Fire Place Tools I am Canadian and darned proud of it but with that brings some really frigid temperatures. If you don’t live in an area that gets cold you definitely have never been excited when it gets up to minus 40, when it went from minus 41 to minus 30 while I was grocery shopping the other day I felt like I had hit the jackpot and actually had to take my coat off. Layers people, it’s all in the layers.

So many of us have woodstoves or fireplaces in our homes as a source of heat and some pretty too but they can be not only expensive for wood if you can’t cut your own but they can be soooo dirty, and I mean I have found mice in people’s wood piles INSIDE dirty. The wood chips don’t only keep us warm they keep the critters warm too.

While I don’t have a woodstove, and I wished I did because the heat given off calms those achey flare ups I get in my body, I think it is important that you keep your woodstove or fireplace as a focal point for your room that everyone can enjoy sitting around. The best way to do that is to keep it clean and to have beautiful and functional tools to help you use your fireplace safely and in style. Let’s face it, we don’t like to use things that are ugly.

So, I found this website that sells some amazing looking and fully functional fireplace tools, everything from things to help you place your log on the fire safely without reaching in with your hands to your basic fireplace tool pokers and cleaning sets.

If you or someone you know have a fireplace and are looking for that added touch of beauty I definitely recommend Northline Express Fireplace Tools.

Advent Week TwoAdvent week two began yesterday, lighting the PEACE candle was very special for me, ceremonious if you will. I haven’t had a count down to the cradle wreath before, counting each day of December up until Christmas Eve. So, as I lit the first candle and then the six between to mark each day of the week, and then finally the peace candle marking the second week I felt excited and joyous.

Christmas is normally one of the worst times of year for me. Three years ago I spent 8 weeks in bed starting on December 26th. I didn’t leave the house for anything during that time. I just slept. Even though God was the center of my life I wasn’t putting Him first the way I thought I was.

Studying His Word and creating a relationship with Him has definitely turned things around for me. Back then, I read, I prayed, but I didn’t listen and I didn’t obey Him or the plans He had for me. Without realizing it, I had only been going through the motions of a “good Christian” rather than truly putting God first in my life.

Over the last two years my values and morals have definitely become more concrete. I stopped being an in-the-closet-Christian and decided to wear my faith in God with pride. I began to edit the negative out of my life and keep the people who I knew had faith too and would help me in learning and in getting through. I decided that being modest and feminine is important to me and have been trying to implement more and more of that into my life. Constantly removing clothing and other things that just didn’t say what my heart does, out of my life. My cleansing out the bad and negative things I have found a few things out about myself.

I am beautiful. Overweight and all. My heart is beautiful and I was perfectly created by God – and He doesn’t make mistakes or typo’s. He knew exactly what He was doing when He created me and I have faith that the people who He has put in my path are there for a reason, even if I don’t always see it.

Jesse TreeI have bought home décor that celebrates my faith, and how I feel as a Christian woman. Those things that I have purchased can be used throughout the year and be switched up easily without having a ton in storage.

Not having to go through a million storage bins to prepare for the holidays has been amazing. I literally spent less than ten minutes in my closet to pull out some candles for my Advent wreath, my Advent scrapbook page and a wax melter in the shape of a Christmas ornament. Everything else was transformed with simple things like red candles instead of white, glass I already had out was moved to reflect light better.

Keeping it simple really is the key to my survival this year. Starting off with a list of things to purchase for décor and gifts and getting everything in one trip was really helpful. My back is very messed up so I can’t do much else right now even if I wanted to, but I have to admit I am loving the little vignette’s that are dedicated to God and the reason for the season, Christ’s birth. One antique chest hold my wreath and my countdown flip calendar. The top of my printer cabinet has my Jesse tree, a candle lantern, my Advent scrapbook page and a wooden wick candle. The coffee table has a candle trio on a black platter that I keep out in different places throughout the year, right now it adds extra warmth to the unfinished room. The nativity set is in the family room where everyone can see it.

It smells SOOOO good in here with all of the candles! Even when they aren’t lit there is a lovely fragrance that brings a warmth all on its own. Finally cranberry tea, pumpkin spiced hot cocoa and cinnamon sticks add seasonal flavors.

Reading The Greatest Gift: Unwrapping the Full Love Story of Christmas each day and answering the questions has also been awesome. Ann Voskamp writes a lot like I do when I do poetry or journaling so I can really feel her emotion and understand her heart.

I am also doing the Hello Mornings Power Pack study with my Hello Mornings group, except I do it each evening once I have lit the Advent candles. For more information you can click on it in the sidebar. It is really a great study and I am blessed by it each day!

This is the first year that I have really been excited for Christmas, decorating and finding that what I already have is MORE than enough to bring the Lord praise! It took me a year of writing what I am grateful for to see that I actually have it all.

CCricut Creationsricut has some awesome deals going on right now and coming up so I am giving you a list of the current deals and a sneak peak at the Black Friday sales.

I use my Cricut to make cards and scrapbook pages as well as gift tags. I even have a Christmas cartridge that I used when my son was little to build a little village of houses out of card stock!

What is a Cricut machine? It cuts and can color shapes, letters, cards, tags, fonts, and a million other things. The speed in which it cuts is AMAZING and extremely precise which allows for quick and unique items with each use.

I have about 30 different cartridges for mine and each one contains fonts and shapes galore. For the price of a couple of packs of scrapbooking embellishments your Cricut is more than paid for AND you get to keep using it!

I have mine set up right above my printer because I use it  that often.
