In busyness of the season, you may have missed my popular series, Creating Christmas Memories with Vignettes. Each week we were blessed by one of my blogging friends as they shared their Christmas Memories with a special vignette or maybe several.  More than anything, I loved the stories they shared.  Our heart strings seem to be more sensitive this time of year.

Maybe now that everything is decorated, you’ll enjoy their posts in a new and fresh way.  It’s a good time to take a look at your decor and make plans now to create Christmas memories to be treasured with vignettes.

for participating in my first blog hop.  You all are extraordinary.

Dear reader, I hope you all have looked forward to each week’s post as much as I have. When it comes to decorating my home, I love creating vignettes the best, so this series is really special to me.  Maybe to you, too?

It’s Christmas Eve!

For many of you it’s a time of quiet, others a time of last minute cooking and baking, some of you are still trying to find the perfect gift…or any gift, maybe there’s wrapping to do, for others it’s a day of traveling.  I will be looking forward to attending service at my home church tonight.  It’s been quite a few years since I’ve been back “home” at Christmas.  It will be special.

Wishing you and yours the most blessed and JOYous Christmas!
