In my ideal world, I spend the day after Thanksgiving decorating for Christmas, buying a Christmas tree and outfitting it with twinkly lights and sparkly ornaments. This year, I won't return to my apartment until a few days after Thanksgiving, so at best that plan is pushed back a bit. Then, school is absolutely nuts for the first week and a half of December. So, I decided that I would start getting ready early. I'm not in full-blown Christmas mode, and no one is even over at my house for Thanksgiving, so I'm allowing myself to be a bit nuts. I thought I would share a few of my Christmas projects this week to help get you inspired for December. Yay! My favorite time of year! I couldn't be more excited (just in case you couldn't tell).
