Hello my fellow Emmaline readers! Merry Christmas!
I just wanted to pop in quickly today and wish everyone a happy holiday. Have the best day and hopefully you all get to spend it with those you treasure most. I will be surrounded by my family in the next few days and I could not be happier. To me, the holidays are about that time together, not about how many presents you have under the tree. Most of all, I am looking forward to our big family dinner. This year my two new stepbrothers will be joining us! Our family has grown and that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Nothing beats this time of year!
Today I have included a few pictures that invite you into my world. I finally was able to do a bit of my own decorating, so I adorned our mantle with some wintry décor. Our living room is painted light blue so to coordinate, I used a white, silver, and gold color scheme. I like things to be a bit different so I went easy on the red and green. I styled the mantel with some items we had from previous Christmases and with my own handmade pieces. I made the garlands this morning and put the entire fireplace mantel together in about an hour. So let this inspire you if you are still wanting to do a bit of decorating before Saturday…there is still time!
I am so excited for 2011 and new projects that I have in the works. I am so fortunate to be a part of the Emmaline Bride team and cannot wait to create some great DIYs for you in the months to come. Come back often for some great inspiration and catch me on my blog Lauren Elise Crafted for more craftiness!
Once again, I wish you all the merriest of days!
