    Christmas recap and Last warm day…

    Ohhhh looks good doesn’t it?? Well, Joe worked on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Our Christmas celebration was moved to Thursday night. Starting with this Roast that I know I should not have bought. However, you only live once, right? The carrots and potatoes where cooked in with that meat. Can you say YUMMMMM? After that we moved on to gifts. Joe and I decided only to do stocking stuffers. Yeah, that did not work to well. I did get a few things in my stocking. Joe had a pretty full one too. However, I thing this one is my favorite… Now if you do not know me… I am…

    Merry Christmas 2019

    Mooch wanted to be the first one to wish you a Merry Christmas! He starts his Christmas with this chair. What do I mean?? When I moved in with all my boxes he was not sure what was going on. I moved in, in April. And then in November and I brought all these boxes up from the basement he started acting super weird. Both Joe and I noticed. Until this chair was put in place and the lights turned on. That is when he became the Christmas Kitty. During the winter months this chair is out and yes, plugged in, Thankfully he is one happy kitty. Here is another…

    Happy Christmas Eve on the Homestead

    If you know me… You know for sure I love to decorate for Christmas. This year I got a late start, BUT… Here is how it all turned out! From the foyer, top left, and to the kitchen table. The old wood, evergreens of all types, to the cardinals. It just helps to bring the outside in. Our Christmas tree in the family room, fireplace, the stocking are hung, but not in the picture, sorry. All doorways are adorn with evergreens. Remember, I try to decorate more for the season, so the snowmen will stay with us thru January and into February. Yes, I decorate the bathroom too! Lastly the…

    Happy Treats

    Fun treats with a bonus!! The bonus is the extra pair of gloves. The Treat is candy!! These super cute Snowmen are perfect for the nieces and nephews for just a small treat. ALL of the faces are different because just like a snowflake no snowman is exactly the same!! However, if you are not comfortable doing the mouth by hand, the trio punch has the perfect mouth size ovals. The Chalk marker is just one way to make the eyes, I chose to use the shimmer paint. I owe a huge thank you to my friend Selene, a stampin’ sister, for this SUPER CUTE idea! In addition to her…

    Deck the Halls with Light

    The trio of paper lanterns for Christmas. The Christmas is Gleaming bundle (153006) is on low inventory (at time of post). So, I thought I would post quick. I have seen the lanterns in several shapes, I did triangles. Stitched Shape Circles for the two smaller and Nested Labels for the larger. Each uses a full sheet of cardstock, just the heights vary. All three decorated just slightly different. Colors are the same. I know you see the DSP and it is already no longer available, I am sorry! However, you could put a layer of Pretty Peacock that is embossed and add some frost shimmer paint on the raised…
