That’s right 49 days and counting… UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!
I know, I know… it’s just now barely November. And I LOVE November. I’ve been known to say it is my favorite, I mean it does contain my birthday and all.
But Christmas is a darn close second. Like almost tied sort of second.
Working retail ruined it for me for a few years, but now I want to hear #allthesongs, and make #allthecrafts, and bake #allthecookies, and do #allthethings Christmas related!
(And yes, I freely admit I’ve gone to the hashtag dark side.)
So, while I’m enjoying November and its festivities, I’m preparing all things Christmas… to put out the day AFTER Thanksgiving people. <– pet peeve
In prep… check out all these Christmas things I’m checking out! First up… printables:
Chalkboard Christmas Printables. <– frame worthy!!
Chalkboard Goodie Labels. <– “Christmas Calories Don’t Count!” yes!
Mulling Spice Gift Jar Idea with Free Printable Labels. (they fit in the top of a mason jar perfectly!!)
Coffee Labels. Because, hello… coffee. #coffeeeverything
White Christmas, White Wine. should I say #wineeverything ? ps, you are welcome to bring this label, attached to a bottle of course, to my house at anytime… example below! :D
Christmas lights inside for a magical holiday. I SO SO SO want to do this in my hallway!!!
Snowman door. I wonder if I can make this look like Olaf, because hearing Abbi so Olaf (“Olas”) is pretty much the cutest thing EVER.
Strung cranberries name holder. I remember stringing cranberries for the tree as a kid, love this idea to go along with!
Pallet tree! Because #pallet everything ! Also, something I actually already have planned to do with a group of ladies!
Fabric tree! Because awesome.
PVC tree! Just look… I want to do this SO bad!

25 days of service. more ideas to mix it up!
Advent Action Cards! even more ideas! Can you tell I love this idea yet? Instead of “get a treat” how about “take a treat to a neighbor”!
Kids Kindness Advent Ideas! My girls might still be a little young for these (“wash your parents car”… yes! we can use that one in a few years!), but some great ideas for kids!
Printable Tags! <– to make it all pretty! hello?!
And last but not least… I have been completely sucked in to those little videos on decorating cookies floating around on facebook, so I told Mom we should do a Christmas Cookie/Royal Icing challenge!!
And because it is still November, and I didn’t actually link any recipes up there (say, what?!), here’s a recipe you should make. Right now. Ok? PUMPKIN PECAN COBBLER. Do you understand now?
So November, so delicious!
