Merry Christmas!

Well, the season is upon us and, I have to say that Christmas really is the most wonderful time of the year. I love how sparkly and pretty the house is, I love the smells of cinnamon and apple cider, I love our relatively new family tradition of gathering all the women in our family (four generations are represented!) who are home during Christmas and planning a treat-making day and baking, I love the kids’ programs at school and church, I love that we are celebrating the birth of Jesus and I love creating an environment that makes my kids smile.

Sparkly Christmas Wreath

I’ve decided I want to make ornament wreath for all upcoming holidays! So easy and affordable to make.

*October 10, 2012 – Thank you for the wonderful compliments about my wreaths. Unfortunately, I am not making them to sell at this time. I’ve got a tutorial posted here and they are pretty easy to make. Good luck!

Harvest Wreath

We’re having our big Halloween bash in a few weeks but I was feeling a little more Thanksgiving-y this weekend. I’d been flipping through my cache of old Southern Livings and Pottery Barn catalogs and came up with a plan for a fall wreath. I am loving how it turned out! Even better, because the ornaments are unbreakable, it will be a cinch to store!
