Christmas in October + Creatively Christmas book launch

Christmas in October? What! I know, stay tuned, I’ll explain. Just popping in real quick today to share my friends launch of her new Christmas book, Creatively Christmas. Do you know Jen from Jen Rizzo? I met Jen a couple years ago at the Haven conference while filling my face with food! ha. We were sitting next to each other and just hit off. She is so down to earth and super friendly. Some of you may know, she runs a wonderful Christmas home tour every year featuring amazingly talented bloggers from across the blogosphere. I am honored that she invites me each year and cannot wait to share our Christmas home for 2014. Would you believe me if I told you we pulled out 3 Christmas trees yesterday? Indeed we did ;). My grandfather is so confused about why we have trees up right now. I told him we are decorating 6 trees this year and he was speechless. He thinks I am out of my mind. I am kind of agreeing with him at the moment.

Jen’s book features never before seen Christmas craft tutorials, decorating ideas and loads of gorgeous Christmas inspiration.

Jen has a great eye for classic vintage decor and I love how cozy her spaces look. Curling up with a cozy book is what I want to do in this sitting area below.christmas in october plus creatively christmas book launch

Be sure to head on over to amazon where you can order your own copy of Creatively Christmas. You are sure to be inspired!

christmas in october plus creatively christmas book launchAs many of you know, Christmas in our home is insane with loads of trees and multiple mini-parties during Christmas eve and Christmas day. Living with four generations under one roof, we split up the festivities and go from room to room in our home. Like many of you, we travel during the holidays but we stay under one roof while we travel. This year I am trying to be organized with all the decorating and not last minute. My hope is to enjoy the Christmas season and relax so my mom and I are getting a jump start on the decorating. We are part of two Christmas home tours this year and decorating, taking pictures and writing the blog post takes an enormous amount of time so hence the, Christmas in October festivities under our roof ;). Sorry gramps, you will just have to deal with Christmas for three months! haha

    I put mine up early also. Not crazy at all. As you point out, it makes for one enjoyable season to be all ready and not feel rushed and anxious about all you have to do. I really enjoy this time of the year!! I have been doing this since the 80’s, (oops, did I age myself that much). I don’t do Halloween, so this is my go to decor!! I love it all year! I can’t wait to see what you and all the others are doing again this year. I hope you do plenty of “sneak peeks”!! Enjoy!!!
