Every once in a while it’s nice to find an easy holiday DIY. Don’t get me wrong, I am the queen of long and drawn out DIY’s. But when I was at home goods and saw some adorable pom pom trees for $29.00 each I decided it was DIY time. So I went to Hobby Lobby and found everything I needed for pom pom Christmas trees! And of course, it was on sale. So my cost for each tree was less than $10.
Back in July when all of you were posting beach photos, I was posting Christmas Craft DIY photos here on my blog. Some of you thought I was crazy. In fact, a lot of you couldn’t believe I was posting Christmas ideas when it was ninety degrees outside! But now that it is almost December, can I tell you how happy I am that I have so many of these completed?
This year I decided I wanted to make personalized Christmas ornaments. I thought it would be fun to make a list of words that were special to everyone in our family. Words from the year 2017 … such as people’s names, places we have visited and anything else I could think of that has a special meaning to our family. I started with a list of 35 words but by the time I finished making the ornaments the list had grown to over 50. It’s a good thing the ornaments were easy to make!
Every year I try to come up with the perfect homemade gift for my family members. I am not exaggerating when I say I have been doing this since I was eight years old. Fortunately, I think the gifts have gotten better as the years have progressed!
As many of you know, I have a serious shortage of Christmas decorations. I own one box of decorations and I need to step up my game!
I am starting to get into the Christmas mode in a really big way. If you read my blog post earlier this week, you will know that I am really panicked about putting together all of my Christmas decorations. So let’s start with this garland!
Pinterest is such a great place for DIY ideas. Especially when it comes to Christmas projects. I recently saw this paper Magnolia wreath that was made by Seeking Lavender Lane. I loved the look of it so I decided to make my own using a scrapbook paper instead. It’s an easy DIY and I think you should try it!
Originally I was planning on showing you in September how wonderful this frozen vodka looked with cranberries. But just so you know, there is no place in Southern California where you can buy fresh cranberries in September. Trust me, I tried everywhere!Read More
I have always put just as much importance in how a gift is wrapped as to what’s inside. Ok, wait, maybe that’s an overstatement. But I do care a lot about how I wrap my gifts. Because that “first impression” is very important. (Not to mention the fact if they are wrapped really nicely it’s hard for my kids to take a “sneak peek” before Christmas.)
