Rewind & Fast Forward 12/8/2012

Good morning!

We are just going to get down to business today. We all have a lot to do. 

Decorating.  Shopping.  Baking.  Parties.

It is all happening!

So let’s do a quick review of what happened at Turnstyle Vogue this past week!

SUNDAY:

I welcomed the new month with a December poem by Helen Moore. Every year at just this time, in cold and dark December…

The first thing I did when decorating my home is my mantel.  Here is a peek at it in case in you missed it. I made it all about one word:  BELIEVE

Can you see what color scheme I chose for my great room this year?

 

TUESDAY:

If you use lights in your home as part of your Christmas décor, then I have a tip for you to make those lights illuminate to their fullest potential.

You spend a lot of time decorating so don’t forget the details to make it all shine!

WEDNESDAY:

My DIY chain link garland was super easy and adds a punch to a tree.  You can make it rustic and natural, or paint it any color you choose.

THURSDAY:

I bragged about having a daughterwho will come home and make these Christmas cupcakes “just because.” 

She has asked that I leave her my Kitchen-Aid in my will.    Nice.

Gotta love her.

I also brought out my cinnamon ornament recipe again.  I have been making these for 25 years and I never get tired of them.

The kids loved to make them when they were little.  Messy hands…but big smiles.

FRIDAY:

We all know how presentation is everything, so don’t forget to “wrap” those gift cards.  Here is a quick tutorial on how to create these super simple gift card holders

Nothing fancy, almost disposable.

But cute nonetheless – and another project for the kids!

Starting tomorrow, we are talking tree, buttons,  starlight, a little caprese and a copycat

Hmmm…
