Welcome to Our Sugar Kissed Christmas

Welcome to our home, friends.
Lindsey and I would like to welcome you to our Sugar Kissed Christmas.


We wanted to share our style with you for a vintage inspired wonderland. We've created our theme around the color scheme of pink and red. We feel these colors evoke a feeling of a vintage, retro Christmas. We have designed and crafted several decorations that we want to share with you over the next few weeks until Christmas. We will be sharing vintage images, tutorials, and lots of pictures to help you if you would like to create some of these crafts for your own home and gift giving.



I have always thought that crafting supplies are, in themselves, beautiful. I came up with the idea of making old fashioned button cards. I went through my collection of postcards and found this one that lent itself to our color scheme. Lindsey scanned the image, printed them up in the size needed and I sewed on the buttons. I think they turned out very pretty.


Lindsey has made Christmas journals in two different sizes. I hope that you will enjoy making one also, as they are so helpful during this time of year to record your shopping and gift giving ideas. She has also created a wall hanging and tags along with a few surprises up her sleeve.



We hope that you will join us daily to share in our love of Christmas and our desire to share some Christmas joy. We took great pleasure in creating our 'Sugar Kissed Christmas' button. We would like to invite you to add it to your sidebar and help spread the spirit of a sugar kissed Christmas!


See you tomorrow for our first project and a fun giveaway! Twyla and Lindsey

I wouldn't usually think of pink for Christmas but mixing it with red is a really nice idea and it looks really festive. I love the button cards... and everthing else for that matter!

Oh my goodness...these photos just make me happy. What a beautiful job you did on the projects AND the photo shoot.
I was also very inspired by the story of your Grandmother, Twyla. What an amazing legacy of hope and courage she left for her family.
Happy belated birthday to Lindsey. I loved seeing all the photos. And what a treasure you received...original doll in the original package. Lucky girl. : )

Dear Twyla, A very personal thank you for the "goodies" you included with Lindsey's beautiful tags. (I have left my thank you on her paper blog) I am typing in my slippers at this very moment! EAK! You know how I love your cloths - the perfect gift for me. However, I will be including payment when I send your tags to you - not another word! I am so thankful to know you and know about the beautiful things that you create. The pleasure is all mine! Elizabeth

Holly- Girls At Heart said...

I'm back for another ppek at your sugar kissed Christmas!! I'm glad you didn't tell me Twyla because I love surprises.

I love how you added the buttons to the card, Twyla! It adds a touch of cute to the pretty. And I've got to learn how to add lettering to images the way Lindsey did. I'm still learning how to use paint and i always forget what I learn! Ha!

So is that a felt circles garland? So cute- all of it- everything! I showed the pics to Micah and he pointed out the cutie pie cards and said, "Aren't those your Christmas cards, mom?" ☺

I can't wait until tomorrow! I'll spread the word! LOVE you sweet girls! ♥

Thanks so much for your visit, Twyla--I always love seeing your name and your kind comments!

Everytime I see the little pink cottage in your header my heart just skips a beat! If you ever feel like sharing the image with me, I would LOVE to make something with it!

Have a wonderful evening!

All I can say is that your blog is just sweet as sweet can be. It's like going to a vintage candy factory and being so overwhelmed by the taste, smells and sights.
