Welcome 2011

Happy New Year everyone!  I'm so excited for 2011 - not sure exactly what this year has in store for us, but I can only imagine based on the blessings we've been given in years past.

I was so excited thinking about all that we have in the coming months, that I went straight to Picnik and whipped up this little beaute of all our upcoming Winter Activities.
It's a cute and cheap way I thought to change out my Christmas Mantel for something a little more wintery...and personalized.

Once I had it created, I simply sent it to my local FedEx Kinkos to be printed (our color printer has no think a simple trip to Staples could solve that....too lazy). 

I placed it in a recent thrift store frame I had on hand (and gave a quick coat of black spray paint)...wa-la, my new mantel!
Do you see the adorable black and white print on the left?  That's my new fav piece that I ordered from Canvas People with their amazing Christmas Special.  It's the 18x24, and then I mounted it on another thrift store frame that received some black spray paint as well.
Total cost $1.29.
 Total Naptimes to complete: 1

{What is on your calendar for this winter?  Have you displayed these upcoming events in a creative way?  Any New Years resolutions you are bound and determined to stick to this year?}
