Christmas On My Mind


I know, it's so early...but I just can't deny my love of Christmas. Usually I start listening to Christmas music Oct 1, but I'm holding out this year so I can enjoy the fall season with my little tiny lumberjack and Hubs. We've already been apple picking and I am looking forward to going to the pumpkin patch in a few weeks :)

But yes, I love Christmas and I've been thinking about what I would like to ask Santa for this year. At first thought, this bag came to mind:
However, when I followed Cori's affiliate link, Amazon told me this beautiful Michael Kors bag was no longer available. Sad face.

So then I thought, OH! I love her skirts! I'd love one of THOSE...
But then I thought, naw... I need to pick something more practical. Not that this is the end-all-be-all Christmas list... but you know how I love to plan.

While cruising through my Bloglovin' feed I found this darling post by Oleander and Palm featuring DIY party invitations.
For Christmas or before (if we find a good sale) I am asking for a laser printer. This way, I can enhance my card making to yet another level. I already have the Stampin' Up envelope punch board on my list and being able to print right onto envelopes and cards would be so cool!

Now, the research party begins.

Does anyone have a printer that they love for card making? I'd love to hear your experiences in the comments!! 


  1. Michael Kors' still have that darling bag available! I've been eyeballing it for a while to! I'm such a sucker for navy & white / black & white striped anything!!

    We still have to get together soon mamm!! Coffee / Chi date soon?

  2. Love that the envelope punch board is on your list!! I have an HP Color Laser Jet CM1015 and I would not recommend it. It is about 7 years old so maybe they have changed/improved over the years, but I've never been a huge fan. I bought it for a few wedding DIY projects and it did pretty well with those, but didn't hold up well. I don't find the vibrancy in colors that I would like and it "streaks" a lot so you get your image carried through the page which is just yucky! Just my experience - if you find a good printer let me know!

  3. I thouht I was the only one dreaming about Christmas! Glad I'm not. ;)

    I'm a new follower! SO glad I found your blog!
