I love this time of year. I look forward to relishing the time I take to write Christmas cards and letters to friends near and far. It's also a wonderful time to write down all of those customs and traditions that make your family your family. Keeping a journal is a priceless way to record your family memories.
I explore the joy of writing such notes, cards and journals in my latest blog for Hooker Furniture. I hope it inspires you in your own creative writing as you enjoy your time with family friends.
It's time to get ready for the holidays! And in the spirit of the season I've posted a new blog for Hooker Furniture aboutfurniture with secret Santa storage. There are some great ideas about how to keep your holiday gifts secret and safe from curious eyes along with some beautiful images that I hope will inspire your gift-wrapping this year.
It's pumpkin season! And in the spirit of that season, enjoy my most recent blog for Hooker Furniture Corporation, Tasteful and Tasty: Pumpkin in Your Home. There are some great decorating ideas as well as a couple of terrific recipes to make the season flavorful.
A change of seasons often inspires a change in our home decor. I'm working on a summer series for Hooker Furniture called How to Make Your Home Better Without Renovating. This series will focus on how to make some nice adjustments to style without having to commit to the large-scale investments involved in construction renovations.
