Christmas feeling already....

I know its only mid September but im already starting to feel christmassy apart from the weird weather. There are Christmas Chocolate isles in Tesco, Advent Calenders out and a whole section in The Range dedicated to Christmas decorations and lighting. Im tooooo excited i just want to get the tree up, wrap presents, decorate and watch Christmas films in oversized woolly jumpers. As soon as Halloween has been and gone i know its not long until Christmas.
Had to be included National Lampoon Christmas Vacation is my absolute favourite Christmas film, i look forward to watching it every year.
I have always LOVED the vintage, country looking Christmas decorations you can get and make your self, this year it is the style i plan to go for. Ive always been inspired by the Christmas cooking programs for decorations. I have a list of Christmas Craft ideas i want to do on my computer such as Bunting, Christmas Cards and Gift tags and decorations in general. Im almost tempted to starting making everything now so its all ready to put up in December.

I was looking through Etsy for some Halloween ideas that i could make and do for my brother. My family isn't a fan of Halloween at all but i always want to make sure i can do something for my younger brother, for example dress him up and have some edible gory looking foods for him to eat. I found this was a great place to look for Inspiration for all events such as weddings, Halloween, Birthdays ect, plus if you haven't got time to make the things you find but want them up you can buy them. From Looking at Etsy it has given me alot of inspiration for Christmas things such as the Vintage looking Christmas Cards and Christmas tags. It has so much Christmas stuff to buy and get inspiration from on there...its like heaven for someone who likes crafts or anything like that.
My Grandma got me into crafts/card making around 3/4 years ago now,she always makes the best cards, Pop up cards with little mice illustrations dressed up like humans at Christmas and Cards inspired by the Snowman and Father Christmas films. This time last year we moved into our new house so there was alot of mess and boxes around so we couldn't really have anything up and i was the one who had to force my family to go out and buy the Christmas tree. This year I want to do Christmas,I want to be the one to decorate everything in a very vintage Christmas style. I want to have help from my Grandma to make some really nice Vintage Christmas cards and tags.
 You know it Christmas when you see this on TV.
I will definitely be doing some Christmas Craft posts closer to Christmas, Im far to excited to start making everything. I will hopefully be doing some Halloween Craft posts so look out for them. I would like to let you know though by the app on my iPod* it is exactly.....
* Im not a sad person who has an app to tell her how long it is until Christmas it countdowns to any certain date you type in on the app to tell you how many days it is.
