A Crafty Christmas

I love carving time out to get glitter and glue everywhere!  Making holiday ornaments and gifts are one of  my favorite things to do.  I am trying to make most of my gifts include a handmade element.  Even if it’s just something special on the wrapping.  Inspiration comes from everywhere!  Pinterest, blogs, friends.  I had a wonderful time this past Saturday getting crafty with my sis in law at Karla Nathan’s Romantic Cottage Christmas Workshop.  What are you working on for the holidays?

Cozy Christmas Swap!

Ladies!  I know….the holidays are crazy enough as it is!  But if you’re like me….it’s truly my favorite time to shop and get crafty!  Not to mention it’s nice to receive something from a likeminded friend…..hubby means well but…..one year I thought I’d make it crystal clear what I wanted and showed him my Amazon Wish List.  Yep……he ordered the things I’d marked I wanted for the boys – FOR ME!!! Got to love him!  And I actually do love my army blanket!

Thankful for the Little Things

The Holiday Season is here!  I am spending my spare time decorating, crafting and spending time with the people who mean the most to me.  I hope you are doing the same!  Here are a few photos of what I’ve been up to.  And there is still time to join in the Celebration Fun this Friday Night.  See my last post for details!

We grew these fun gourds on a tunnel in the garden. I love these handmade pedastels from Constance Lenore located at Rag & Bone in the West Bottoms.
