Everything You Need for a Handmade Christmas

The Christmas season is quickly approaching. For those of us who long for a holiday filled with homemade decorations and handmade gifts, it’s time to get crafting! I was one of those kids who started listening to Christmas music in July and had my Christmas cards finished before the first snowflake fell. Years later I…

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from my house to yours!  I hope you all have a joy-filled holiday! This was the view from our deck on Wednesday.  Unfortunately the rains came today and there is very little snow left.  I am still dreaming of a white Christmas…how about you? Enjoy this beautiful time of year! For to us…

Happy Easter

He has risen!  He has risen indeed! Although the snow (yes, snow!) may fall outside, inside we rejoice because He lives! I am sure the snow won’t last long, but it is a strange sight to see on an April Easter morning.  Especially when it felt like summer only a few short weeks ago. I…

Make Your Own Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Make Your Own Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Last year I shared with you how my mother-in-law taught me how to make an evergreen wreath.  This year we gathered with the whole family (my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, too!) to make them again.  We started our outing at our land to gather the evergreen boughs, and after a long (and somewhat wet!) hike we…

Christmas is for Giving: Spreading the Joy with Extended Family

Today is the first Sunday of Advent.  The candle has been lit, the streets are white with snow, and the sound of Joy to the World still echoes in my ears from this morning’s church service.  The Christmas season has begun. Hubby and I have been busy making Christmas lists, planning celebrations, and I have…
