Here Comes Santa Claus!

ChristmasBlogIt’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but holiday madness has started to descend. Have you started planning for Christmas yet, or are you too zeroed in on the big Thanksgiving feast? Department stores are already decorated for the holidays and shelves are prominently stocked with wrapping paper, gift bags, and all types of wintery decorations. Whether you’re excited and planning for Christmas already or waiting, AllFreeHolidayCrafts has you covered!

At this time of the year I’m personally super excited for Thanksgiving; I have a small immediate family, so any time we get together is cherished. It also helps that everyone has an adorable dog they bring around. Dinner is potluck style, so everyone brings some sort of side dish to share and the biggest challenge of the night is how to fit everything on your plate during your first pass through the food. With full plates and fuller glasses, the entire evening just descends into laughter and puppy kisses.

Despite having Thanksgiving on my mind, I know I’m starting to think about Christmas. There are plenty of gifts I’m planning on buying for my friends, but I also want to try my hand at making them some creative gifts. The holiday season is also prime baking time, so of course I have all sorts of chocolate-y recipes I want to try.

To ease you into the Christmas mindset, here are some Christmas ideas. You’ll find patterns for Christmas-themed accessories, DIY Christmas gifts and decorations, and even some tasty, tasty recipes. For those that enjoy planning ahead and sending out some holiday cards, don’t worry; you’re covered, too.
