Advent day 25

Merry Christmas! May you all be blessed today on this beautiful Christmas Day ❤️

I have created a coloring page for all ages from today’s advent painting of baby Jesus and would love to share it with you ❤️

You can also find a PDF available for download on my home page.  I have truly enjoyed these 25 days of posting daily advent and I hope you have enjoyed them too ❤️


Advent day 24

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there……only I hung the stockings up there on a old fence picket that I threw together with some nails for hangers and since we don’t have a chimney I stuck them all above the shoe shelf by the front door and even though none of our stockings match they all have there own memories and we love seeing them year after year. Here’s to wishing you a merry Christmas Eve filled with love and tradition

Soon we will be ringing in the new year and I have created a 2021 inspirational watercolor calendar and I will be sharing weekly inspiration throughout 2021.

Advent day 22

Advent day 22. For today’s advent fun I took my kids old sled that is battered and worn and decorated it for Christmas. I used some branches I set aside while Christmas tree cutting added some ribbon, rope, and old bells and I think it turned out great! 🧶🛷❤️ ‏
