I have been up to my ears in holiday craft-awesome lately!
Not making them myself really (because when I craft it does NOT=awesome), but reading about them on various craft blogs.
Some people are SO creative.
I’m sad that I’m not one of those people.
But, Aimee, DIY-er extraordinnaire, and mama blogger at It’s Overflowing is oozing creative awesomeness!
Not only is she remodeling her 1950s rancher with her husband and blogging about all of the amazing updates, but she has a ton of extremely fun holiday inspired recipes and crafts for you enjoy too!
With so many great projects on her site, it was hard to narrow down my faves. Fortunately for you, I did it anyway (I know, you love me!).
So, here they are, in no particular order…
Head over to Aimee’s now and be prepared to spend some time being inspired to get your craft on!
