Do you realize that Christmas Eve is in one month from today?! I’m glad I’m getting a head start on my holiday decorating, and today I wanted to share what I did with my stockings this year.
I bought the stockings from Target: two big beige & gold ones for John and I, and two smaller knit ones for the kitties. I bought all four of the photo ornaments from Michael’s, although the smaller ones I used for the cats came in a set of six. All were hung with clear Command Hooks that I’m pretty sure were meant to be utensil hooks.

I was inspired by what Mayra did to her stockings in this post from her ‘life is bananas’ blog back in 2011, and then again in this insta. It’s amazing to me that inspiration can lie dormant inside of you for years, waiting for the right time to surface. I’ve been so excited to decorate my new apartment for December, and with my pink tree and now these stockings, it’s starting to look like how I always dreamed my holidays would. I’m creating things now that have been influenced by my childhood Christmases from the past, but are reflective of my adult Christmases of the future — with my own family.
I’m thrilled for these next few weeks, my first Christmas in the new apartment with my new man, and to share more of the Big Creative Magic this time of year brings! Stay tuned!
