Happy Sunday!! It’s the complete opposite of festive here today because it’s about 5 million degrees outside BUT I am hiding in the shade and browsing Pinterest for Christmas dessert ideas 😁 There is only 184 days to go after all!!!

Save your cardboard toilet roll holders for this inventive advent calendar! Just fill them up with little surprise then and cover over and open on the numbered days! Lovely little surprise to have hanging in the house
Happy Friday!!! We made it to the weekend and it looks like it’s gonna be a scorcher here in Ireland. Just means you’ll find me hiding out in the shade 😁 Keeping it festive with the countdown though and there is only 186 days to go!!!

So this advent calendar/tree is a genius idea! Especially if you’re limited on space. Just wrap some small boxes with small treats inside, stick up on the wall in the shape of a tree and number them! Such a good idea!
Happy hump day!! Even though for me it feels like it should be Friday at least! Super long week. But it isn’t far from half Christmas and the countdown continues to the actual big day and there is only 188 days to go!!!

How cute are these little Santa’s?! Simple to make too. All you need is a small terra-cotta pot, some felt for the hat and pipe cleaners for the little legs and arms and whatever little accessories you want to add to dress them up! They would make festive garden brighter this year
I took full advantage of a day off at home today, and enjoyed it immensely. I made mom a Christmas junk journal for Mother’s Day, and at the time pulled some ephemera aside for myself to work on one since our Christmas season was so busy I didn’t get a chance to do it then, and today I finally sat down, got all my “junk” out and went to work. I enjoyed it SO much! It’s chunky (which I’m totally cool with), full of pictures we took this year, and it’s full of goodies from the #fgchristmasinthesmokies retreat, and lots more! Too, the book I made it from is one of my kids favorites. The Story Behind Santa’s beard. I left the book text all together, so not only is it a memory book, but can still be read too! (And who doesn’t love Santa with cowboy boots for the cover???) I’ll do a Hyperlapse flip through soon if anyone wants to see what’s inside! #christmasinthesmokiesretreat#christmasinjune#christmas#junkjournal#december#decemberdaily#flintgypsybiblejournaling#chrismtas#christmasallyearlong#tistheseason
I love New York anytime of the year but snowy New York just has something extra special about it

Happy pre-Tuesday!! I hope your week is off to a good start! I’m just back from a 3 day weekend so in no form for a work week but we’ll soldier on. Countdown continues and there is only 190 days until Christmas!!!!
This is a beautiful idea for a center piece at Christmas dinner and so simple to do too! Just spray paint or paint some pine cones and fill a little basket up with them! You could even decorate the basket if you had some ribbon around!
