Creativity during the Holidays

I have had this blog post in my mind since the month of December began. I wanted to share some of the creative projects my family and I tackled over the holiday season. So I figured since I still have a few days left in January that it was not too late to post?

 I apologize for the inability to keep this blog current, and I really wish I had the time to keep this blog updated but I choose to designate my time to my family first. But none the less I still want this blog to be a place to share and inspire creativity, so I hope you all understand and that you are not currently burnt out on all things holiday.

So any-who here are some of the creative ways we spent celebrating the winter holiday season!

First ever attempt at homemade cinnamon rolls. We decided to make this a Christmas Eve tradition.

My daughters and I went out to the back field and cut some evergreen branches to celebrate the Winter Solstice.  I added some of my handcrafted fiber pom poms (which you can buy here.)

A Birthday Party!

My baby turned 1 on the 30th of December. We celebrated by having a small Mickey Mouse themed family birthday party! My oldest daughter LOVES birthday parties and she has become quite the party planner and hostess. We try and make as many homemade decorations as we can, so we had Dad print off some Mickey Mouse birthday themed coloring sheets for our main decor. And we made these really cute Oreo Mickey Mouse cupcakes!

My baby loves anything Italian to eat so we made baked ziti. And my mom brought homemade parmesan garlic rosemary bread and I added some fresh rosemary from my garden for garnish!

And last but not least our 2011 handmade Christmas card. Designed by my oldest daughter and carved/printed by me out of a rubber block (linoleum block printing). And embellished with googly eyes and a red bow by both of us.

From my family to yours we wish you Love and Joy for all of your Days!

I hope you had a creative end to your 2011 year.

Love,

New Year

Filed under: inspiration — Eve Peach @ 18:11

My wish for everyone this New Year is for us all to experience more moments of peace, create more meaningful connections, gain greater understanding, practice more compassion, and to develop an even deeper empathy for our fellow brothers and sisters.

Have a Blessed and Happy New Year of Life. May we all go forth and cultivate Love. Cheers!
