This is going to be quick. I need to kick myself off of pinterest for the day.
( I truly haven't been on it for awhile so it would be easy to loose an hour staring at my computer screen)
So... I am going to share a few things with you and then move on to my other list of chores. Organizing my desk, finishing unpacking, etc.
Something I could make...
Something to eat...
Something to laugh about...
Red with white bows. Silver and gold accents. Striped gift bags and polka dot wrapping paper...
The only thing more fun than giving or getting a present is giving or getting a pretty present!
Do you have a Christmas wrapping "theme" this year? Snail Mail Designs would love to see and hear about
it. Please post your photos and/or descriptions on our facebook page to be entered into a contest to win a
set of 10 Triangle Tree Gift Tags to tuck away for next year's wrapping supply!
Please make your submissions by Christmas (or earlier for those of you who are allowed to open before Christmas morning)!
Thanks for stopping by! Now I need to get back to wrapping a few last presents myself...
I couldn't wait to hang one of them on my desk area. Suddenly my to-do list seemed a little easier to tackle ;)
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you are having a wonderful beginning of the week!
Last weekend at my parents' cabin we finally took some pictures for our Christmas card. We had to do it in the morning before we left on Sunday, so the sun was quite blinding with all the snow on the lake. The wonderful part was that it was so warm out that standing without proper coats was no big deal. I can handle with 40 degree winter weather. My mom took all the photos for us. Thanks mom for putting up with my awkwardness of being on the other side of the camera for once and Ben's inability to keep his eyes from squinting. Here is a good selection of the photographs below, but the photo we chose for our cards is not included. You'll have to wait for that ;)
So this morning I got a call for a substitute job and I thought I accepted it but it turns out someone else must have have snatched it up before me. (It is a automated system)...
So here I was fully dressed and ready for my day at 7am with nothing to do. I decided how to fill my time rather quickly. I brewed myself a fresh cup of coffee and curled beneath a handmade throw on the couch. I also decided to turn our Christmas tree lights on because there are very few quiet mornings where I get to simple enjoy the lights (& my coffee) rather than rushing around to get ready for work.
I hope you were able to enjoy your coffee this morning too...

This past weekend I was in the cities to help throw a bridal shower for my friend Justine. It was a brunch shower so we did most of the decorating and cooking/baking the night before. I managed to take a few photos of the day, but there were many details that I didn't get a chance to catch.
Details of the day:
Make your own paper bag and book page flowers.
Mini German Pancake Recipe with Triple Berry Sauce
Chocolate Truffles (I added peppermint to the recipe)
Homemade Coffee Creamers (we made the peppermint mocha & the pumpkin spice)
It was a wonderful morning filled with wonderful people and delicious food.
