Fun things are happening this week on the blog, including two blog hops that I’m blessed to participate in.

I’m super excited about this one that is totally about a whimsical way to enjoy a treasured memory that many of us have… bringing home the Christmas tree.

I recently put together a fabulous gift guide for the hostess and entertainer.  It’s filled with thoughtful and practical gifts at various price points.  (I’d love them all!!)  And it’s okay to gift yourself, too! 😉

Did you know you can give the gift of “Prime” from Amazon?  

Seriously… this is an awesome gift
and so much better than a regular gift card or movie passes.
Did you know that “Prime” users get unlimited movies… unlimited music…  
And… unlimited cloud storage for photos…and that’s just for starters!

    These are great projects, Diane. I’m loving all the trees and trees on cars this year. It’s so fun! It would probably be best to get my Christmas tree set up and decorated before making more tabletop trees. Don’t you agree? Today has got to be the day for that! So little time during this season! Thanks for sharing all this wonderful inspiration each year. Blessings~

    • Ummm… I think whatever you’re doing that you are having fun doing… keep doing it. I went to see an old movie this afternoon, The Bishop’s Wife, and they didn’t put up their tree until Christmas Eve. 😉 Of course that might not make your family happy, and it might be problematic when it comes to your Christmas hosting schedule. Heehee.
      You’ll get an email from me soon…. [[hugs]]

  2. All great ideas! I’ve done a few of them myself, and I’m inspired by the others!
