Happy Holidays!

I'm getting a jump on the new year resolutions and starting this new blog. I've actually been blogging since 2005 and have taken my blog in different directions over the years. I was a long time typepad user but have recently realized that some widgets, posting issues and comment options have led me back to the simple/faithful blogger. Also, who can beat FREE?!?! lol

This blog is going to be a mix of my family time, my creative happenings, business ventures, online selling (i {heart} Etsy and use eBay from time to time). I've tried seperating all these venues in the past and it's left me with several blogs that I neglected. Time for a change....looking forward to 2011! Are you with me? :)

Happy Holidays!

Just a couple weeks until Christmas!  Are you ready???  I'm still searching for a few gifts but other than that...bring it on. :)

I was running behind with my holiday decor this year and decorating.  Similar to last year, our 8ft tree is adorned with black, silver and red.  I'm a fan of regal decor but it's soooo not me so this is my version for 'where I come from'. lol

(yes, we have been putting off getting the crown molding up for some time now...priorities...i tell ya. lol)

Family 026.3.5 
(few of the ornaments close up.  I enjoy adding to them after each Christmas when they go on sale. :) )

Family 001.3.5 
(this is OUR mantel.  we do not have a fireplace so this mantel piece I aquired at a yard sale has held our stockings)

Family 027.3.5 
(love this skinny tree that someone left out at the curb last year.  It told me to bring it home. ;) )

Family 035.3.5
