On the Second Day of Crafting: The Living Room

Today I decided to focus on the room we use the most. Our coffee table isn't exactly a table; it's actually four ottomans with storage compartments and tops that flip over to make little square trays. I made a set of square placemats to line and protect the trays with some of my favorite Elvis prints, but today they've been replaced with patchwork placemats in some of the same beautiful Christmas prints I used for the advent calendar. Add some pinked-edged coasters for our hot cocoa and a festive throw pillow and our living room is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.Can you tell it was dark outside again when I took these pictures? I really need to start my crafting in the morning.It's finally starting to feel like Christmastime in the Sugar and Snails household. Believe it or not, I'm actually looking forward to seeing some snow soon. Tomorrow I'll be making gifts for the Small One while she is at school. Hopefully I'll be able to finish at least most of them in 4 hours.

By the way, did you know that Swiss Miss now makes a dark chocolate hot cocoa mix? Yum yum yum.
