Creatively Christmas Book Decorating Ideas

The count down is just a few days away until the Christmas book release! Those of you who have e-mailed me and said you pre-ordered a copy, thank you!I am excited to see if you love it! I hope I am not boring you with it, but I wanted to share a few sneak peek pictures before it it’s the bookstores October 14th. 🙂 I have to be honest, I still cannot believe this is actually for realz… And maybe I am too old to say “for realz”?

I think Creatively Christmas and it’s mind-blowing to realize it’s all real.

It’s one of those things where when you sit down and think about it, it becomes a “Wow, this is really happening. Wow. I can’t believe I wrote over 27o pages of craft and home decor projects and holiday decorating ideas. I was most blessed by the amazing people who opened up their home to me.

These first few pictures are from homes I shot for the book. The last section  of the book is a tour of homes, and these homes are just beautiful all dressed up for the holidays.
