Merry Merry Christmas from BeColorful.
Hopefully most of you are too busy enjoying family and friends or just winding down from all the fun to read this tonight but in the next couple of days I would like to think that you will be regrouping and ready to add some of your most recent inspirations here.
I have actually written most of this ahead of time and will post it Sunday night as is but I hope to come back and add a few comments when time allows.
I do want to highlight a few of last weeks links with at least some pictures for now.
I do hope that you will have time in the days ahead to visit them because they are all either tempting or visionary.
So without further adieu, here we go..
I know it is too late for this year but I will be pinning some of these great holiday ideas on to my Holiday Pinterest Board for next year like this gingerbread man wreath

and here is one you will want to keep for next year because in about eleven months we will be decorating all over again and this post from Ciao Newport Beach is chalk full of ideas for your bannister.
Pin your hearts out.
January is a month here in the midwest where we kind of hunker down and tuck in... at least if it ever snows we will. So far, nothing and this girl is not complaining. It is also the time of year where I actually seem to do more cooking and I thought this recipe sounded so perfect for a cold winter's night.

I also liked this baked egg roll recipe from
because we are probably all resolving to try and eat healthier. Baked has to be better than fried right?
The chalkboard tray and hot chocolate station also seemed like a timely idea.
It wouldn't be a Motivated Monday without some home decor ideas and I loved this chevron tray project
With just some repurposing and garage sale finds she took this guest room from this -
to this. Be sure and stop by her blog to see all of the great photos and to read about her decorating process.
