Guess what I've been up to......???

I think I must be the first crazy Christmas lovin' person to put up their tree. The excitement always kicks in early here. 
We always put the tree up early and take it down on Boxing Day because it's my Birthday!

That means we still get to enjoy it for a whole month......

I made this simple white garland out of white pompoms I bought from Lincraft and some plain white cotton thread. It creates such a simple and whimsical effect and the best part is it only cost a few dollars.










As you can see it's all happening here at Scandi Coast Home.
At this rate I'll have the presents wrapped by Friday......

Have a Happy Monday!!!

  1. Day-um that twiggy tree looks good! I'm the same, I always put the tree up early and have it down on boxing day because I have these weird aversion to Christmas after Christmas. Whatever lol.
    Have fun with all that crafting!
