Reflecting on Christmas


I feel like there are so many little Christmas things that I didn’t get to share on this blog, partly because it is such a busy time of year, but also because they all seemed a little small and insignificant for posting. So before it is altogether TOO late- I am going to reflect over a few little things from this Christmas.

Firstly- my minimal apartment decor- which was simple and fleeting- as I generally go home for the weeks surrounding Christmas- but none-the-less I feel like I did a good job at creatively adding some festivity to the apartment. My favourite decoration had to be the bats- a leftover decoration from Halloween that I decided to Christmas-ify with some little hats and antlers.

Before:

After (aka- instant Christmas)

Then I had my little tinsel tree, that I decorate in full girly style with all my bling:

And then, what had to be the BEST part of all my Christmas holiday: A crafty visit from my best friend Claire! – It was three days of bliss- all day crafting, wine-drinking & delicious food eating in our pjs!
She brought her very impressive collection of card making supplies:

 And showed me how to make the most beautiful and festive cards- I ended up with these five most beautiful cards!

She had so many nice stamps and an amazing organization system they were all sorted in binders with a page of them stamped beside so you could see what they would look like- such a smart crafter!

We also did quite a bit of cooking, making up a batch of my vegetable beef soup & cheddar biscuits. Along with some deluxe hummus/guacamole/chicken/sprout sandwiches with spiced black beans on the side.

 SO GOOD- and I can proudly say that we were very healthy during our 3 day crafting marathon! Especially being so close to Christmas!!

She also got me an amazing book for Christmas:

which I have been pouring over during my free time this holiday!

Also- more about my Christmas at home–> my mom got me some gorgeous estate earrings:

and we put up our crazy- overloaded fake tree!

All the Christmas things!

Hope you all had wonderful Christmases with friends and family- and most importantly stuffed yourself with delicious food!
