This is about the time when those beautifully thought out Holiday cards start popping up in your mailbox. Where do you keep all those sentiments? Up until last year I displayed them around a wrought iron hall mirror we had hanging all year. But this year it is still safely tucked away in a shipping box in the basement. So I was on the search for a new way to display.

I came across this interesting idea on MY POPPET peg-your-cards-here

This cute idea uses those Command Hooks and string. There are full instructions and details on the website!

On to ORNAMENTS!

I saw this idea for an ORNAMENT TIME CAPSULE on Spoonful (again) that would be easy to make and hold a ton of sentimental detail!

I was thinking this would be a great project with the kids to make their own and also a great gift to give to  new parents! Full of ephemera from the baby’s birth year! I am making one this weekend and will update this post soon with my own creations!

So that’s what I’ve got for today. I’m working on my first canvas painting for this winter. Here’s how it’s starting out: I used the papers that I bought the other day. LOOOVE IT!
