Christmas Joy!

In the spirit of holiday cheer, there are things synonymous with this season.  We all choose to spread a little "Christmas Joy" in our own way.  Since, this is the season of giving.......I wanted to share a few inspired yet, traditionally unique ideas to make the season bright!

Cookies for Santa!

What Santa doesn't like a sweet treat awaiting them when they arrive at the home of a child who still believes, as well as any adult who just needs an excuse to treat themselves!

Chocolate covered Oreo's made by a wonderful Savvy Bride Guru!
The Grinch inspired chocolate chip cookies

Gingerbread House

Now, one day I will make one of these that stays together and is edible.  Gingerbread houses can be as simple or as elaborate as time permit.  However, I find it amazing the effort put in making these homes. Talk about your attention to detail! Can we say "An Architect In The Making."  I would like to see one interior decorated!

Holiday Drinks

Getting in the spirits with spirits! Oh, what fun it is to wrap gifts with a cocktail or two!  Just make sure you put the right name on the gift.  Here are two holiday cocktails to get your Christmas Eve going!

Beautifully Festive: Sparkling Apple Cider, Cranberry Vodka, Frozen Cranberries & Orange Triple Sec

Hot Butter Rum - Recipe:

How do you spend your Christmas Eve?  Do you stay up late wrapping gifts and playing Christmas music? 

However, you do spend it...............Make it festive!

Happy Holidays!

Wow, only 5 more days until Christmas!  I am in the holiday spirit and I hope you are too!  Just in case you're not, here are some cool Christmas decor ideas to get your home ready!  Once, your space is decorated you have no choice but to begin to feel the spirit of Christmas!

 Decorating can be fun and should be fun.  You can add as little or as less as you like.  There is no right way to bring the spirit of Christmas into your home.

Adding homemade touches always make the season brighter!  Bringing the outside in with cones is a wonderful way to spruce up your decor.  Maybe even placing cinnamon sticks around to get your senses going!
No matter how you choose to celebrate the holidays, keep it simple and always do what makes you feel great!  Spread joy and love this holiday season and give with design in mind!
Merry Christmas!

In The Spirit of Christmas

It's that time of year again to bring about good cheer!

Every year I try to add a little something extra of myself with every card. This year, I created flower ornaments that can be hung on your tree or on your clothes! The Christmas season always seem to bring about spontaneous creativity for me. I hope it does the same to for you. Since, my Christmas card list continues to grow each year it can get a little pricey buying personal cards for each indivdual. Therefore, I find the best box card set that's to my liking and add a little extra touch to it, you know.....make it your own! Take a look and Happy Holiday's!
