Happy New Year!!!!

As I start my post, I have to laugh!   I see that my last post, as well as so many others from the past,  started with "I can't believe it's been XX since I last posted".  Now here I am nearly 2 months later starting to say the same thing!   This blogging things seems to be quite the challenge for me!  LOL  
When I started it up again, it was because after selling my business a year ago,  I was finally feeling like I had the time to commit to it... How quickly things can change!!!  The selling of the business turned into a Train Wreck!   It's a very long story, but over the last few months I've been helping the family that bought it try to bring it back to life. With my regular part time job, helping with the flower shop, and running my Kimber K Creations business,  I've been busier than ever!   BUT!  I have been crafting :)   and crafting and crafting and crafting!   I was so busy filling orders over Christmas that I barely had time to breath!  let alone blog!!   LOL... but here I am :)  Finally making time.   Thank you to those that are hanging in there with me :)

So, is it too late to share Christmas?  I hope not, because I am doin it!!!!    
I LOVE decorating my house for the seasons.  Christmas time just makes me so happy... I love the twinkling lights, the red, the silver.... it just makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside!    So without further ado.... Here is the Kinion House for Christmas, 2013 <3
Here is my Christmas Tree.   I was late getting it up this year!  Usually I like to have it up the weekend after Thanksgiving, but this year I wasn't able to get it up until December 11th!  And the only reason that I got it done then was because I woke up one morning at 4:30 and thought... well,  this is a great time to decorate the tree! 
My Precious Moments Nativity and the "Oh Holy Night" sign I made.  
My door shelf <3  Love love decorating this for the seasons :)   This year It was perfect for this little Snoman themed tree and my lighted snowmen.  No, I didn't leave that random candy cane hanging there!   LOL  

I've had these guys for about 15 years and I still love them :)   The countdown to Christmas sign is one I made for my craft fair season... I decided I really  needed to keep one for myself :)  

A close up of the little snowman tree :)  

This is an old window and shelf that hangs over our couch.  I also love decorating this for the different seasons and holidays.   Those ornaments are Dollar Tree ornaments that I decorated with white vinyl.   Found the idea on pinterest and loved it so much I had to recreate it.  

Close up... So stinkin cute!! 

The top of our entertainment center... Yes, we still have one!  LOL... I think we may be one of the only families I know that don't yet have a flat screen.  I'm kinda cheap like that :)   LOL 

These are my Believe blocks that I finally got finished for myself this year!   I've been meaning to make these for at least 2 years!   

this is the shelf we built last spring to go above our French Doors.  Another web find.  I'll post the link a little later.  I love love love how this turned out.   You can see a better picture of it in the living room picture below.  

Even the guest bath gets "Christmafied"  :)   There's more..... but I can't find the pictures!  

This was my table set up for our Christmas Buffet.  We don't do a big Christmas dinner, but instead have a big celebration Christmas Eve and we do lots of hour devours and snacks.  

All ready for our Christmas Eve celebration.  :)  My favorite time of year!!!!

Our Hot Cocoa bar... with Homemade Peppermint Marshmallows that I meant to post about on my blog but didn't get around to :(  

SNOW!!!!!  We got snow!!!  Not exactly on Christmas, but on December 8th and Thank goodness we had our lights up and the house was decorated inside!   I got to enjoy Christmas lights on snow for the first time in my life, I think :)   We get snow every so often, but it's rare we get more than a skiff and NEVER on Christmas!!!   It was wonderful :)   

Well that's my tour :)   I hope everyone had a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!  and Wishing everyone a blessed NEW YEAR!!!!

  1. Your decorations were pretty! It's true that you can do plenty of work at 4:30, especially you weren't able to sleep at all! It's good that you're helping to save the old business that you sold. Did you know the family that bought it from you? It looks like it since you're helping out. Either way, I'm hoping the business sorts itself out!
