Holiday Song Inspired Project Blog Hop

Good Morning!

I’m pretty positive that I was a singer in a past life.

I love nothing more {well…except for maybe the Real Housewives of course} than jamming to some tunes in my car, at work, in the shower…when it comes to my “performances” I’m not picky.

If you ever pass me “performing” in my car just smile and wave 🙂

So when I heard about making a craft inspired by a holiday song the performer in me perked right up!

Good Morning!

Have you started decorating for Christmas yet?

There is something about Christmas decorations that make me really happy.

Like really…really happy 🙂

You see it took us 3 Christmases to finally get the garland on the mantel right.

So today I’d like to share the steps we take to make sure the garland on the mantel looks perfect…or at least perfect to us.
