It’s cookie time!

Can you believe Christmas is so close now? I love this time of year! I just wanted to do a quick post to share some photos. Every year we like to make Christmas cookies – all different kinds! Last night we made sugar cookies. To be totally honest, Jace and the girls made these cookies. {I made the frosting.} 😉

Have a very Merry Christmas! 😀 read more

Creating The Cosiest of Christmases

During December, chances are you will be spending a lot of time at home. If you’re lucky you’ll be off work for a week or two, you’ll have visits from friends and family and generally be enjoying the festive period at home. So getting it as cosy, warm and inviting as possible is crucial! When the weather outside is frightful (as per the song) here’s how you can make your home cosy for Christmas.

Take A Leaf Out Of Clark Griswold’s Book This Christmas

For many Americans, watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is something of a family tradition. If you’ve never seen it, one of the main plot points is that Clark, the lovable Dad is eager to make Christmas magical by using his bonus to buy a pool. The bonus never arrives of course, and it leads to various comical events, but at one point in the film, you do see this dad’s vision of what a pool could bring to his family home.

In the summer, it seems to be the perfect place for the kids to play and the adults to relax. It’s also a place where the extended family can come together and have fun as a group. It’s a rather enticing image and one that perhaps you have considered before. But could you make it a reality for your family this Christmas? read more

Here are some craft ideas – which if you’re quick – you could have all finished and wrapped for the big day. Never mind hitting the busy shops, get your (Source) needles out and relax. read more

A bit of Holiday Fun: Cookie Houses!

Okay, I say “cookie” houses because none of these were made with gingerbread.

Jace decorated a chocolate one, Jacey, a Hello Kitty…and Jadyn, a Shopkins house. They were so fun {even though they were not gingerbread – gingerbread is MY favorite!} 🙂 read more

Christmas Paper!

Every year I like to choose a theme for my wrapping paper, gift bags, etc. Am I the only one? HA!
Maybe it’s not as much a theme as it is a color scheme. This year I wanted to go for more muted, natural colors with a bit of vintage. I love these colors together. 🙂
