Merry Christmas and CoffeeShop Blog Backgrounds Set 1!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all! Regardless of what you celebrate this month, I hope you are spending time with loved ones, eating delicious foods, and perhaps even thrilling little ones with some amazing creative gifts. Christmas is big in our family. Like Thanksgiving,we love all holidays that include home-cooked meals, family and friends, and great conversation.

However, if you are taking it easy this year and have a few free minutes and stopped in here, I wanted to give you a little freebie. I put together this set of blog backgrounds that are 2000px by 1250px. I used the new pattern set from Pixels & Icecream. If you don't know how to add backgrounds to your blog, just read this post. And if you want to make your blog wider (1000px anyone???), check out this post.
