Hey friends! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Here it is not even Thanksgiving and already I’ve been thinking about Christmas. How about you? Are you there yet?
I decided after a very chaotic December last year when I was left feeling, not filled with the spirit of the season, but kind of relieved that it was all over, that this year I would shop earlier, decorate earlier, maybe even get myself a cute little holiday outfit earlier (vs. the afternoon before I have someplace to go that night, rushing around the outlet mall and buying ANYthing that is remotely festive).
I promised myself the gifts of simplicity and preparation for this year so that I can actually enjoy the season with my family. Are you with me???
This year I’m even going to do some of the cute seasonal DIYs I always wish I had time for because I’m starting early! I am so happy to join these inspiring bloggers for The Home Depot’s Workshop Virtual Party…..

Lesley of Chaotically Creative
and yours truly!
We’re all putting our own spin on the same project along with twenty other creatives who love DIY as much as we do. Next Monday, November 14 we’ll share them all!
This season’s project is exactly what I never knew we needed for our house. Check it out….it’s a holiday stocking post!
I love this project because we have 3 or 4 fires a week all through the winter, and at the holidays I constantly have to remove our Christmas stockings hanging from the mantle before we spark up a fire.
This is such a cute idea for those of you who have roaring fires frequently like we do, or for homes that don’t have a fireplace. It’s perfect for those of you that are apartment dwellers too since it takes up minimal space. (I have an idea to use it past the Christmas season too – more on that next week.)
The best part is that you can sign up to make this same project at your local Home Depot!
The Home Depot offers Workshops at all of their locations for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and experience levels. There are three types of Workshops offered –
Do-It- Yourself (DIY),
and Kids 🙂
You can learn how to build décor projects, how to make easy home repairs and how to operate tools through demonstrations and step-by-step instructions. Visit The Home Depot to learn more about Workshops.
I’ll be back next Monday with my version of the holiday stocking post!
