A Baby Changes Everything

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Welcome to my blog home for the next few months. Many of you wanted me to keep this in my family blog. I really considered that, but for several reasons, it just worked out better to have one that was JUST CHRISTMAS!

I hope you will find it easy to hop from from blog to the other. I will ALWAYS let you know when I have posted "Grammy" pictures or stories of my little men. But for the next few months, I will be totally consumed with WORK. SO many of you have been REALLY interested in what I DO, so holiday decorating tips, pictures, and stories will be posted here.

I really do want to be a blessing to you and make your decorating easier and maybe a tiny bit more magical!..That's what I do along with my elves...as we leave each home, we hope and pray that we have MADE A LITTLE MAGIC!

Please read the sidebar for a little story about the blog name. Read about My Girl here and Parker here
"A Baby Changed Everything"!
It is SO easy in my business, to get caught up in the glitter and glitz, in the trees and the lights, that I forget what the celebration is all about. I hate it when that happens, but on long days full of light problems, schedules running behind, and an aching body, I will admit I forget the Reason for the Season.
So the blog title is as much for me as anyone...I hope that each night or as often as possible, when I sign on, I will remember that
"A Baby Did Change Everything"!
I hope to have some pictures of our last years trees up by the end of the week, but wanted to give you a little preview of my new home. There will be many giveaways in the months to come, so tell your blog friends and neighbors. I probably will not have time to!
This is not in stone, but I am hoping to show you the homes we do every few days. So, once we start, look for lots of pictures, because I will probably have FEW words, as in few brain cells left at the end of the day.
Another feature I would like to have is a "show your tree"! If you do a special theme tree and would like to do a guest post, email me. I certainly do not know it all and could always use some new ideas. BUT, I do know a lot about trees and I want to share that with you.
In the next post, look for the post about a Special Tree that you can do! I will post a couple of trees from last year........


Earlier this week sweet Kat at Heart 2 Heart interviewed me. Hop over to her blog and read more about the Holiday Decorating Business.

I live many hundreds of miles from you in Alberta, Canada but I love Christmas and am looking forward to your tips and great ideas so I hope you won't mind if I follow along. I originally found your blog through the LPM blog. I am a grandma too and the name "Grammy Girlfriend" intrigued me so I visited your blog. I love the name of your new blog! It is so true in my life as well! Thanks for focusing us on the true meaning of Christmas!

I love how eloquently Leslie has styled this blog to your perfect style. The trees are amazing and mine is like the Charlie Brown tree next to yours. It pales!

The interview is up and running as I write this. I hope I do you proud.
