Today I’m inspired by…Christmas tableware. We saw so super cute melamine dishes at Target (I just love their stuff!) and T really wanted to buy the “Carrots for Reindeer” plate (so I did, of course). Here is some holiday dinnerware that’s sure to inspire you!
Today I’m inspired by…holiday decor. We have been busy putting up the tree and now we’re ready to add some special touches to other areas of our home. I hope some of these fun decor ideas will inspire you, too!

Cookie Cutter idea from BHG
Today I’m inspired by…Christmas cards. Our friends begin sending them out the day after Thanksgiving- I’m not that organized.
Here are some cute card ideas from the web. Perhaps you can use them for inspiration for your own cards.
Today I’m inspired by…stockings. At my parent’s house I have a stocking my grandmother made for me for my first Christmas. It is one of my most treasured holiday items. I wanted to create something special for my little one for his Christmas Stocking so I copied the Martha Stewart Keepsake Stockings. We add a new felt shape to represent something that happened in his life. This year it will be a Mickey Mouse shape as we are going to Disney World for the first time. I put the link below and included fun stockings from around the web to inspire you!
Today I’m inspired by…ornaments. What a gorgeous way to decorate a tree! My favorite ornament is a tiny Christmas tree that my aunt bought me for my first Christmas. I still have the felt box it came in and I love taking it out to put near the top of the tree. Our special ornaments get a prime location near the star. With my tree ornament I put my husband’s first Christmas ornament, our son’s ornament and a family one that I had personalized for our first Christmas together. We also put an ornament my mom got us for our wedding that has an Irish Blessing. Here are some ornaments that may inspire you to decorate and create!
Today I’m inspired by…trees. Christmas trees to be more specific. I am going to feature the Twelve Days of Christmas by focusing on twelve aspects of the season to hopefully inspire you, too! Here are some fun trees I found on the web.
Today I’m inspired by…Thanksgiving. I am so thankful that I have a loving and supportive family. Here’s to a happy holiday for you!
Today I’m inspired by…Anthropologie. They just opened a new store near me and I’m SO excited! I usually oogle their eye-candy on their website (they have some fabulous web-designers!) but now I can gawk in their store. Here are some inspiring things I’ve found- look at all the details! Here is their website for more inspiration: Anthropologie

Today I’m inspired by…team jerseys. Have you ever really checked out team colors on football jerseys? Some of them are really cool color combinations. I think I have football on the brain because my husband is quite a fan of the game. I’m excited that our Minnesota Vikings are doing so well and tonight’s game (Colts v. Patriots) should be pretty good! Here are some inspiring team jerseys I found online and the coordinating Bazzill Cardstock (I tried to find one as close as I could!) for each.
