If you are a new SuperMom (welcome!) or even if you joined the club for a while ago (thanks for following!) you may not know I'm the proud mama of 7. The Super 7 if you will. For the last several years I've suffered through a hodge-podge of stockings that match only in the sense that they are Christmas Stockings. This year I had enough and did something about it. Custom Stockings on a Budget. Ho Ho Ho!

There are AH.MAZ.ING Christmas Prinatables out there. I have Pin'd tons of them. But this year I was searching for something other then the typical 'Merry Christmas' or 'Believe' signs (although I do have those up too!). This year I wanted something centered around Christ. In my search I found 25 beautiful free printables that focus on just that.
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LEGO. All opinions are 100% mine.
When the holiday season rolls around I feel like I'm going 90 miles an hour ALL DAY LONG. I have the tendency to try and cram in 100 million things to do in a three-week period. This year I scratched "Christmas Card Photo Session" off of my to-do list. Trying to pose seven kiddo's, two of which are teething twins, was not going to happen. Thank good 'ol St. Nick for the LEGO Minifigure Family

I am a big believer in handmade gifts. Especially this time of year. And I think us SuperMom's appreciate anything handmade. Especially smelly good lotions and scrubs and other fun bath products that we would never go out to purchase for ourselves. Or am I the only one here? So when I came across a recipe that melds a sugar scrub and soap together I about fell out of my chair. I bring you a wonderfully fun (and easy) handmade gift: Double Sugar Scrub Cubes with Honey!

I was in need of a wreath for my Christmas Mantle but didn't have the time or the energy to create anything elaborate. So what's a busy SuperMom to do? Makeover a simple twig Dollar Tree wreath into an Icy Winterland Wreath!

In the past Mercury Glass was one of those rare treasures you would find at a garage sale or thrift store and just squeal over. Now I don't know what genius came up with a DIY version but I'm betting my bottom dollar it was a SuperMom who wanted some Mercury Glass of her own but refused to pay the antique store cost. Mercury meets Mason Jar in my take of a icy winter lantern to light up my Christmas mantle.

Growing up in California I was always dreaming of a white Christmas. I remember one year it was literally freezing cold on Christmas Eve and my sweet mother put a sprinkler on that night to surprise us. We woke up to everything covered in sparkling white crystally ice. It was beautiful and I will never forget that magical morning.

For me, anything that falls under the 'Christmas Food' category has to meet three very important items of criteria. Delicious, Festive and Easy. Not only is this Christmas Tree Tart savory with a focaccia-like crust covered in melted cheese, and the asparagus turned tree scream Christmas but it is S.I.M.P.L.E. Quick to throw together, quick in the oven and quick off the table so grab a piece before it is gone!

Holy Schnikes it's the LAST week of the Challenge and I can't even believe it. I must say if it wasn't for all the great support and encouragement I got from ya'll I might not of made it. But it feels fantastic to be rid of all the clutter that grated on my last nerve. Finally we tackle the Garage, and probably the place most of your donations have landed. Not to mention the stuff normally kept away for no one else to see...

It's December! It's Christmas time! My most favorite time of the year!
The traditions, the parties. Family, friends and food. Ooooohhhh, and Christmas fudge.
Reliving the magic through your kiddo's eyes and the feeling you get being the one to pass that magic on.
And celebrating the birth of our Savior. Loving one another.
So for the next couple weeks I'll be sharing some of the ways I craft, cook and create memories for my family that will (hopefully) last throughout the eternities. Then I will be taking a little time off to focus on what is most important. My family.
You can find the 12 Days of Christmas button on the right and I will be posting links here to all my festive projects, food and memory making traditions as they are posted.
