Basement Decorated for Christmas


First of all, this is not my home's basement, no. I do have a basement in my house but is unfinished, it's the place to store stuff and where my husband has his little "studio". But this post is not about my home, it's about my Sister-in-law's home.

The two pictures below show how her basement looked this past Halloween. She was tired of the same decor the room had sported for more than 12 years.

10 Chalkboard Christmas Ornaments to DIY




Most of the projects for this round up are from our 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments event. If you're still in the midst of your Christmas decorating, you can whip up any of these ornaments in a matter of minutes. If you're done with your decor, well, you can save them for next year because the chalkboard trend is still going strong. ;)

Christmas in the Living Room


I hope you've had a great weekend. This post was supposed to go live last Friday, but while in the midst of decorating, shopping and attending a sick boy since Thursday, I had no time to put it all together.

Even though he was not able to attend school for two days due to a harsh cold, he wanted to help with things around the house. He gave me a good hand with painting and organizing supplies. ;)

NOEL - Alphabet Block Letter Art - Knock Off


I'm still in decorating mode, and the shopping list is still half way through. Yikes! I need to hurry, I know many of you are already done with those two things. I guess it takes a bit longer when trying to stay on a budget or "diy'ing" most of the items you use in your decor.

It would've been easier for me to go and buy the four prints that were my inspiration, right HERE, but the price for each at even a smaller size than what I need would've been $169/each X 4 ---> I don't even want to know!

Christmas in the Bedroom



It's been a while since I did a post about this room, without a doubt this is the room that has taken me forever to complete. It all began with the beams, then the bookcase, some trim, but somehow I haven't finished it. It needs new flooring and that, perhaps, is what has held me down to finish it.

However, for Christmas I tried my best to make it cozy and inviting so, when I found the Tartan wrapping paper over at Target, the idea of lining the center part of the bookcase with the paper appeared.

15 Handmade Rustic Christmas Ornaments


How is your holiday decorating going on?

Mine's OK.

The Christmas tree is up, two mantels done and a few other decorations, but I think I'm still half way through.

The good thing is, if you're still undecided of what your theme is going to be, I have this and some other future posts to help you with that.

Once the 12 Days of Christmas Ornament series was over, I had the opportunity to really go and check all the projects my blogging friends had done and wow, it was impressive. There are so many cute, easy and creative ideas!

I went ahead and sorted the projects by categories, this time you can see most of the RUSTIC ornaments right here in one spot.

Red and White Christmas Mantel


Hi friends,
It's hard to believe December is here, where has this year gone?!
The hardest part of time passing by is when I look at my kids. One day they're little, the next they don't need my help as much and then, they're almost getting out of school and going their own way!

Anyways, that's life. :'(

With the arrival of December, the Christmas season has begun at RLC.
I worked on the Wooden Snowflake Art last week, and during the weekend I got the mantel together. Unlike last year's mantel, this one I wanted it simple and with lots of red. ;)
