Nov. 21: gratitude day 21......grateful today for traditions! I LOVE traditions, and yet when I first got married I would get upset if things didn’t go as my “plan for the tradition!” I had to learn that traditions can, and sometimes need, to be adapted depending on the time of life we are in! We used to set up the tree as a family- and I wanted EVERYONE to participate- but the last few years it has changed to me and the kids due to timing and work and travel etc- and that is just fine! Chip and Cash went off to football tonight, and since we won’t have time next week to do it, it was best if we just went ahead- so Ivy and Griff and I blasted the Christmas tunes, put on some Christmas jammies (they get their new ones on Dec. 1st), had some hot chocolate, laughed a ton, and made some memories doing our tradition of setting up the tree early! I love traditions because of the memories they create! I want the kids to remember the holidays as a time of traditions and magic from the spirit of Christmas! I hope they will think of them as fondly as me! #attitudeofgratitude#christmasspirit#traditions#lovethem
Швидкими чи повільними темпами ми напрявляємось в сторону Різдвяних Свят і Нового Року.Чула від багатьох знайомих ,що багато хто любить собі давати якісь обіцянки,наприклад,з початком Нового Року не буду більше робити того і того,чи навпаки буду більше зосереджуватись на тому і тому.Зазвичай багато хто бажає схуднути😂,ходити частіше в зал,почати читати більше книг,більше часу присвячувати собі чи сім’ї .Але як би банально це не звучало,для різного роду таких бажань,ми не мусимо чекати до Нового Року,почати втілювати свої мрії можна кожен день,кожної хвилини.Найважче це розпочати зміни над собою,але погодьтесь для цього не потрібно чекати 1 Січня.Хоча багато хто каже,що власне з таких новорічних обіцянок і почався шлях до змін.А ви як,даєте собі такі обіцянки новорічні?
So with Christmas fast approaching I figured I would put together this list of stocking stuffer ideas. It isn't just one for men. I am calling it an ultimate Christmas list because it will be for men, women, and kids!
I got a great new book on mixed media (watercolor, collage, and ink) by @geninne, and also just finished watching a great @skillshare class on expanding my art style by @terryrunyan. So when I was thinking about what I could do to really use my new found skills, my mind immediately went to the old vintage decoupage ornaments that my mom and grandmother used to put on their trees. The sheet music is of Christmas Carols from the public domain, and the pine branches, ornament shapes, and inlay designs are hand drawn by me. I am super happy with how this came out and can't wait to keep trying my hand at digital mixed media art. I already have plans to come out with a set of Christmas cards for sale next year! Merry (almost) Christmas everybody!

✨This candle is a pure, elegant, cozy & sparkling version of Christmas all bottled up beautifully into an all natural candle. The scent is only half of what makes this candle a must for the holidays. Freshly harvested cedar & fir needle to give that cozy warm undertone, spicy cinnamon & clove to awaken your holiday spirit, and sprinkled ever so elegantly with sparkling orange and lemon.
