Merry Christmas

 Merry Christmas everyone! It is such a beautiful time of year, but especially meaningful this year as it's Matt and my first Christmas as husband and wife. We plan to celebrate with our families on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, but Christmas morning will be just the two of us opening gifts and spending our first holiday as a married couple. I can't wait!

All the presents have been wrapped, the stockings filled and plans made. Our packages this year were wrapped with simple brown paper and tied with cream silk ribbon or twine.

I also found some of this lovely reindeer ribbon. It adds a bit of whimsy to the simple packages.

I ordered this handmade clay ornament from Jami at Freckled Laundry. I had been looking everywhere for a cute "our first christmas" ornament, and just couldn't find anything that wasn't cheesey or ugly. I love this one, and that it includes our monogram.

I will probably take a bit of a break next week as Matt and I are both off work, but I'll be back soon with some Some big things are happening for me and my business, but it has to stay a secret for now. I can't wait to share with you soon though!!

So from our home to yours, have a Merry, Merry Christmas. May God bless you and your families immensely in 2012.

All my love,

  6. So the packaging!
    I did something similar under our tree!
    Merry Christmas, looking forward to all that you'll be sharing in the new year!

  7. Merry Christmas, and blessings! Love your clay tag ornament, it's so perfectly simple and elegant. I did brown paper and white or red ribbon on my gifts this year. I usually avoid red at Christmas, but this year I needed a little color! Can't wait to hear the big news...
