Reindeer Christmas Mantel

I couldn’t be more excited! This is my favourite time of year!

This month I wanted to show you the rooms we have finished within our home decorated for Christmas.

But then I saw all of the beautiful home tours blogger’s featured this week. (Did you see them, too?!)

Beautiful.

Nervous my home wasn’t good enough. That wasn’t good enough. I mean, how can you compare with those gorgeous homes?

I was stressing out – and realized exactly what I was doing…

Comparing.

I stopped what I was doing when I realized I wasn’t fully enjoying decorating because I was worried about how beautiful someone else’s home was. I was taking away from the joy of decorating my home for Christmas. (One of my favourite things to do of all time!)

I gave myself a pep talk and kept one thing in my mind – The joy I experience decorating my home.

After all, it’s only our second Christmas in our home and we are a young couple! (And although I don’t post my age on here, the fact is my 20-something age is a lot closer to the 20 than the ‘something’)

I think we’re doing pretty well so far. :)

As long as you experience every aspect of the holidays with joy in your heart you can’t go wrong.

Here’s a tutorial on how I created the Sheet Music Garland seen on my mantel!
