Christmas Home Tour Part One

Christmas whole view living room

Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house…it’s quiet.

Finally I have some time to post my pics of the house.  Just now downloaded my copy of Lightroom {photo editing software} I bought for a great deal on Cyber Monday.  Even though it’s easier to use than Photoshop, there is still a bit of learning curve.  This means instead of spending all day figuring out how to edit all my photos to post on here, {which means I probably wouldn’t have anything to post until tomorrow} I decided to go ahead and post a few today and hopefully have the rest tomorrow for part two.  Once again I am posting them after Christmas.  Sigh…ho hum…I tried.  I thought I would have time to post them before, but it didn’t work out.  Oh well!

    Lovely as always. I look forward to part 2. Love you. Mom

  2. I’m curious to know how you did the chalk board. I went to the Dear Lillie website and saw the options. You mentioned Staples helped to. Is it really a chalkboard or just made to look like one? Everything turned out really nice.

    • Dana, it is a download made to look like a chalkboard. I took the image (via my jump drive) to Staples and they printed it out for me. You ask for the engineer size. I then taped it onto some foam core poster board. Thanks so much! 🙂
