Crafts of Christmas Past

Well, December is here and Christmas prep is in full swing…sorta. As usual I’m a little behind, but this year I am totally okay with that. I have my tree up (but not decorated) and I may go crazy on the mantel…I’ve never had a fireplace or a mantel before this year and it’s begging for the full Christmas treatment.

So while I don’t foresee myself creating and blogging about and Christmas crafts this year (because, four kids) I have done a few in the past that I’m sure a lot of y’all have never seen. So without further ado, Domestic Imperfection projects of Christmas past…

  1. As it did years ago, the Christmas tour of your home is quite funny. I enjoyed it again and will each time I see it. Enjoy your chaos in this season…as there is much “beauty” in the chaos. Your biggest fan.

  2. TucsonPatty says:

    Lots of great craft ideas! And I agree – the Christmas house tour is the best! Waiting to see the mantel! Merry Christmas!

  3. Your “house tour” deployment underwear story made me laugh cry.
    My husband leaves in Jan… He’s an older guy… who takes care (medical)
    of the younger guys. We have been “at this” for a long time.
    It’s still a little hard…but I am thankful for our guys that
    serve. Hang in there with your 4. My daughter had “4 under
    four” when her twins came. They are now 5,5,7 and almost 9.
    There is hope for sanity again. YOU CAN DO IT !!!!!
    I am a long time reader… and just wanted to cheer you on.

  4. Lots of great ideas there. I will have to remember them for next year now. Will be following you in the New Year

  5. Merry Christmas Ashley and a very blessed new year! Love this site; I find it quite comforting to read and see all the beautiful things you post.

Thank you for your comments!
