Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #82 Christmas Celebration! It’s finally the last party before Christmas. I keep reminding myself that God is still on the throne, in spite of the new covid strain in Europe and all the other crazy things going on in the world right now. I hope to hide in my little cottage cocoon with my immediate family and celebrate my Dear Savior’s birth this week. How about you guys? Are you forgoing extended family gatherings?
In spite of the holiday rush, I worked on a few projects last week:
The Little Cottage Link Party is open from Monday, 9am EST, through Thursday, 9am EST (I’m leaving the party open a day longer this year). My goal for this link party is to help myself and others thrive in the home. I’ve spent the last two decades raising five homeschooled children in a beautiful little cottage in the South Carolina Lowcountry. In my opinion, the home is the most important place on earth. It doesn’t matter if you’re married, single, empty-nesting, or raising a large family-your home can still be a refreshing oasis of love and beauty to those who enter.
Time for the Features!
I chose mostly simple items this week that could be created on the spur of the moment. You probably couldn’t make Linda’s card on a whim, but you might be able to make something similiar.
Jasmine created her own winter wonderland with a Dollar Tree craft star.
Linda used an interesting color scheme for her snowstorm Christmas card. The pink and turquoise pop alongside the light and dark greens. It is a Christmas Card and New Year’s too. It kills two birds with one stone.
There was no way I could resist featuring Mel’s hand-painted red truck! She completed this fun project in a mere 15 minutes. It takes me that long just to get ready to paint.
This sea star ornament is right up this coastal girl’s alley. Glitter, pearls, and shells are perfect for Christmas. They would look great as decorative baubles on wrapped presents.
When I saw Tee’s snow globe, I couldn’t figure out how on earth she made it. You’ll have watch the video in her post that shows you how to make your own bottle cutter for under $10.
When the kids were small I had a friend who baked real gingerbread houses for about 12 kids and invited us over to decorate them each year. The only thing we had to bring was a bag of candy for each child. I miss those days. The gingerbread houses that Priyam made are easy and stress-free. Enjoy your little kid Christmases while you can! Pretty soon they’ll have Apple watches and cell phones in their stockings like my kids.
It’s no secret that this blogger enjoys photography! She kept last year’s live tree, then spray painted it silver and added blue lights this year. Klara’s photos are amazing to look at.
