Christmas Time! Decor, Craft & DIY Ideas for a Fun Festive Season

Christmas is around the corner everyone! I can’t believe 2012 has gone so fast ๐Ÿ™‚ While I’m beginning to swelter in 30 degree heat, I know that there are many of you who are wintering in sub-zero snowy climates; I’ve spent a few Christmases in snow, and it’s really special and adds to that truly traditional Christmas feeling, but then again, I love a hot Christmas!

Think lazy afternoon lunches out on the patio, plenty of pims&lemonade, beach days & red bobbled hats, afternoon snoozes out on a mattress on the lawn, leftovers with bubbly, swimsuits and stripey tans, presents and early morning walks…

To celebrate all the fun and festivity of Christmas, here’s my usual selection of fantastic Christmas-inspired decor, DIY tricks & tips and some craft ideas too. I hope you and your loved ones have a truly blessed time this year, and that the joy and love of Jesus is with each of you ๐Ÿ™‚ MERRY MERRY!

Anyway, for those like me who simply cannot spent fortunes on Christmas decor, I’ve hunted around for some cool DIY ideas to get inspired this Christmas – check out these cool tips on creating your own budget-conscious decorations ๐Ÿ™‚
