10 Simple Christmas Ideas at

Welcome to week 236 (that’s 4.5 years!) of  the I’m Lovin’ Link Party, where you can find all the newest creative ideas from around the web! Stop by every Thursday evening, link up your posts, and check out what all others are sharing! My hope is, you’ll discover amazing new blogs and find inspiration for crafts, diy projects, recipes, home decor and so more!  If you are new here, WELCOME!! I’m so excited you’ve take the time to stop by and share some of your great ideas with us!

Cue the snow…….the crackling fire, Christmas music playing and Christmas decor pulled out………and I got the flu.  We couldn’t have ordered a more perfect day, and I just wasn’t up to decorating.  I was hoping to get an early start on Christmas this year, but that didn’t happen.  Instead we waited until last weekend when I was feeling better and we hit a record high of 72 that day.  Crazy St. Louis weather.  The good new is, it made it much easier for Steve to put up the outside lights.  This year, I’ve decided to keep it simple.  I only put out the stuff I really love, and a few new things I bought or made.  So I thought it was only fitting to feature some simple Christmas ideas that linked up and caught my eye last week.  Be sure to click over to get the full tutorial, recipe and details for each idea.
