24 Holiday Ideas: I’m Lovin’ it Features


24 Holiday Project Ideas at

 Whew, I had a marathon baking day yesterday! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen some of what I was up to.  I was in the kitchen for 16 hours and I’m not even finished with what all I want to bake.  I’ve barely done any shopping and we have yet to pull out our Christmas decorations.  I honestly don’t know where the time goes.

I am blown away by what you all have been up to!  If you need any holiday inspiration, from sweet treats to handmade ornaments to gift wrap ideas to a Christmas photo booth I found them and SO much more at this week’s I’m Lovin’ it linky party!  Over 300 posts were linked up and here are 24 holiday ideas that caught my eye!

    Beautiful ideas for the holidays. I’d love to make some of them but like you, where to find the time! Our tree is up and decorated thanks to the grand-girls and the house is done. However, haven’t really got a start on Christmas baking except for sugar cookies, cards aren’t done and gift buying barely has a dent in it. I’m not going to panic…I’m not going to panic :)
    Great round-up Cheryl.

    Cheryl, We did get our tree yesterday, but it’s still not decorated, and no other decorations yet either! I plan on doing that TODAY along with more baking. At least I have done SOME online shopping:) Thanks for featuring my truffles! :)

    So many awesome ideas! Thanks so much for including my Winter Ice Lanterns among them…and pinning! Sadly, I don’t think I am going to bake a thing unless I feel the pressure from my daughter when she comes home from college. Hope your holidays are Merry and Bright!

    Thanks so much for featuring my cupcakes, Cheryl! :) I still have lots of holiday baking to do. Our tree is up, but not decorated yet. I spent all day yesterday playing at Disney with my mom & daughter, so everything else got put on hold!
