I know the blog has been pretty quiet this month, but you didn’t HONESTLY think that I’d forget about my iconic monthly place cards over Christmas, did you?! Tsk, tsk.
I decided to keep things Christmassy since it’s only days away, and make some Christmas present place cards this month! I had SEVEN OTHER IDEAS in mind, ones that have been on my list all year long, but I put them on pause yet again for this holiday since I didn’t end up sharing a few other Christmas posts that I had mind.
I know how cliche this is going to sound, but I honestly can’t believe how quickly this year is coming to an end. Everything I read online says that this year took forever, but everyone I know in real life agrees with me that this year went by in the blink of an eye and that is TERRIFYING.
My life changed so much this year. From my work closing down, to a drastic up and down, up and down change in my social life, to my HAIR changing three different colours, I can barely keep track of everything that happened! But anyway, this isn’t an end of the year post – yet. This is a DIY post, so let’s get to it! ✂️
As I shared in my geeky ornament guide last month, my Christmas tree is filled with ornaments that fit one of two themes: geeky (obviously), and food.
Unfortunately, most of the EXACT food ornaments that I own have already sold out, as I began buying them in October – and whilst a lot of people rolled their eyes and shook their heads at me, they ended up selling out weeks ago, so I’m glad I got in quickly! 🙌
However, there’s still some fun ones available, plus this will give you an idea at which stores sell these kind of fun, quirky ornaments so you can keep that in mind for the future! As soon as it hits the “ber” months, I check their websites DAILY to see if their ornaments have hit the shelves 🙊 Let me know what food item you’d *love* to have hanging on your tree!
This has really been the year that we let our geekiness take over our Christmas tree, that’s for sure. A few years ago we bought Pokemon and Fallout baubles and they looked so out of place with our mostly food-themed ornaments, but then 2020 came along and I decided to go ALL out for Christmas!
I bought Marvel, Star Wars, and The Office themed ornaments, and I also made Brooklyn Nine Nine ornaments. I have other geeky and fandom-based DIY ornaments in mind – which I really hope to have finished in time for Christmas – but I DO have a *lot* that I hope to have finished in time for Christmas, so we’ll see how I go with my intense “to make” list! 😅
This ornament was the first Christmas DIY project – I guess it’s more of an UPcycle, or makeover, technically – that I completed for the year (it was actually finished way back in October, right after I bought it!) and I have been DYING to share it with you all, but we only put up our tree on the 20th, and I wanted to show you it on the actual tree, so here it is ☺️
