It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

At least it is on my dining room table! I don't know what happened to October but somehow it has come and gone and here we are on the first day of November. There are 54 days until Christmas which seems like a lot until I start thinking about all of the things that I want to make and bake between now and December 25. Every year I bake at least 4 of 5 types of cookies to give as gifts and I usually have a craft or two (or three or four!) that I'm working on for the holiday season. In other words, it's time to make a plan or at least to go shopping for supplies which is exactly what I did today :)

One of my projects for this year is wreaths. I want to make ornament wreaths like this one from Good Housekeeping.

I also bought an evergreen wreath form that I have big plans for. I hope to be posting great results soon!

Do you have plans for Christmas crafts or baking? Have you started your planning yet?


  1. good luck - can't wait to see the reveal!! check out my blog tomorrow for more holiday handmades, perhaps you'll attempt to make them -unlike me. :)

  2. Saying hi from Mingle Monday! I love making wreaths too! It's something my mom and I do every year! Can't wait to see how yours turns out!

  3. I love these wreaths! I am planning on making one similar to this, but it's going to be full of pom poms!! Stay tuned!
