It’s time for my 6th annual Christmas series… Create Christmas 2017! You’ll find lots of Christmas recipes, crafts, ideas, and inspiration on The Purple Pumpkin Blog this festive season!
Create Christmas 2017!
We’re half way through November already, and I am on our family holiday countdown to Walt Disney World for Christmas! 2017 has been one of the roughest, and toughest years for my family as a whole. I’ve touched upon it in various posts on my blog, and won’t go into it now. Suffice to say, this vacation can’t come soon enough – we really need a break away from it all.
Create Christmas was born in 2012, and I shared different Christmas (and New Years Eve) ideas every day through the month of December. Back then it was called Cook, Craft, Create Christmas, and over the years it has evolved to just Create Christmas, which is less of a mouthful to say! I still share recipes, crafts, and other creative, celebratory things!
My aim with Create Christmas has always been to share a blog post every day in December. Last year, I brought it forward into November as it just made more sense to do that, and this year I will be doing the same.
However, I know I cannot commit to a post a day right now. I will try and do as much as I can, but can I be honest with you? I am exhausted… as I said 2017 has been very tough. I keep going because I love my blog, and I love sharing my creative ideas with you. ♥ How will things work this year then? Read on…
What’s coming up…
Since we are going to Walt Disney World for Christmas, this year’s series will have a bit of a Disney spin on it!
It’s been a while since we had a new Build-an-Olaf printable, so that is on the cards; and there may or may not be a Frozen theme to this years printables.
Make sure that you are following me on Instagram – because I’ll be doing Stories and Lives direct from Walt Disney World! And of course there will be photographs!
I have three Instagram accounts:
- @MsPurplePumpkin – my personal account, where I’ll be doing my Instagram Lives (don’t forget you can catch me on replay!)
- @ThePurplePumpkinBlog – my blog account, where I’ll be doing my Instagram Stories (only available for 24 hours!)
- @DisneyTipsandTripReports – my Disney account, where I’ll be sharing my photos, along with Stories & Lives
I’m mixing up where I share stuff because I have an audience across all three accounts – follow one, two, or all three! If you’re a Disney fan, you’re probably not gonna want to miss out!
My cute little Christmas characters that I first created in 2015 will be back for 2017! Maybe in a slightly different way though…
Here they all are again – I love them just as much as when I first made them!
