Framed Christmas Wreath

This past Sunday I spent an afternoon crafting with a few friends. If you know me personally, you know that I’m not the most crafty person around.

Case in point: the only thing I brought to contribute to the crafting party was a crochet hook.

Regardless, with my expectations of crafting success low, I went and proceeded to have a fabulous time. We made framed Christmas wreaths inspired by A Diamond in the Stuff. This particular craft was found via Pinterest (naturally.)

I photographed mine today for the December photo challenge I’m doing. If you want to see all of the photos I’m posting, visit The Punnery on Facebook.


All this to say that I’m slowly but surely getting into the Christmas spirit. It usually takes me awhile to get into it. My birthday is so close to Christmas that I often don’t want to even fathom the idea until after that is over. Not because I want it to be all about me, me, me. It’s moreso that I don’t want to feel the added pressure of the usual Christmas present shopping BS when I’m already stressing about whether I should have a party or not. Maybe I’m just a Scrooge? I dunno. Regardless, I’m getting there. Once we have a Christmas tree it’ll be easier, but for now, I’m going to enjoy my little wreath courtesy of a nice afternoon of crafting.

How about you? It’s December 3. Are you in the mood for Christmas yet?

Allow Me to Help You Help Me

As anyone who has come into my little bachelor pad knows, I definitely have a style to my home. Part of it is my own hording of weird and intriguing trinkets that I’ve discovered along life’s winding path, while others have been gifted, donated, etc. etc.

On top of that has always been help from my dear friend Munchkin. She’s got a fabulous eye for colour combination and is now THANKFULLY about to go to school to learn the technical stuff so she can open up her own business. ‘Til that happens, though, she’s my own personal interior designer, and I plan on sucking her dry, er, that is…relying on her expertise and knowledge to furnish my home.

With 25 days left before I move into my own little coach-house (it’s darling, I tell you!) I’m posting these images that I’ve stolen shamelessly from various house tours on Apartment Therapy in an effort to show Munchkin just exactly what my style is (although she already knows for the most part.) Consider these inspirations. And you can hover over the images to see my comments.
