  3. Merry Christmas to you too, Francesca! Your new camera looks incredible. Nice pictures.

  4. We have that same baby's first Christmas ornament hanging on our tree right now! My parent's got for me on, well, my first Christmas. ;) My favorite gift is probably my Prismacolor art markers, or little black knit cap. :)

  5. soo exciting! I love the ones of the Christmas tree, and the bows, and your hair, and the hair clip bokeh :)
    also, awesome socks & Santa hat :)

    I spy the tissue box that inspired your next design!

    so, is it a boy or a girl?

  6. OH MY!!!! yesss!

    tissue box!!! I so recognized that one! ;)

    are we twin sisters or something? my hair is curly right now. my hair is usually this stinkin' wavy curly straight frizzy mess that I started curling my hair every night before I go to bed. I use sponge, because my hair is so thick. but still. love your hair! it's so cute!! ;)

    I got some money this year, saving up for my Nikon D5100(:
