By now, I am sure your mailbox is starting to be flooded with Christmas cards from your family and friends. Can I mention the fact that I have not sent mine yet?

Here are some fun ways you can display your Christmas cards you will receive this year.
When it comes to stylish Christmas decor, I always love the classic and elegant look of Scandinavian simplicity.

So, I made these Himmeli trees to be easy, modern, and adaptable to create a variety of tree designs. To pull off the look, you only need to know how to make one simple Himmeli triangle.

One of the things we love to do year after year during the holiday season is wreath-making! It's a relaxing and fun way to get into the festive spirit the whole family can enjoy. This year, we leaned toward our usual Scandinavian-inspired look, but using found and foraged materials. Sometimes, there is so much beauty in our own backyards or neighborhoods, if we just take the time to explore!
Christmas trees are great, but floating, abstract Christmas trees? All kinds of amazing. Round up some unused paint stir sticks, a bit of green craft paint, and some fishing line and you're just a few steps away from some showstopping seasonal art.
I'm hustling to get our home decorated for the holidays and had to pick my jaw up off the floor after I saw these super cute paper houses! And you can make exact replicas at home!
Nothing ushers in the holidays like a healthy dose of Christmas music. We've created three playlists to carry you through the holiday season. We've got plenty of Bing Crosby and Brenda Lee, but we've got some new tunes we hope you'll love too. Think of this as a nostalgic throwback to the 90s. Each playlist is a mix tape from us to you!

This year we came up with a super affordable, easy to assemble, clever tree that only requires a wall, a roll of tape, a stapler, dexterous fingers, and about an hour of your time. Right? Right! Let's make one.
This is my master bedroom the day we moved into my house. I'm sure you're wondering why we changed anything. The matted down shag carpet was a real stunner, and the house also came with a carpet rake. I am serious...it really did. Anyway, this room along with three other bedrooms got a complete overhaul. Today I want to focus in on the fireplace makeover. There were many great elements of this fireplace but so much of what was wrong was proportion.... then of course, everything surrounding it needed to be changed. Here's the transformation.
