How soon is too soon?

Team Thanksgiving or Team Christmas?

I’m sure you’ve noticed that you can find an article to confirm anything you want on the internet: aliens are real, chocolate is good for you, coffee is bad for you or really good for you… it’s all there. And now research shows people who decorate for Christmas early (before thanksgiving) are happier. Yes, folks, it’s all there, written by an expert! What do you think of all of this? Tell us below!

Wellesley and I got a few things out today, but nothing spectacular. I’m not sure how in-depth our decor will be this year. Last year we put out every decoration we had right after Halloween and I was sick of all of the clutter before Christmas Eve! I almost felt guilty being so excited to put it all away because I knew the kids & Beckett were loving it all still.

The Christmas Painting:

The Christmas print is one I painted of a car and a Christmas tree a few years ago. I love it because it has silver accents and it’s perfect classic addition to your Christmas decor!

You can shop this super affordable work of art with this link or by clicking on the shopping bag at the top of this website and scrolling down to it.

The Plaid Boyfriend Shirt:

My patch tartan boyfriend shirt (search #: 603411) is from Shein, you guessed it, Shein! I’m wearing a size medium. It’s sleeves are a little on the short side for me so I tend to roll them up, but I’m pretty tall (5’10”) so I think they should fit most people in length.

If you are looking for any holiday clothes or just an update to your closet, Shein has great options at AMAZING price points. Example, this top was $15! Plus my 15% off code: Q4TheClassy15 makes shopping even better! Valid through Dec 31st 2019!

So how soon is too soon to decorate for Christmas? I think we are all big girls and can make that decision for ourselves, but I have to say, a little reminder that Jesus came & holiday cheer never hurt anyone!

Wolfie:

Also, a special thank you to those of you who have been praying for Wolfie. I’ve heard from a few of you and we appreciate your continued prayers as we continue to monitor and make sure he’s ok! We are a lot more confident right now that he is fine, but it’s still one of those things in the back of our minds. Your prayers mean the world to us.

Speaking of Wolfie: spider-man (aka Beckett) came for a visit and Wolfie was so excited! The boys have been watching the 60s original spider-man cartoons lately and wolfie is obsessed!

Beckett had this spider-man suit custom made back when he was in college & we were dating. Not entirely sure why, but I think it has something to do with him buying an auction of over 10,000 comic books on eBay because it was “a good deal.” 😅😅😅😅 He would wear the suit while trying to sell the comics by the curb once school got out! 😆 #welaughnow Somehow he actually sold most of them, but we still have a half a dozen boxes that follow us like a puppy wherever we go. 🤪

If you or someone you know likes comics, please email TheClassyArtist@gmail.com and I’ll give you a deal! Just don’t tell Beckett 🤣

Honey, if you’re reading this, I’m kidding about selling your comics. Or am I?

the little things

Fun, fulfilling weeks are the best, aren’t they? As this week comes to a close, I was thinking back at all of the fun we’ve had and I feel so blessed in so many ways.

I got to paint another embryo for a family going through IVF, I’ll show you later. We also had a lot of fun family time that was renewing for the soul. From our snuggly movie nights watching Incredibles more times than I want to admit, to when 2 of my brothers came over for pizza with their girlfriends. But one of my favorite moments was when we had an impromptu photoshoot with the kids today. No tripod so we didn’t get a whole family photo, but these pictures are ones that we will cherish forever.

I’ll share more later too, but it’s late and we are going to bed.

Literally how they look at me every day.

Night!

we wish you a berry Christmas…


Hello folks! I cannot believe Christmas is so close! I was thinking about helping y’all with more gift guides because you know I love to do those, but then I was thinking that if you don’t know what you’re getting people by now you will probably be running to your nearest Target for a quick pickup or Prime things to your house!

Quick gift idea:

If you are looking for a super unique gift, feel free to browse my art on my shop page, I will get it to you ASAP so it’s there in time for Christmas or I’ll make you a personalized downloadable printout to show your person what he/she is getting! I even have a gift card option on there if you would like to go that route for a custom piece!

Another quick gift idea could be using my 20% off code 4theclassyartist20 on Shein for someone in your life who wants a little closet pick-me-up!

Like my top?! 

This berry color top is from Shein (of course) and it is so classic for fall & winter! It is just $15 and comes in a gorgeous mustard yellow and blush pink! Use code 4theclassyartist20 for 20% off of your purchase now through January 1st!

I ordered this top along with that gold and white blouse I posted about yesterday and it is such a great one  that I’ve worn it twice this week!! It’s a little cropped compared to yesterday’s blouse, but it’s long enough to cover the goods if you’re wearing high-waisted pants like mine. I also love that it’s lined so I don’t need to wear an undershirt.

I’ll be posting our Christmas card photo tomorrow so check back for that! Also, Wellesley is 3 months old today! 

Wellesley Bea, we love you so so much! And just look at how cute they are together!

Xo,

Kellie
