  Today I wanted to share with you a little bit of what I have planned for the New Year (can you believe we are weeks away from 2018! Yikes!! Time is zooming by!)  I have learned so much being a Blogger and Youtuber and want to continue to grow and share what I’ve learned along the way with my wonderful friends YOU!  Okay enough of my gibber gabber, let’s get on with the goals: Continue reading

DIY Moana Inspired Palm Trees

A while ago we celebrated my youngest daughters birthday.  She was turning 10 and wanted a Moana themed birthday party.  I prefer to DIY as much of my kids party decor as I can because a) it’s sometimes cheaper for me to use whatever left over products I have and b)  I’m crazy like that and like to torture myself with extra work!

I recruited my daughter to help me with this project and I have to say it was a super simple project and we had so much fun working together.  So let’s get started..

What you’ll need..

  • Bamboo skewers (Dollar Tree or Supermarket) cut in half
  • Paper towel rolls or toilet paper
  • Brown paper bags
  • tape or glue
  • Green Paper
  • 2″ foam ball (Dollar Tree or Craft store) cut in half
  • Flower Pot  (Dollar Tree)
  • rocks (Dollar tree)

Directions…

Thank you so much for joining me today.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and if you do create your own palm trees, please make sure to share your talents with me on Instagram using the hashtag #hipnreative or tag me @hipncreative so I can peep your mad skills and cheer you on!
