{Inspiration Workshop} - Handmade Holidays

I am participating in Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop this week.  The topic for today is holiday secrets and tips.  My tip for making the holiday season extra fun and cozy is to make and buy handmade decorations for your home!

When I think about Christmas decorations, I think handmade.  Not only because I want to support other  handmade artists, but there is a unique charm to handmade Christmas decorations.  There are so many creative handmade items online and tutorials for helping anyone, of any craft level, create fun decorations for their home. This time of year I look forward to a little extra crafting and baking, especially when it involves friends.  I also love an excuse to go to the local fabric and craft stores...

Now that it's December 1 {wow!} I am feeling inspired and ready to start celebrating and decorating for Christmas. There is something about waiting for December and the cold weather that makes the Christmas season official for me.  Now that we had our first snow, it's mid 30s this week and now Dec. 1, let this wonderful time of year begin!  

After spending way too much time on Pinterest and Etsy, I found a few handmade decorations that are adorable and have a little whimsy flair to them.  

Are you feeling inspired and ready to decorate!?

Happy December
Merry Christmas
