Yes, her blog is primarily dedicated to Christmas crafts, but there are also lots of other holidays that she creates projects for, like Easter, Valentines Day and Halloween. There are these cute and very easy Easter carrots, these retro pumpkins for alternative Halloween decorations that won’t go mouldy, and this collection of a range of Valentines Day projects. So you can create a little something for every occasion with Seasons Of Joy, not just Christmas!

We hope you’ll love this blog as much as we do. Sadly, we think Brenda has stopped creating and writing posts for it, but we still get to enjoy the content she’s already produced. All of her posts are fairly short, so they can be read very quickly. It’s certainly not too hard to just find yourself scrolling through and taking in all the little snippets she writes whilst looking at her gorgeous photos. Seasons Of Joy will definitely be the first place we look for some inspiration when it comes to crafting this season, and we think it’ll be your first port of call too!
