A few of my favorite photo cards...

So this year, I ventured into the photo card world and created a couple of cute (if I have to say so myself) cards for a couple of friends. Check them out! That precious little girl is the daughter of my friend Sarah Buck. Check out her fabulous work at . The took our photo this year as you saw before! Love her to pieces! Her blog is super fun, too! The other friends are my newlyweds, Scotti and Matthew & Brooke and Andy!

Label It!

So of course, no one in my life is surprise by this, but I always do personalized holiday labels for our packages. This year, I chose to do a "winter berry" effect and created our last initial. It turned out really cute on our wrapping paper that I found at Target this year. A mix between different polka dots, bold stripes and grosgrain ribbon, this might have been my favorite year for fabulous wrap!

Ho Ho Ho!

Christmastime is my favorite time of the year! Since I work in retail, Christmas doesn't really seem to end since we begin working on next Christmas after this Christmas is over! But, I DO enjoy when the actual season gets here because you get to enjoy what the season is really about - family, friends, spending time together, baking treats for the people in your life, helping the less fortunate and of course, that little baby Jesus! We have a few collections going on in our house that you see 1) our Nutcracker collection or what we like to call "Our Army!" 2) Patrick's Dicken's Village that his mom started when he was young, 3) the many entertaining pieces that I've collected over the years and 4) our little Irish Angels. Enjoy!

It's finally starting to look a lot like Christmas!

So we finally got around to doing our Christmas card which I will be scurrying around to get in the mail Monday morning! My dear friend, Sarah Buck, took our quickie pic in her back yard and it turned out fabulous! I designed it of course based on my hubby's shirt.
