Friday I'm in Love... With Christmas Time!!!

I love this time of year so much!  I think the only thing I don't like about it is the fact that it's only a month long!!  I have been a busy beaver here over the past few days working on some projects for my Christmas decor.  My house is a total mess, and I hear hubby literally groan everytime he walks down the stairs.  This morning I heard him exclaim "This place is a  DISASTER!!"  LOL - sorry hubs, give me the weekend and it will be back to normal, I promise! 

Of course I have been drooling over all of the Christmas projects in the blogosphere lately - nothing like blog surfing to get you in the holiday spirit!  Here are some of the MANY holiday projects I have found lately.  Just to pre-warn you - my Friday favorites will probably revolve around Christmas throughout the month of December - you don't mind though, right?

Almost a month ago, I saw these ADorABLE Pinecone Map Ornaments over at Turtles and Tails.  I have been waiting for my Christmas post to share it.  Barb found inspiration on Pinterest, and this is her version - isn't it so cute??  

Here's another project that I found a few weeks ago and have been itching to share!  I am so in love with this burlap stocking from Maggie at Sweetwater Baby!  I am so inspired to make one of these of my own - which could end up being a disaster.  Maybe I will just order some of hers!!

Some of the holiday projects I have been working on involve yarn - so when I saw these Yarn-Wrapped Star Ornaments over at live.laugh.rowe, I fell totally in love!  Kelly shares the complete tutorial - and they look pretty easy.  LOVE!!

Who doesn't love a good snow globe?  These Anthropologie Knockoffs are just awesome!  Aimee from Its Overflowing has done it again.  She made these on a budget and they look like a million bucks!  The mason jars are the best part.  Thanks for sharing the tutorial Aimee!

And finally, I am so happy to have found this idea over at From Gardners 2 Bergers!  I bought a dozen of these clear fillable ornaments with the intention of making some snow filled ornaments with Addison.  We filled about 4 of them with Styrofoam balls, and it made such a static-y mess we both got annoyed and stopped.  So now I am left with 8 more ornaments, and wasn't sure what to do with them...until now!    Becca made these super cute French Christmas Carol Ornaments using music sheet graphics from The Graphics Fairy!  Thanks for the idea Becca - I am so making these!
