I have exciting news to share…I know Christmas is a few months away…but when you love the season as much as I do and like to make festive decorations and gifts you can never start too early, right?
Back in January, a Better Homes & Garden editor and photographer came to my house to take photos of my holiday decor for their annual Christmas Ideas magazine. I wrote about the experience, here.
Guess what, the 2014 issue of BHG Christmas Ideas came out this week. I saw it when I was standing in line at Michaels.
My home is featured along with numerous other homeowners and bloggers’ homes. There are lots of different decorating styles to inspire you. Plus pages of projects and ideas on how to festively decorate, make ornaments, gift wrapping ideas, and more.
My holiday decorating colors are non-traditional. My feature was aptly titled, A Colorful Journey. :-)
8 pages showing my favorite things that I use to create a festive atmosphere for my family and friends.
All done on a budget, DIY, and lots of love. You can get Christmas Ideas magazine on sale through 12/08/2014 wherever magazines are sold.
Starting on October 17th, I am taking part in a holiday decorating blogger series with a few other bloggers called – Fridays till Christmas. I will be sharing how I did everything shown in the magazine and more to help you get your home holiday-ready.
Here are a few projects I posted last year to give you a head start.
- Christmas Tree Stand Made with Thrift Store Frames
- Glittery Pipe Cleaner Garland
- Merry & Bright Christmas Stockings
If you don’t see it on the magazine or newsstands when you are out and about shopping, you can order a digital copy, here.
Just in case you were wondering, as of today – September 12 – there are 103 days left to Christmas. ;-)
