With Love : :

The celebrations have begun, with lots of Christmastime crafting and family gatherings in the days ahead. This year, our home is looking more colorful & festive than ever before!

On Christmas Eve my kids each receive a new nutcracker, we already have quite the collection, I love it!!

I love that Kaiden's getting crafty with his @pinterest finds! He used red felt and the awesome glittery gold @cloud9fabrics washi tape I brought back from Quilt Market to make this stag head silhouette!

My favorite snowglobe!

There isn't much snow on the ground, I'm sad to say, so we've been making our own!

Making wooly snowball garland with i-cord 
& fork pompoms!

Coffee filter snowflakes!

Today, there is still much making and baking being done! I'm excited the kids are all healthy and ready to soak in all the goodness and beauty of this season!

I am really, really hoping to squeeze in just one more quilty project myself. If not the Christmas tree quilt I so wished to find the time to make these past few weeks, then at the very least a mini version turned wall-hanging or pillow!

Quilty Christmas plans

Time to turn this stack into something Christmasy!!

I wish you all a magical holiday!

With love always,  Maureen
