DIY Advent Calendar

DIY Advent Calendar

Today I have a jump start on the holidays with a DIY Advent Calendar.  If you’re planning on doing one of these, you’ll want to have it ready to go for December 1, so there’s something to enjoy for every day leading up to Christmas.  As one who likes to savor every bit of the holidays, an Advent Calendar is a fun way to draw out the festive feelings and the anticipation of the Christmas celebration.  I’ve been doing an advent calendar for the past couple of years, and always just use activities as opposed to treats so that we can do something together as a family.

Hi peeps!  Are you ready to get this party started?  Cassie (Hi Sugarplum) is hosting today’s party, so if you have a Christmas Craft to share, go HERE to link up!

I’m linking up the advent calendar I created.  I’m especially giddy about it this year because we have a little one (19 months old) to start sharing the season with and creating our own memories and traditions.

I’ve been collecting ideas on Pinterest and thinking of new decor and adventures to create in our home this year.  I’ve always loved the holidays and the advent calendar.  I’m especially giddy about it this year because we have a little one (19 months old) to start sharing the season with and creating our own memories and traditions.

November Rewind

November Rewind

Holy Moly!  How is it the last day of November already?!?! I know my son has been ready for December because that’s when he gets to start his Advent calendar!  We got him a Lego one and this year, and I also created an Advent calendar on the back of our tree!  It’s using the same small muslin bags I had from years ago and now he can look on the back of the tree for the corresponding day and find the bag filled with a small treat or handwritten note or something to do that day!  I’m super excited about this!

Decked + Styled Holiday Tour

Decked + Styled Holiday Tour

Good morning friends!  Today is a special day where I’m joining several of my blog friends for the Decked & Styled Holiday Tour and I’m extending a warm hello and big hug to those of you that are new to my blog, or stopped by from my friend Abby, Just A Girl and Her Blog!

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting everyone in this tour, except for the special one who actually organized it- Bree from ZDesign at Home! I can’t wait to finally meet her in person too, hopefully this summer!  I’m honored to be included with this group and can’t wait to show you a peek inside our holiday home!
