Yep, that's how I'm starting this blog post because I have no idea where to begin. Lots of fun stuff is going on around here and will be for a while so I really felt I wanted to start blogging again, if only for myself and my family this time..:)
My plan is to no longer post tutorials to things I make or cook unless it's something original. Lately I've been experimenting with making cakes from scratch and decorating sugar cookies. I'm finding youtube and blogs to be invaluable! It's like taking private lessons. So if I do post a picture of something I've made I'm just going to link what I've done to whom ever taught me or gave me the inspiration and you can take it from there!
Well, that's it for my first "back at it" blog post. Exciting I know! I'll post more when I start working on Catherine's "baby shower" (yep, my baby girl is expecting her first child) and of course I would like to document much of it here. And then there is the upcoming Disney Cruise...more on that to come..;)

To bad all of this didn't come to the forefront just a bit earlier. Since early January, soon after my mother took a fall in which she broke her wrist, I've been working on making her home safe for her to continue to live in. Aging in place is the popular name for it right now. In any case, I'm nearly finished and sadly didn't document the process. The point is, it would have made a great blog post. Everything from making a home safe for an elderly parent living alone, to organizing, getting rid of hot spots (paper piles...;) to even decorating! Just this past weekend I made her a memo/calendar board just because I couldn't find anything that suited our needs. Heck, I even got to use spray paint! But alas, no pictures of that little project either.
Anyway, long story short...it's time for me to decide if "The Re-Fluffed Nest" will go on...or slowly ride off into the sunset of retired blogs. I'm going to give it some serious thought over the next week or so. I do have another little project I'm starting at moms soon. It has to do with inlaying a mosaic tile into her back splash where a hole from an old removed vent was removed many moons ago. Perhaps doing something I've never done could end up being worthy of sharing!

I have a Christmas cookie post to share with you, but gosh darn I'm just so busy and still haven't gotten the photos off my camera. But my blogging friend Amber is having a wonderful Christmas giveaway on her blog that will be ending soon, so I wanted to send out a quick post about that! I love the pillows that she is giving away and thought about a few of my readers as well when I saw them! So if you're interested, hop on over there and take a quick peek!
The picture is a link...;)
The winner will be chosen Christmas morning, so don't dawdle! (Sorry I'm so late sharing this info with you)

The birds are just going wacky and I just had to catch some of them in action! All of these photos were taken from inside because gosh darn it, it's COLD out there!
Hope you all are having a most joyous day, whether you have some of the white stuff or not!

I love Christmas time and all the shiny things to go along with the love you can feel in the air! I also really enjoy sharing with you my little place in the world, and how it looks and changes with each season. Now all I need is some snow! Can you hear my Santa?
