Family thankful tree, Successful Homemakers contributing article

How to Make a Family Thankful Tree from Successful Homemakers

On this fine Thanksgiving eve (or day, depending on when you are reading this) I am sharing a wonderful project for the whole family over at Successful Homemakers. This is one project the whole family can get in on. My kids enjoyed it so much, and I enjoyed getting a little more insight into their minds and what they were thankful for. Head on over to see the tutorial and some of my kids wonderful reasons they are thankful. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and give thanks to who and what you have in your life!

Only the best here at Our house now a home!

I thought the day before Thanksgiving would be a good to time officially kick off Christmas decorating. I was teasing about it earlier, but it is official kick off time! I am in planning mode, so anything around the house is fair game with inspiration. I have some round, shiny, ornaments. And some green ribbon. I decided to become crafty and put it together.

A busy weekend

We were busy this weekend
This weekend I was one busy bee. The fall home decor is down and 98% of my Christmas stuff is up. I have ready and waiting projects like crazy to share with you all. The inside is all done. It has been horrible cold and wet weather here. So the front porch is going to have to wait. At least until it stops raining. We are used to cold here with putting up lights, just not rain too.  I have decided this following weekend we are going to get our Christmas tree. I am hoping if we don't wait any longer it will not be miserably cold when looking for our tree, like last year.

"It's a small world", 86 square foot apartment


Ever feel like the walls are closing in on you? I know with the already cold and snowy weather by the time February gets here I am going to be one stir crazy person. And I have 2,000 square feet and a full basement to roam around. I would never describe my home as large, or small. It just is. But, compare it to this Paris apartment and I am rocking a mansion the size of the infamous Aaron Spelling mansion.

Friday Favorites #88


Friday Favorites time!  I like this link party, because it makes me realize the weekend is fast approaching. And here in this neck of the woods winter is fast approaching. In southern Wisconsin we are experiencing snow flurries and highs in the 20's. Yeah, seriously. We skipped fall and went straight to hard core winter. I am not prepared. What I am prepared for is to see the awesome that is the links people share here. I always enjoy seeing what people are up to, get some ideas, and become awed by people's talents. Bring it on!
