Welcome, welcome! Here we are past the mid-point of December, and Christmas is next week!
I know you're all busily taking care of each part of your busy life and preparing for Christmas, so I'm very grateful you're here for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace. Here are some highlights from last week's party.
Need a way to decorate your Christmas table but don't want to spend much money? Tiffany from Tee Diddly Dee gives complete instructions for making these Christmas mason jars and, if you really want to sharpen your skills, the wooden box to hold them.
Or, for a simple but still beautiful way to decorate, check out this post from Satsuma Designs--you'll get full instructions for making these lovely evergreen candle rings.
Looking for some Christmas crafts for your kids or grandkids (or just for you!)? Naush from Doodle Buddies shows you how to make these adorable ornaments from materials bought at Dollar Tree.
Want to do some Christmas baking? Arlene from Flour on My Face shares a recipe for Mexican wedding cookies.
Or if you want to try a little more ambitious baking project, check out the gorgeous Buche de Noel shared by Cindy at Mom, the Lunch Lady.
If what you really need are some tips for just making it through this Christmas, read this post from Jennifer Lambert at A Sacred Balance.
And if that old enemy comparison raises its ugly head this Christmas, I wrote a post called "The Thief of Christmas Joy" that I'd love for you to read (and please share it, if you're so inclined!).
Thank you to everyone who joined last week's party!
