It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

 While Christmas is one of my favorite holidays, truthfully, I have just been too busy to do it justice this year. While I did manage to get the tree up, the mantle and the staircase completed, I still have much to do, but over the years I have realized that things don't have to be perfect to have a perfect Christmas.

My tree is a hodge podge of several things we have collected  over the years, ornaments my kids have made, those that have been given as gifts, and ones I have collected. We call it our memory tree because we can relate most ornaments to a memory at Christmas.   

 I love a lush mantle and tend to mix artificial garland with fresh greens so that it is both fragrant and full. I also love it to drape all the way to the floor.

With only a few days left to Christmas I'd better get back to business…..
 Hoping you have the best Christmas ever! Life Life beautifully!

Ok, so I know I've been gone awhile, but I am literally knee deep in holiday decorating, add a current project I'm working on and yes , I am guilty of being behind on my blog post. However while perusing the web the other day I came across two things both of which you may have already heard of, but I think is worth mentioning just in case you haven't . One is and the other is .  Here is just a sampling of what you can do. Basically you start off with something like this:

And end up with something like this:

Here's more inspiration.

Here the overlay's have been used on an Ikea Pax closet system. nice.

On the drawer's of a dresser.

I'm thinking why not a wall or even a ceiling! The possibilities are endless! I hope you've been inspired. remember to visit for more info on their product. Happy creating!
