Wow… Christmas is only 2 days away! We’re currently under a big ice storm at the moment so it’s been a good day to just stay home and get caught up! I’ve had cookie dough in my fridge for nearly a week so I finally got it baking just tonight! Tomorrow we hope to take in a Christmas Eve church service but it’ll definitely be weather permitting. But not a gift has been wrapped and the house is yet to be cleaned. What have I even been doing?!

I may be a little late with all things Christmas however imperfect is better than nothing so I’m rolling with it.

But I did manage to share a project this week!

Our perfectly imperfect real Christmas tree landed in a unique spot this year but is as cute as ever with a Christmas village theme along with a new and super easy to make wood tree skirt!

That will be my last Christmas post of the year! So let’s now check out a few last minute things to whip up for your Christmas and beyond with these fab upcycled project features from last week’s party…

And with that I’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas! Here’s hoping your season is filled with the most enjoyable moments creating the best memories ever! I may take a week off between Christmas and New Years to enjoy with my son but who knows… if I have some major downtime, I may be back with a project!

All the best!
