I can’t believe Christmas is only about 2 1/2 months away! Every year it always feels like it sneaks up so fast, and every year I’m saying the same thing, “Christmas is here already?” But it is. Go into the craft stores and they already have Christmas trees and ornaments and all kinds of Christmasy goodness out. It is a fun season, isn’t it? I love how it invokes a holiday cheer and family camaraderie.
One of my personal values is to weave a touch of creativity and handmade goodness with every special occasion that comes my way. Christmas definitely fits into that special occasion category. I don’t do it to save money. I do it, because to me, it speaks love and value that I would take the time to make something special with my hands. I do it to teach my kids that they can be creative and that, to take the time to think about someone else and what they like, is a blessing. As you put time and effort into a project, your heart swells with growing love.
With the holidays being about family, what better way to pull out all your hidden craftiness and make things together? It’s not always about how well those projects turn out but about creating that space to have fun together. That’s where I got this idea to do a Creative Christmas series here in this category of Creative Home. I am so excited about it! Look for my post on handmade Christmas ornaments soon!
