Way back in Halloween I pinned this thinking about making a Christmas variation.
It is from a blog – Kikicreates – that I actually know of because I searched that domain name to see if it existed. It does, and I really like all the ideas on there. There is sewing, crafting, printable downloads, and more.
I feel like sometimes I pin things thinking that I will totally do them, but I forget because the virtual cork board isn’t glaring me in the face like the pictures and recipes I actually print out and leave around the apartment. Oh – for those not familiar with “pinning” what I’m referring to is marking pictures to a website called Pinterest. The social website shares your virtual cork boards with your Pinterest friends and alerts you when someone repinned or “liked” your pin. It is a fun way to see creative ideas and save/mark ideas that you want to try. I get a little frustrated by over repinners because then the same items show up every month.
Back to Christmas crafting – I wanted to put JOY in frames. Joy is one of my favorite Christmas words because the whole season makes me happy and joyful. I got these frames on clearance at Target and planned out my layout quickly after getting home from the store.
I cut out the letters and put contrasting Christmas colors behind the cut out. That’s it.
Now when I look at the bookcase – Joy! The frames have an immediate effect.
Happy Christmas Season!
