I hope 2013 is treating all of you very well. I just wanted to drop in and share some tidbits from my holiday. First, I did a twist on this year's tree in honor of our movie sofa.
This year I went quite simple with the tree and only used the blue ornaments from our collection. I was also inspired by the feather ornaments I saw at West elm that happened to retail for $9 each! If you know me, then you know that I'm a frugal gal! I opted to make not one, but TWELVE similar ornaments of my own for only a dollar each by purchasing clear glass ornaments and filling them with white feathers from Michael's. To add some sparkle, I added some leftover chandelier crystals that I was given during my internship.
Oh, I also got quite creative with gift wrapping this year - i.e. I got lazy on Christmas Eve and decided to use my fabric samples in combination with a piece of ribbon. Honestly, it was the easiest gift wrapping technique I've ever used, and I can't believe that it didn't occur to me earlier - so chic and simple. I wish I had taken more pictures, but here's a picture of Brandon loving up on his gift to give you a good idea.
And I don't know about you, but New Years really sneaked up on me! We had a small gathering of friends and Brandon made the best punch ever! It was truly divine. If you're interested in "Shark Bowl Punch" with a surprise at the bottom (gummy sharks) here's the recipe.
All in all, it's been a wonderful 2012, and I am so thankful for the blessings that God has given us. It was exactly one year ago today that I started my current position as an interior design co-worker. Isn't God great? I'm so excited to make the most of 2013, and I can't wait for what's to come! Stay tuned!
