18 Christmas Projects – Happy Hour Features

Happy December! I actually can’t believe it is ONLY December 1st today! This is the first year I have EVER done Christmas crafts and shopping way before December (I normally wait until last minute) so I feel like it should be almost Christmas by now. But I’m not complaining, I’m loving that this month is just beginning and I’m looking forward to all of the fun events ahead.

I had a blast going through all of the links from this week’s party. You guys really amaze me and I’m not just saying that. When going through the links I always keep windows open of all the projects that really stand out to me. To put things in perspective, I had about 30-40 windows open because I was THAT blown away but all of the amazing project linked up.

SO here is my narrowed down list of some of my favorite projects.
