Let's take a break from our Book Advent for a moment or two...
I began this little blog in January... please don't go back and read my posts. I had NO CLUE what I was doing. I didn't know any blogging etiquette and rules. I simply wanted to record my projects. The first posts I did were about my Christmas crafts. I don't have time to craft during December (I don't know how many of you create such amazing things during such a busy time!), so I did all of my Christmas crafts during January.
One of my favorite things about getting out my Christmas stuff this year was seeing all of last year's crafts--all tucked away, looking pretty. I found myself feeling pretty proud unwrapping some of my rookie crafts.
I love this Believe banner:
One of the only things I don't like about our new house is that we do not have a mantel! We do have lovely built-in nooks for our TV and electronics. There is a bit of a ledge, but it is high and not ideal for decorating. But I climbed up on that ledge and hung last year's Believe banner in the window. It's actually perfect because we have a spotlight that shines on it. I ended up using a lot of gold in our decor, so this banner was the perfect touch! You can see how I made this banner in my post here.
Here is a little closer view.
Remember my crepe paper wreath? It looks stunning on my little ledge. I just threw on a gold ribbon and suddenly it screams "Christmas!"
Now hopefully I can get my entire decor scheme finished, and I can show you all of it. Figuring out how to decorate a new home can take a little time! Maybe I'll have it figured out by Christmas!
