What could be better than a letter from Santa Claus himself? I’ll tell you what. A letter and signed photos of Santa and Rudolph. This year we signed H up for the package from Santa, and after having some issues with the post office we finally got her package!
In the package, delivered directly from the North Pole, came an official nice list certificate signed by Santa, Rudolph, and Chief Elf Bernard Honeytree. There was also a letter personalized just for her that had details that only Santa would know about her. She also received an autographed photo of Santa and a signed photo of Rudolph when he was a baby reindeer.
Along with our order, she also got a video call and a phone call from Santa (and Mrs. Claus).
The quality of this package is amazing as well. The paper is thick and the H can keep the photos are glossy and she can keep them for as long as she wants.
I also want to point out that the people from Package from Santa are awesome. We didn’t receive our package, so a quick contact with the folks there and they sent us another package without hesitation.
This will be something that we continue to do throughout the years. I absolutely loved seeing H’s face light up when she got the package. Yall should check out Packagefromsanta.com next year for a package for your kids. You’ll be glad that you did!
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas. Take the time to enjoy your little ones and family!
This is year is my family’s first Christmas (with the exception of the year H was born), that we are spending Christmas at our home. H is four this year, so she is all about Santa and she understands he will be visiting her house this year and not one of her grandparents. This idea is so exciting to her!
Since we are staying home this year, I thought it would be the perfect time to start a new tradition with PackageFromSanta.com. Package From Santa is the only memory service that really does it ALL. They include personalized letters, packages, calls AND videos from Santa.
I am so excited to see H’s face light up with pure wonder and amazement when she gets her personalized letter from Santa. However, this isn’t just any letter from Santa, it’s a complete experience. It’s joy, wonder, memories, and happiness in a box. The letter is customized by theme and with details added that only Santa would know!
Each and every package comes with a FREE personalized call AND video from Santa. These can be scheduled at any time. I think that this an awesome detail, because we all have our own lives and schedules and sometimes “one size fits all” just doesn’t work.

Leave me a comment about your family traditions for the holiday!
Can you believe that it is December already?! This year has really flown by. Christmas is just a few weeks away! Hopefully, I’ll get all my shopping and preparation done soon. This year when my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas I drew a blank. Typically, I’ve already found something on Pinterest that I want him to get me. Finally, after several weeks of thinking, I decided that I wanted to fix up my office space upstairs. Starting with a new desk.
My old desk wasn’t even a desk. It was a folding table that we got super cheap at home depot. I won’t lie, I was super happy to get the table when we originally purchased it because at the time my “office” had been in our laundry room (what an office space right?!). The second we got home from getting the table I rushed it upstairs to the extra room and put my things on it. I set it up under the window so that I could look out into our backyard and neighborhood. I could barely contain my excitement. It didn’t take long for the excitement of my new “desk” to wear off.
The table wasn’t a smooth surface, all the notes that I would jot down looked like I had the jitters. When I tried to paint shirts the rough surface of the table would cause the paint to look uneven. All in all, I just started to feel very unprofessional sitting at what was essentially a beer pong table. For a while, I even stopped going in my office and even stopped working. It was hard to feel creative and work in a place that wasn’t conducive to work.
I searched for what felt like forever for office ideas, more specifically desk ideas. I have a Pinterest board full of office spaces. Finally, I came across the Linnmon line from Ikea. Oh, boy, do I love love LOVE Ikea! This line is great because you can design your space. I wanted something that would hold my Cricut (and supplies), a sewing machine (once it’s purchased), my laptop, and a place to work on my projects. In addition to this, I wanted to have my laptop in a separate area of the desk (I was always worried about getting paint and glitter on my computer at my other desk).
I decided that I would go with two Linnmon table tops and two Alex drawer units (Exact items will be linked below). The table/desk that my computer sits on is about 47 inches. I put one of the Alex drawers under one side and put two Adils legs on the other side.
This the absolute perfect size for me to work on my computer, use my planner, pay bills, etc. without feeling cluttered and messy. The area where I decided to place my Cricut, supplies and future sewing machine is about 78 inches long. I used two Adils legs and the Alex drawer unit under it just as I did the desk with my computer. I pushed the two desks together to make one big L-shaped desk.
Now I no longer sit directly under the window, but the placement of the desks still allows me to look outside. It’s especially great during this time of year with all the Christmas decorations throughout the neighborhood.
My office isn’t complete yet, I still want to add a few pictures and other items. And I am still in the process of buying some desk organization, but I love the space so much that I just couldn’t wait to share it with yall. Once I complete the area I plan to make an update about it.

We woke up yesterday morning to a package on our front porch. H was excited to see that it was the Smitco Diary with a lock and key.
I love that it’s a pink girly theme, as H is quite the girly girl. Her favorite color is pink and she’s all about the frilly girl things!
The other thing I like about this diary, was that the packaging was super easy to open and I was able to get the diary out with very minimal effort. I would think an older child would be able to do it on their own.
Most diaries that I’ve seen with a lock and key have super small keys that are usually lost within minutes of H getting her hands on them. Not the case with this Smitco Diary. The keys are bigger and much easier to keep track of. Again, if your daughter is older you may not have the lost key problem.
The diary has 300 lined pages with a space for the date for girls to write all their secrets. You know, which member of that boy band they dream to marry, which boy at school is cute or how they don’t like their math teacher Mr. Jones because he gives too much homework (and since it locks, girls never have to worry about their pesky siblings trying to read their deepest secrets). H is still little so I don’t have to worry about boys or math homework for a little while. 😉
I’m super pleased with the quality of this diary. The pages are of notebook quality. The cover and spine are put together rather nicely. This is another plus in my book because it means it’ll hold up against my destructive kiddo. Sturdiness is an important quality in products for H these days.
Overall, H is a little too young to truly understand a diary and what it’s meant for, but she’s been using it and pretending to go to school and pretending to write stories. I think this is a perfect diary for a tween girl and it’s definitely going to keep all her secrets safe. If you want to pick one up for your girl or as a gift for someone else you can do that by clicking here. They’ve got several to choose from, including a mermaid themed diary!
