HOLIDAY: TIME WELL SPENT

These past few weeks have been a mixture of crazy, fun, hectic and enjoyable moments. Most of my time was spent making gifts and painting the wrapping.  I also had a few opportunities to participate in a few different ornament exchanges. Which, to say the least, was so fun! Not only do you receive packages throughout the month, you also get to make and send off your own ornaments. I definitely look forward to participating in more ornament exchanges in years to come!
Along with the Christmastime business, I was able to spend time with family and friends. We celebrated Christ's birth, exchanged gifts, had fun playing card games and eating too many sweets. 
All in all this month was great, but I am ready to get back to my normal routine. 

Get the DIY for these woven coasters HERE.
I tried to make lemon thyme soda the other day, it turned out alright, but now my head is spinning with more delicious flavors! 
Me with my nieces and nephew! :] My brother and sister-in-law's cat is so sweet! 

Among many of my gifts were these earrings, this little (might I add, life-saving) heater, and an easel. 

I hope you all had a merry Christmas! Tomorrow I start a short week of work only to be off again for the new year. I will be working on my new blog layout in the meantime! 

Have a wonderful night, friends!
