Around this time of the year I usually get so inspired with all the pretty holiday decorations, crafts, gift giving ideas and whatever I see out there, everything is so eye candy!
The problem is I usually don’t do as much as want to. So, because we moved this year and we have our own little place I still feel that little worm that makes me “do” more, so I need to take advantage, I want to make a difference this time, just stop looking and start doing!
I got this Holiday Martha Stewart magazine (the one in the pics) the other day to help me out, I love having a real book or magazine to look at, I do find lots of inspiration in the internet but the printed work is always essential for me. I bookmarked what I might be able to do: A Painted Sweetgum-Fruit Wreath, Monogram Tags for the gifts and the most ambitious: the Glowing Pine Cone Bouquet.
I’m also pretty sure I’ll make these pine cone place-sets (from Martha Stewart) for Thanksgiving dinner with Adrian, we have a lot of pine cones around here and he wants to collect them, so this looks like the perfect craft to do with him!
And last but not least, check out the digital magazine GIFTED from Ez at Creature Comforts blog (picture at the bottom of the post), many many great gift ideas under $30, I love her style so many of the gifts she picked are actually things I would consider! Thanks for your inspiration Ez!
What are you inspired with these holidays? Do you have projects lined-up?

Y por último, miren la revista digital GIFTED de Ez en el blog Creature Comforts, hay muchísimas ideas de regalos para todos por menos de $30, a mi me encanta su estilo y ya vi muchas cosas que consideraría. Gracias por tanta inspiración Ez!
Que les inspira a ustedes estas fiestas? Tienen algún proyecto en el horizonte?

I'm always inspired to create my own homemade cards. It's a lot of fun to just immerse oneself in something as fun as card making.
