25 Days of Christmas – Days 3 – 12

Well what can I say except it’s been CRAZY busy! This past weekend I did tons of baking and I have been busy tying up odds and ends along with designing and ordering Christmas cards, except my own of course, lol!  However, I have been a little bummed that we haven’t had much for snow. It just doesn’t feel much like Christmas with no snow:(. I am starting to doubt we will have a white Christmas. No sense in complaining about it as Christmas will come,  snow or no snow! I have been however very happy that I have actually been posting a picture per day on Facebook. Whoot, I defiantly get a high five for that, ha ha! Here are days 3-12, enjoy I am having lots of fun at this project!

25 Days of Christmas

Hard to believe this yr is almost over and there is only 22 days left until Christmas! This yr I have been working hard on homemade ornament, garland and many other projects. We got a really nice real tree this year and everything looks awesome on it! I am really happy with it as I have never been a very “crafty” person. But thanks to Pinterest, that is changed!

I have challenged myself and a  friend  to post a picture a day until Christmas. I have called mine the 25 days of Christmas. Here are my first 2 days of Christmas. I am not sure I will blog everyday, but I will post on my Facebook everyday, then maybe blog every 2 or 3 days.

I hope you all take the time to really enjoy this time time of year. I can not WAIT for snow! I keep checking the weather forecast to see when we are going to get some snow, like a little kid that sits in front of the window. The snow is my sunshine! This month I plan to make memories, start tradition’s, take time with my kids and really enjoy it. Not to get caught up in all the hassle and bussle. Watch Christmas movies and drink hot coca! My house is decorated to the hilt, some might say, Santa has thrown up in here, lol! But it’s perfect for us! Merry Christmas!







Etsy Store and this crazy thing we call life!

Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s been almost a month since my last blog post. I have been crazy busy with fall sessions and just life in general. I have had a couple of personal family matters to try and understand and so blogging gets put on the back burner. I have had many sessions that I have done but have not posted. One of these days I will be all caught up, I might be 50 before it happens, but some day I will be caught up! In the meantime, I have  been busy adding new Christmas themed prints to my Etsy Shop. I have also designed an AWESOME nature calendar. It is 4×6 and comes with a black easel. It’s a PERFECT Christmas gift for someone or for yourself. It fits perfectly on your desk or on the dresser. And when the calendar is all done,  you can cut the pgs out, put them in a frame or on your fridge. The pictures are just way to pretty to waste!  Be sure to check my shop out here:  http://www.etsy.com/people/summerl . If you see a Print that you like but not in the size you want, just message me and I can get the correct size ordered for you!

Another thing I have been going crazy on is Christmas crafts. I have already made home made ornaments, the start of some garland and Christmas Trees. I have lots of thoughts and ideas that I want to try and bake this holiday season. I can owe most of this to Pinterest. Never heard of Pinterest before, well you NEED to check it out, but I warn you, it’s addicting. I am pretty sure it’s almost as addicting to crack, lol! But it is So MUCH fun! Here is a link to my Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/summerlacey/ Be sure to follow me!

And just for kicks and giggles because I believe no post is complete with out a picture! Meet the newest member of our family. Remi. As if our lives were not crazy enough we decided and I caved into getting ANOTHER dog! I think I have totally done mental to be frank. But here she is, what a total cutie, until she put a hole in my slipper;)





Family of 5

This family sure has grown over the past couple of years! I have watched them grow over the past few years and was excited when mom contacted me again this year, she wanted to mentally prepare me that their family had grown by 2 more little ones! We meet at the park on a beautiful and WARM afternoon! I had so much fun laughing and playing with them! We are all so busy and consumed with work, projects, how clean our house is, we need to take time to enjoy the little things in life, and this is def one of them!

Adorable interactions you captured, beautiful family!


With Halloween right around the corner I thought I would take a few pics of my Halloween decor. Just like Christmas I have a Halloween village, it’s not nearly as big and doesn’t take the whole weekend to set up but it’s fun just the same! It is hard to believe my fall decor will be coming down next week & my Christmas stuff will be coming out! CRAZY! However, I am looking forward to the winter prediction, lol!:)



My grandma made me these painted figures. I LOVE them! I remember when we went together to the pottery store, I picked out what I wanted her to paint and she painted them all for me. I have LOTS of painted things that my grandmother has painted over the years.
