This year will be our 4th Annual Homemade Holiday Inspiration series, and I couldn’t be more excited, every year it gets better and better. Like you, I absolutely adore the holiday season, but let’s be honest, it can be overwhelming – starting early is the key my friends!

Every year I tell myself that I am going to start early, then the time slips away and I don’t get it done. This year though I REALLY want to start early. I’m going to be honest though, it won’t be in July. My month of July is shaping up to be a bit crazy – awesome, but crazy! Right now on the calendar I have 9 new recipes to create and share for clients, 1 new project for a client, a room remodel for a client (I think we are doing a Farmhouse Dining Room, so stay tuned in mid July for that) and of course, we are working on the She Shed all this month (final reveal on July 29th). Oh and I have a trip to Better Homes and Garden headquarters and I am speaking at a conference in Atlanta. Fun stuff I tell you, but no time for Christmas projects. I think I will shoot for September, I might need the month of August to recover from July!

However, because I love to share with you, and I am definitely a planner. Let’s dive into 10 Christmas projects you can start this summer.
