Christmas Wreath: Hang some Holiday Cheer on your door. Starting to think about Christmas Decorations? Start your Christmas off right with a fun, funky or beautiful Christmas Wreath. Be sure to check out the rest of our Christmas Ideas and Inspiration. Ok…confession time. Sometimes I think WAY too hard about things that are super unimportant. I know this is probably not a shocker to most of you who have been reading my blog for awhile (thanks by the way!!). I mean like life-saving-end-of-the-world focus for simple-small-I-should-have-decided-this-hours-ago issues. Case in point: I have been AGONIZING over a new Christmas wreath...Read More
Lately, we have been teaching my daughter about the calendar and dates for special events. With her little sister’s birthday party a few weeks ago, like any 3 year old, she immediately started talking about her own birthday party (which is in June). We went through the whole list of holidays and family members who have birthdays before hers. This conversation has happened SEVERAL times. During one of our lists of birthdays we explained Christmas as being “Jesus’ birthday”. Being the adorable little detail oriented, OCD princess that she is…Christmas is now Jesus’ Birthday Party! So of course, being...Read More
Growing up, there were few foods my brother and I could agree on. Most of the time if he loved it, I hated it and if I loved it, he hated it. Imagine the joy for my mother cooking meals with two kids who could never agree on any food… I am so grateful that my girls pretty much love the same foods. The major exception to the love/hate food relationship was my mom’s peanut blossom cookies. She would make up a big batch and put them in cookie tins. It was like we have radar for those cookies. ...Read More
Have you ever walked down the candy cane aisle at the grocery store? I did this today. In the midst of my normal, chaotic food shopping trip, my daughter and I took a little stroll down the candy cane aisle…and I had some thoughts… Thought #1: When did candy canes become an item that gets its own AISLE? I mean canned fruit/canned vegetables and soup share an aisle, but there is an entire aisle dedicated to candy canes (albeit only during the Christmas season) Thought #2: I can’t get over the variety of flavors and brands…it seems every candy...Read More
Ok…so I am totally OBSESSED with Chalkboards!!! In August I created this Back to School Chalkboard for my daughter’s first day of Preschool and fell in love with using chalkboards in decor!!! When I started playing around with Christmas designs, I found myself continually gravitating back to chalkboards. I kept trying to include Chalkboards in all my designs!! It was clear to me there was only one thing to do… Create a Christmas Party design full of Chalkboards! I know, right:) I mixed in some of my FAVORITE fonts and some awesome candy canes prints to give it that...Read More
Whew…I feel like just yesterday it was Thanksgiving and all of a sudden a WHOLE WEEK of December is past. I don’t know about ya’ll, but my Christmas season is uber busy!! Between Christmas parties and Dance Recitals and my Emma turning two…I’m ready for a vacation!!! Despite the hustle and bustle, this is hands down my favorite time of year…I love Christmastime!!! I wanted to make a fun Christmas Party design this year. I was back and forth about what kind of Christmas design I really felt this year and ultimately I decided on a Rudolph/Reindeer Party theme. ...Read More
