One last thing

Before I put away the rest of the Christmas decorations, I just had to show this cute banner my friend Cami gave me. I love it!
The chocolate brown goes well with the Mistletoe Manor quilt on the couch and under the tree.
Her neighbor makes and sells kits for all different kinds of banners. Check it out here. People come up with cute stuff!
I always love the week after Christmas. In recent years - the 'mom years' - in particular because my list is finally finished and I can just enjoy the lights, decorations, music, food, etc. But now I am looking forward to putting away the clutter. (I was so excited to get the gingerbread house off my limited counter space! I let the kids go at it today and gleefully dumped it when they were done.) We have a birthday party to plan next week and after that, I have a list of projects I want to work on! Yay for January.


  1. I checked out the web site and those are very cute banners! I'm always amazed the creative ideas people come up with. How nice to have a friend who makes you such nice things.

  2. I just came across your blog, that is the cutest banner :) Happy New Year from Catherine and the Bumpkin Bears

  3. cute banner, is it made of paper?
