This Is Crazy . . .

Am I the only obsessed person who can't walk past a Christmas Magazine without buying it?
I've picked up these three in the past two weeks and I'm itching to get started decorating.
I have a very firm rule though:  No Christmas Decorations until November 24th.
I give myself one day to relax after Thanksgiving and then you can't stop me.
I do however start working on my Christmas crafts in November!
Glitter houses,
You name it I'll be starting next week.
How about you?
p.s. If your thinking of picking up the Christmas Cottages Magazine I'd skip it unless you like a lot of dark wood finishes and rustic settings.


  1. I have a severe magazine addiction doesn't end with just Christmas ones though. I've been thinking a lot about the upcoming holidays too. I have yet to put together a plan though. xo

  2. I love magazines at Christmas time. Usually I don't get to look at them alot but now that i have more time I can. Love them.

  3. Robin I am going very simple this year and I am exited about it.But I still love looking at those magazines! They are great eye candy! I am not decorating until the weekend after Thanksgiving.

  4. My hand is raised. I just purchased the Country Home Special Issue and now searching for Matthew Meads Holiday Issue--not sure when it will arrive on the shelves. In addition I have years and years of Holiday issues that I pull out every holiday. Yep, we're swimming in magazines, much to my husband's dismay. What can I say, other than I'm addicted.

    We typically start decorating after Thanksgiving. I thing this holiday deserves it's own time to be special.

  5. Yes, I share the obsession and keep past holiday issues! I have been crafting lots of ornaments - made some party invites - getting ready too, but no decorating yet.

  6. I'm with you, Robin! lol It's so easy to get caught up in the excitement of this beautiful season and of course we're always searching for new ideas! You should see the pile of mags I have on my desk that I need to look through yet!!! lol

  7. I haven't picked up any Christmas magazines, but I've been "pinning" Christmas crafts, decor, you name it, if it's Christmas-y, I've been pinning it. I'm not home yet, but once I'm home there will be no stopping me. I LOVE Christmas!!! I look forward to seeing what you're going to craft this year.
    Hugs, Cindy

  8. I have 2 of 3 of those magazines (and several others lol) and have already I have the disease even worse! We love having things decorated for Thanksgiving, too, and then we just enjoy it through Christmas!

  9. I also have 2 of the 3. Haven't found Country Home yet!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
