About Me

My photo
Hey, it's Chelsy, with a Y! I am a wife to my sweet prince, and mother to one spunky little princess and one handsome little ham of a prince. Painting is my drug of choice. Wine is good too. I'm known to speak without thinking and eat to much chocolate. I love meeting new people, and learning new things. So this is my journey through some not so glorious moments, some not so intelligent thoughts and some possibly crafty ideas.

Busy Little Elf!


I know I am far from being the only person that is busy this time of year, but it sometimes feels like it! There are so many things I want wanted to do and make for Christmas this year, but with family parties, birthday parties, extended family parties, church parties,  oh and did I mention an ER trip(Yes it was my first, and quite traumatic!), I just ran out of time.


Here is our tough little lady when we got there...

She wasn't even scared! (I was)

Here she is after, a little upset...Poor baby. But no stitches, YAY!

I was really stressed about it until I spent some much needed quite time this morning in prayer. I realized that it doesn't matter what gets done, or doesn't get done, I should be thankful that I have an AMAZING family to spend Christmas with. And they don't care if our wreath isn't quite straight, or there are still ornaments in boxes that didn't make it to the tree, or the bows on the presents aren't as pretty as I would have liked. They only care that we spend time together rejoicing in Jesus' birth, drinking hot chocolate around the tree and singing our favorite Christmas carols. So I'm going to enjoy the rest of this week, and if a dessert or two doesn't get made, and we have leftovers for dinner everynight this week I'm going to laugh and thank the Lord. And you should too! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get to spend so much needed quality time with your family also. See you all after the New Year!

Oh here are a few pics I wanted to share of "The First Ever Phillips Family Gingerbread House" (yeah say that one five times fast:)


She was saying "CHEESE"! Silly girl!

Merry Christmas Y'all,

....the lights outside!

I'm not going to bore you with all the details of our Christmas lights outside, so here are a couple of pictures for your looking pleasure :)


Less is more, right?! It was cold and raining so the lights got the shaft, but we still have the prettiest house on the block:)

Happy Wednesday,

Meet (some of) our Christmas Decor...

I have been trying and trying to get all of my decorations up and done before this weekend so I could show them to you wonderful people...But I just don't think I am going to make it (sigh :/) Then I remembered this post from the very witty Chris over at JAG. She's a genius, and the answer to my decorating crisis. There is nothing I love more than seeing crafty, talented bloggers not have it all together;)(That's mean, isn't it?!)
Anyway-Here are half of my Christmas decorations, Enjoy!

This is our tree, Christi. She's only wearing half of her "clothes" (ornaments ;) But...to my shock and utter dismay, she has all of her "children" (presents;) sheltered close under her arms. This usually never never happens until right before Christmas. You see Christi is a little irresponsible and usually has all her kids scattered in stores all over the state. (Some are possibly even in other states...YIKES!)


Here's is our wreath:

She is finished, but I am not lovin the bow so therefore she made it into this post :)

Our Mantle:

I don't even know where to start with him. The stockings are hung, for now, they will soon be coming down to be named. And everything else is just kinda thrown up there until it finds it's new home. (Who knows where and when that will be...) I need to figure out something to add dimension and depth. I have a few empty boxes to wrap and add big pretty bows too, but other than that I don't have a clue. Can you help?? Any ideas are welcomed with open arms :)



And finally...THE table:

Yeah, that's pretty much it...My beloved Christmas plates, and a table cloth. I can't decide what to do for a centerpiece. IDEAS PEOPLE??!!!

I am also anxiously awaiting my countdown blocks from Scribble It. Yay!! Anyway-I hope you enjoy half of my decorations :) Stay tuned for the other half...Happy Thursday to you all.
