While I Wait For Spring, I'm Working On Christmas

If you think you're confused, can you imagine how I'm feeling?!

A group of holiday DIY projects for HGTV are nearing completion, just in time to make the March 1st deadline.


How happy was I to see the first snowfall of the year on Thursday...just in the nick of time to get this photo!




If I forget to show these projects in more detail once the holidays roll around again, (in a mere eight months) please remind me...

In the meantime, check out my other articles written for HGTV.com here or on the sidebar of this blog. 

Is anyone else happy it's Friday?!

  3. I love Christmas so much you can blog about it in July! The Gold leafed candle sticks is a great idea. May have to try that this year! And I really like the pinecone wreath too!

LOL....I have to admit though I am happy to say goodbye to winter, I do love more than anything decorating the house for Christmas, the evergreen,tartan plaid ribbon, paperwhites and white amaryllis in big pots, all my nutcrackers..oh it is a beautiful holiday and the pictures above do it justice!

  13. What is lovely yellow and white piece of brightness in the form of furniture I spy in the last photo?? Is it new?

  14. I hope you were being well paid because I can only imagine how difficult it would be to get excited about Christmas in February. You totally lucked out with the weather though.

  15. That would be so hard for me but you pulled it off flawlessly!! They all look like great ideas...gives us something to look forward to!

  16. Yes, I couldn't believe my luck with the snow. When I heard there might be snow coming I placed all the materials by the front door the night before, just in case. When I got up and saw snow I quickly set up and took the photos, then woke up the kids and were we out enjoying the snow by 6:30. A.M. don't know if the neighbors approved!!

    ESE...no, nothing new, just moving things around!!

  19. I'm used to photo shoots super early for the holidays. My husband worked at companies that had Christmas photo shoots 9 months in advanced.

    The pictures are gorgeous, especially the tea lights in the snow. My friend, originally from Connecticut, thinks our Christmas lights look funny without snow. I'm a native Californian so I'm used to it.

  22. Do you mean we're going to have to wait for 10 months to see the whole thing?!! I'm sure you'll make it worth the wait.

  23. How exciting..can't wait to see it all! And wow, they have a really early deadline for a Winter issue??? I used to work for a magazine and we were barely a month ahead.
