Are you ready for Christmas? We finished everything yesterday, except for the food preparations that can only be done at the last minute.

Holiday Countdown Planner {Week Seven}

Holiday Countdown Series 2013- weekly plans and free printables to keep you on track.

We had a major snowstorm this week and, although it looks Christmasy outside, I’m not loving all the shoveling I’m having to do!

Burlap Table Favors for Christmas

Welcome to the final installment of this year’s One Item Project Challenge. Kristin, Tiffany, Tara and I have had a lot of fun over the past few weeks getting creative with glass paint and branches. This week I chose ribbon as the craft supply we all had to work with, since it’s relatively inexpensive, very versatile and most […]

Holiday Countdown Planner {Week Five}

Holiday Countdown Series 2013- weekly plans and free printables to keep you on track.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, we only have 5 weekends including this one before Christmas. If you’re someone who’s swamped during the week and Saturdays and Sundays are your days to play catch-up, I suggest making the best of them (with some down time, of course!). Yesterday, my husband sprung it on me […]
