I was asked to make some ornaments this year for a friend and his family who experienced a loss this past year. It was slightly nerve wracking, I was constantly asking to make sure that they liked the direction I was going in and I was so relieved when they were happy with the end results! The other side of the ornament has the individuals initials on it. This .svg I purchased from @lillejuniper on @etsy made the job way easier! • • • #ornaments #inmemory #whensomeoneweloveisinheaven #theresalittlebitofheaveninourhome #lillejuniper #etsy #svg #custom #personalized #cricut #cricutmade #officialcricut #cricutmaker #averymerrycricut #averycricutchristmas #deckthehallswithdiy #vinyl #glittervinyl #thecraftygiraffeco #makersgonnamake #makersgonnashare

🤭I can’t believe the 🎄Holiday Season is coming to an end...It went by way to quick! ♥️I’m sad to see all the festive holiday decor go, but 🤗excited about what the 🎉New Year will bring! Lots of fun & new ideas are coming in the new year. 💝Valentines goodies are in the works, but let’s enjoy being in the moment & ringing in the 🥳New Year. . . ▪️This Mickey Gingerbread icon was one of my ♥️favorites this Season! Of course, I had to find the Mickey Gingerbread cookie during my trip to 🏰Disneyland! It was so soft & yummy! Also brought back the cute Mickey Gingerbread plate & cup (not shown) to use for 🎅🏼Santa’s visit! . . ▪️Letterboard (mini rustic gray): @feltcreativehome ▪️Letterboard Icon: @theblessedheart ▪️Mickey Gingerbread Cookie & Plate: @disney @shopdisney . . . . . #mickeychristmas #christmasdecor #christmasdecorations #deckthehallswithdiy #letterboardlove #letterboard #letterboardinspiration #mydisneyhome #mydisneylife #disneyfan #mickey #disneydecor #disneylove #disneyforlife #disneyworld #disneyland #disneylife #disneydecorations #disneyathome #wdw #waltdisneyworld #disneymerch #disneystyle #disneywayoflife #mickeymouse #disneyhome #disneychristmas #mickeycocoa #mickeygingerbread #gingerbreadmickey

Don’t worry, I know it’s not 2018 🤣 These disco ball wine charms are a throw back NYE project that can easily be updated with 2020! Dollar Tree, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels often have these mini ornaments on Christmas clearance. Grab a pack and a few other jewelry making supplies, cut out the year on your @officialcricut and you’ve got a fun New Year’s Eve party detail! 🎉🍾 Link to the full tutorial and supply list in my bio! 🖤 . . . #newyearseve #newyearsevepartyideas #nyepartyideas #champagnebar #diybar #diynewyear #diypartyideas #diywinecharms #partydetails #deckthehallswithdiy #dollartreediy #partyblogger #partycrafts

One of my favorite traditions is after Christmas decor shopping. It’s like a present to myself for the next year—I never remember everything I buy, so it’s like getting a gift and getting new decor all at once every November. I started this morning, and Charlotte and I are going to head out now to hit a few more stores. And then it will be time to come home and put it all away until next year. Or at least start the process of putting it away! #merrychristmas #christmasdecor #deckthehalls #deckthehallswithdiy #farmhousechristmas #farmhousedecor #chippypaint #chippywhite #chippygoodness #primitivedecor #antiquepiesafe #cozychristmas #cozyhomedecor #makehomeyours #makehomematter

And now that Secret Santa is practically officially over, I present to you a bootleg Baby Yoda. Full disclosure: I don’t have Disney+ and I’m 100% just here for cute lil baby things. Pattern is @spinayarncrochet (after completely ignoring the first portion and just crocheting a few circles)

Luke Chapter 2: 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. . Our advent tree is filled! We had THE BEST day celebrating baby Jesus birthday!!!

✨My Christmas Wish for You✨ May we all continue to believe in M A G I C, which is losing all sense of time and space to feel the beauty around you and the presence of God, to feel and know LOVE. It’s noticing and cherishing those precious little moments with our kids and loved ones. It’s seeing ourselves and others for who we were created to be, seeing the soul of another and loving their spirit. It’s your spirit connecting with their spirit. It’s getting completely lost in the moment, losing yourself in something you love. Like a good movie, music, a delicious meal, dancing (like me!), singing at the top of your lungs, a hobby, time with family and friends, being out in nature, a sport. It’s choosing to find magic even in the seemingly mundane - where we could complain but instead choose gratefulness and find a moment to enjoy. May we all begin to see more and more moments of 💫 M A G I C in our everyday lives, not just on the weekends, not just on date nights, not just on Christmas, not just on vacations. But every single day. May we see these moments more than ever in 2020, the year of clear vision. 🌟

Wishing you all a Merry and Bright Holiday. This is my last holiday project of the year. I had a space that needed a holiday sign.

We are headed home from a beautiful Christmas Eve service with family and getting everything ready for the big guys arrival tonight. In our house Santa leaves out all the gifts unwrapped (thank goodness or I'd be up all night wrapping gifts!) but I'm curious how he leaves them at your house? Are Santa gifts wrapped or unwrapped? Either way I hope Santa stops at your place tonight and the holiday season is filled with gifts of love, laughter and lots of extraordinary memories! #christmaseve #santastophere #diychristmasdecor #cricutcreated #cricutwithmichaels #cricutcrafts #craftylife #colorfullycrafted #DeckTheHallsWithDIY #dallasblogger #gigglesgalorecreates #gigglesgalorecrafts #gigglesgalore

🎅 Merry Christmas Eve! 🎅 Here are two of my cuties with my uncle Santa and my aunt Mrs. Claus! In my not-so humble opinion, they are definitely the best ones out there! The boys all figured out it was their uncle this year, but Ella was still lost in the magic. She giggled and giggled in his lap. Do your kids still believe in Santa? Thankfully, only our oldest (he's 10) has figured it out. The others are still enjoying the magic, and I LOVE it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #christmasdecor #christmasdecorations #christmasdecorationideas #christmastreasures #deckthehalls #deckthehallswithdiy #itsfinallychristmas #christmasisnear #christmasiscoming #elfontheshelf #momblogger #mombloggersofig #unitedinmotherhood #momlifestyle #momliferocks #momlifeunfiltered #mombloggers #mombloggerlife #bloggermom #momtruth #honestmotherhood

Deck the Halls with yet more wreaths... I'm not obsessed with Colonial Williamsburg wreaths. Really, I'm not. Ok fine, maybe I'm just a little bit obsessed. Here are a few more excellent ones. I like some of the usual ones. Such as the one in the cabinet makers building with a saw, wood shavings and nails, or the wreath with an Elizabethan collar made of okra around it. Oliver likes the ones with whole pomegranates.

T-2 Days until we let our kiddos DESTROY their gingerbread houses and get the biggest sugar high of the year! After displaying them on the table for a few weeks I re-arranged my bookshelf and put them on display here. This has also kept little hands from picking off candies daily!

Can you believe there are only 3 more days until Santa and his reindeer arrive?!? As a blogger 4th quarter is usually nuts and incredibly busy, which means I am usually stressed out this time of year and things in my personal life get neglected. But this year I said "no" to more work and "YES" to making memories (that I didn't feel obligated to blog about or share) with my family. I have been super intentional with my time and commitments and for the first time in forever I've actually enjoyed every moment of the holiday season! I'm going to be sad to see it end. If you're wondering how it all flew by so quickly there is still time to slow down, bake the cookies, play games by the glow of the Christmas tree and create extraordinary memories with your loved ones! #christmascrafts #christmasdesserts #intentionallyliving #celebratewithintention #christmasbaking #christmasmemories #craftymom #bloggerlife #dallasblogger #diyholiday #DeckTheHallsWithDIY #gigglesgalorecreates #gigglesgalorerecipe #gigglesgalore

Dear Santa Claus, 💜 If I were to write you this letter in summer, I would’ve begged you to fulfill the most precious wish that I was carrying at that time in my soul. If I were to write you this letter in early autumn, I would’ve been more than angry at you, and I would’ve blamed you for letting me down when my last hope was your magical powers of making dreams come true. And now… I’m writing you this letter in winter, because it’s only now that I can trully understand that you deciding what’s best for us was the best choice. 💜 Santa Claus, it was summer and mine and Blahaj’s soul was under the sea level. I have never in my entire life felt so empty inside, so drained of happiness, sadness and any other feelings that a human being could feel. It was late at night and we went out for a sour walk, trying to smile even though everything was hurting. We looked to the sky and we saw a shiny light. It had a certain shape and we both knew it was you, Santa Claus. We jumped with happiness and we told ourselves that you were our only and last hope. In times as dark and evil as those, only something as pure as you could’ve saved us. We closed our eyes, held eachother’s hand and made the same wish. No, you are never allowed to tell anyone the wish you make upon a star or upon magical beings as Santa, but our bond was above words. 💜 Two days had passed since our wish had been made and our wish came true! We couldn’t believe it! We celebrated, everything was perfect. We were thanking you and were unable to believe that the little light shining through the night clouds, that we blindlessly called Santa Claus, fulfilled our impossible wish. 💜 ***CONTINUE READING IN THE NEXT POST*** 💜 . . . . . #letterfromsanta #santaclausletter #calygraphy #letteringlovers #letteringart #calligraphic #calligraphyart #ikea #blahajshark #1700 #1700sfashion #aristocracy #16thcentury #harrypotterart #popartphotography #avantgardeart #christmas🎄 #deckthehalls #deckthehallswithdiy #christmaslights🎄 #christmasfamilyphoto #pinupphotography #nymphette #sweetlolita #grungey #kawaiii #kitschycute #christmasseason

Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes, I appreciate each and every one of you!

At least I have our pretty fireplace decor to cheer me up while I lay on the couch and watch Christmas movies! ... I made that little snow lady a long time ago when my boys were small. She has real branches for arms and a sharpened pencil painted orange for a nose. She’s also sporting a handmade dress, felt jacket, scarf and ear muffs.

Christmas Eve Mules for 2! • Just in case Santa needs any help from mom and dad on Christmas Eve, a little cocktail might be the motivation they need! 🎅🏻 • Another gift idea for a friend or neighbor is to make a holiday cocktail kit they can enjoy. To add another festive touch I added “making spirits bright” cocktail stirring sticks and “holly jolly” paper coasters! • Swipe right for recipe. • Also, I got these little boxes awhile back @target in the front seasonal bins and I’m hoping they will have them again! It includes the paper shreds and I just think anything is cuter wrapped up in a little wooden box! 😉❤️🎁 #makingspiritsbright #christmascocktails #giftideas

Who remembers Shrinky Dinks? As an 80s/90s kid I remember them as the plastic sheets with my favorite characters on them that I could color and shrink in the oven to make little plastic charms. They also sell just the full blank sheets without Ninja Turtles or Garfield so you can design your own creations! That's just what the grandkids did this year at Thanksgiving, making a holiday gift for my parents! Swipe to see these mini ornaments hand drawn by kids ages 4 - 8 then see how they shrunk 1/3 of the size in the toaster oven (aka the most fun part of the process!). Go get your Shrinky Dinks sheets now and save this idea for Mother's Day/Father's Day as a cute way to capture your kid's drawing style in a keepsake! It makes for a fun classroom activity too.

Ho ho ho and a bottle of vino! Cheers to the weekend! 🍷🥂⁣ ⁣ These are one half of the new wine bottle label designs I created this year. I hope to get them live on the blog this weekend. Might be too late for your holiday party hostess gift but just in time for Christmas. 🎄 Join me for #DeckTheHallsWithDIY (see earlier post for details.)⁣ ⁣ This week, and the last three weeks in general, have been bananas 🍌. Does anyone else feel like life is on hyper speed? I LOVE this season, but it can also be really overwhelming, flaring up my anxiety. My day job in particular has been busy but I have the next week and a half off to rest and relax. But first, a six plus hour in the car with kiddos awaits me in the morning. 🚙⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #elvamdesignstudio #freeprintable #christmasprintable #DIYChristmasdecor #christmasgift #wine #hostessgift #holidaydecor #makecreateandecorate #diygifts #christmasgiftideas #tistheseason

This winter poster is the perfect addition to my entryway, and the DIY poster holder is just what I needed. 😍 I love how this space came together, and I can’t wait to add more trees and vintage candles holders to my collection. #deckthehallswithdiy #hobbylobbyfinds #hobbylobbystyle #targetstyle #targetdollarspot #mywholehome #christmasdecor #christmas🎄 #rusticchristmas #opalhousetarget #goodwillfinds
