Christmas in....October??

So let me tell you something...I love everything about it. I love shopping for Christmas, wrapping presents, Christmas baking, my new nativity seen which is BEAUTIFUL, decorating the house, cutting our own tree and decorating it each year.....EVERYTHING! Its a beautiful season and each year I try to start it early. By the time Thanksgiving passes, and since Halloween hasn't been very big since we don't have kids(yet) and live in an apartment with no trick or treaters, I am ready to Christmas-ify(?) everything in the house. 

Well, this year I'll distract myself with baby-ing everything in the house first when my mom comes to visit in a few weeks.  BUT  when I saw Mandi over at Tidbits from the Tremaynes do this little craft I thought, I have crappy frames sitting around...looks like fun! So I tried some out....I don't have pictures for them yet and I want to finish off the edges but still... so Christmas-y...I love it!  But seriously take a look at hers cuz she has THE cutest kids in hers....LOVE!

Here's the new christmas frames!

How did this happen? Super easy, mix some white glue and water equal parts, cut the scrapbook paper to fit and glue it on.  I do one coat underneath and let it dry before doing a few top coats. And after the paper is on I used an exacto knife to make it fit a bit more precise. Simple as that. 

Definitely taking a pic at the first snowfall to go in these babies:)

I am so ready to start decorating for Christmas at my place too. It really is a magical time of year isn't it!

Great frames too. I think my daughter would love this as a Summer holiday project!

Best wishes,
