It’s November everyone. Time to get real about the holidays. I know it seems early but I made these pretty birch gift tags and I wanted to share them with you so we can all get a head start on our holiday prep. The free printable is at the bottom of this post.

There have been a couple of trends that I love in the crafty world – snow globes made from jars and painted plastic animals. I decided to combine the two into a holiday stacked animal snow globe.

Shadow boxes are fun and the sky is the limit when deciding what to fill the little cubbies with. I think this little box will be constantly changing but for now I’m enjoying a few silver and white Christmas trinkets.

Nothing dresses up a table like pretty place cards. It makes everyone feel special to have their name marking their reserved spot at the table. These glitter tape place cards are super quick and easy to make and will add a touch of glitter and elegance to my holiday table.

Oh... hello December, where did you come from? It's sort of strange to rush into the holiday season when you still have Thanksgiving leftovers in your refrigerator. But here we are and I lucked out and happen to have a holiday ornament post all ready to go. I participated in UCreate's Handmade Ornament Series a few weeks ago and now is a perfect time to reshare my ornament. Of course, I couldn’t resist using a little glitter to start off my holiday crafting season.

Here’s another item leftover from my fall décor. These beautiful Golden Delicious apples were part of my Thanksgiving tablescape. Of course, at the time, the were unadorned and hanging out with white pumpkins and acorns.

Every year I try to come up with a different type of advent calendar or Christmas countdown. This one doesn’t involve treats so it won’t be very popular at my house. But that’s okay – I like it.

It’s that glittery time of year. I’m usually not a sparkle and glitter type of person – except around the holidays. Then I love the look of silver, white and iridescent glitter.
