    So beautiful craft.

  2. Carla says:

    I don’t start my Christmas crafting until around November! 🙂

  3. Sey says:

    I start around March, but am always buying supplies year round!!!

    Fingers crossed for the Glitter Spray. Every place I have checked since the holidays is out of it. They all say it is a seasonal item. Ugh!!!

  4. Meghan says:

    I normally start in the summer. I’m a school teacher so I really do a lot of crafting in the summer. Pinterest helps because I can “pin” some inspiration to do in the fall. I too buy a lot of my Christmas crafting supplies after Christmas. It’s so much cheaper and there are a lot more supplies than in the summer.

  5. Sue Shaver says:

    Hey, I just burned myself today on a Barbie cigar box closet for my granddaughter’s birthday tomorrow. Didn’t know they made such a thing!!!

  6. ColleenB. says:

    I really don’t have astarting point . In my spare time,away frrom my card making, every once in awhile throughout the year I may work on a Christmas project just for a change of pace.
    It’s one of those things, when an idea comes to mind, you want to get started and get it made right away, so it’s on going all year long.

  7. Mary Lou says:

    Start? I never stop! About Jan 3rd I start for the next Christmas and when it comes to gifts for the hohoho season, all year round

  8. Felicia Woodward says:

    Beautiful ornaments, I can’t wait til the holidays come around again now!

  9. Honestly… motivation starts the day after Christmas (when I actually purchased the cards for this year), take a red/green or white/blue break and then liven up the inspiration after Halloween to get in gear for more glitter and Christmas inspiration!

  10. Carrie says:

    When do I start Christmas crafting? I actually never really stop. I enjoy making Christmas crafts all year long!

  11. Birgit says:

    I think I will start with crafting for Christmas in fall — most likely after Halloween. On the other hand, I would really like to make one of those lovely Christmas cone trees right now — so sweet!

    • Sharon says:

      Aww, thanks, Birgit. Kathleen George designed this trio of topiaries. It’s a great project to use up bits and pieces of trims that you have on hand. Sharon

  12. Sar Tann says:

    I start Xmas crafting in the summer when my kids are out of school as well as in the late fall and winter months, or when ever we get inspired, This year I have been saving egg cartons and cutting them out and gluing them together to form ornaments. I also have some glass ones to decorate this year as well… Over the summer we will start to decorate them with glitter and bling. They will serve as ornaments for our tree as well as gifts from my kids to various family members. 🙂 I’m sure will also be making some for Halloween because thats also a huge holiday in our home as well. 🙂

  13. Jeannie (blue) says:

    I bet the glitter blast would be great for providing an pretty and easy background on wreaths.

  14. Kerry Kenne says:

    Oh wow! I’ve seen the glitter spray but can’t find it anywhere around our little town. We start planning & making Christmas decorations pretty much all year long! If I or my daughter finds an idea, we’ll try it out immediately but if I wait, I’ll forget where I put the instructions!

  15. Lisa M says:

    Wow! Cool ornaments. Love the one with the snowflake on it. Great site, that I enjoy checking out each day. Thanks!

  16. ambjer s. says:

    I will most likely begin Christmas decoration crafting in November, but making Christmas gifts I’ll probably start around September

  17. Donna O'Neil says:

    Thanks for the giveaway week!

    Golly I had no idea you could spray paint styrofoam. I usually start my Christmas projects mid July – this is when the stores like Hobby Lobby start stocking their shelves. I really should start in January though!

    • Sharon says:

      Hi Anne, Before spray painting STYROFOAM Brand Foam, read the paint label carefully to see if it’s safe for foam. Many spray paints contain solvents, and the solvents can eat into the foam. Ditto for spray adhesives. Sharon

    Loved today’s pictures. So many ideas running around in my head now….
