The magic of Christmas is all around.

The many sounds, smells and sweet treats make the Christmas Season... Magical

Many traditions and ideas help make the holiday bright and bring families together.

Here is a few of my traditions and decorating ideas...

This tree is filled with Santa's and Reindeer. It is an I spy tree and my grandkids have to guess how many Santa's and Reindeer are on the tree. They look forward to it every year and I always add a new fun twist to the game.

This is a sample of handmade ornaments and pillow with wooly stuffed sheep. Everything is handmade and the idea came from an inspired Christmas fabric from years ago.

Wooly Sheep with small
crafted wreaths and bells attached!

Ornaments hand painted and stitched.

Inspired printed fabric, framed and made into a picture!

At the base of the tree small pillows and ornaments to compliment the decor.

Many of you may remember the Printed Fabric by Moda.
I designed a quilt using the stripe floral and made a poinsetta great way to use a stripe and directional piece of fabric.

One of my all time favorite quilts....
this was a design years ago and combines piecing and applique. I used a variety of plaids, stripes and small christmas prints. I found a spot in my stairwell which is high and well lit so I place it below the window shutters and it hangs for everyone to enjoy. I filled the stairway with snowmen, pillows and other traditional decorations.

The fun of the holidays fills my home and is enjoyed by everyone.
Share the season and the traditions!
Watch for our free pattern and more ideas tomorrow!
