  1. I hope this weekend I’ll be able to take some pictures of how we’ve blended some Christmas and Hanukkah decorations into our home. I’ll be sure to share them in the Flickr pool.

  4. Mod Podge rules! I use it for so many craft projects, but I didn’t know they had a shimmer version…leaving now to go buy some and continue on my holiday crafts…
