sweet November rain

I have been hit with the Holiday spirit! Seriously, I don't know why it has taken me so long to realize that November is for sure my favorite month ever! All the anticipation of the holidays, but none of the rush. Today was rainy and cold and blustery and thundery and perfect. I drank hot chocolate, read my book, snuggled in bed, and dreamed of holiday crafts to come. I know you are due a catch up post (so many MANY things happened here in the last few months!) but I just had to share some of the fun inspiration that I found surfing the nets.

I can't wait to get started!

I want to make a thankful tree on our kitchen wall (along the lines of this, but more ME). I have so much cute fall-ish paper I can't wait to cut into it!

Something beautiful to hang on our nekkid living room wall like this! (found here) so so pretty! I don't have ANY Thanksgiving decorations, so this might be a great way to start.

And I am definitely gonna hit up the hardware store so I can make one of these lovely banners! (tutorial found here, posted by this lovely lady. Both are some of my favorite blogs these days). Alas it won't let me upload the picture, but follow the link, it's adorable!

What is inspiring you this November? I just LOVE the holidays!

I love the Happy Thanksgiving banner!
I think we need a crafty get together :)

We have a thanksgiving tree, but I stuck a large branch in a pot and the kids get to hang leaves on it each day--it was a great FHE activity. I just made wood blocks that spell out harvest, and a stack of fun thanksgiving words made from vinyl lettering--someday I will post pics. But they were super easy. I am loving that banner--it would be super cute around our fireplace. Thanks for the inspiration.

What a great banner (and I probably have enough of the same kind of scrap paper to recreate it here L)

That is a fantastic banner! I might have to give that a try...

I'm getting into the holiday spirit with Freshlyblended's Holiday Ornament Swap. I do it every year, and it is always a sure-fire way of getting me into the spirit. :)
