Cozy Bedrooms

This morning I will be taking my last final of the semester – Thank. Goodness.  (Keeping up with class assignments and studying for exams is a lot harder than I remember!)

I am 100% looking forward to not setting an alarm this weekend for the first time in a while.  All I want to do is cozy up between the sheets and sleep away the morning (catching up on the many hours I lost throughout the semester …)

Here are a few snuggly bedrooms I wouldn’t mind catching some Zs in (click image for source) …

Festive: The Story Behind the Ornament

Freshman year of college, I decided to decorate my little dorm room with Christmas lights for the holiday season.  Jim proceeded to come in, grab a sticky note and write “festive” on it with a couple of arrows.  He taped this note to my wall with the arrows pointing appropriately at the lights.

Jim and I had only started seeing one another a month earlier.

Six years later, we still have the sticky note.

We’ve taped a loop of ribbon to it and now it hangs from our tree each Christmas.

This note was the inspiration for one of my 2011 holiday ornament designs:

Simply designed to point out how freaking festive your tree is.
