Technicolor Christmas

I'm really a traditionalist at heart, white lights, real tree, nutcrackers, and red bows (that's what my childhood Christmas was made of). But I'm really loving all of these happy colors for Christmas this year. Actually I noticed that it's whole lot of pink, do you think that could be influenced by the little baby girl I have in my belly??!!??  

I hope you are having a bright and cheery Wednesday. 
Good luck in getting your last min. things done for Christmas.

Hello Doily..........

This week is officially "get the gifts wrapped and get them in the mail" week. So if you haven't wrapped yours yet get to steppin'. This is a really inexpensive way to personalize ordinary paper and add a little decorative flourish without having to worry about gift tags or bows or any of that jazz. Just get a few paper doilies at your supermarket, craft store etc. and some twine or double stick tape and you are good to go with a gift that looks pretty under the tree.

 Have fun wrapping!

So the big news is that Ben and I are having a little girl!! We are so excited that apparently I've been sort of a slacker lately! The little lady is due March 17th. I have been busy dreaming up the nursery. Here is my design plan. Over the Christmas break I am going to try to tackle a few of these projects and I'll post the updates!
