After-Christmas Decorations

Who likes what their house looks like after they take all the Christmas decorations down? 
No one. 
(Okay, except maybe my one friend who considers her Christmas decorations "clutter" and takes them down as soon as possible.)
But not me! I'm determined to work on some decorations that I love to have up for the month of January! So look for something soon...I'm working on it, and here are some of the elements below.

Gift Card Packaging

Looking for a cute, inexpensive, and easy way to wrap up some Christmas gift cards? I took each gift card, placed it in a clear plastic treat bag, added some Hershey's Kisses, and sealed them up with some ribbon and a jingle bell!

Happy Holidays!

Craft Show Fun

Today my sister and I setup for a show at a local retirement village. It was the first year they offered the "marketplace" to their residences, so traffic was pretty slow. It was still fun to hang out with my sister for the day and meet some new people!

A Little Mantel Love

Today I went over to my sister's house for lunch and ended up helping her decorate her mantel for Christmas. I do have a little mantel-envy due to my lack of mantel (I know, I whine about that a lot...I'm sorry).

All of the glassware she had somewhere around the house, and we filled them with ornaments and some silver and white filler from Michael's. The cute little "let it snow" sign in the middle was in the $1 bin! Her super cute skate stockings were a gift from her sister-in-law from Canada. 

The best news about this mantel? All she has to do is take down the stockings, and it can stick around until Valentine's Day!
