This is our first Christmas with our daughter, FINALLY, after waiting for her to come for 8 years. So, it has been especially special. When Justin woke up, he turned to me and said “Is our present awake?” And that is exactly how I feel too. This Christmas season has been even more poignant because now I […]
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Enjoy your family, talk and play and don’t forget to cuddle by a warm fire, with some hot chocolate! And just in case you don’t have a fireplace, here is a little gift from me to you!
Well, y’all know I love to dress up. And what is better than dressing up? Having your friends dress up too! About a year ago, I saw on a friend’s blog that she went to a tacky Christmas sweater party and I have been planning on having one ever since. And we did. Here is […]
Thank you all for your wonderful comments. It literally brightened my morning and has made my day. I realize you are all busy, so thank you so much for lifting my spirits! One such comment brought my attention to another fabulous paper Christmas ornament. And even if we don’t have time for it this year, we […]
I know I am cutting it a little close, I mean Santa is coming in a few short days…. But now that we have Etta, I decided I wanted new stockings. Growing up my mom made us some really fun crocheted granny square stockings, that just spoke Christmas. So, I just really wanted yarn stockings. […]

I thought today would be a good day to reflect on the season. We have just enough time to calm down and enjoy it, before it goes flying by! Love ya all! I hope you have a second for this little video! I thought it was a perfect reminder of the true meaning and reason for […]
I just can’t get over the ideas people have for cool paper Christmas decorations… I just keep finding them. It is like I am drawn to them. For Example: Here is a cute pinwheel from Stephie over at Made by Stephie check out the instructions there!
Well, I am excited to have my first guest post today. Her idea fits in perfectly with the 12 Days of Paper Christmas I’ve been working on (and finally finished today…It was a ton of work! YAHOO!) Also this would be a perfect addition to today’s tree. Just like a little cherry on top…only it’s […]
….on the twelfth day of Christmas my blog friend gave to me…. Recycled Magazine Tree You will need an old magazine for this project. First you begin by folding down the pages like so. Until you’ve done this to every individual page in the magazine. Then you fold them in half again. It will then look […]
….on the eleventh day of Christmas my blog friend gave to me…. This would have been the perfect 9th day, for Nine ladies dancing. I just didn’t get them done in time. And so they are now the eleventh day, so oh well. Lets just change the song to say Eleven Ladies Leaping? Huh? What do […]
….on the tenth day of Christmas my blog friend gave to me…. Paper Leaf Wreath This takes a bit of time cutting out leaves, but after that it is a snap. Why yes, that is an old pizza box… the top actually. Take two bowls and draw an outer ring and an inner ring. Cut […]
