its beginning to look alot like christmas

i'm into the season this year!! last year was too crazy and i feel i didn't really get to experience it all. this year although my decorations are minimal.. due to the age and grabiness of my twins and also the fact that packing and moving is inching closer and closer. i am in love with the sparkle around my house. i have been a busy bee crafting alot lately. i am trying to make handmade gifts this year. its an interesting thing to embark on because the amount of time and energy that goes into it can be scary... will the receiver really appreciate a handmade gift? or would it be better to go to dollarama. but i am enjoying the process.. here is a glimpse around my house for the holidays. i made the button trees inspired by Ali
also if you have not yet purchased Sarah Maclachlan's Wintersong... run don't walk to the store right now and pick it up...

I feel the same way about giving homemade things. I want to, and I will do some, but at the same time I wonder if I should just go out and buy something. It's amazing how much time and effort goes into even a small project.

Lovin' your holiday decor! :)

Looks good Heather! I also felt that I totally missed out on the Christmas spirit last year. I think our credit card is paying for it this year...

all of your handiwork looks great! i'm not nearly as crafty as you, but i love to bake and i made my first batch of christmas cookies tonight! i made some sugar cookie cut-outs and tomorrow i will decorate them!
