Watching: SOA

Reading: Kinfolk Vol. 14

Loving: the Christmas cards that we have gotten from friends and family. It warms my heart!

Playing with: the new font I downloaded called "Raleway". I love it.

Thinking about: getting a new blog design. I love what 17th Avenue Designs is doing.

Working on: new paintings, always.

Tasting: Tazo green tea.

Listening to: "Goddess" by BANKS. Seriously, that song has been on repeat for days.

Excited to: only six more days until we leave for Arizona! I can't wait to see our families!

Thank you to Danielle at Sometimes Sweet for the idea for this post. What are you currently into?

Spray-Painted Christmas Ornaments

Jason and I had some fun playing with spray-paint the other night. We picked up these white ornaments from Hobby Lobby, and a can of black spray-paint. It was our first time really experimenting with spray-paint, so for first-timers I think they turned out pretty cool! We practiced on a large sheet of paper first to get that ombre effect. It's always fun to try something new.

Have you ever experimented with spray-paint?

Sugar Cookies

This is the first time I made sugar cookies on my own, and the best part about baking them was using these cute little cookie cutters! I used my grandmother's recipe, but changed the ingredients to healthier options like using gluten-free all-purpose flour, organic cane sugar, and skim milk.

Are you baking for the holidays?

Yes Please

Un | I have been reading Yes Please by Amy Poehler, and drinking a green juice called Monkey Business from Raw Republic. Both are amazing.

Deux | Jason has been loving the advent calendar I made him, and my new Santa mug has definitely sparked the holiday spirit here at the George Ch√Ęteau.

Trois | our Christmas card arrived! I love how it turned out. We will definitely do holiday cards from now on.

Scotty McGee the Tree

Meet Scotty McGee the Tree!

We are keeping it simple this year with just two strands of white lights on our Christmas tree. It smells so fresh, and it is absolutely beautiful!

How are you decorating your tree this year?
