Life is good...and busy! :)

With Thanksgiving behind's full speed ahead to the holiday season.  We had a great time in Tucson visiting Jenaye, Justin and Jackson.  We ate some yummy food and got to visit a bit which was nice.  Of course we missed Preston and Ashley who were celebrating their Thanksgiving in Denver and my brother and his family who stayed in Mesa.  Jenaye has her place all decorated for Christmas and it looks amaZing.  She has her granny's knack for decorating and entertaining.  Apparently it skips a generation!

My mom is working on setting up her mega Christmas house.  There isn't one room that isn't decorated in her house for Christmas.  And it always is creatively decorated and home-y!  I can't wait to see it all decked out this year.  It takes her over a month to put it all up and probably twice that long to take it down!  Actually, she has it down by the middle or so of January.  That's because she sets things up and then moves them as she creates her vision for the look she wants.  She;s a superstar at incorporating her old decorations  in with her new ones to give it a unique look each season. 

I am ready for my upcoming Do Me A Favor class on Tuesday evening.  Projects are created, kits are put together and the instructions are written!  :)  We will be making four Christmas favors perfect for school teachers, co-workers, neighbors, visiting teachers, the mail carrier, your trash and recycle driver, and your favorite hair stylist.  Whether you fill them with candy, a gift card or a little green...they are sure to be well received.   Here's a peek at two of the four favors.

This little pouch is made from We R's new Christmas line and it holds a crinkle bag and is adorned with a silver and red glittery ribbon, a flower, little silver-y balls and a cute tag.

This little brown sack is embellished with aqua and coral printed paper and tag from October Afternoon, a silver-y aqua ribbon and a simple but sweet bottle brush tree ornament. 

Here's a peek at the little embellishment bags.

I am not sure what is so magical about these bottle brush trees, but there isn't a color a don't like.  I really is somewhat of an addiction...but a happy one!

Looking forward to a week filled with the spirit of the holiday season!
