"You are so creative!" I have heard that phrase constantly since I was little. DIY, Refashioning, Crafting, Sewing, Woodworking. I love it all! Now I have a place to keep my favorite projects or ideas organized and share them with you!

  1. We started doing this about 5 years ago!! But we have a little wooden advent train with drawers and I write little notes for each day. Each family member takes a turn (I usually preplan who;) We then do or say nice things for each other in the run up to Christmas :))

  2. So cute! Miss "hearing" from you every day and hope you are well. I'll keep in better touch after our move next week!
