43 Before 43: Actually Make Something I’ve Pinned From Pinterest

In the spirit of not being such a holiday Scrooge for Ruby’s sake, I’ve decided we’re going to decorate our house for the winter holidays.

This is a huge step for us. The first year we were in our house we cut down and decorated Christmas tree with lights and bows and then never did it again because we always spend it with family out-of-town. Plus the whole undecorating part was so not fun.

This year is different – the Ru is home and since I’ve always felt the holidays were for kids, we’ve finally got a reason to decorate.

Enter the Life/Birthday List and I found the inspiration from my favorite hobby obsession Pinterest:

For tutorials on making this and other alternative “trees” – click the photo.

Here is my actual “tree” – I’m looking forward to seeing it lit up at night.

I’m so excited I am able to already cross something off my list.  If you are interested in other ideas I have found for the home – check out my list on Pinterest.

Are you all inspiration (like me) or do you make time to be creative and actually make things?

  2. Oh my goodness, that tree is awesome. And I am so with you– becoming a mom has totally squelched my bah humbug, let’s not make a big fuss that we have to clean up attitude a little bit more each year. This weekend, we are even cutting down a Christmas tree. Madness. But also so darn fun. Thanks for sharing!

    • @rosie: let the bah humbug squelching begin! i’ve decided it’s my job to make the winter around here as wonderful as the rest of the year. small, fun activities and traditions where our little family decides what goes. i finally am starting to feel like a grown up!

      happy holidays! <3
