Holidays are Here Weeee~

My family is huge into the holidays – like, we start planning for them in September, wait for Halloween to be over, then squeeee it’s November, time to prepare! So currently my Mom has been crafting together decorations out of things around the house, and I have been preparing to cover some holiday music! I am having such a hard time deciding what to do, though – I think I want to do one modern Carol, and one traditional one. I’m really tempted to try and do an acappella version of Carol of the Bells, that’s on the top of my list. I still remember vividly the arrangement we did when I was in middle school choir so sorta want to try and emulate it for nostalgia’s sake, but also am keeping my options open for other things. If you have any ideas, let me know – because I’m just in the planning phases right now as far as covers go.


Another thing I really want to do this year is make some beaded decorations for around the house. My Mom really got me into the crafting mood, and I know you can make wire work snowflakes and trees, and snowmen, so I am going to get some thinner gage wire next month and see what I can whip up. Excited to start some sort of jewelry design again, even if it’s for an ornament instead of a pendant!


What about you? Do you start your holiday planning early? Or just straight up start the holidays now like me, drop a comment and let me know!
