My Christmas List...of Projects

Since my days are now filled with students, papers to grade, tests to make, and the like, I haven't had a whole lot of time for crafting. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do, but I am looking forward to Christmas break and having time to get a couple projects done. Christmas break is just about a month away, so I decided it was time to compile a list of some of the projects I'm hoping to get done over my break.



First up, is this adorable wreath! Seriously, go look, you won't be sorry. But in case you don't have time to look now, here's a sneak peak of the finished product.




Second up, a re-creation of a fabulous piece from Anthropologie! I love the look and the idea, but I don't love the price tag. So I'm going to hunt for pieces with a similar feel and create my own. I'll be sure to blog about the process and show the final product!


I just can't get over how adorable it is!

Third up is less of a craft project and more of a baking endeavor. Upside-down Cranberry Cake! Ummm, can you say "yum-O!"? I'm thinking I might have to make this one soon, since I just bought a 3 lb. bag of cranberries at Sam's Club today.

And last, but certainly not least, I'm going to attempt to make my own gingerbread house...again. Yes, again. I tried this last year, and the gingerbread came out way too heavy and impossible to put together. So, I'm going to make a few modifications, count on trusty Martha for the recipe, and give it another go.

I think two weeks is plenty of time to get all this done! Thinking about these projects makes me look forward to Christmas break just a little bit more. :)
