Rewind & Fast Forward 12/1/2012

A big fat welcome to the weekend!  Two things are on my agenda today:  getting a Christmas tree and getting some Christmas shopping done.  I know it is only December 1st….but why do I feel like I am behind the eight ball? 

My fingers are crossed that today goes as planned and I wake up tomorrow feeling like I jumped ahead a week. 

Notice I said “fingers crossed” instead of “holding my breath.”  I’m not that stupid – I know what is on my list!

Let’s look back at what I did accomplish this week:

 

Sunday:

Even if you already have your stockings for Santa to fill, these DIY stockings by Martha Stewart are worth checking out.   There are five to choose from.

Monday:

I love ornaments and those that add fun to your tree are even better.

How about this melted snowman?  My version includes the little top hat, carrot nose and a scarf.    They are adorable and would make great gifts for friends and even a great gift for your child’s teacher.

Tuesday:

This Christmas In-A-Word ornament is one of twelve that I made.  Each is filled with a word that is associated to the holiday.  It was hard to narrow it down to twelve  (one for each ornament ) but I’m happy with what I chose.   Click over to see what made the cut. 

What words would you choose?

Wednesday:

I chose five outside-the-box holiday tid-bits to share with you, including ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas programming guide.

How fun is that?!

Thursday:

Another perfect gift to share  is my Winter Hot Chocolate Mix.  It is a dry mix which means easy packaging! 

I also showed you a new product that made me jump for joy when I spotted it on the grocery store shelves.

What do you think it is?

Friday:

Yesterday’s post was just for fun courtesy of SnowCrystals.com

Have you ever seen what a real snowflake looks like when photographed with a photomicroscope? 

You won’t believe they are real but they are. 

And they are amazing.  All fifteen of them.

Fast Forward:

Think Christmas mantel, a DIY garland, a tip….and more.  Remember – I’ll be here all 7 days. Smile

Have a terrific December welcome!

Be inspired,
