It’s almost here! It’s almost here! We had the best time at family Christmas #1 yesterday. Lots of food and lots of fun. The snowball slingshot launchers were by far the biggest hit with boys 4-7. Thank goodness the snowballs were fabric, as it was 80 degrees here! As you can see, the stockings are hung by the chimney, just waiting for Santa to arrive…


And the table is reset and ready for more Christmas cheer….


And the kitchen is cleared from the beef tenderloin, salad, rolls, carrots, mashed cauliflower, and, of course, chocolate caramel cake. 

Cookie Party Invitations

We are officially ready for the next event. But, even if we weren’t, our friends at Mixbook have our back, with gifts and invitations ready on the double for every event and gift recipient left on your list.

Holiday Party Invitation

If you’re wanting to ring in the New Year right or even gather friends and family for a holiday open house, Mixbook has a bevy of beyond gorgeous invitations to make the season bright!


What will our family be getting in their stockings? Photo books from Mixbook, of course!  This photo of little Will and my dad, his Howdy, just watching the boats go by. It’s such a reminder of how those simple, small moments add up to something really big. 


You know we’re huge fans of gold… and calligraphy… and there were so many chic themes to choose from!


I make these every single year for our families, and, without a doubt, this was the easiest, quickest and most beautiful book I’ve ever made.


All I did was gather my photos, and let Mixbook’s autofill option take over. Usually, this ends up being a nightmare, but, in the interest of research, I decided to try it out. It was wonderful! I switched just a couple of photos that I wanted to be on the largest pages and that was all! The result was fabulous–and took me maybe thirty minutes tops, including the time it took to gather my pictures. Some years, this is a project that takes hours on end.

Art Work to Canvas

Speaking of fabulous gifts, Mixbook’s Art Work to Canvas capabilities top our list of favorite, favorite holiday gifts for grandparents, kids, parents and everyone in between. Have you ever seen anything so adorable?

Metal Art

We’re also loving metal art for offices, kitchens, bathrooms and anywhere that moisture could live or frames are easily broken. 

iPhone Wallpapers

Long story short, Mixbook has everything we need to make the rest of our holiday season merry and bright.

From our home to yours, sweet friends, happy, happy holidays!
