Happy December!

Can you believe it is December already?
I'm trying to slow down just a little bit and savor the season. Somehow, every year, things get so busy and it goes by in just a blur.
This year, I decided to journal the season and ordered Stephanie Ackerman's Homegrown Hospitality Christmas book. It came in a kit that I am working on for this month. Cute, right!?! It's a countdown book that forces me to take each day as it comes and notice even the little joys of the season. What a great idea.

Of course, nothing says Christmas Crafts quite like a delicious Bailey's Hot Chocolate with whipped cream. Yum!

Did I mention that I won a beautiful banner created by Elizabeth of Bluebird Papercrafts? This beautiful package arrived at my door yesterday.

This is a peek inside to the wonderful goodies that she sent me!

Look at that adorable puppy! And how about those trees~ so cute!

I'll be taking pictures of the adorable banner later this morning when the lighting is better and I will definitely post about the banner itself. Just too cute for words!
Elizabeth: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I just love everything you sent!
