have you ever had an entirely homemade christmas? i have. one year, for christmas, my family traveled to douthat state park in western virginia, rented a cabin, and had a very rustic christmas. we made all of the wrapping paper, decorations, treats, and gifts by hand (yeah i have seven siblings and i had to hand make each of them a gift...and i was like, twelve). but it turned out to be a lot of fun. we could actually focus on what christmas is really about, and sort of take time out from the busy-ness of the holidays to spend a much simpler christmas with each other.
so, during the month of december, i'd like to share a few ideas on how to create your own homemade christmas! from decorations, to presents, to activities. stay posted!
