Decking the Halls

We have been so busy the last couple weeks since Thanksgiving! Last weekend we spent the whole weekend putting up Christmas decorations and getting ready for Christmas! It's been exhausting but very fun! I LOVE Christmastime and enjoying decking the halls! Finally, last night I finished decorating the Christmas tree! I still have a few more bows to put up outside then I will be done!

Now for my current project I'm working on...I'm making stockings for Matt and I. My Mom did this for both my brother and I when we were very little and I always loved my "mom-made" orginal stocking! I saw these kits at Hobby Lobby and thought "I can do that, what a fun project". So I picked out 2 stockings, got home and began sewing! Yeah, I don't really sew but I'm learning to by hand! haha I started with my stocking as you can see below b/c it looked like an easier pattern! I have really enjoyed making them and look forward to doing more when we have kids! I have done alot more on this stocking since this pic last week so I will post more soon! Hopefully I will get both stockings done before December 25 when Santa comes! Sewing my first stocking!
Here is my newest floral arrangement I got while at
Hobby Lobby that I just love! It's small grapes
on a vine with greenery! It ties in with my
kitchen theme so well!
