~ your Christmas story ~

Two dead trees in one year. BEAT THAT ONE. 🙂

And then there was the one about the big mall shopping fiasco. Getting lost in a mall of chaos… good grief….

But did I let it get to me? Far from it. You can read all about my own 2010 story

~ Upcoming  Themes ~

Jan 7 – cool storage solutions!

I have a funny feeling we’re all about to start on a big cleaning frenzy. So why not share some of the creative and pretty storage solutions you come up with?

Be sure to check the themed linkups master list to add your newest creations anytime.

List HERE.

~ SNS blah blah linkup rules ~

1. Please link up your intended post, NOT your blog homepage url. (post, then click the title of your post, then cut and paste that url) If your post has been deleted, please try again.

 2. Please put a link in your post (button or text) that leads back to the party so others can see what’s up! (see BUTTONS label under main blog header)

 3. This party is geared for DIY type projects we can all attempt to make ourselves. Items for sale may be linked up IF your entry is posted on your blog and in tutorial style.

4. For Home Decor and Crafts, Sewing, Cooking, please link projects up that are new to SNS and/or within 1 month old.  This helps keep content fresh!

The 3rd weekly themed link may have older posts and not brand new to SNS and will remain open for your new additions at any time. Click HERE for the main list.

If you can’t decide which category to enter yours in, please just pick ONE and go with it. It’s all good!

Happy New Year, friends!

  1. Hi, Sweet lady..just wanted to wish you the happiest NEW YEAR..I have really enjoyed getting to know you this year. Hoping we can have a lot of fun thru ’11, too.

  2. To have two dead trees in one season is criminal! I mean…you have to de-decorate immediately then. So sad!! I keep my decor for the Christmas season up until beginning of Feb. Then it is all about pink and red and white…Valentine’s Day! Woot!!
    Happy New Year to you and your son!

  3. Stopping by to wish you a very happy new year and to browse throughout the day clicking links and enjoying the creativity and enginuity of all the readers and bloggers.

    A cleaning party sounds perfect for me. I can use some added inspiration. It never ends…

  4. Living our first year in Arizona we discovered that a live tree only lasts for oh…about….4 days!!!! This year we got a fakey fake tree. BUT Alie didn’t get stabbed with a gazillion pine needles while she opened her presents this year. Score one for Mom and Dad! Is a story about our first artificial tree and Christmas story? I also posted my top 10 (I have a top 10…that still makes me giggle) in the crafts and stuff party. I hope that was OK as it’s a ALL OF THE ABOVE kinda post!!!

    Hope you and your family have an awesome News Years Day!!! 🙂

  8. Thanks so much for the feature on my Cafe Wall Art! You were the inspiration behind it! Also, I wanted to share how much your blog inspires me everytime I visit. I am not very good about leaving comments and that is something I’ll be working on in 2011. New Year blessings to you and your son!
