My 12 Days of Christmas Decorations were a lot of fun. And I hope I have inspired and encouraged some of you to try your hand at some homemade decorations yourself. But I wasn’t the only one who was filling her blog with good and useful information.
Let me share some of the highlights (in my personal totally biased opinion) of my fellow 12 Day-ers.
I solely blame Lynn for the extra kilos I am going to gain this holiday season. She kept flooding her blog with amazing, tempting and darn right sinful recipes.
I love to travel. I thought I knew all the tricks. Wrong! the travel tips at Mom’s Travel Tales were so helpful, even if I travel without kids (well actually my Love is a self proclaimed big kid, but I guess that’s different …..). I especially like the tips about who to tip while traveling, and about how to be a good guest, and about how to treat your guests like royalty.
Toni has a wonderful talent for scouring the interwebs for the most adorable projects. The list she compiled of homemade gifts was awesome. I choose the gifts I’d like to receive the most.
Now who is volunteering to make me these……..?
All you mom’s out there who really want to make Christmas a wonderful holiday family time, you have to check out the 12 ideas for Christmas Family Fun over at Life as Mom. My personal favorites (that should be traditions in all families) where: the trimming of the tree, read special books together, have fun with music, and bake cookies.
I can only imagine how difficult it is to keep your kids entertained AND teaching them something at the same time.That’s why I loved this tips from 1+1+1=1. I’d be so doing these projects with them (I might have to ‘steal’ some neighborhood kids):
The holiday season can be such an expensive season. That’s why I liked the series from Rachel so much. Her blog isn’t called “Surviving the Stores” for nothing. I will definitely remember AND USE her tips on frugal gift giving, decorating, travelling, and having lots of fun without spending lots of money.~
I think about food and the holiday season. I don’t always think about healthy food during the holiday season. That’s why I needed the series from Crystal. She showed that healthy, frugal and yummy can go together very well.

And of course there was little old me. Playing againwith paper and fabric, with white paint and sticks, and with doilies and candles. I guess I did what I always do: decorating my house with things I have on hand that generally cost me nothing (well not much anyway) and try to make it look like a million bucks anyway.
