A Merry Kitschmas Challenge


Hey I know it's only November, but I have plans to be organised this Christmas.... or as organised as one can be when a middle of the night phonecall could change everything.

So, I've decided that I'm starting really really early.

There's always too much pressure for the perfect gift, the perfect tree, the perfect decoration. It's time to embrace the imperfect.


I want to have fun with it, so I've decided that this Christmas, it's all about the kitsch.

I have to blame Vic for planting the Kitschmas seed in my brain at craft retreat. I've seriously been dreaming about it ever since.

If you'd like to enjoy a Merry Kitschmas, it's really simple. Grab the button and sign up to play along. There's no pressure and you don't even need to have a blog.

Make something kitschy, find something kitschy, op shop something kitschy. Blog it, tweet it, or share photos on Instagram - tag them with #MerryKitschmas so we can all find them, laugh along together, and get into the Christmas spirit.

Oh oh. I found something fantabulous the other day. Only problem is that I don't want to give it away! It's a stunningly awful set of recipe cards from the 70's. It's complete and I got them all for $5. Bwa ha ha ha, Crab souffle for Christmas lunch anyone?

I'll do my best. If I was in Melbs, my Grandma's vintage Christmas decorations would be perfect to photograph.....but I am, and wont be, in Melbs this Christmas (boo!) I may have some old photos.....I'll have to dig them out.
