I know. I know. Some may think it is way to early to be thinking about Christmas. After all, it is only the seventh of November. We haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet. However, it is never too early to be thinking about Christmas and the true meaning of this wonderful holiday. Christmas is not about the presents underneath the tree in the living room that your parents, siblings and relatives bought for you to unwrap either Christmas Eve night or Christmas Day. It is about the ultimate gift. The birth of Jesus Christ, God’s only son who came down from heaven and was born a virgin Mary so that we could have everlasting life.
That is why we celebrate Christmas. That is why it is never too early to be thinking about Christmas.
And it is kind of hard not to be getting in the Christmas spirit when Hallmark has already begun their Countdown to Christmas movies. Yes, I have seen a couple of them already. I’ve watched Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses starring Jill Wagner and Matthew Davis and Merry and Bright starring Jodie Sweetin and Andrew Walker. Both were excellent and I highly recommend them. This Saturday Hallmark is airing another original Christmas movie called Picture a Perfect Christmas starring Merritt Patterson (one of my favorite actresses) and Jon Cor. I can’t wait to watch it!
Not to mention stores have already started bringing out and displaying their holiday decor. Hobby Lobby especially has some great stuff this year which is one of the reasons I am writing this post. To show you some of the Christmas themed scrapbook paper I picked up during their 50% sale. They also started playing Christmas music which is wonderful! I loved listening to it as I shopped the other day.
*Insert Quick Note Here: At the end of this post, I will be including a picture of spot in my room that I am going to be decorating for the holidays. So be sure to stick around for that*
Now without further ado, let’s dive into the things I picked up from Hobby Lobby.
The first photo on the left is a collaboration of everything I own that is Christmas themed. Note the large scrapbook paper booklet and Christmas tree stickers. Those were actually given to me by my parents for Christmas a few years back. I have yet to use them but I hope to incorporate them into an idea I have. The second photo (the one on the right) is of the stuff I purchased at Hobby Lobby this year. Two scrapbook booklets sized 4.5 inches X 6.5 inches and three sheets of stickers two of which are of snowflakes. I might pick up some more stickers online.
This year for whatever reason my siblings do not want to decorate the living room and dining room with Christmas decor. Instead we are just going to put up our one artificial Christmas tree in the corner spot in our living room. So I thought this year, now that I have a desk, I am going to decorate my bedroom. I still have to pick a tree because our small artificial ones broke. I have a few ideas on how to decorate it one of which requires help from my dad. Hopefully, he wont mind too much in bringing down the Christmas ornament boxes. Anyway, check out the photo down below of where I am thinking of putting my tree.
I am hoping to do some more Christmas themed posts down below. So if you are interested in seeing them, please let me know down below. Or if you have any Christmas topic you would like to see covered please drop me a comment down below. Cheers! Until next time.
