Happy New Year!!!

I love New Year’;s its one of my favorite holidays. We don’;t do anything spectacular, we usually celebrate with the kids, but I love the freshness of a new year. ?A new yearpersonalized gifts for him, new perspective, new starts. ?A perfect good excuse to try to be a little bit better than I was before.

My favorite quote about New Year is from Charlie Brown:

“;Yes. You know how I always dread the whole year? Well, this time I’m only going to dread one day at a time.”;

It always makes me giggle.

Before I start with new projects I’;ve got a few more things to share from Christmas.

I decided to totally redo my basement fireplace mantle this year. ?We have a collection of Dept 56 houses and I wanted a more clever way to display them.

My friend Traci made me the amazing wood sign that I new would be prefect with the houses.

I used 3 of my Shaker Village Band Boxes to display the houses. They are some of my favorite treasures. I love that they are handmade here in Kentucky.

I then strung some extra Christmas lights through the display and accented it with a bit of poly fill snow, to hide the cords and stuff.

I found the bottle brush trees at Walmart, they had bright green and white.

I also made new Christmas Stockings for my family this year. They’;ve been in my head for 4 years now and I bought the fabric 3 years ago and cut them out last year. ?Only 4 years to make…; not bad?

10 easy updates for your home that you can dothisweekend!

Melt chocolate. This time, I used some orange melting rounds that I had on hand. You can also use high-quality chocolate although the melting process can be more tricky. For a compromise of practicality and taste, I would use Wilton Premium Candy Melts. And maybe add some ghoulish accents with a paint brush.

This is a great project for using up scraps of interesting papers, fabrics, old beads, buttons, ribbons, and other tidbits. It is simple to do and you can make several of them in a short amount of itme as small gifts or giveaways.
