I Find Your Lack of Cheer Disturbing!

If you haven’t started decorating for the holidays yet, I’m not sure what you’re waiting for! Maybe you were waiting for the perfect Star Wars diy snowflakes, in which here you go! We’re hosting Christmas at my house this year so the decorating has been on full blast but now that I’ve found these snowflakes the decorating just might take a turn for the nerdy!

Fresh sangria all around!
