Holiday Project Ideas
There's still time to make these!

Since there's still almost half a year before the December holidays, we thought you might like to see some project ideas that aren't quick'n'easy. These will take some time and concentration (and maybe a stop by Your Happy Place to get some help), but you can totally finish them in time for holiday decorating.
