Happy Saturday! It’s beginning to look a little like Santa’s workshop here this week! These Saturday posts aim to be short and sweet and a little bit behind-the-scenes, so you can find out a little more about what goes on around here at HQ and in my Happy Home. You can join in too if you like. There aren’t any prompts and it doesn’t have to be a Saturday, just one thing worth taking a photo of that makes your home feel happy this week (or anytime really).
In years past I may have played the Christmas grinch, but I’ve always loved wrapping season. This year I’m actually loving preparing for Christmas and I have to blame this blog for it’s good influence on my cheery state. So my office is starting to fill with the gifts that have been purchased for both Birthdays and Christmas (because we’re that crazy family that only has birthdays between September and January!) and I’m in charge of wrapping them and making them look pretty. I am LOVING it!
I headed into Melbourne last weekend and managed to find almost all of what I was looking for so that made everything a lot less stressful! There’s nothing worse than making a special trip only to not be able to find anything you want! I still have quite a few more presents to buy but between last weekend’s present buying mission and the Madman Christmas Party I went to on Tuesday evening (more about that soon), I’m feeling a lot closer to being Christmas ready.
I also bought some Christmas cookie cutters and some food decorations for the cookies that I will be baking for the extended family gifts. Now I just have to be patient and not bake them too early! I have all the wrapping ready to go for them too! Getting all the wrapping done is making me happy and feeling more ready for whatever December brings!
So, now it’s over to you. What’s making you happy in your home this week? You can join in on Twitter (@danniellecresp) or Instagram (@dannielle) with the hashtag #inmyhappyhome or share a pic with the new facebook page or blog about it and leave your link below.
