Christmas in 1-2-3

December, 2013 · By Coryanne Ettiene

Fra, la, la, la, la……  Did you hear?  Christmas is coming, and with Thanksgiving and Christmas so close together this year, I am still whipping up pumpkin puddings while I deck the halls with bells of holly…Fra, la, la, la.  I am so excited about this Christmas season, I have gingerbread to make, wrapping paper to create, holiday bunting to sew and kisses to snatch under the mistletoe;  hardly any time to get it all done and still find time to catch up on all of those traditional Christmas movies that leave me laughing and crying at the same time.   There are 20 days left before Santa Clause lands with a sack of goodies, and by this time tomorrow we will be feasting on St. Nicholas night, setting out our boots and dancing around the Christmas tree.

Here is a quick round up of where I am getting my Christmas inspiration this year, in 1-2-3……

Simple and quick holiday DIY projects
