Welcome to Happiness is Homemade! I hope that you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and start to your holiday season. It really is the greatest time of the year isn’t it?! You have already shared so many great things with us for the holidays, and I can’t wait until I see what you have this week. Bev from Red Eclectic Barn is choosing our features for this last week in November. As always I’ll be choosing my own feature after hers. Before we get to the features and those posts, let me share what’s been happening on the blog.
I’ve been busy making free printables for you over the past few weeks. You may remember that I shared this Christmas wish list back at the beginning of fall because I knew things were going to be extremely hard to get this Christmas. I wanted you to have those filled out and ready to go. This week I shared a few more free printables. I made four options of a letter to Santa that you can print and have your little ones fill out. There’s one that’s an adorable red and green fun one, a more big kid/teen version, and two Christian versions. Then you can put them in your DIY full-size Christmas mailbox that goes straight to Santa.
I made another set of printables, and these are for you! This flirty set of Christmas wish lists is made for you and your honey. One you can fill out to let your Santa Baby know what you want for Christmas, and the other he can fill out for you. Go check out the post for a sexy idea to have a fun filled night centered around the free printables.
Make sure you sign up to follow me via email. I have another set of at home date night printables coming for Christmas (and the family night too, like we did for Beetlejuice at Halloween). You’ll get an email when I add new posts so you never miss a tutorial, free printable, or forget to come link up with us! Use the buttons in the sidebar to follow me on social media to keep up with everything that’s going on here and to share your creativity with me!

I finally found a Dollar Tree location that had the little wood houses in stock! I made a set of three Christmas houses to use as shelf decor in my dining room. Check out the tutorial to learn how to make your own elegant set that you can customize to fit your Christmas decor colors or theme.
