Christmas for me seemed to be here and over in the blink of an eye!
As I took down the Christmasy stuff I decided to decorate my mantle in a winter theme
until February, when I will Valentine it up!
For the year 2012 I resolve to be more prepared for Christmas!
I LOVE Christmas and LOVE to do all things Christmas related!
