25 Days until Christmas…

(And counting down)!!! I did my first chalkboard of the season…I am going to try and capture multiple along the way.  It is my favorite season… Anyway, here is how it turned out.



30 Days Until Christmas!

OMG!!! It is already that time of year again, man does time fly by.  Anyway, the countdown to Christmas has officially started and my to do list to prepare seems to be growing by the minute.  Today I ordered our Christmas cards.  I had my mom take them and then digitally enhanced them with a silver tone, but still some hints of red  showing through using my iPad. I found the card layout and ordered them through Shutterfly.


Next, I needed to find the envelopes.  If you cannot tell by the photos and my recent posts, I am a lover of all things plaid.  So I found these cuties on http://www.zazzle.com .  Plus, who wants boring white envelopes…we need some piz-azz in the holt household.


Hope your holidays are lining up and you are beginning to enjoy the season!

All I want for Christmas…

Chalk Obsession

You may remember my chalkboard DIY ( http://www.houseofholts.wordpress.com/2014/10/29/DIY-chalkboard/ ).  I have since become totally and completely obsessed with drawing, coloring, etc.  as well as stocking other bloggers boards.  It is pretty much  one step shy of creepy!  Anyways, I found the mother load of cool chalk colors this weekend at Michael’s for $6.99 in the kids craft isle, and was able to use a 40% off coupon.  I cannot wait to use that neon pink 🙂


Here is my Thanksgiving chalking!
