The Cutest Holiday Touches From Cranny And B- YARN TREES!

Well hello there, my name is Sarah Kate and I am thrilled to be here today to share a few snippets of holiday cheer from my home.  I love life with my sweet husband, our two fantastic boys, Graeme and Job, and the best pup ever, miss Cal-girl, who may or may not eat way too many of Graeme's happy meal fries, wink wink!  This year, out of necessity, I've had to keep things really, really simple ( read: mama to a two year old and a newborn ).  


I love Christmas, the reason we celebrate it, and the preparations for it. And, thankfully, simple can be good, not only for our home, but for our souls.


My husband and I have always had a desire to adopt and out of that desire, I opened a little etsy shop, Cranny, to begin our adoption fund and also to foster creativity within.  I have found that I particularly love to work with yarn and felt and out of that love sprang my Cranny yarn letters and yarn trees.  I should probably confess that I have a small forest of yarn trees on top of my piano and it continues to grow as I daily decide that I need just one more!




 My little Graeme is so proud of his first piece of official artwork.  I also love that he refers to his reindeer as a carimoose!




( this is what my dresser really looks like and I love it. )









I love the giant chalkboard that my husband made and gifted to me on my first mother's day.  It is probably my most favorite thing in my home.  We leave love notes for each other on it, write down important things that would otherwise get lost, and my Graeme-bear thoroughly enjoys giving it a splash of color with chalk.  For this month, however, it holds our handmade advent calendar.  As you can clearly see, drawing is not one of my gifts, wink wink!


Thank you so much, Shelli, for allowing me to share our little view of Christmas.  I've so enjoyed being here and wish you and all of your readers a very joyous Noel.  
Merry Christmas!

Ok, so I saw Sarah Kate's home on a linky party (can't remember which one) and I am obsessed with the yarn trees and also this Jesus banner and asked Sarah Kate to share them with you! Thanks Sarah Kate!!!!
