Are you ready for Christmas? We finished everything yesterday, except for the food preparations that can only be done at the last minute. I’m excited to unplug and spend the next little while with family and friends!
Thank you to everyone who shared projects at the 3 link parties I co-hosted this month along with Shannon from AKA Design, Jo-Anna from A Pretty Life in the Suburbs, and Aimee of It’s Overflowing. I hope you were inspired as much as I was. I definitely found some last minute ideas and pinned some that will have to wait until next year!
As promised, I’m sharing some of my favorites from each of the parties with you today. (Please pin from the original source.)
First up from our Handmade Gifts and Gift Wrap party…

Next, from the Holiday Recipes party…

I have to say it was difficult selecting only a few to highlight since there were so many fantastic ideas at each link party. So much talent in the blogosphere!
I want to take this time to wish you and your family a joyous Christmas. I will be taking a break for a few days to spend some quality time with family and friends- reconnecting, relaxing, and perhaps a little skiing.
See you soon!
