This recognition of my work was and is a momentous time for me, my career, and this blog so I have practically been bursting at the seams with excitement, wanting to share the news with you. It feels like a dream to be asked to be a part of this magazine since it has long been a favorite Christmas publication. Each holiday season I can hardly wait for this special interest issue to come out. Being part of this group means more than I can ever express. For this particular shoot, BHG wanted my space to be decorated differently from what I shared on the blog. Therefore, after Christmas last year, I had to take everything down and redecorate. In preparation for the shoot, amidst lots of other things that were going on, I baked a batch of my Sweater Weather Cookies , repainted my wood bead garland , redecorated three trees, and more.

Looking for new ways to embellish your home this Christmas? From a magical DIY wreath to a quick and easy terrarium display, here is the inspiration you need to fill your home with the spirit of the season. Use secateurs to harvest a selection of flexible branches from your yard, then bind the branches together in a wreath shape using natural-coloured jute rope. To add the finishing touches, tie on a duo of small metal buckets filled with plants covered in red blooms, weave a little fresh-cut ivy into the wreath and press in a few small pieces of green moss real or faux. Just slip them into a woven basket place them on saucers to catch any excess water and display your haul beside candle-lit lanterns.
Your delicious Christmas!
