· With less than a dozen days left before Christmas, these Aged Mercury Glass Ornaments and  Super-easy Boxwood Garland are the quickest DIYs for your weekend and they pack a beautiful punch!

· Just like I am, many of you are busy behind the computer, compiling your favorite 2012 images into a press printed book to admire over the years. Have you seen this easy adorable personal touch  Alison added to her book this year? In a few years, I’ll be adoring the penmanship as much as the photos!

· Design Love Fest continually dresses my tech and I couldn’t resist their antler desktop background from yesterday!

· Here are some helpful tips for speeding up your blog load time!

· Have you logged onto the forum yet to download Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas? Yesterday’s download was 2 exclusive textures, Comfort & Joy, from Patti Brown of Kaleidoscope!

· We love Miss Modern’s recent  holiday inspiration board complete with adorable free printable gift tags! Stripes, polka dots and even a sparkly number!

HAPPY FRIDAY ALL! Cozy up next to a fire tonight! xoxo
