courtneysnowden I imagine it's a little hard to have a birthday on the 23rd of Dec. Christmas festivities are in full swing and life is Busy with a capital B. He tells us not to fuss over him and to definitely not buy him presents. But we're plugging our ears, singing na na na na, and pretending we can't hear. We may be on our way to a Christmas party, but secretly I'm really celebrating him. Happy Happy birthday to my best guy, my husband, their daddy, our Will Tom. 5d

courtneysnowden S is for Snowden...and Sibley...and Smith...and SANTA!!! I was totally inspired by @marthastewart's festive monogram wreath, just added a little vintage kitsch to the mix #marthastewartcrafts #ABMholidayspirit 1w
  •   watkinsteam And Sara! Can I have it when you decide to top it with something even better in the next few months. 1w
  •   kristinamcpherson So cute!, you kill me with Christmas goodness! 1w
  •   tamiv That wreath is fabulous! 1w
  •   mandihong Absolutely fabulous!! 1w
  •   pollydove SOOOO cute! What a great idea!!! Did you use supa strong, extra powered, bionic glue so the ornies don't fall off?!! 7d
  •   courtneysnowden @pollydove I actually wired them on because hot glue expands and contracts with weather, so you can't really use it on anything outdoors. Yeah, figured that out the hard way after 20+ fallen, shattered ornaments on a Valentine's wreath I made years ago! Also on the @marthastewart tutorial she wired then on and it reminded me of my last debacle 7d
  •   sayyesblog Love it 6d

courtneysnowden Sometimes when you and your girl set out to make an "Ugly Christmas Sweater," it kinda morphs into a supa dupa "Cute Christmas Sweater." You know...in a gaudy, grannie-ish sorta way. #ABMholidayspirit #vintagechristmas 1w

I have a 21 year old. I-have-a-21-year-old. It's hard to even put into words how I'm feeling. It kinda seems like yesterday that the nurse was placing my teeny tiny swaddled firstborn into my arms. I looked down at my boy, felt his weight against my heart and knew, irrevocably, that I would go to the ends of the earth for him. In that instant, my world changed forevermore. He may "legally" be an adult now, but he'll always, always, always be my baby boy (and homemade signs from your super excited littlest brother are pretty much the cutest thing ever)

courtneysnowden These two crazies said "Mom, our room feels way too summery, we need to redo it for winter." Wait what??? Redecorating with each new season? Um yeah...soooo not happening baby girls. We added some Christmas cheer and hopefully that will hold off their hgtv makeover dreams for a bit. I fear I've created little DIY monsters #heynataliejeanxmastrees 2w

courtneysnowden Last week I had a conversation over lunch with my sisters @lesnels8 @pollydove and Spring about how beautiful "natural" holiday decorating is. Fresh greens, boughs of holly, slices of wood and the smell of pine wafting through the house. We all said maybe we'd decorate like that this year. Then I started opening up my boxes and all this vintage, kitschy, colorful goodness was staring back at me and I was reminded that LOTS OF STUFF is my holiday decorating jam.... 3w

courtneysnowden While we were in the middle of a super stressful move a few years ago, I sorta lost my mind and threw our tree away. With 3 birthdays in the month of December, ain't nobody got extra money for a new tree, what the heck was I thinking? Then we stumbled across this sparse little thing at Walmart...5 feet of snowy white goodness for $29.99 and we brought her home. The kids call her "BABY" because they think she's so tiny. 3 years later, she's still our main girl. Hoisted up on a table, donned with a shiny tree topper and dressed in a bajillion candy coated ornies, I'd say she cleans up pretty well. #nobodyputsBABYinacorner #exceptwhenBABYisatree 3w

courtneysnowden I brought down a few more things to @beehivebazaar because my space was looking empty and quite pathetic (although the empty part is a really good thing, thanks so much for supporting me my loves! ) The doors are open tonight until 10...date night to the craft show is your mans dream come true right? And tomorrow 10-8pm. So many cool things made by even cooler people. Go get your holiday shoppin on!!!! 3w
  •   mintedowl Do you have any trees left? I bought up the last of your pink ones on Thursday, I need more of all colors!! They are so cute!! Or any of those amazing pink houses? 3w
  •   allstripesallthetime Do you have more antlers and houses? Maybe it's just easier to ask the name of your etsy shop? @courtneysnowden 3w
  •   courtneysnowden @mintedowl @allstripesallthetime @deb_cj @reachingforbalance @lesleefalk I'll be putting a few things in my neglected etsy shop tomorrow. I'll gram something as a little reminder 3w
  •   reachingforbalance @courtneysnowden I so would love - I literally have not begun Christmas shopping - not one gift yet - unless we could do a little more tweeking those as princess, monster truck, dr. Martins, and Paul Pogba etc....Haha - when I am done though i will check back on your etsy!! Thank you for checking back! 3w
  •   mintedowl What's the name of your etsy shop? 2w
  •   courtneysnowden @mintedowl I had every intention of making lots more houses but I fear it's not going to happen. Sooo much holiday stuff going on and we still have 2 more Dec. birthdays to go! I can make you a pink house if you still want one and I did dye a bunch more trees yesterday. I'm going to list those here on IG in an hour or so but I wanted to give you a head start! Let me know. 2w
  •   courtneysnowden @allstripesallthetime I have one more set of red/gold antlers $38 and one more big grey w/ red door house $60. I could make you a custom one if you want. I was going to make a bunch more but as I'm sure you can relate, Dec. is getting crazier by the day. Just let me know if you still want anything I can ship it out ASAP! 2w
  •   courtneysnowden @deb_cj I'm going to list some more trees right here on IG in a little bit 2w

courtneysnowden After weeks of asking "Is it December 1st yet? When is it December 1st? How long is it until December 1st?" our favorites from the North Pole have fiiiiinally arrived...and Smith is in seventh heaven. They had a surprise for us too...Little Liam Lars...because you know, it's the natural progression of things. 4w
