Homemade Christmas

I love this time of year; Christmas is special in so many ways and I reveal in the spirit of the holidays. I get a little cuckoo about some things (like rearranging gifts under the tree so they are just so) but like to be simple when it comes to decorations.  I keep my color palette to silver ornaments on the tree with a handful of brights, and then have pretty un-fussy handmade decorations adorning the mantel and (eyesore) wall above the kitchen bar.  It's a small space with lots of heart :)

Cutest Santa calendar found here.  It reads, "Santa's beard is very bare.  On his chin he has no hair.  So each day add a puff of white. When they are all on he'll come that night."

The mantel, my favorite spot.  Adding Brielana's stocking to our family line up was the sweetest moment.  I felt very proud.

 Brian's cousin gave us the Praise sign several years ago and I love it.  It's displayed year- round in various places around the house.

I made this hoop and the angel ornament was a gift from a student (hi, Katie!) circa Christmas 2009.

Kinsey's gingerbread house is too cute not to display, on top of a candle holder, of course.  And was the first craft to be made this Holiday season.

 Twine + yarn + scrapbook paper + snowflake ornaments = my attempt to festive- up the eyesore wall above the kitchen bar.

And last but not least, the Christmas tree!  I have my eyes peeled for a Baby's 1st Christmas 2014 ornament to add to our Family ornament story and a puppy ornament since this is the first Christmas for both.  And probably another string of lights, you can never have too many lights! (And we are lacking lol.)
