Pinterest has me thinking about Christmas lately. A bit early for some (like my husband, who prefers to do his Christmas shopping one or two days in advance), late for others (like my mom, who gets her Christmas shopping done in July).
The more I think about it, the more I want this Christmas to be as homemade as possible. Homemade stockings, homemade decorations, homemade food, homemade gifts...I'm just so excited at the thought of it. I'll be chronicling all the homemade goodness as it happens.
On tap for the season (so far):
-homemade stockings for the three of us (it's Archie's first Christmas, and last year I just got Tom and I plain stockings at Michaels and wrote our names on them with glitter fabric paint)
-homemade extracts (and possibly scented sugars) for someone I know who loves to bake
-decorative vases/bottles for someone I know who loves to decorate (this is what I'm thinking...not something lame) for someone I know that loves holiday decorating
-a wreath (or five...I have so many different wreath tutorials that are super cute. It's really difficult to pick!).
-homemade gift tags (and maybe gift wrap!)
-I'm also considering blankets and rag dolls for some of the younger members of our family, but we'll have to wait and see.
