"Rejoice always, pray continually,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18


  1. I haven't been able to find the Hallmark Drama channel to watch Christmas Cookie Matchup. Hallmark website says it's on the Pluto channel, which I get, but I can't find the program. Any help for me? Thanks.

    1. Hello artsgirl! I searched through Pluto TV's channels and I, too, do not see Hallmark Drama. Can you contact them by phone or social media and ask?

      I don't have it, personally, but frndlytv.com (a streaming service) offers all three Hallmark channels.

      Also... Maybe you can try and search through Hallmark's *channel locator* to see if Hallmark Drama is offered somewhere else for you.

      Hallmark Drama Channel Locator:

      Hope this information helps! :)

    2. I watched Christmas Cookie Matchup on Hallmark site: Episode 1

      I don’t see Andrea Brooks but with 6 contestants

      Erin Krakow
      Kevin McGarry
      Paul Greene
      Pascals Hutton
      Chris McNally
      Kavan Smith

    3. Keep watching! Andrea Brooks appears in episode 2 - as a special assistant!

      By the way, she's expecting and looks radiant! :)


  2. Hallmark ornaments exhibit at Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation Museum of American Innovation

    Never underestimate the power of a Hallmark Keepsake ornament, particularly if there's a long line to meet Santa.

    "When my daughter was really little, like, 2 and 3 and 4 years old, the way we would convince her to get her Christmas picture at the mall is we would promise her she could get a Hallmark ornament afterwards," says Donna Braden.

    Like Santa's arrival at a Thanksgiving parade or FM radio stations that play carols 24/7 in early November, browsing an array of Hallmark Keepsake ornaments has become a ritual of American life.

    It also might become the next big holiday tradition in Detroit, thanks to the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.

    Starting Monday and lasting through the holidays, the Dearborn museum will be displaying 110 samples of a huge, new collection of Hallmark Keepsake ornaments acquired from a Hallmark retailer in the Midwest.

    There are 6,600 ornaments altogether. And next year, the Henry Ford Museum wants to begin showing all of them on a seasonal basis.

    Can you say buses full of Hallmark fans?

    The ornaments date from 1973 — the debut year for the Keepsake line — to 2009. They originally belonged to a family-owned Hallmark store, the Party Shop, in Indiana that opened in 1978.

    When the owners decided to retire, the museum was approached about becoming a possible new home for objects that packed much in terms of meaning — and drew bus tours to the rural Indiana site, which doubled as an ornament museum.

    Another sign of culture shifts? As the ornament franchise grew, a variety of movies and TV series, fictional characters and sports figures became part of the mix. By the 1990s, pop-culture touchstones were firmly a part of the Keepsake experience, according to Braden.

    Like miniature time capsules, the collection traces the history of modern Disney movies, "Star Wars" reboots and revivals, the "Harry Potter" craze, nostalgia for TV shows like "Star Trek," and appreciation for classic cars and Barbie dolls, among other themes.

    "This year, for 'Toy Story 4,' the first ornament we bought was Forky," says Braden.

    Of course, Hallmark is just as well-known for its holiday cards and its Hallmark cable channel, which began its 2019 Countdown to Christmas holiday-themed programming on Oct. 25.

    Yet unlike cards and TV movies, ornaments are carefully stored and unwrapped each year. They sometimes capture a moment in time or commemorate a wedding, birth or other occasion.

    Braden, a senior curator/curator of public life for Henry Ford Museum, is a Keepsake ornament fan herself who also sees the decorations from the perspective of both marketing and societal tradition.

    They've made it not just a big part of their business, but a big part of our culture," says Braden of Hallmark's idea, which started in 1973 with a low-key six glass balls and 12 yarn figures
    and has since spawned 8,400 different Keepsake Ornaments, along with a collectors club, special buying events and print and online Dream Books of what's available each year

    Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation at The Henry Ford
    Hallmark ornaments display starts Monday

    9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., open seven days a week

    20900 Oakwood Blvd., Dearborn


    $24 general admission, $22 seniors (62 and older), $18 youths (5 to 11), free to children 4 and under.

    1. Thank you for sharing this article. This sounds like such a fun place to visit and see all of these Hallmark ornaments from 1973 to 2009. When it comes to Christmas, ornaments are one of my favorite things! They can represent so many precious memories!

      I hope many are able to visit the Museum and see this incredible collection!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you Net and all here! I can't believe it's happening this week. I'll be cooking non-stop at my Mother's house on Wednesday & early Thursday. It's a lot of work, but it's nice to go home and be with the family.

    1. Happy Thanksgiving Week to you, too, Anna! Plus, happy cooking to you and your Mother as you prepare your Thanksgiving dinner! Enjoy your special time together! I'll be doing the same with my Momma and Sister - as we prepare the meal for our family!

      Thanksgiving Blessings to You & Yours! :)

    2. Happy Thanksgiving all. I'll also be going over to my Mom's tonight (Tuesday) to help her set up the Thanksgiving Table. I like those set up days. Kind of the fun before the fun. The anticipation thing that you all know I like. Then on Thanksgiving morning I will go over about 9am and help her put the Turkey in the oven and do other prep stuff and watch the Macy's Day Thanksgiving parade at same time. Something about that parade is so traditional and so comforting. I always wanted to go to New York City to see that parade live and then stay until they lit the Christmas Tree the week later...Never made it though.

    3. That sounds like such a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving, Jim! Hope you enjoyed eating lots of goodies and aren't too stuffed today! I certainly look forward to when the last dish is set on the table and we can finally pray together, give thanks and eat!

      I know just what you mean about the Macy's Day Thanksgiving parade! It would be fun to see in person, if only I could zap there and zap back home in time for Thanksgiving dinner - I would totally do it! Because there's no place like home when it comes to Thanksgiving!!! :)

  4. Joyce in CarolinaMonday, November 25, 2019


    1. Oh, I hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving, too, Joyce! I know some families are still gathering today and over the weekend.

      I'm so grateful our country sets aside this time to be with loved ones and be grateful for all we have.

      I'm so thankful for Your friendship and All who visit here! Blessings to You!!! :)

  5. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!! Net, a special Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and may God bless you dearly for all the lives you have enriched through your inspiring site!! May He bring you love, joy, peace especially throughout this busy week!!

    1. A Very Happy Thanksgiving to You, too, Linda! What a precious time to give Thanks to our Lord for all of His incredible gifts He has given and continues to give to us - each and every day! Thank you for being such a dear friend here to me and to others who visit here, too! :)

      Every blessing to you, as well! I'm so thankful for your continued friendship! God bless you!!!

  6. Julia Crawley’s Grandma makes Buche de Noel (Yule Log Cake) in Check Inn Christmas

  7. Hallmark Channel float on Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

  8. New York’s iconic Plaza Hotel is the setting for Christmas at the Plaza. Jessica (Elizabeth Henstridge) is an archival historian whose current relationship is going nowhere fast. When she’s commissioned to help create an exhibition honoring the hotel’s history, she ends up working with Nick (Ryan Paevey), a decorator who’s in charge of transforming the Plaza into a Christmas wonderland. As she finds herself falling for Nick, Jessica has to decide on her romantic priorities.
    Peavey loves being a part of the Hallmark family. “I think what I like best about, and what keeps me coming back to work in the Hallmark world is similar to what keeps viewers coming back…of all of the places to go to make believe in TV, there has to be one that’s a safe space, a happy place,” he told Parade earlier in 2018. “Hallmark provides a sort of safe harbor in a sea of violence and such in TV, a place where you can go and see the stuff good memories are made of all the time, with no surprises…you watch a Hallmark movie, I’m betting you’re happier after it.”
