Handmade Holidays Hooplah!

I don’t know what it is, but the idea of this party makes the reality of the Christmas season really set in for me. Our shopping days are numbered—kinda like the dollars in our bank account—so I’m pretty darn excited to see all the inspiration.

Speaking of Handmade Holidays, my friend Layla gave my living room a little “holiday hook-up” recently. I asked for one little trim work switcheroo, and she went Christmas Cra-za-zy on me! lettered cottage mantle

Asking you to go check out her blog is a bit like Gayle asking if you’ve ever heard of her friend Oprah, but if you missed the post(s), you should go see what she did!

Okay. Let’s get this party going! Link up, read up, and use up all the ideas you can!

I am not very crafty at all so didn't even try to make something! I did however find some wonderful ideas on how to wrap Christmas gifts. Hope that is OK.

Thanks for hosting this party. I am so looking forward to seeing what amazing things people have been creating.

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Can't wait to see these posts! Most of my Christmas crafts won't be posted until after the holidays...my family members read my blog, so I can't reveal their Christmas secrets! -diane

I've got to say that as soon as I remembered that today was your party, I rushed myself right on over. A few weeks ago, I was actually looking for links from last years party only to find that the links were no longer available. I couldn't wait for today! Money is super tight right now as we are expecting our first baby mid-December and we are redoing our whole house. Most of it is gutted at this point and we won't be moving back in for awhile. So I definatly was excited to see the links today! I so need help making some fabulous gifts for the people in my life. Thanks for hosting!!!
