Sneaky Peek: A Very Kimba Christmas

November 16th, 2009

One of my most favorite bloggers, perhaps yours too, is Kimba from A Soft Place to Land.  She was kind enough to invite me guest post on her blog last summer.   

So when she sent me an advance copy of her new publication ‘A Very Kimba Christmas’, I was delighted to absorb every one of the 72 pages of her writing, photography, and grand ideas.

I adore Kimba’s chic and casual style, her originality, generosity, and her family friendly approach to decorating.  Here’s a glimpse of a few of the fabulous projects inside her ebook, with very detailed step-by-step tutorials.

Burlap table runner, jute Christmas trees, and a wreath that looks like something out of Frontgate (or better!) but with simple instructions on how to do it yourself for much less. 

Click on over right here to pick up your copy. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do.  And thank you Kimba for inspiring us all to feather our holiday nests with handmade seasonal touches !

Hi friends – this gal could sure use your vote in two contests.  The first is the Michael’s Handmade Holiday contest.  Right here is the link to my Manzanita Advent Tree – click on over and give me your highest rating if you would, pretty please.  Weekly winners receive gift cards, and the grand prize is a trip for two to NYC to see the Martha Stewart show.  Me wanna go !  Hey, what can I say, I dream big.


The next contest is the Divine Caroline ‘Love This Site’ awards.  My blog has recently been nominated in the Home & Food category.  I’d consider it a great honor if you’d click on over right here, register, and vote for this site.
