A DIY Christmas!

So lately I've had Christmas on the brain! I know I know, Halloween hasn't even come yet, you think I don't know how crazy I am? But there are less than 3 months til Christmas, LESS THAN! I usually like to start my Christmas shopping early to get a head start so it doesn't get stressful & overwhelming come December when I should be enjoying the holiday season.

This year I will  more then likely be making most of my gifts (gotta be on the cheap since were trying to fix our house and we don't have a very big budget, but we have a very long Christmas list). So I am just informing you guys ahead of time that you will start seeing gifts being made soon, it's time to get my ball on a roll.

So for the next 2 1/2 to 3 months I will more than likely be posting some DIY Christmas Gift Ideas, & maybe even some DIY decorations!  It's hard to decorate since where we are staying is temporary until we fix our place so I haven't really got to decorate at all, but I might make a few small decoration things for the holidays, but it will mostly be gifts! I'm so excited & I hope you guys are too.

                 This Christmas Planner can be found at The Scrap Shoppe Blog! 
I was going to start a Christmas Planner, but just decided to add a Christmas section into my family binder instead to stay organized this holiday season. But if you want to make a one, I seen this Christmas planner that I LOVED. It was a great inspiration, Check out The Christmas Planner Here at The Scrap Shoppe!

Here come's Santa Claus, Here come's Santa Claus, Right down Santa Claus Lane!!!
La La La La, Lala Lalala, LA LA LALALA!
Yep that's right, I'm one of those! I'm one of those crazy Christmas freaks that once it starts getting chilly I start talking nothing but Christmas, wear Christmas sweaters, make fun days out of wrapping presents, paint my nails in Christmas colors, and sings Christmas Carols like ALL the time! I actually this past week made a Christmas playlist to listen to, to keep me in the spirit (which isn't hard to do). & Here's a pic of my nails from last Christmas

So tune in for some possible gift ideas on the cheap!! We'll have a very DIY Christmas together!
