oh my. relax. rejoice.

is it a bad thing that i just want to rush thru the holidays and just "get it all done"? each item i am able to check off the "do to" list brings me such pleasure!

i am aware that i should be relishing in sentiment, tradition, and thankfulness. i am. i did ( i checked it off the list.. so i know i did!)

i'm really am trying to step back and savor.
relax and rejoice. (it's worth a try!)
here are a few of my Holiday guilty pleasures.

the adorable and ever so creative Amy Powers is at it again.
check out the Holiday issue of Inspired Ideas... it's magical.aren't these lovely? i think i'll whip up a few this weekend.
we could use some snow flakes around here!

chillin' music. love her so much.
A Very She & Him Christmas is a collection of holiday tunes
from Zooey Deschanel (She) & M. Ward (Him).

Christmas Mojitos! this is what my guests and i will be indulging in on Christmas Eve.

this stuff is A M A Z I N G!
the sweet Katie Camaro turns out some of the best ever Hot Fudge Sauce.
10 flavors -of course good on ice cream...
but try stirring it into coffee and cocoa, heck!
my favorite way is to eat it right off the spoon!
(this is honestly on my 12yr old son's Christmas list!)

curling up on the couch with my favorite Christmas books.

(Have a wonderful Holiday and New Year... I am hereby signing off until mid January 2012! i'm working on lots of new projects, new art, new looks, & gearing up for a visit mid January visit to the Gift Mart in Atlanta to spark some inspiration and see what is on the horizon.)
