DIY Santa Mug + Handmade Holidays 2016

Santa deserves a great snack, while zooming around the world in one night making kids happy.  I think he would love the mug we created from him.

I have teamed up with a group of bloggers and amazing sponsors to bring you an amazing give away.
But first a little about the project.  I'm getting so super excited about the holidays.  I must admit, the last few years I'd get so busy and put the tree up really late and really didn't leave time to enjoy the decorations or enjoy the joy of the season long enough before putting everything away.  Not this year. I've started to purchase new items, and they may or may not be already on display.  Thanks to a few of my favorite shopping spots this year we will have a great holiday decor and we can't forget about santa.
