  1. Love your advent calendar…I have one (sort of) like that… mine’s not as cute…but I still like it.
    Hello to Bunco at my house…which means fun with 11 friends for a few hours.
    Hello to a new week and finally a full staff at work!
    Hello to trying to temper my wants with knowing what I really need.
    Have a good week.

  2. Hello Monday!
    Hello to a new colour in my kitchen/family room!
    Hello seeing my house and things in a new fresh way!
    Hello to pulling out my decorations and making my house all sparkly and festive!
    Hope everyone has a great week!

  3. Hello to a Womenade meeting tonight! Hello to slowly getting the house decked-out! Hello to grades being due tomorrow {I confess I will not be ready!}! Hello to my father-in-law taking us out for Chinese tomorrow night! Hello to the annual hot buttered rum party this weekend and a brunch with our family! Love how the fun starts to overshadow the work at this time of the year!

  4. I found a plastic, unbreakable nativity set to put out for little hands to play with. I try to put some things out that are okay to touch since so many things have to be put out of reach. good luck w/ your decorating! I know it’s a challenge!

  5. Hello first fluffy snowfall of the season, hello ginger bean wraps for breakfast, and hello some quiet moments for deep breathing, stillness and renewed enthusiasm for a craft project today!
    Peace and blessings to everyone!

  6. beautiful decorations, lisa! i especially love the advent calendar – it’s inspiring me to take some pictures of my own 🙂

    i didn’t blog about it but today i am saying “hello” to a renewed sense of purpose. we’ve been going through a rough period but God has continued to bless us in the midst of it. we’re learning & growing and even though it’s uncomfortable and we may not like it, we’re so much better for it!

    you truly are an inspiration to me, lisa – as a mom, wife, artist & business owner. just wanted to let you know 🙂
