Christmas is Coming

Merry & Bright

Can’t believe it’s only less than a week away from Christmas!  Are you finished with Christmas shopping for everyone on your list yet?

Ever since my first kid was born, I’ve been hand-making Christmas ornaments every year.  One year I made tiny ornaments with felt, glass beads and sequins.  They are so cute and very easy to make.  I actually sew a few of them by hand while sitting in the car on our way to Tahoe!

Now I just need to secretly wrap up the gifts after the kids are asleep and put them under the tree, plus spending a lot of family time together.  Do you have any family Christmas traditions?  I would love to know how you are spending your Christmas!
