Post Holidays Post

This past Christmas was a whirlwind of fun and visiting friends and family. As hoped, there was lots of kitchen dancing, food, laughs and all around fun times hanging out.

Christmas Eve with the sisters.

2011 is in the works of becoming a great year. We have lots of condo decorating and organizing planned. Pictures are going up, furniture is being purchased, more walls are being painted. Later this week I will share our full list of things to get done!

In the meantime, here are a couple projects I worked on this Christmas that I couldn't share before because they were gifts!

Magnet idea borrowed from the Thrifty Decor Chick

Joy pillow for Mom and Dad

 Last year I wrote 70 blog posts, up from 62 in 2009, so this year I plan to do even better!
I hope you enjoy. Let me know any feedback as things move forward, I love to hear it. Anything you want me to write about more this year, or less?

I hope you are having a smiley 2011 so far!
