holiday <3

No School today!! I seriously only work one Friday in the entire month of November. It's bliss <3 So, me and the mutt got to sleep in today. My body only let me sleep in until 8:00 but is was sooooo nice :D
Do you want to see some #HOLYCUTE-ness?
Here are pics of the beautiful and cute paper banner that is hanging above my fireplace where our stockings are hung:

I crocheted the line, added some pom-poms, cut the letters out of my scrapbook stash, and used paper clips to hang them :) I love it. I got the idea from Elsie (she's too cute isn't she?)
Here is the Advent calendar that made for my Countdown to Christmas:

Our hand-made stockings:

And a sneak peek at the ornaments that I made for Kimi's ornament swap!! This is a picture before I finished them so they are even more cuter than this!
(vintage cookie cutters, Love, Elsie paper, pom-pons and more)

Eeeeek! My house is looking sooo cute <3
Ok, I am off to FINALLY see WTWTA with my mom today for a day off treat <3
