Happy New Year!

As soon as we arrived home from Indianapolis, I decided to whip up my 2012 calendar. I was so excited to find these fabulous month tags, complete with dates, from Elle's Studio (no more stamping and writing in the dates!)

I love these little calendars, it's a quick and easy way to capture memories throughout the year. Wishing you all a happy New Year and a blessed 2012. ♥

The halls are decked!

Today's post is for friends and family far away. Since we can't get together in Tennessee for the holidays, I just wanted to share a few pics of our holiday decor. From our house to yours, with love...

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! xoxo

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

With all the hustle and bustle of shopping, wrapping, baking, etc., it's important to remember to capture the quiet little moments that make you smile (and that you want to hold on to forever.) Here are a few of those shots I captured in the last few days...

Trying to squeeze some crafty time in during December is really hard, but I've managed to do a few layouts. The first, is a layout I created using Pink Paislee's Snow Day collection. The pics are from last January but they've been waiting patiently for the perfect paper to come along. I think you'll agree that this is it!
The following are the first couple of pages of my December album. (You may click on image to view it enlarged.)

I'm using Cocoa Daisy's December kit, Teresa Collins Christmas Home, along with other things from my collection.

Tonight is Christmas movie night, along with popcorn cooked on the stovetop with real butter! (My dear husband has this perfected!) Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
