We’ll be on Christmas vacation until January 6! We wish you the very best Christmas!

The spirit of the Christmas season is rooted in generosity and kindness. Giving to others, whether they be family, friends or those in need, always brings warmth and joy. Finding the perfect gift that will delight youngsters, parents and the grands is one of our favorite traditions. Giving is really the bright side of Christmas.
But when you are giving to a young sister-in-law, you might have to stoop to the dark side of Christmas: Pinterest stalking.
Daughter keeps every, single card she is given. Birthdays, Anniversaries, Graduation, Miss you, Christmas. Every. Single. Card.
Yet, we struggle on how to display the beautiful Christmas cards that we receive. Most of the time, they are placed on the bar counter or mantel. Not the best solution, as they have a tendency to get disheveled. So what to do?
We went hunting to find the most creative ways to highlight our cards and here are the results.
1. Create a graphic wall art mural.
2. Use a hoop and clothes pins to make a Christmas Card Wreath
3. Line a door frame for a modern look.
4. Hang from garland along a stair way or mantel
5. And perhaps our favorite way, replace your traditional ornaments with only Christmas cards. Daughter’s best friend created this tree last year and it was spectacular!

We hope you sang the post title!
On Sunday, we spent a few hours creating more Christmas crafts and lovely presents. It was a special time to visit with each other and our grandmother, listening to our favorite Christmas CD’s and spending quality time with one another. No rushing through malls or racing to the next event. It’s those special, quiet, calm moments that we’ll remember years from now.
Georgia’s backyard hosts a wonderfully large magnolia tree and so we had to create a truly Southern Christmas craft! We searched through our design magazines and Pinterest to get some ideas. Here are a few design ideas that we adore:
Gorgeous! After searching for inspiration, Georgia decided to step out of the ‘wreath’ box and instead create a Magnolia Tree.
Every year, Daughter and her college friends gather for a holiday party titled the Reindeer Romp. It’s become a much anticipated tradition where the adults can jingle and mingle before the kid-infused holiday. Gifts are not exchanged but rather they delight in the company of each other with good food and drink. The tag ling should read, “Reindeer Romp: Eat, Drink and be Extra Merry.” This year, Daughter wanted to make a small gift for each couple, nothing elaborate or fancy, just a small token of love.
