friday favorites | december 14, 2012

Happy mid-December Friday, scrappy peeps! I have a super-sized post full of goodies to share with you today. Between the Christmas crafting inspiration and all the beautiful December Daily inspiration that's floating around, I've rounded up two separate groupings- the usual set of nine craftier picks, and then a full dozen of my favorite December Daily albums that I've seen so far.

Before I get to that, though, I just had to link you up to a video of an awesome Christmas lights display...set to Gangnam Style!


And now, on with the crafty goodness!

  • Looking for ways to use up some of your loose glitter? Silhouette shows you how to make these lovely glittered snowflake ornaments.
  • Allison Waken has created a lovely mini-album style advent calendar for Elle's Studio.
  • A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of my all-time favorite Christmas specials, so of course I had to link up this set of felt ornaments inspired by the show. Check them at at A Little Gray, where you'll also find a tutorial!
  • Melissa Phillips shows you how to create these sweet, whimsical felt trees.
  • Need a little inspiration for activities to document in your Christmas journal this season? Tara Anderson has a great list of 31 things to do during December on her blog, The Pink Couch.
  • The Red Thread has a free downloadable template for these fun, geometric ornaments. What a great way to make some easy, trendy ornaments this year!
  • Wouldn't this bulb bouquet make a great photography prop for Christmas portraits? Learn how to make your own at The House That Lars Built.
  • You'll find a tutorial for making this gorgeous Anthropologie-inspired scroll garland at Bird's Party.
  • Hostess With the Mostess is giving away a free set of downloadable Christmas printables.

There are so many amazing December Daily and Journal Your Christmas albums being shared this year! With it being a month-long project most of these ladies will be making multiple updates on their blog throughout the season (in most cases I have linked up to their first December Daily related post), and I encourage you to continue to visit them for even more inspiration to come!
