When I thought about how I wanted Christmas to feel this year, I was taken back to the thought of a simple, handmade Christmas. I was inspired by nature and years in the past when families would have had very little to decorate with. I also didn’t have a large budget and wanted to use some of the things that I already had.

Our dining room is very small and I chose to put a small Christmas tree in an old crock and then hang our handmade clay star ornaments on the tree. The clay stars on the grapevine wreath were also made by the children and I. The Christmas tree didn’t come with the tiny pinecones on it but with just a dab of hot glue, I was able add them for a little extra festive touch.

I kept it simple in the kitchen with inspiration still coming from nature and the feel of an old fashioned handmade Christmas. Real greenery, nuts in a bowl, spices that we use to make our winter stove top simmer and dried cranberries. The lights give such a cozy feel in the early mornings and evenings.

Just a few simple touches in our kitchen this Christmas season but it’;s never really about having a perfectly put together space for me. It’;s about the memories that are created here. It’;s about Christmas music playing, children helping bake and the memories that are created together.

Thanks for stopping by and don’;t forget to visit the others on the tour! Merry Christmas!

Oh, that table! Where did you purchase it from?!! ??

Rocky Hedge Farm is a simple living blog sharing the journey of a family living in small town USA. A hang laundry on the line, cook from scratch kind of girl, living in a manufactured home that is being remodeled, Sarah writes about balancing life as a mother, wife, homemaker, and farm girl.

Located in rural Missouri, Sarah keeps the company of her husband, and four children. The days are filled with time spent in the garden, keeping house, working on DIY projects, checking on the bees and chickens, and spending time with her husband and their children.

Mixed media can be?vibrant and colorful and these days it seems as if there are no limits to what designers are doing with color and materials, with the color palettes they are creating and?exploring way outside of the?traditional crafting boundaries. ? Black and white photos, black and white?imagery and black?and white crafting is truly spectacular. ?Black and white really?means shades of black and white so the texture, the shadows, the details are simply?amazing together. ?

Holton Rower is an artist so inventive that Improvised Life could be devoted soley to his work and improvisations. He designed a wonderful bit of brilliance in his home recently: an iron-clad magnetic wall painted to look like the adjacent walls. It allows Holton and his family to easily display and remove artwork, photographs, notes —anything that can be held up with magnets — as they wish. Perfect in house that serves as an ever-changing gallery of art — the entire family are artists — and interesting things to look at. It would be a wonderful idea to apply to just about any space. Because the steel is painted, it looks like a regular wall and won’t rust, so could be used in a kitchen.

Happy Hump Day, my DIY friends!? Well this week is certainly on the up for us here at Cutting Edge Stencils.
