I needed a little down time tonight to clear my mind and relax from the busy week. Naturally I turned to Pinterest! I haven't had much time to decorate my current house this year because I'm so busy with the new house, but I can't wait to implement some of these fun ideas into my decor next year!
I am loving candy canes right now! Such a cheap, simple, fun way to add some whimsy to your house in December. Here are a few ideas on how to incorporate them into your decor...
You all know how much I love a good Christmas card! In years past I've always displayed my cards on/around my pantry door -
or on my wall and in my aqua frame (full post here)...
our Christmas cards from past years on display. Fun to see how our family has grown. I need an updated picture with our latest cards. I also need a two year old who doesn't want to tear stuff like this apart each year. Are you listening Santa? :)
Here are a few other fun ways to display Christmas cards...
When Christmas is over I love creating a simple layout with the pictures of some of our friends. Between the years, everyone we know and love is pictured on a layout in our Christmas album at least once. Here is another fun idea I love if you don't want to cut up your cards...
Simply punch some holes in your cards and add a few binder rings. So easy to make and fun to set out on your coffee table to flip through each year!
I've also found some great snowman inspiration! Check out these cute ideas...
How fun! I want to try them all!
(On our way to lunch!)
Then after we ate, we picked Kole up and went home and put him down for a nap and watched Miracle on 34th Street together under a blanket on the couch. It was the first time the girls have seen it and they colored during the too much talking parts. :) It was a perfect, relaxing afternoon and I loved having a little time alone with my girls. They talk my ear off and keep me pretty entertained. I think we need to make our lunch/afternoon date a tradition.
On our way to lunch we were all three walking holding hands and a sweet lady stopped us and said "oh you make me want to have little girls someday!"
I answered "yeah - it's pretty great."
And it really is. :)
Happy weekend everyone!
