I realize a lot of you think it’s too early to be planning for Christmas. But let me just tell you folks, you can never be too prepared! My sister-in-law has an Annual Christmas Crafts Extravaganza-palooza at her house every year, and this year it’s the first weekend in November, which is quickly approaching. I can’t think of a better way to kick off the holiday season than with hot chocolate, home-made soup, Christmas music, a group of super fun girls, and lots and lots of hot glue and glitter! ‘Tis the season people. Here are a few of the projects I hope to tackle this year.

I’m having a felt moment. It’s an unhealthy obsession really. It all began with an innocent trip to Hobby Lobby when my friend Lindsay introduced me to the magic, wonder, and awe that is… felt balls.

So I began to think, oh the glorious things I can do with felt…

Will my Christmas tree be completely made of felt? Possibly.

I realize it might be a tad early… considering it’s only August. But I personally believe it is never to early for a little Christmas cheer. I have been thinking a lot lately about how exciting it is that Matt and I will be enjoying our first Christmas together as a married couple. This leads me to day dream land about all the DIY projects I want to do to decorate our newlywed home! Here are some ideas:

Of course I will need to whip up some stockings to go on our “mantal” (also known as a $30 target bookshelf).

These lovelies pictured above are from the talented Rikrak.

I also think these are fun: (via)

Next up… A wreath! Although I’m not sure how I’m going to hang it on our door, I’ll figure that out when the time comes because how CUTE are these?






And who doesn’t love a good owl ornament? (via)

And I think I might try to do some DIY letters that mimmick the look of these Anthro fabric letters… or maybe I will just buy them since they are on sale? What will I spell you ask? Good question… Something Christmasy?

Comment and link me to some of your favorite Christmas ideas! Because I’m sure there is someone out there that is as excited about the season as I am.
