I've got nothing new planned to post right now but I wanted to check in and say hi! If you follow me on Instagram you might know that my husband and I are in the process of buying a house here in Texas (yay) so the past couple weeks have been filled with house hunting, offers and counter offers, Thanksgiving, stocking making, home inspections, quilt finishing, baby raising, house keeping (minimal house keeping. Minimal.), holiday decorating, Christmas shopping, travel planning... Etc. etc. etc. so little time for blogging. I recently saw a fellow blogger with blogposts and plans scheduled and written out on her to-do list and another with like 10 pre-written posts ready to go for future dates. This is where I would love to be with my blogging. That would just be such a wonderful place. I'm really going to aim for better organization in 2013. Maybe it will start with our new home. We are outgrowing our apartment so maybe our new house will have a nice place for everything. I'm getting the chance to clean out, de-clutter, simplify and start fresh and I'm hoping its the jump start I need to work on my organization and schedule. (Motivation too maybe?) I'm only getting this chance one more time (hopefully) so I don't want to mess it up. It's also the opportunity to pick some fabulous paint colors and new furniture pieces to make our new house cozy and that's really exciting! Any local DFW readers have any fab furniture/decorating places they like to shop? Any non local readers have favorite online decorating sites? Shops? What's your very favorite paint color? Favorite rug? Design blog? Budget friendly design/DIY ideas? Pins? Start throwing out some ideas for me! I'm not wasting this chance to explore my options and really make our future home perfect for our family. I have every intention of sharing our progress in my new organized life ;) here on my blog as well. (Throwing that out there so maybe ill be held accountable... ) Thanks for the help! Here are some recent Instagram images for you because I don't want to leave this post picture-less. xoxo

I'm not sure if you know this, but the holidays are coming. FAST! Thanksgiving is in about 2 weeks and then Christmas is practically like a couple days later. I don't know about you, but I am THRILLED about the thought of getting my decorations out!
So, lets get ready! I am making stockings. Custom stockings actually, any color you want because, lets be serious, all colors are festive when there are twinkle lights involved. (and adding turquoise makes everything awesome, don't you think?) Listings are up in my shop so go get them! And hurry because there's a limited quantity and only like a day until Christmas! ;)
