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.

Today I want to share some of my favorite ornaments from my Christmas tree. I made these a few years ago but just love seeing them each year. You can also update them by adding new photos, but I like looking at pictures of my kids when they were so little.

These are super simple too, you just need a few things: some cardboard polaroids, I got mine from Polaroid Fotobar. I thought they would look more interesting than just a normal photo, but you can certainly use a plain photo or even put a white piece of card stock behind a plain photo. I spray painted some mini clothes pins gold and tied a piece of twine through them. I made a little banner with scrap book paper and burlap. I then taped the banner to the photo and clipped on the clothes pin and that's it!

I love having a Christmas tree that reminds me of my family. I think eventually I will have to update the little photos because Elly doesn't like that she doesn't have any hair in them haha! These would also make cute gifts for friends or grandparents.
