More...More...AND Even MORE!

I LOVE decorating magazines!  I have some as far back as 1980's when I first married.  I still buy them today, but also acquire them from my BFF when she finishes with them.  So I guess it would be true that I'd run out of places to keep them....Well my old ones are still boxed up from my move to Chippy White Cottage, but my newest ones are always close by...Wanna see???

Arrival of the White Stuff


When I put away my Christmas decorations a few weeks ago, I decided to keep some little hints of winter up in the cottage.  I do love SNOW...and had hopes of a snow day or two.

Memory Jar and Journal

I've seen these before, but finally decided that I was going to make a Memory Jar.  But since I love to write, and create journals, I took it a step farther and made a Memory Journal.

Let's take a look...

Ring In The New Year

It's a new beginnings...fresh start...clean slate...
Let's Celebrate!

For the first time, I was going to be alone for New Year's Eve.  Not that we ever did anything terribly exciting, but we always had a nice dinner, watched a movie or played games, watched "the ball" drop, and had a celebratory drink at midnight.  So this year, I decided I would not be alone, and  invited my bestie for a girl's night pajama party.  We watched all the Twilight movies (can you believe I had never seen any of them??) and ate!  I decided that I would make party hats for us ahead of time.  So, into my craft supplies I went...and this is what I came up with...
  They were FUN to make and very easy!  So if you want to make your own for New Year's or's how to do it...
