Candy Canes And Hot Chocolate

I’ve Been On A Christmas Movie Marathon

For me Christmas Eve is my time to celebrate. The tree has been decorated … the stockings have been hung … presents nestled under the tree … A time to make hot chocolate, add a candy cane, sit in front of the fireplace and enjoy …
Why should Santa have all the fun on Christmas Eve? 
Yes, parents need the time to put together some gifts and make sure batteries are in the toys …
But remember … it was Christmas Eve when Scrooge had his visitations from the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future …
So … Celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve … Stay up all night … And sleep all Christmas Day!!

Love At The Christmas Table

This Is An Excellent Christmas Movie I Highly Recommend

I saw this movie a few years ago and loved it!!

With the Christmas season approaching, I was looking for a great movie to watch … but as is usually the case, I couldn’t remember the name …

So … I asked a friend about the movie … but they told me about other ones … With Amazon it is quite easy to look things up … And there it was!! Love At The Christmas Table … This is truly a feel good Christmas movie!!

Love At The Christmas Table Is One Of Those Movies You’ll Want To Watch Every Year … And Share With Family And Friends …

For Sam and Kat it began when they were toddlers sitting at the kid’s table at the annual business party … Their fathers own and operate a business together … But there is so much more … 

I don’t want to give away the whole story … but there is a story within the story … So get your copy of this DVD today and see for yourself!

For Me, Love At The Christmas Table Is One Of Those Movies I Can Watch Over And Over Again

There is a lot of love that goes around at Christmas … Perhaps it is the Christmas Spirit … It truly tugs at the heart … 

I hope you will click the image above and get your copy of this DVD … Pop some pop corn or other snack and enjoy!

It’s Already December, 2019

Of Course I’m Going To Encourage You To Upgrade Your Cell Phone Or Purchase One For A Special Person On Your Christmas List

We just celebrated Thanksgiving and being Thankful for what we have …

Now it’s time to begin thinking about “giving” … 

So … what is it we want to give?

I’m not so sure myself … I think I’ll see what Amazon suggests ….

I Really Like These Gnomes

These little guys can decorate your fireplace … or brighten up any place in your home.

They’re plush … 10.6 inches tall … I believe these little guys will bring some winter cheer into your life this holiday season.

They just make you feel good … I’d get more than one set … I may even give them as gifts …

I don’t want to keep you from your shopping … Just click any of the links to begin your shopping …

Thinking Christmas?

The Neighborhood Is Buzzing With Excitement …

Getting the Christmas lights up and all the associated decorations … I’m not aware that it’s an official neighborhood competition, but it does seem to be with some … 

I’m not part of that group … It’s not that I have anything against Christmas or Christmas lights … It’s just that I don’t necessarily like following what others are doing. When I’m ready and have the notion to do so, I’ll put up my Christmas lights and lawn decorations … Until then I’m not going to be all lit up …

Plus I Did Not Give The Neighbors The Satisfaction Of Taking Pictures And Giving Compliments

Just call me Scrooge … 

Quite a few years ago I wrote a post about making a Christmas tree using books. This was exciting!! You could use old books you had on hand or gather up some from a thrift shop or used book store. Just add lights and you have a very interesting conversation piece …

You could use whatever else you have handy … CDs or DVDs … Perhaps add those with hardcover and paperback books … Perhaps you do jigsaw puzzles and would like to have a stack of those along with other items to make your unique Christmas tree … I’m wondering about using Tarot Decks … That may prove to be interesting.

We have hobbies and collections of things that may lend themselves to a very original display in the shape of a tree … Weave in the Christmas lights and you have a homemade Christmas tree … 

This could be a fun family project … I wonder how favorite toys would work … Or collectables … You tree could have a very unique shape … This may make it more unique and an expression of your family … Make it yours …

It’s Always Fun To See An Idea — A Christmas Tree Made Out Of Books And Create One Of Your Own To Express Your Interests Or Those Of Your Family

Include them in your project and it will bring more meaning to the holiday season …

I love tradition, but I’m all into creativity and imagination. 

I was thinking about food containers, too — different boxes of favorite foods … tins, too … My goodness, you could use just about everything … On your next shopping trip for groceries, you may just be thinking about this post and the book tree …

Christmas Eve Eve

Oh yes, it has finally arrived!!!

Many are traveling, many are anxiously awaiting family and friends . . . Oh yes, there will be the last minute shoppers . . . and those getting their groceries . . . and there may be a bit more tidying about the house . . . 

I’ll be doing laundry . . . Want my dining table tablecloth to be fresh and may need to iron it, too . . . along with my place settings and napkins. And, of course there are the gift box place settings . . .

It has been quite busy.

Today I want to post on my other four websites . . . plus I want to do some papercrafts just for fun . . . and organizing my craft room just a bit.

Having an inviting place to sit and reflect is what I enjoy.

A nice cup of hot chocolate in your favorite chair in front of the fireplace is ideal.

There are plenty of memories made in this room . . . and there are many more to come.

For me it isn’t about getting everything perfect . . . which is pretty much impossible, by the way . . . it is about being comfortable and enjoying Christmas. I do like the old family traditions . . . and the new ones created through the years.

I’m into comfort . . . not stress . . . not anxiety . . . For me it is more of what is, is . . . if others wanted or expected something more . . . well, that is not my problem . . .

I’ve watched many Christmas movies over the years . . . and there is always chaos . . .

It is best to just relax and enjoy.

Have a Merry Christmas with your family and friends . . . and if you happen to be alone this Christmas . . . enjoy it . . . cater to what you enjoy . . . be happy and blessed . . . This is a time of celebration which can be shared or enjoyed alone . . . Just do what makes you happy and joyous.

Too often we get caught up in the Hallmark picture perfect world . . . that is a beautiful Christmas card . . . but we are in the real world . . . and we can fill our thoughts and hearts with our own “perfect” Christmas experiences . . . there are several precious moments you can recall and enjoy . . .

Enjoy your Christmas Eve Eve.
