My Review:

Okay, I know it is only August but I have already begun getting ideas for how I want to decorate for Christmas, gifts I can make, how I want to do Christmas cards, and have even finished over half my Christmas shopping. One thing that I have really wanted to do is to simplify my Christmas preparations and include a number of homemade aspects. One resource that I recently discovered that will help me out is A Homemade Christmas by Tina Barseghian. 

This book is full of fantastic ideas to help you with throwing parties, doing cards, planning your decor and meals and so much more! Literally, it is packed with many ideas to keep Christmas simple and homemade. Very economic and easy ideas for the whole family to do.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
