DIY: Nativity Popsicle Sticks Ideas


Christmas is one of the exciting seasons in the year that ideas for DIY projects are simply unlimited!  Ohh, if only I have moooooore time.  Anyway, to remain true in the spirit & meaning of Christmas, I'm thinking of an easy and fun Christmas craft for my children in church with The Nativity in mind.  And what better way than to start with ready materials like the Popsicle sticks, right?

Thinking of something different for your Christmas drinks?  How about a sparkling wine ice cream float?  I know it sounds silly.  It was really just a crazy thought but after we tried it, eureka!

XX Days Before Christmas

Family + Friends = LOVE

Ohh, dear! Less than a month to go before Christmas.  Here's my list of things to do for before this festive season.  I know it's a bit late for this, but better late than never, right? 

1.  Clean House & Decorate

De-clutter to accommodate new things!  Can you believe last year's unwrapped gifts are still in our storage?  The fabulous diy Christmas tree is still in the works... I wonder if it'll materialize this year? But more importantly, all I want for Christmas is a spick-and-span house (including the walk-in-closet)

2.  Make a Christmas List & Budget

Christmas bonuses and 13th month pay are great but got to think long term.  In prep for next year's expenses, H & I will have to be creative with our gifts this year.  God help me with H's Christmas wish! x_X

3.  Calendar Events

Plan activities & prioritize to save on fuel, time, and money.  Consolidate events if possible, help plan events to manage expenses, and focus on things that will last - friendship, family & food? Lol

4.  Start window shopping & placing orders

Oh my.  

5.  Start on my dream board for 2013

More importantly, have a personal quiet time where I can start visualizing my 2013.  Then, start putting those thoughts to a collage or drawing book.  What I've learned about dreams/visions lately- "if I can see it (clearly), I can do it!"

How's your holiday prep doing?

H's Christmas Wish

folding bike

First, he wanted rubber shoes for running.  We bought a matching pair.
Then, he wanted sports attire.  His sister took care of it.
Now, he wants a folding bike.

I faint.

DIY Christmas Tree Ideas 2012

Modern DIY Christmas Tree

We still don't have a Christmas tree this year. But I'm glad H finally agreed to have a DIY tree as long as I don't spend a penny on it. Hay, pressure!
