Christmas Craft & Decorating Ideas.
I’ve been a busy little elf this year …

Christmas came early in 2015. I was gluing and folding and fluffing and hanging ornaments and setting tables waaaaaaay back in October.
But you know what? I loved – and love – it all. I loved each and every step along the way. I never complained. It never felt like a chore. Or burden. My holiday spirit never faltered …
I loved getting an early start on Christmas. I loved (and continue to love) having a Christmas tree in my dining room since Halloween …

… I might even make it a year round tree!
My only 2015 Christmas regret? Not getting pictures of the family room. It was last on my list. And by the time I got it all set up and picture perfect, my son returned from college. And moved into the family room. Complete with gaming consoles (plural) and controllers (plural) and headsets (plural) and laptops (plural) and wires (plural). Lots and lots of wires. Snaking their way across the floor …
and stressing me out.
Some kids bring home trash bags full of dirty clothes from college. Mine brings electronics. And wires.
But it’s okay. I love (plural) having him home for winter break!
And with that, I leave you to enjoy your Christmas day! Happy holidays, my friends! Here’s hoping yours is merry and bright!

Merry Christmas to you and your family. Enjoy. I too love to decorate for Christmas early and enjoy it longer. This time of year just goes way too fast.
Have a wonderful day.
You have been a very busy girl!….Hope you and your family had a most wonderful Christmas!
Merry Christmas Linda to you and yours. Thank you for a wonderful year of fun and real post. I love your blog because you are real. Enjoy having your son home, along with all the mess families make at this time of year.
When you made the knock off pom pom wreath , how much yarn did it take for that one and what size wreath did you use? How big was the card board you used to wrap it?
Love the way yours turned out. Just found your blog and I love everything.
I honestly am not sure how much yarn I used! I had created the pom pom wreath quite a few years ago. I do know the wreath form I used was on the smaller size, though. I think they’re 12 or 14 inches in diameter. As for the piece of cardboard, it measured 4 inches. This post gives more details about how I made the pom poms: http://www.itallstartedwithpaint.com/pillow-fight/
And thank you for your very kind words! Happy holidays and Happy New Year! 🙂 Linda
Sorry I wasn’t able to send greeting wishes for your Christmas but sure do hope your holiday was fantastic and happy. We had very quiet day, daughter/family came over for hour or so then went home for their meal, etc. Their oldest is home from college also. I was happy to stay home to be comfy and able to shut my eyes when I needed to, be able to curl up under throw, have cup of coffee. We had easy dinner, not typical holiday but for just us two was fine. Am still healing, doing lots of exercises to get shoulder/arm working so tend to tire out more quickly. Been cold and had 4.5 inches of snow on Christmas day then more in afternoon. Hope you have great last week of 2015. Happy New Year
