Yes, I know that it isn’t quite Thanksgiving yet, but I have to admit I started decorating for Christmas on Monday. We plan on going to a U-Pick place for our Christmas tree, since the BF didn’t even know people chopped down their own trees until this year! (He blames his So-Cal upbringing for this). I’ve been busy crafting some ornaments for our tree, right now I’m at a grand total of FOUR so I either need to get crafting or we will have to get a tiny 1-foot tall tree to make up for my lack of ornaments! I don’t particularly like the plain glass ball ornaments (unless they are vintage mercury glass ones in muted tones) so I’m going to resist getting a big pack of those from a big-box store and aim for a mostly handmade tree (bonus: less $$$ spent on decorations = more $$$ for gifts).
Meanwhile, I’ve been checking out Etsy for some inspiration:
I’m definitely drawn to kitschy plastic Christmas decor, and I love how this little gal appears so grumpy.
I love this glittery disco Santa.
I need to look around my house for some match boxes, because these little mini wrapped gifts would be so easy to make.
This tuba boy is super cute.
Well, it’s back to Christmas crafting for me!
