Christmas cards are filling up my mailbox and I could’t be more excited! I absolutely love displaying our loved ones Christmas Cards for all to see, it is probably one of my favorite aspects of Christmas decorating. This year I decided instead of purchasing a Christmas card holder or throwing all of our cards into a bowl, that I would get creative and make my own. I visited my nearby Hobby Lobby store to get some inspiration, and ended up leaving with an easy and perfect project to create, (because lets be real, who doesn’t love a good holiday inspired craft project?!)
In my home, Christmas decorating has a way of jumpstarting the Holiday spirit! This year I decided to decorate early, because I wanted to enjoy the spirit of Christmas for more than just a month. The holidays have always been special to me, but I had no idea how much better the season would be when shared with my kiddos! There is something about watching their eyes light up as they plug in the Christmas tree each day, or the joy Paisley has when she belts out her 3-yr old rendition of “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”… truly a special time of year!
I am that girl. You know, the one that gushes over the Pottery Barn Holiday Catalog every year when it comes in the mail. You have to agree, it is filled with the most lovely and desirable home touches, but I am not always willing to spend the pretty penny those price tags demand. That is why I love to create a personalized item in its place. Something similar that looks just as nice as the one you see in a fancy catalog, but in the end is extra special because it has your own personalized touch. A personalized stocking is one item I had to have, but with the help of a little creativy I was able to do so on a reasonable budget.
