holiday favorites

Before we jump into the new holiday season I want to take a minute to recap my favorite projects and events from last year…

A sketched holiday celebration, at the beach and Christmas in a bottle.

Hot cocoa ornaments, a thread wrapped countdown, stamped ribbons and a glitter stamped pear.

A chalkboard Christmas tree for the kids to decorate.

A very white Christmas brunch with painted toys, a gift wrapped table and origami twelve days of Christmas notes to give with joy.

PS. Last year’s mantel and sugared cranberries, which are basically the greatest holiday treat, ever!

    I love the sentimentality of the Christmas in a bottle project. Perhaps I could try that with my relatives this year. C:
