Christmas Magic is Coming

Sunday, I had a text message sent to me that stated "ALERT: Christmas Magic is officially HERE!"

We, among with many of you, had a good accumulation of snow on Sunday. I have to say, it definitely does put you in the Christmas spirit. But for reals yall, it's not even Thanksgiving yet...though I honestly, can't believe that it IS NEXT week. Kevin and I are prepping to trek all the way from Norman, Oklahoma to Troy, Michigan. That's 15 hours for you curious types. We have a Jim Gaffigan book and The Best of Me on audio for the drive.

Since I shared several of my Fall Favorite DIYs a little late, maybe I'll be able to get ahead better and share my favorite Christmas DIYs earlier this year...maybe.

I do have one today though! A reader recently emailed me that she gave my Nativity Pallet diy a try and put her own spin on it....LOVE! I think this is one of my most favorite emails I've ever received! I am so thankful to see my little project inspiring one of you. Plus, how much more awesome is her version?! Seriously...I might be a little jealous of the lights addition.

Here's her message:
Hi! I’m Larissa. ..  I love your pallet nativity! I don't have a lot of room outside my apartment, and this was a great way to decorate in a small space. My husband even drilled holes and strung lights to make stars, except for THE star, which I painted around a pre-existing hole. Thanks for the great idea!

 Christmas magic DID in fact show up at Starbucks recently. And in other news, I have my phone back! After 10 days without a phone, I finally have one...that's a story for another day. PLUS I'm loving jamberry nails...and that's all for this random Tuesday...

What's your favorite Christmas DIY?

Whatcha got going on this week? My week is jam packed! It's going to be crazy town in the Burns' home until we leave for that road trip next week.


  1. I can't believe how much snow there is already! I wouldn't really look forward to roadtripping in snow--but your audio books sound like they'll make the trip fun!

  2. Oh my goodness, that Nativity pallet is just beautiful! I love the idea of it! We're still stationed in Arizona right now, but we're moving to NY right before Christmas - right to the heart of the snowfall, and I can't wait!

  3. How neat! I'm so glad you like it. We've just had our first snow here on the WV/KY border, so now I'm even more excited to set it up & start decorating for Christmas!
