The Christmas boxes haves officially scattered themselves all over the house.
Yeah they did it, not me!
I would never go from one box to the next in search of our stockings only to finally find them in the very last box…
and then decide to make new ones anyways – that doesn’t sound like me at all… :)
I had no idea what I was going to do for my Christmas mantel decor this year. I really loved my sign from last year (apparently you all do too since it’s still one of my most popular posts.) but I wanted to go for a little more classic look vs rustic this year.
I was trying to describe to the Mr. the feel I wanted this year – white Christmas, cozy snow ball fight, vintage red, with plenty of jingle bells thrown in…
I think I lost him at snow ball fight, because he got that glazed look in his eyes…
Although he did inform me that if I was going to be decorating our house around a “cozy snow ball fight” I clearly had never been involved in a real snow ball fight.
I hit up Goodwill to pick up a bunch of sweaters (you can see my cute sweater pillow here) and tossed them on the bed next to my Autumn door decor, when inspiration struck! What would happen if I stuck one of the sweater in my embroidery hoop?
Holiday goodness that’s what happened!
Don’t worry – I’ll be sharing the full tutorial on how to make your own fun Christmas Embroidery Hoop art later in the week.
For now I’ll just show you the pretty pictures
complete with ice skates for when the lake freezes over.
And pretty birch branches that have me rethinking my fall back career plans as a lumberjack (don’t ask, just trust me when I say I won’t be swinging an axe again anytime soon).
I think I’ll stick to decorating and wrangling kids…
and planning an epic snow ball fight the likes of which the Mr. has never seen! :)
