I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but when the creative juices start flowing, you follow them. 🎅🏼 This is a take on my Santa and reindeer pie from two years ago (swipe to see that one), but in color! 🌈 To make the stars, I splattered white food coloring on the blue crust using a paint brush before adding the other pieces.

Hats off to all the moms out there. Because mommin’ ain’t easy. Being a mom has its exhausting days. Today was that day. But even on the worst days, it’s still my favorite job. 🤪 Oh, and here’s a picture of our mantle with all the trimmings. 🎄 Hope you all had a wonderful Saturday.

First THANK YOU to everyone who sent DM’s, texts, comments, and shared me in their stories to support me on #thanksgivingpiefight ❤️ A special thank you to my amazing friends who organized a viewing party. The entire process was truly an amazing experience that I will never forget. ❤️ . In other news, we might not have a tree yet, but that didn’t stop me from making homemade ornaments with my friend @jagtang8162 and the boys. ❤️ We used fondant impression mats to create the designs then added velvet ribbon so we can hang them. 🎄 Also, K must really want to do an under the sea theme, because he only used the seahorse and mermaid cookie cutters but then refused to let me bake them off to harden them. 🙃🧜‍♀️ #homemade #ornaments #tistheseason #christmas #christmasdecor

Guess what I did with all that rosemary I found in our garden? I made a wreath! My husband came home and asked where all the rosemary from my stories was. I showed him the wreath. He said, “Only you would take rosemary and make a wreath with it.” 🤣 If you have watched my stories today then you know this is not what this space looks like now. This wreath is now over the mantle in the sitting room. ☺️ Lastly, let me know if you’d like me to write up a blog post on how I built this side table. It was a simple build, and it made this space more functional. 🙌🏼 P.S. I linked the ceramic trees and velvet ribbon via LIKEtoKNOW.it ❤️ @liketoknow.it #liketkit http://liketk.it/2GNA0 #LTKholidaystyle #LTKholidayathome #LTKhome

I have officially started decking all the halls! 🎅🏼🎄If you read the caption from my last post, you know I’m going for a neutral and simple theme with whites, woods, brass, and incorporating some of my favorite vintage items. 🕯 The vintage egg basket was a a find at a local festival last month. The large butter crock and some of the brass candlesticks were gifted to me from my mom. ❤️ I don’t have any greenery yet because it’s too early still, but I am loving how this years theme is coming together. 🌲🌲🌲 Hope you all are having a wonderful Saturday.

Happy Thursday friends! I’m not in full “deck the halls” mode yet, but I have started pulling decor together for this years theme. Last year we were all about the traditional red and green. This year we are taking a simplistic approach with handmade ornaments, cozy stockings, and brass as the accent color for this years Christmas theme. 🎄 What’s your theme this year? Have you started decorating for Christmas yet? P.S. I linked most of the items pictures if you’re interested via LIKEtoKNOW.it ❤️ http://liketk.it/2GDNW #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKholidaystyle #LTKhome #jcrewalways #cratestyle #christmasdecor #tistheseason #homedecor #christmasinspo

🚨 I’ve got two exciting things to share with you all! Sorry for the long caption, but I think it will be worth it. 😉 1. I sent off for a printed copy of my book, The Detailed Pie!!! As long as everything looks as expected, it will be available for purchase just in time for the holidays. Ekk! 🙌🏼 2. I have been bursting at the seams to tell you all and NOW I finally can!!! 💃🏻 I am going to be on @foodnetwork with three other amazing pie makers @arlodesigns @theculinarysketchartist @iofthetyler !!!!! Make sure to tune in on Thursday, November 14th at 9pm ET/PT to watch the premiere of Thanksgiving Pie Fight! #thanksgivingpiefight #pie #pieart #piemaker #pielove #baker #adventuresinbaking #pieseason

Who doesn’t love a before and after picture? This was the first room I made over after we moved in. We did makeover the kitchen before this room, but we had not moved in yet. I told my hubby that redoing the kitchen had to happen before I agreed to buy the house. 😂 Swipe 👉🏼 to see some more before and after pics. ☺️ Happy Saturday friends.

Happy November friends!! It snowed here yesterday, so it’s all fair game to let the Christmas posts begin. 🌲🙌🏼 These homemade marshmallows are a favorite at my office. 🤤 I’m going to be real honest. I do not like store bought marshmallows. Not even a little bit. I honestly only tolerated marshmallows when in S’more form. BUT homemade marshmallows are on a whole other level and they are pretty simple to make. Sticky, but simple. The recipe in on the blog. Click the link in my bio and scroll until you see Homemade Marshmallows. Link in bio. Hope you all have a wonderful Friday. Xo

It was a terribly cold day that ended in snow, so we decided to stay in, order pizza, and have some friends over so our kids could play together. This was the first year that we didn’t go trick or treating, but we made the most out of it. ❤️ With tomorrow starting the new month, this will be the last fall scene you see in this space. Christmas will be taking over all the spaces very soon and I can’t wait to show you all what I have planned. 🌲🌲Hope you all had a safe and wonderful Halloween.

Don’t worry about me. I’m just living my best basic life, one basic post at a time. 💁🏻‍♀️🤣 But for reals, I bought a new winter coat this year. I’ve been sporting my other one for the past 5 years and thought it was time. I absolutely LOVE it in all its Sherpa goodness. 😍 I’ve been wanting a Sherpa coat for the past two years but couldn’t bring myself to buy one because I had a perfectly good coat. So I finally did it and I don’t have one single ounce of buyers remorse. I Hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday.

I made these spook-tacular chocolate spider cupcakes for K’s preschool parent bake-off tomorrow. 🕸 I always get excited about this event! My husband would say I take it too seriously. He’s not lying. 🤣 Check my stories to see how I made the web. The spider’s body and eyes are made out of fondant. The legs are made out of chocolate.

It’s the perfect day to sleep in and that’s exactly what we did. 😴 I switched up the bedroom a little. I’m not sure if it’s too simple or not. 🤔 What do you guys think? Should I add something to the wall or take down the hanging taper candle holders? 🕯 Also, this is the most beautiful bedding I’ve ever owned! 💚 When I first saw the quilt and sham I was like, gimme! I seriously started to drool. 🤤 If you all know me, then you know I love all things green. Anyway, today I will be baking some treats and sharing in my stories if you all want to see. Happy Saturday!

I promise I’ll go back to my regular baking and home decor posts, but wanted to show you all our costumes. If you watched my stories a few weeks ago, I was looking for a pink sweater, and ended up finding one at Goodwill for $2! 🙌🏼 Now we are ready for the children’s museum haunted hotel of spells haunted house. 👻 I love to do family Halloween costumes if you can’t tell. 😂 We décides on Toy Story for this year because K wanted to be Forky. My hubby will be Buzz Lightyear and I’m still trying to talk my oldest in to dressing up with us on actual Halloween day, but I think that’s a lost cause. 😭 #halloweencostume #familycostumes #toystory #toystorybarbie #forky #boymom

Did you all catch my F🍁LL inspired charcuterie board from a couple weeks ago? Almost everything is from @traderjoes and I must say, if you have not had the chocolate mousse pumpkins, make sure you grab some before they stop selling them for the season. They are heaven in your mouth. 🤤 #traderjoes #charcuterieboard #charcuterie #cheeseboard #cheese #fallvibes

Hi! 👋🏼 I’ve gained some new friends these past few weeks and thought I would pop in to introduce the face behind @acarriedaffairdesigns and share some facts about me. 1) My name is Carrie. I have two boys and married to an executive chef. I constantly have people saying, “you guys must eat well” with me being an amateur baker and my husband being a chef. Nope. We like to eat frozen pizza and mini corn dogs. 😜 2) I get major anxiety when I do videos. Which is why I don’t do them as often as I should. I’m working on that. 🙃 3) I order the same drink from Starbucks Monday-Friday. Venti blonde roast with cream and classic. ☕️ All the staff know me by name. Not sure if that’s a good thing. 🤔 The Starbucks app has been a game changer for me and now only makes me fashionably late. 😬 4) I passed my black belt in lean six sigma last year and work full time for a financial company as an IT Consultant. 🤓 5) I love to bake! Pies especially! I’ve been working on my pie book for almost a year and plan to have it out very very soon. 🥧 6) I do not like pumpkin spice anything. Sorry. 🤭 I do like pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin pie though. 7) Green is my favorite color. At this point I could just tell people to follow the yellow brick road if they need directions to my house. #emeraldcity Well that’s it! If you made it this far here’s a virtual hug. 🤗 Thank you so much for sticking around and following me on my IG journey. This place truly is a community with a lot of amazing and talented people so you choosing to follow me means the world. 🌎 Xo - Carrie #introduction

Happy SUNDAY!! Do you all know Tara @tarateaspoon ?!? She is a brillant food stylist that,at one time, made the food for Martha Stewart Living magazine! Say what?!? How do I know that? I stalked her feed. 😉 Don’t act like you don’t do that sometimes. 🤣 Anyway, I got the idea to make these chocolate tree topped vanilla cupcakes from her. Go check Tara @tarateaspoon out! I’ll post a video on how I made the pumpkins soon. I did have (or thought I had) made a video of the trees, but apparently I wasn’t recording. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #fail

The colder months might be setting in, but gardening is a year round task. I organized the potting station in our garage. I don’t have a shed so I’m making the most with what we have. One day I’ll have a she-shed just like Cheryl. 🤣 Check my stories to see how I built the peg shelf over the table. It is a super easy build and cost right at $25 for all the materials. 🙌🏼 #gardening #gardener #organization #homeinspo #garageorganization #gardenlife #gardentools #bhghome #countrylivingmag #terraindigs

I was inspired by my sweet friend Cynthia @cynthia_harper_ to do the #2days200dollars challenge and I am happy to say I successfully did it. 🙌🏼 I spent $80 total on paint & paint supplies. If you don’t already follow Cynthia @cynthia_harper_ run to her page and see the progress on the space she is currently doing for her #2days200dollars challenge. It’s a dream. 😍 . Swipe 👉🏼 to see what this space looked like before. I scored the mirror at a flea market two years ago. I had it on a different wall for awhile then it went into storage. I thought it was perfect for the Victorian look I was going for. I kept the same hardware and decided to use the goodies I found at the festival yesterday in this space. What do you think?!?
