Christmas traditions
The lights have been hung on the eaves with cheer,
                                   take out "Chinese" food has been ordered,
                                                                   Christmas music fills the halls,
                                                                                         the tree is up and decorated,

                                 craft supplies under the tree for upcoming projects,


birds in nests hidden in the boughs,

            hamming up it up for the camera....

                        a boy and his dog, lily! (who forever seems to be in the pictures these days. haha!)

      hand carved stamps inspired by lessons from 2012 Artsy Ornaments Workshop.

Looking forward to the next week of decorating, baking, crafting, and more surprises in store!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!


  1. Your tree is beautiful! Happy Holidays!

    1. Nicole,

      Thank you! And Happy Holidays to you as well!! So how is winter in the interior this year? A friend of ours mentioned it has been the coldest season on record in the past 100 years... brrrrrrr. They are added onto their cabin this summer and hadn't finished insulating. I may miss the interior but I surely don't miss the subzero temps. Take care now!

  2. nice tree! I didn't know people usually name their trees.

  3. Thank you, Yadira! I realized it could be misleading so I added a note. Lily is our dog. She is in the picture with Evan... the large black thing under his hand. I hope you are having a good weekend!
