We had a really wonderful holiday this year. After weeks of snow it is now all the consistency of a slushy. We got our last good snowfall Christmas morning, what timing! Here are some of my favorite pictures, and no I didn’t get a polaroid camera, but quite possible something better. I have been eagerly anticipating the windows version of this program to turn your digital photos into ‘polaroids,’ and it is now available. Oh the hours I will now spend playing with this…

Well, we made it downtown yesterday via the max train and were treated to nearly empty stores and Santa all to ourselves. Seriously, we were it. It was almost funny to see how long we could make the poor guy come up with things to talk with the kids about. The snow is expected to keep falling and the kids are loving it. An igloo adorns our front yard and we went sledding down dead mans hill late last night. The snow has slowed our pace and I am looking forward to more slow days and games of gin at night! Happy Holidays!

We have an unusual amount of snow outside keeping us at home. We are venturing out this morning to go downtown to visit Santa (wish us luck!). We spent the better part of the day yesterday sledding and gave me the chance to finish up some holiday decorating. Here are a few peeks around.

our entry way chalkboard adorned with holiday words (inspiration via somewhere, but it is now lost on me, if you know who posted similar, please let me know so I can give credit!)
a bit of an untraditional but no less lovely choice for our centerpiece

The last of my holiday orders went out this morning and I am settling in for the snow and ice (eek!). The kids are out of school probably the whole week, and I am finally sitting down to plan our holiday cards.

I book marked this a bit ago knowing it would be the perfect teacher gift. The kids and I made a couple yesterday and it’s a really fun and easy project. You can find step by step directions at Cheeky Magpie. We used a little green paper leaf instead of the ribbon. Of course in the rush this morning to get off I forgot to take pictures.

We have done a little decorating around here for the holidays, but I am waiting until I finish up all my orders before I really tackle it. My favorite spot so far this year is the mantle. I put these cute little toad stools under glass and wound this really lovely ribbon (from Martha Stewart at Michaels) with some lights.

A quick little post today as I am busy, busy, busy getting all my work done. If you’re waiting on a painting, no fear, I am hoping to get scans out this week of the pieces I am working on.
On a side note, just got these today…
super cute, practical and now I can pretend I am off to go riding when I put them on, ‘sigh’….

I usually try to have all my holiday shopping done by Thanksgiving, after poring over internet sites and searching through local stores to find the perfect presents for the kids. Well, that didn’t happen this year. The kids are older and in Ian’s case he knows exactly what he wants (think star wars) and in Holly’s case has no idea (surprise me! she says). So I did in one day this year what I usually spread over months of planning. Inspired by all those fun gift guides out there I put together some of my favorite finds.
