One of our family’s favorites Christmas activities is decorating our home. From the lights on the outside of the house, to the Christmas tree, to the stockings on the mantle, wherever you look you’ll see a piece of Christmas.

Each decoration holds a special part of our family’s Christmas spirit, and every year, we create at least one handmade decoration to add to our collection. Sometimes our handmade décor lasts only one year, while others become valued pieces that last from year to year, priceless pieces of our family history.
