It's ALMOST Christmas Decorating Time!!


This weekend my house will be completely Christmas-tized aside from the tree which will be carefully selected and decorated next weekend!  I am a fan of extending the Christmas decorating process as long as possible, but I also do not start decorating until the first of December.  Luckily, December 1st is a Saturday, so I can go full force and dominate the decorating!!  I am sooo excited!!
 
This year I have some grand plans for decorating and crafting!  Little man and I are going to be busy beavers tomorrow!  Here is a taste of what I have planned for us!

Much love.

  1. Such cool ideas! I have two glass ornaments laying around that I've been trying to figure out what to do with. Going to try that idea!

    1. Thanks! There are some great ideas on pinterest! One that is great for kids - take a drawing or their christmas letter and put it in an ornament with glitter, tie a ribbon on top, date it...could be a cute keepsafe :)

  2. Ugh, I wish my place was clean enough to start decorating tomorrow! I fail miserably. I really dig the Christmas newspaper-glitter ornaments and the lit-up book pile! Can't wait to see what you guys accomplish!

    1. Make it your mission to clean that place up! You will feel so much better once all the clutter is gone! I know I do! Then, you can decorate for CHRISTMAS!!
      I can't wait to see what we accomplish either!
