decking the halls

I’ve gotten there. The point where I have been able to craft and decorate and get things together.

The halls? Consider them decked.

Our trees are up and trimmed.


I took a page from Pinterest and made my first ever yarn wreath with felt flowers.

And made a gift card wreath as a gift for someone special (the clips are all full now, but I didn’t take an updated picture).

I put together little Snowman Soup bags for party favors (click here for free printable)

And I was even able to take pictures of Bentley and Molly by the lights.

Presents are (mostly) wrapped and shopping is (mostly) done. My mom and stepdad are in town and that brings a whole new level of excitement to the holiday, so that is helping me along.

I can’t wait to share the pictures of the amazing gift I was given and also to post about how training fits into all the holiday insanity.

How has your schedule been this December? Have you been fitting in all the things you want/need or do you feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day?

  1. WOW you have so much done and it all looks beautiful! Our halls are not decked but we do have a tree (that has no lights on it yet). We’ve been trying to get it done this week but my fiancee has been working late everynight and so it will have to wait until the weekend….
    I think once school is out it will feel more like Christmas for me.

      Oh, thanks for that link to the printable! I have to save that for next year. We ended up just throwing together reindeer food at the last minute (or little man did and I watched lol!)

  2. Everything looks fantastic, way to go! I wish I were as creative as you are!

  3. Everything looks great! Your Pinterest projects are so fantastic. I always pin stuff but then never get around to crafting. I came to my parents’ house, which is all decked out, and I’m so much more in the Christmas spirit now! Amazing how much of a difference the decorations make.

    Wow! You are so incredibly creative!!! We put up our tree but never got around to decorating it. Oh well! We celebrate at my parents’ house so I just didn’t get to it this year. Hopefully when I have kids I’ll get more into the decorating!
