Christmas Home Tour

Hello, fellow DIY holiday lovers! I LOVE this time of year! You’d think that my premature head start on having our Christmas tree all decorated before Halloween would mean, it’d be Christmas in every room in our home by now, a huge Christmas extravaganza in the DIYShowOff house because that’s usually how I roll…Christmas in nearly every room. However, the truth is, I’m going with less is more this busy holiday season. 

Birds & Berries

Why would I even?! No worries! It’s not that I’m feeling all bah humbug. It’s not that I’ve lost that DIY feeling. I’ve found that I’m prioritizing in other ways this year. I’m enjoying spending time with family, sharing my passion for wellness through essential oils, soaking up all the time with those I love that I can get (we’ve had another cancer diagnosis in our family and it’s beginning to feel like an epidemic…time with family is so precious. It just makes me realize how short our time together is and that it’s never guaranteed). I’m cherishing friendships, celebrating birthdays, taking a breather from projects (it’s our plan to get back to it full force with bathroom and basement/man cave remodels in 2016), getting ready to pack for a relaxing much needed vacation…just keeping busy in ways that reduce stress and put the focus on “life” and giving and loving.

So this year, it’s ONE tree, not three. This year, it’s a family room all cozy and Christmas with the rest of the house simply clean, healthy and comfortable. This year, it’s more about the spirit of Christmas. About seeing the magic of Christmas through the eyes of a 1 year old, about making Christmas magic for others through actions, help, wellness, love.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m certainly enjoying everyone else’s Christmas decorating eye candy from talented blog friends’ Christmas home tours blog hops and the creativity linked to the weekly That DIY Party. Because my pin-finger is getting a work out! And I’m drooling over all that Christmas beauty too!
