Merry Christmas! It's a Wrap! Our Christmas Wishes for 2015 0
Have you made your list and checked it twice yet? Just for fun, we asked the My Wonderful Walls team what is on their Christmas wish lists this year. Here’s what they are hoping is under the tree:
Michael would like world peace and a 3D scanner.
Stephanie is hoping to receive season passes to Dollywood and new wine glasses.
Hollie would like an Icelandic pony in a sweater.
Cassie is hoping for a clean house and a massage.
Zane would like a forest full of Truffala trees and a 30 meter telescope.
Tara is hoping for a beach vacation and a new jumbo coffee mug.
Well you can tell we have some kids at heart on our team here and definitely some hard working moms and dads! Though Christmas is for children, maybe Santa will leave a little something nice for each of us this year. Of course, one of our greatest gifts is being able to help our customers make their homes a little brighter and gift giving a little easier! If you shopped for the holidays (or any time) with us this year, thank you! We love having you as a part of our My Wonderful Walls family and hope to be able to provide you with beautiful wall décor and home accents for many years to come.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

‘Tis the Season to Be Giving! Top 5 Reasons Why ColorMe Decals Make the Perfect Gift for Everyone on Your Holiday List: 4As part of the growing adult coloring trend as well as a great coloring activity for kids, ColorMe Decals make a great gift for people of all ages! As you well know, it’s that time of year again, and if you’re anything like me, you realize, “OMG! It’s already November and I haven’t done ANY Christmas shopping!” But, have no fear, ColorMe Decals are here! Here are the top 5 reasons why ColorMe Decals make the perfect gift for everyone on your list:
1). Coloring is just plain fun! Whatever your age, whatever your gender, coloring is just plain fun for everyone! Whether you’re looking for some alone time to relax and meditate, or know someone who does, ColorMe Decals are a perfect way to spend some enjoyable creative time solo. They also make a great party activity for adults and kids alike and are fun way to socialize with friends. So, whether you’re young in years or young at heart, ColorMe Decals make a great gift for everyone, bringing peace and happiness to any occasion.
2). ColorMe Decals are unique! Whatever you do, don’t buy another last-minute scarf, or matching hat and gloves to gift this Christmas! I don’t know about you, but I’ve got enough of these to last a thousand winters! Give a gift that’s distinct and unique. Unlike coloring books or designs printed on paper, ColorMe Decals are high quality, durable decals you can color and use for stunning home decor, like this nature inspired branching out mandala, that will last for years to come. And, because of the variety of materials you can use with ColorMe Decals, each design will be a unique, one-of-a-kind gift every time.
3). Gets the kids away from electronics! We’re all guilty of allowing our kids too much screen time. Whether it’s the computer, their ipad, video games, or good ole fashioned television, kids nowadays spend more time indoors gazing at screens than they do outdoors gazing at stars. So what form of entertainment can we offer them that trumps all that? ColorMe Decals! Because ColorMe Decals are high quality stickers you can color or paint, your kids will get swept up in the process of creating their own decor for their bedroom, locker at school, or laptop. They’ll get so absorbed in the creative flow of choosing their own colors and materials, they won’t even miss their electronics, at least until their done. So don’t reiterate the use of electronics this Christmas by getting your kids a bunch of new video games, a new ipad, or a television for their room. Do yourself, and your kids a favor by getting them a quiet, meditative activity that inspires their imaginations and ignites their creativity.
4). ColorMe Decals make a wonderful keepsake! Every holiday season, we search high and low for the perfect gift, a gift that will remind our loved ones how much we cherish them. ColorMe Decals make the ideal keepsake because they are so unique and engaging. When you think about it, what is more appealing than your loved one coloring or painting a design hand picked by you. Or better yet, a loved one receiving a ColorMe decal colored by you or your child. I couldn’t imagine grandma getting anything better. And once they’ve finished coloring, your loved one can display their one-of-a-kind masterpiece virtually anywhere: in their home, office, on their locker at school, and even on their laptop. Wherever they choose to put it on display, it will remind them of you and the awesome memories they made while coloring. It’s a gift they will treasure for a lifetime.
5). It’s a high quality gift at an unbeatable price! While Adult Coloring Books and free downloadable coloring images are all the craze, there really aren’t a whole lot of ways for folks to display their beautiful masterpieces when finished coloring. Their ambitious efforts just hide in a coloring book, or get easily torn while displayed around the house. Bummer. But how about a coloring page that also works as a decal? Now we’re talkin’! Because ColorMe Decals come in a variety of sizes and designs, like this beautiful butterfly mandala, there’s something for everyone, no matter your budget. Each design is handmade to order and printed on an eco-friendly, high quality canvas-like material that can stick to virtually any flat surface, so they’re never lost! They’re also repositionable, which means you have the option of moving them from room to room. And since they work with a wide range of artistic media, such as; crayons, colored pencils, markers, and paints, you’re free to focus on coloring or painting inside the lines while thinking outside the box! So, don’t spend your hard earned moola on an expensive gift that might get lost, forgotten, or hide away in a book. Give a unique, high quality gift that inspires togetherness, relaxation, individuality and creativity. Gift a ColorMe Decal. Your friends, loved ones, and wallet will thank you for it!
Now that you know the top 5 reasons why ColorMe Decals make the perfect gift for everyone on your Christmas list, don’t put yourself through fighting the holiday traffic, bah humbug shoppers, and waiting until the last minute! Order easily and quickly online today a treasured gift that will last a lifetime!

DIY Colorful Christmas Table Décor Ideas 7
This time of year many of us tend to use a lot of red and green in our home decorating with maybe a touch of silver and gold thrown in. But you can think outside the box when creating your Christmas table and use different color themes to create a unique tablescape. We’ve got some of the best DIY Christmas table decorating ideas we found around the web to share with you.
How about a blue and white Christmas table to match the shimmering icicles outside? This do it yourself table centerpiece from All You Magazine and matching place settings looks amazing but won’t break your bank.
If you like bringing a touch of the outdoors in, check out this lovely green and brown tablescape from Not Just a Housewife using different shades of green and some handcrafted candlesticks. Notice the burlap napkin rings with gift tags doubling as name tags for the place settings. You could definitely re-create this look at home.
Go glam with silver, gold and white mini ornaments glued to a Styrofoam ball and inserted into a pot or vase to create a holiday topiary. Add a silver or gold ribbon and you’ve got something chic for Christmas Eve. This was originally created for New Year’s Eve by Ashley at Simply Designing but we think it works great for Christmas too.
We are loving the Aqua and Mint Tablescape created by Krista at the Happy Housie. She’s using a blue curtain panel as a tablecloth and has paired some opaque glass painted Christmas ornaments with cedar cuttings from her yard for each place setting. She’s even got a DIY tutorial on creating those DIY yarn and feather trees for her centerpiece. So many ways you could make those work as part of your décor.
For a bright and merry centerpiece, how about using some jewel toned glassware or candle holders and filling them with brightly colored Christmas ornaments of varying shapes and sizes? Image from digsdigs.com.
Or how about going au naturel with these lovely DIY Burlap Trees we found on Tater Tots and Jello? Add some garland and ornaments at the bottom and arrange these down the middle of your dining table or across your mantle. We think they are great in the brown but you could also spray paint these in any color you chose. Perfect, economical decoration if you’re struggling for something different on your dinner table this Christmas!
Or if you want to go red and white what about something like these DIY Candy Cane Candlesticks from The Mother Huddle for your table? Inexpensive and easy to create, you could have these on your table tomorrow!
If you’re feeling the decorating crunch before your company arrives for the holidays, hopefully some of these ideas have inspired you to create something unique for your table. For more ideas check out our Colorful Christmas board on Pinterest. How do you add color to your home for the holidays?
