Well hello my friends! How is everyone’s Christmas shopping going? We have it pretty easy because David and I aren’t doing presents this year, instead we are taking a month long trip to Panama and Colombia in February. But since we are spending Christmas in Seattle with my family this year we have the tradition of drawing names and buying for one person and of course my niece and nephew. So, I have been done for awhile and it always feels so good.
We are heading to Lake Chelan tomorrow for a few days to spend time with my family and my extended family which has been a tradition in itself for years now. Then, Sunday we are heading to my brothers to settle in for Christmas. I have to say, I’m pretty excited to see my little nephew, Henry, open his presents. He has quite the obsession with Thomas the Train so I’m thinking he is going to love what we got him!
It’s been quite awhile since I’ve shared a project with you all.I decided to take the month of December off from projects and just really enjoy my time of reflection and the holidays but I needed someplace to hold all our Christmas cards and whipped this guy out using all supplies I already had.
I used an old piece of reclaimed wood I had lying around, some twine, and some wooden clothes pins.
I nailed two small nails on each side of the board and tied two different lengths of twine to each nail. Then as Christmas Cards started coming in I simply placed them on the holder using the clothes pin.
I think it’s a great way to display all the memories from our family and friends!
I hope you all have a beautiful Christmas and I will see you back sometime late next week. I’m not sure I will be logging on much over the next week as I want to be fully present with my family and enjoy every minute of my time. But who knows I’m am somewhat random and you never know!
