The Blush List – Very Merry

Knitting // I love the style of this speckled hat pattern by Quince & Co on Frolic Blog.

Crochet // These snuggly crochet slippers by Lindsi of People Webs look so cozy!

Etsy // These Cirque Du Noel Christmas cards from The Black Apple are so cute! This time of year can definitely feel a bit like a circus. ūüėČ

Style // How could you not “be happy” in a sweater? This sweater is so cheerful even if it is a little¬†extremely expensive.

Art // Kelli Murray’s beautifully illustrated gift tags are so festive! They are available as a free download here.

Food // Baking sugar cookies on Christmas Eve is a big tradition for my family. I love the look of this piped ombre reindeer!

I love each one of these festive finds. I can’t believe Christmas is just a week away! Even though this time of year can be a bit stressful (life is more stressful than ever this year) I love taking the time to relax and spend time with friends and family. I don’t know what I would do without their support. As the year comes to an end, we all start thinking about our plans for the future and what we would like to change in the New Year. These thoughts have been on my mind a lot lately. I look forward to the changes that are sure to come and I am excited about the possibilities of 2013!

Also, thank you for entering the Honeycomb Print Shop giveaway this week! The winner is…Scout! Congratulations! I will email you the details soon.

I hope you had a great weekend! I had a pretty busy past few days but thankfully I had time to do some Christmas decorating and knitting today. What are you up to? Are you getting excited about 2013 too?

Happy Sunday!

    I am glad you admitted that sweater is expensive, sometimes it makes me wonder if some bloggers are made of money when they post things and are like “This is cute and I would get it!” and completely ignore that it is not within a normal person’s price range! Also that hat is pure love! I like how this blush list is sort of color coordinated hehe.

    explained, ” She needs to learn to be wonderful to everybody – because you’ll meet them in route down. “
