warmest wishes from me to you

I want to wish all of you the happiest and healthiest of holidays!

Blogging continues to be a daily gift to me, one always brimming with warm thoughts, smiles, GASPs, understanding, friendship and boundless creativity. Thank you so much for your always appreciated visits, sweet comments and inspiring posts.

I saw this adorable idea (and the one below) at Martha Stewart (or Marty Stew, right M?) A must-try! How very Shoemaker and the Elves !

I also want to show you the little tree in our playroom. I am amazed it hasn't been knocked over (yet)!

Okay, well sugar cookies and countless other things await!

Merry Christmas, dear friends!

Merry Christmas to you and yours! What a cute craft -- the birds on the nests are just adorable. I will have to give that one a try at some point. I keep saving and recycling everything and need to get crafting with it all and then gifting it right away so that I can make room for my recycling and more crafting. I did make a little winter scene in a jar using salt and decorations from a Christmas cake a friend brought to us this evening -- inspired by you and a couple of other blogs. Thanks! Holiday blessings, Tammy

Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family too.
I sure do know about boys fighting, ugh. I think they just get so overexcited about the Holidays, and who wants to be scolding during these fun days.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend.

Merry Christmas!!! I love these darling elves- what adorable little shoes and mittens!

I have seen the bird nest picture and I do love this idea! I informed DH to not throw any more toilet paper rolls out from now on!!
