It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Vintage Santa
 Just a quick little post to share a few snippets of the holiday cheer going on around here...
What could be more festive than tree-flavoured beer?
I dug out my Christmas ornaments...
And hung them from the (sad little) curtain rod with care...
Sorry for the iPhoneness - I lost my camera. Again.
Then, we decked the parental tree...
And I DIY'd a few Christmas cards because I couldn't find any I really liked. I used cute stamps and inkpads from Inkwell Boutique and white cardstock/envelopes I found on clearance at the art supply store.
And then I DIY'd some gift wrap. I don't know about you, but I LOVE kraft paper. If I could cover everything in kraft paper, I would. Ask my friend, Vic - I wanted to wrap all of her books in it last weekend, haha. But I wanted to jazz it up a little, so in addition to using some super on sale festive ribbon I picked up at Michael's, I figured I would reuse my new stamps to create some paper. At first, I just used the stamps haphazardly after everything was already wrapped, like so:
But once I got into the swing of things, I started to use the stamps to create patterns before I wrapped them up. I just cut the paper to size, stamped it up, and then wrapped, like so:
Why yes, someone on my Christmas list IS getting bacon bandaids.
I think they turned out pretty cute! Easy, fun, and personal. My favourite kind of DIY ;)
I hope you get the chance to spend time with the people you love this year. With all of the tragedy that's happened recently, it really puts everything in perspective and makes me appreciate how lucky most of us are. Happy Holidays xo
