If you’ve been reading my blog for more than three second, you will know that I love love love Christmas. I adore Christmas. I count down the days of the year until Christmas. And now it FINALLY here!!! EEEEK!
My favorite part of Christmas is thinking of what I want to give who. I have so many amazing, wonderful, amazing, beautiful, inspiring people in my life. (Yes, the amazing had to be in there twice)
By December I have either bought all my presents, or I have everything planned out. This year, I bought my family gifts from Budapest, which you can read about in my 12 Days in Budapest post. I got them the most amazing gifts, and I couldn’t have chosen better.
That being said, I am a horrible horrible gift wrapper. Horrible. I don’t know how to wrap presents. It’s the sad cold truth. Most of the time they end up looking less than beautiful. Maybe less than less than beautiful. Anyways, I came up with this brilliant idea that if I put everything in those treat bags that kids get at birthday parties, tie them with ribbon, and add a pretty gift tag, the receiver won’t care because they received a gift that was perfect for them, and that’s just beautiful.
So I made a six beautiful FREE gift tags that are just simply amazing. All you have to do is copy my screenshot of the gift tags, print them out on cardstock, punch a hole, and tie them on your gift. (Yes, sadly I cannot tie the gift tag to your gift from behind the computer screen. Not that you’d want me to anyways.
Thanks so much for checking out this small and insignificant post, and come back soon for more Christmas posts!
Okay, so lets be honest here. My FAVORITE part of wintertime, is drinking hot chocolate. I love hot chocolate so much. And also hot cocoa. Let’s not forget that they are different things. How? You might ask… well hot chocolate is made with milk, and hot cocoa is made with water. It actually kind of makes sense. Either way my sister Debbie and I made this recipe for the YUMMIEST HOT CHOCOLATE EVER!!!! (Like my use of exclamation points?)
What You Need:
2 Cups of Chocolate Chips
4 Cups of Milk
1 Can of Whipped Cream
Add chocolate chips and milk to a pan over medium heat, stirring constantly.
As soon as all the chocolate has melted, remove from the heat, and pour into mugs, then top off with whipped cream.
Ta da! It was so easy and simple!
Have fun and happy cooking,
Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells!!! In case you haven’t noticed, it is already December 11th, or in other places of the world, December 12th, which for me is really big. I live my year in expectation of the fun, bright, and fantastic Christmas Season.
When my family decorates for Christmas, we all get together, drink eggnog, and listen to Christmas carols while we hang up our favorite homemade ornaments and laugh to (or above) our heart’s desire. There is honestly nothing more beautiful than that.
Finally a logical and good use for popsicle sticks. And they are so cute!
These are absolutely beautiful. A little bit of rustic, a little bit of glam and you can’t go wrong. 😉
Like I said before, a little bit of rustic, a little bit of glam, and you can’t go wrong. This one will make anywhere seem like home.
Okay, so this glorified tree branch reminds me of the story of the Twelve Princesses, where they walk through the silver forest, except in real life. I literally just love the thought of a silvery sparkly branch that I don’t argue with the fact that glitter will get everywhere.
This little guy is so cute, homey, and just lights me up. (That pun was definitely intended)
If all else fails, make a garland. It’s literally so easy, you can find the supplies almost anywhere, and it instantly cheers up any space.
Although one of the more extensive projects on the list, I’m pretty sure all of us can agree that the glitter reindeer head is simply fabulous.
Was anything ever and darling as this? I want one so badly, so if you’re gonna give me a gift. 😉
This is so amazing that at first I thought it was painted metal, but no. It’s a cardboard star!
So cute like a mini forest! Can you say no to these little charmers?
This one officially breaks the “No Snowmen in the House” rule…but it’s worth it, even my mom agrees.
And that officially wraps up my post.
Have a very merry Christmas,
