Merry Christmas 2018!

It's December 1st and I would love to be one of the first to wish you a "Merry Christmas"! 


This month is probably full of a whirlwind of activity for you---and if you're like me, your calendar has been jam-packed since October and your head has already started spinning!  Ha!  But, I just wanted to remind you (and myself!) to take a few moments every day to sit back, relax, and enjoy this time of the year!

The holidays are always a little bittersweet as we spend yet another year without my Daddy, but as our family grows older, we begin new traditions and make new memories.  This year I have many exciting things planned---Elf on the Shelf (with a spin), Christmas Activities, fun events, personal reflection, and more! 

I invite you to join me and catch a glimpse of the Beccard Family Christmas, the Sparkle & Fizz Way, as well as share some of your own family traditions and activities this month with me on Facebook or on Instagram!  And if you need a reprieve from all the hustle and bustle of the year, I hope you come and spend a couple of hours crafting with me at one of my Upcoming Events.  Or, even better yet, secure a date to Party with me before they all fill up!

And lastly, remember: "Glory to GOD in the highest, and on Earth peace, goodwill toward men. -- Luke 2:14"

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Podcast Episode 4: Accountability

How many of you feel like you're on a never-ending hamster wheel, just running and running and running?  Do you blame the wheel for moving too fast or too slow?  Do you blame the cage for not having any space?  Or do you figure out that you need to stop, get off the wheel and get out of the cage to endless space? I think we all have those seasons in our lives where we easily blame the wheel or the cage.  And the difference between staying on the wheel and blaming it for staying on it and stopping, getting off and getting OUT is our ability to take accountability. Take a listen to this week's podcast and let me know if it inspires you to stop running on the wheel and instead, figure out how to stop, get off the wheel, and get out of the cage.

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel
