Even the Furry Friends
Remembering Everyone at Christmas—
My daughter, Molly, is one of those people who just loves giving gifts. For her, the holidays are the perfect time to find not only that really special present but also lots of fun little treasures that make people smile. She’s the person that would wrap each individual Barbie outfit so that her cousins had several presents to open, LOL! Molly loves to see the joy on people’s faces when they unwrap gifts, and she gets a wonderful thrill seeing mountains of presents under the tree, even if half of them are dollar-store specials. For Molly, as for many of you, remembering everyone, including the pets, is what makes the holidays special. In this issue of Christmas Decorating, we included a special feature for those furry friends—who are more than just pets, but are truly part of the family. See “Purr-fect Pet Presents” on page 96 for many cute ideas. And for those who love to celebrate the holidays with a fun day of crafting with the kids or grandchildren, this issue’s collection of DIY ornaments will have you happy for hours. (No Pinterest fails here!) Gift-givers will love our creative takes on gift wrapping, and for those of you who like a simpler look for the holidays, our Scandi-style feature will wrap you in warmth. From dazzling baubles, bangles and beads, to an inviting country Christmas, this year’s Christmas Decorating issue has something for everyone. So cuddle up with your cat, get crafting with your grandkids or just enjoy a beautiful winter morning while indulging in page after page of the holiday season.
