I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

I used some of these lightweight frames from Michaels to add pictures of my kids and to help personalize the tree a bit more. I also spray painted some of last year's bulbs gold so that I didn't have to buy all new bulbs.
