Believe it or not, I am still finding my way to decorating my home, so come on and check out these decor ideas and more to find inspiration together!
Alright, who can guess the correct Christmas tree count of my home? That’s always been an inside joke between my family and me on how many trees I’ll put up, and every year, the number varies. Some may say it’s an obsession, but I think more of it as a passion of mine! PS, stay tuned till the end to know how many trees I have this YEAR!
What about you? Do you have any unique traditions or inside jokes for the holidays between you and your family? I would love to hear some of them because I am always in need of some new traditions!
One tradition of mine is to start decorating earlier than everyone else, and I would say I start at the end of October. Now before you call me crazy, this is the life of a blogger! Also, I love decorating trees and seeing the glow of twinkle lights throughout my home! So can you blame me?
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 42
Hello and happy Saturday!
Cheers to the weekend! I don’t know about you, but I can’t wrap my head around the fact that Thanksgiving is next week, meaning December is almost here, meaning I need to get ALL of my shopping done soon!
People aren’t lying when they say this is the busiest time of the year! Besides decorating, crafting, baking and shopping, I have been (trying) to enjoy every bit of this season.
How are you doing? I know kids are coming home from college, and families are reuniting this Thanksgiving, so hey, the holidays aren’t all that stressful. I hope you are also soaking in every moment with your loved ones!
In the meantime, while waiting for the turkey festivities to begin, take a peek at some of these Christmas craft ideas to start thinking about what your holiday look will be this year!
A Personal Note from Janine
We are busy like elves over here. So many fun projects and so little time. I’m staying up late and waking up early, obsessed with crafts and baking.
I remember my mom was super productive this time of year, baking her delicious fruit cakes. Yes, I know fruit cakes have a reputation, but her recipe was so delicious. Her cake had nuts, dates and lots of yummy spices.
Once she baked her many cakes, she would cover them up in shiny tin foil and then wrapped it like a present with a beautiful red or green ribbon.
Her friends waited patiently for her to arrive with delicious breads! I remember how happy they were to receive her annual present.
I’m so sad that we can’t find her recipes. Someone in our family has her cookbooks stored somewhere and someday I’ll find them
But, in the meantime I’ll keep up her holiday spirit alive being my productive little elf!

This Week’s Tip – Quick Way to Light Candles
Built-in rechargeable lithium battery design, you can use the USB port to charge it through a computer, charger, power bank, etc.
When fully charged the 5 LED lights will illuminate simultaneously. Once the lighter is fully charged, you can light many holiday candles in your decorated home.
It has a built-in 6-second automatic power-off chip protection and external safety lock switch can effectively prevent children from the arc.
When doing photoshoots that use candles, I need a lighter that is quick to light a lot of candles, and this rechargeable candle lighter is the best!
It takes about 5 minutes to charge and it lasts for a long time! I don’t have to worry about finding matches and lighting them from the stove or sparking the match against its box over and over waiting for a flame.
My Latest Obsession – Christmas Pillow
Lately, I have been obsessed with Christmas pillows but this one in particular! I have a ton of pillows for every holiday, season, an event you name it.
BUT, Christmas pillows are my favorite pillows to buy. Why? Well, because they are so cheerful and I love the sayings that are printed on the pillow.
For my bedroom, I wanted something bright and fun to put on my bed. Once I came across this “holly jolly” pillow, I knew it would look perfect alongside my existing holiday pillows.
It’s honestly the cutest pillow and will look perfect in your home!
Writing about Christmas and inspiring others with creations of mine makes me smile. Hopefully, with some of my Christmas craft ideas, you were able to find something to design. If you can believe it or not, I’m still here crafting and creating away so stay tuned for more and MORE Christmas content!
