A look at December

It’s December! Already! I’m sure you’ve heard that a lot and I’m sure it’s crossed your mind at least once. It’s true! The last month of 2011 is here. CHRISTMAS will be here in 24 days! 2012 is staring at us.

If you are reading this post in a reader, come check out the new blog layout! I brought the header back. It’s taking some getting used to and, to be totally honest, I am still not 100% sold on it. I may change things up again in January. We’ll see! this is my first day with it, afterall.

Along with the new blog design, there are a few more things in store for December: DIYs, printables, recipes, guest posts, a pattern or two, and more! It’s going to be fun.

Check out the December sponsors! I will formally introduce you to these wonderful ladies soon! Click on their individual buttons below or in the sidebar. They all have wonderful blogs and/or shops!

Old yo-yos & new blog look


First: On Sunday, we had pool time and delicious steaks at my husband’s step-grandma’s house. At one point during the day, Andrew wanted to explore and the first room we walked into had this amazing.beautiful.gorgeous.fkjdkajd;lkjd coverlet on the bed. Hundreds of yo-yos lovingly handmade and pieced together. I was speechless!

oh, yo-yo.

A while later, I mustered up the words to ask about it. It was made by her (my husband’s step-grandmother) great-great grandma. Ah! The history! What an heirloom. It inspired me to maybe (possibly. someday) make my own. Who knows if mine will ever be as beeeautiful as this one, but a girl can hope, right?

Second: I bring you a new blog look! I know folks are more than likely viewing in a reader, so if you feel so inclined, hop on over and let me know what you think! I went header-less, this time. I’m just feeling it out. Thoughts?

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!
