Christmas season is upon us!

My mind is in craft mode for the holidays!

I definitely need to make a list of the things I want to make this year, my only worry is how long the list is going to get!

I love looking at pictures from past Christmasses....here are a few I'd like to share with you!








My son's 6th Birthday party is this Sunday...after I finish preparing a great party for him I'm free to spend the coming weeks on Christmas!!!

Imagine, Improvise & Invent

Beautiful! I love both of your trees, especially how you decorated the one tree, by using ribbon, but leaving spiral:)

What beautiful decorations! I especially love the little trees in the dining room corner. My daughter's birthday is Dec 2, so I don't get to decorate until after her party - then the pressure's on! (visiting from Creation Corner)

Our own pictures can be a big help to us, inspirationally and otherwise. I was looking at last year's Christmas last night. Thanksgiving isn't at our house this year so the fall stuff was packed up last night. I decided not to tackle the task of bringing Christmas downstairs, but we are ready. (and the house is bare looking) Thanks for sharing!

It was just bliss looking through your photos. I do have 2 Q's though - if you have time to answer them. 1. Where did you source the neat tall candles from? 2. How did you hang your Christmas stockings? We are renting at the present moment, so I'm not sure what to do with ours as I can't just pop some hooks in.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!
