Pin the halls with boughs of holly...

I finally took the plunge and joined Pinterest a couple of months ago. And let me tell you -- it's ADDICTIVE. In a good way I suppose. :) If you've never heard of Pinterest, it is basically a place where you can take any ideas you see online and "pin" them to "boards" on your profile -- sort of like a visual bookmark. The neat thing is you can see what your friends (from Facebook and other places) have pinned too, and you can re-pin their ideas onto your boards too!

Since my hubby won't let me put up any Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving (he would even prefer I wait until December 1...), I thought I would do a little searching on Pinterest... just to get some ideas. ;) Here are some of my favorite things I've found so far:


Thumbprint tree -- make with salt dough and a cookie cutter



 Scrabble ornaments -- great gift idea for Rocky's family (they LOVE to play!)



Wreath for the front door made from popsicle sticks. Decorate with paint or glitter.



Fudge in cookie cutters -- great gift idea!



Cinnamon honey butter -- another great gift idea!



Advent idea -- Wrap 24 Christmas books you already own. Kids get to pick which one is read that day. Stack under kids tree in bedroom. Half the fun of presents is unwrapping them!




See how fun this is?! If you'd like to join the Pinterest craze, leave me your email address in the comments below (use "at" and "dot" to help prevent spam) -- you have to be invited to join, and I will gladly send you an invite. :)
