Once upon a time, there were five bloggers who put out a call to their creative cohorts around the Internet.

Show us how you do it up for Christmas? What do you make? What do you bake? How do you decorate? How do you celebrate? Inspire us.

Wow! You certainly did.

Better Late Than Never Christmas Inspirations Blog Hop Party

And today, we are unveiling five favorites from the Better Late Than Never Christmas Inspirations Linky Party. And by we I mean

We had such a hard time deciding on just five favorites — and believe you me, there were definitely more than five. I plan to be sharing some of the must-see, must-do Christmas projects from the party on my Facebook page through Christmas day.

Now, onto the favorites. (I’d love to have you foliow me on Pinterest, but if you see an inspiration you like in this post, please pin from the original source.)

You do not want to miss the gorgeous sitting room from Becca at Adventures in Decorating, inspired by a a plate she bought at HomeGoods.

Kelly of The Lily Pad Cottage created the most beautiful chalkboard art wreath using words from a Bible verse. After you check out the wreath, poke around the Lily Pad Cottage. Kelly is very funny and talented, and her home is beautiful.
