No, not the laundry detergent. Or the short skirted, toe touch & high five variety.

I am talking about CHRISTMAS CHEER my good people!!!!!

I adore this time of year. Lights, the excited faces of Santa and elves and snowmen and sweet mooses (yes, I am a firm believer that moose should have an 's' on the end if its plural- don't judge), and just an overall sigh of relief that another hard year is almost over. Cozy nights and a fresh start are around the corner.

To celebrate the Christmas season, I created a (reusable!) wreath. I got the twig wreath at a thrift store for 60 cents, bought a few embellisments and a letter at Walmart for less than $7.00 all together. So with a little ingenuity and some hot glue,  this is a less than $10 wreath to hang on our door and welcome this wonderful time of year! (Plus, I can take the greenery out and recycle it for Spring, Summer, and Fall too!! Booyah!)

I used a lighter to burn the edges of the 'A' and shabby it up a little bit. :)

The burlap holding the wreath is cut from burlap used in our wedding as the runner.

So, Merry Christmas from the busy Atkins household to yours!!

Until next time,
