Minimalist Nativity

Hi , I love Nativity scenes, and every year try to make a new one, sometimes with weird materials such as...chalkboardtoilet paper rolls, split rocks  and kinder eggs cases :)

This year I hadn't made any until yesterday as I have been , sadly, way too busy and also I had a creativity blank. ( bummer).

But, while shopping my last gifts yesterday,  I saw this "shelf" at a store ( STOKES) , on sale for $6  dollars and when I saw it , I imagined a modern and minimalist Nativity scene.
I had bought these wooden pegs (for a Nativity of course ) at Michael's, some weeks ago,  but that creativity blank I mentioned ( bummer) made them sit in my craft room untouched:(

Now, they sit in my minimalist and simple (oh I love it ) Nativity scene for 2016. 
I will run to Michael's today try find " baby Jesus" wooden little thing and complete it!
**UPDATED..WITH baby Jesus!:)

Merry Christmas!

Woodland Christmas Brunch


Christmas Season IS here and this year is very special as we are having family in town and planned to have Christmas brunch in our house! I love it!
I wanted to keep the same theme I used for our mantle, so I decided to do a rustic woodland tablescape.
Can't wait for the sweet smell of eggnogs, eggs bennedict ( a tradition ) and fresh brewed coffee, and of course happy conversation, wrapping paper everywhere, PJ's and Christmas music in the background!
Invitations and Christmas cards could also add a special touch to the gathering! Cute paper goodies always add  something special, I think :)

 Fun homemade tags :)

Our woodland mantle

This year I decided to go a different direction from years past, and have a woodland mantle.
I like it because it outlasts the Christmas season, and it can be left all Winter.
Gathered stuff from years past, new stuff, made some, and here we have it:

Transforming a dollar store wreath

This one is ano brainer: why pay $$$ for a wreath if you can easily take a dollar store one , some cheap ornaments and revamp it?
All it takes is Ribbon, ornaments and hot glue gun.
