Christmas is getting closer and closer! The entire month of December has went by so fast and the holiday season has really thrown me for a loop. It’s been crazy trying to get everything done in time. But while we wait for the big day, we still have time to link up and party at the Twirl & Take a Bow Party.
There are trends that everyone just absolutely loves. There are also trends that are classic and look great in a variety of decor. Such as, the chalkboard trend. It’s been around for a while and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere… Why would it? It’s great. Whatever style of home you have, you can make a chalkboard work.
One of my favorite projects of all time is the set of DIY Photo Collage Letters that I created for my daughter’s graduation party. I wanted to have a photo board at the party, but I wanted something different and special. It was perfect for her party, which lead me to the idea of using the same concept in my Christmas decor.
How do you welcome people home for the holidays? Do you hang a wreath on the door or put candles in the windows? Maybe you string lights along the landscaping. Each year I try to create a warm and welcoming outdoor scene for Christmas. I want my friends and family to get a little Christmas spirit before they even walk through the front door.
Today’s a big day. It’s my birthday! Let’s not discuss the number, but relish on the fact that today is my special day. There won’t be balloons or even a cake, but it’s my day…and I’ll take it… ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’m also participating in the 12 Days of Christmas with a group of amazing bloggers.
Have you ever had a dream? Specifically a dream about having the perfect decorative piece for your home. I’m talking about the one thing that would make the room complete. Or the one simple thing that would be ideal…if you could only find it. I’m referring to the absolute…without a doubt…best tree skirt for my Christmas tree.
Some of my favorite Christmas ornaments are the ones that are handmade. Hallmark ornaments are gorgeous and the personalized ones from the mall are so cute, but nothing beats the paper tree or the pine cone reindeer that my littles ones made. I hang them lovingly on the tree each year, because they are more precious to me than any others we have.
I think we can all agree that a great DIY or handmade gift can mean so much more than the most expensive gift in the store. Handmade gifts are made with love and are personalized specifically for the recipient. Care and thought goes into the entire process, from the idea to the completion of the project.
