Hey Everyone,
As you know I've been busy this Christmas season, but I thinks its time that I tell you about the most exciting distraction I have: I am going to be an aunt!

12 Days of Recycled Christmas Ornaments (DIY) #12 ~ Drum

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...
twelve drummers drumming...

Calico Critter Box Room

The holidays are all about tradition.  We start in November and hop from family dinners to Christmas cards to Secret Santa to New Years Eve parties.  Before I know it, I'm stumbling out of bed on January first with mascara smeared under my eyes in my 'fat sweatpants' (because I kind of love Christmas cookies) and I realize that its all over.

Lace Doily Scarf (DIY)

Winter is gorgeous, but not so fun if -like me- you're always cold.  When I meet up with my friends to ice skate or walk around downtown, I'm secretly jealous of their girly dresses and fuzzy fingerless gloves because I'm usually shivering uncontrollably under six layers of long johns with snot frozen to my face.  Picking out a pretty outfit can be disheartening when, to survive, you have to throw on enough layers to look like the Michelin Man.

Matchbox Advent Calendar (DIY)

As a little kid, I lived with my family on an Air Force base in Spain.  My fondest memories include opening the care packages that arrived from relatives in the states.
