Now that we are in to the new year, my life has quieted down. Hence, I have time again to post.
So buckle up, it's going to be a long one!
The great room is a different story. This room is holly, jolly. This is the room where the family tree goes. And, you know what I mean by "family tree". The family tree is the tree with all of the ornaments the kids handmade in school. This is the tree with the collection of Hallmark ornaments I bought for each child. This is the tree with the tinsel on it. Yes, I said tinsel. Martha and all the other decorating gurus may think it is tacky, but my tree would not be the same without it. God bless it, I say!
Every year, I add one or two new treasures to my decoration collection and this year I discovered a wonderful sight with the most delightful printables. Announced Design has announcements, cards and printable artwork to die for!this darling story that I gave out as neighbor gifts to my friends with small children. It even comes with a recipe and gift tags. If the glowing thank-you's from my friends are any indication, it was a definite hit.
She has some cute Valentines Day printables as well. Be sure to check it out.
my favorite raisin bars and gingerbread men and whipped up some gift baskets with hot chocolate mix and games. Baking for friends is one of my favorite Christmas traditions.
Happy New Year everyone! May it be a blessed and peaceful one for us all.
