Friday Favorites - December 6, 2013

The weather is having a good laugh at me this Friday. Yesterday I was a guest on an episode of The Paperclipping Rountable, and in the midst of sharing some of our favorite Christmas memories, I happened to mention that at that time it was 73 degrees in my little part of the world. That was less than 24 hours ago, and as I type the temperature outside is a balmy 39 degrees, complete with heavy rain and cold wind. Such is winter in Alabama!

This week's episode is a great listen if you're in need of some Christmas story inspiration- my fellow panelists Shimelle Laine and Debbie Hodge had some hilarious ones to share! You can listen to the entire episode here.

This week's roundup includes quite a few Christmas crafts, and next week's will be my annual post of some of my favorite Christmas journals that I've seen so far this year. Enjoy!
