I love doing little easy crafty things with my girls, and they made the paper above at our church class 's Fall Feast (a yummy potluck) this weekend. It now has a spot of honor on the fridge! I hope to make some Happy Thanksgiving cards with them this week to mail to family--I'll show pics of those when we make them!
And the Christmas thing already?? Well, I normally don't get started decorating anywhere close to this early in the season! But since we trade off every year which holiday is spent at which family, and more often than not we aren't home for Thanksgiving or Christmas, last year we decided to decorate for Christmas right before we left for Thanksgiving holiday. Follow me so far? :) It made for such a stress free, enjoyable December! So, this year I'm getting a bit earlier start and just taking my time with it...even more stress free!!
The above pics are things I have hanging on one of my trees :)!!! I have several, all of them decorated differently...this will give you a little preview!
I decided that over the next several weeks, I'm also going to be giving LOTS of time-outs. Yup, you heard me! But not to my children (although with them home right now from their year-round school on track out, that remains to be seen!)....to me, myself, and I! I need a time-out every now and then to BREATHE, ENJOY, and RELAX!!! I think I'll take one later today with some hot cocoa and a book -- Yum!
THANK YOU to everyone who left a comment about my sunroom decorating!!!!!
The advice you all gave was amazing, and very much appreciated! I love having so many great decorating friends :). You're going to have to wait and see what I end up doing! I'll have pics for you after Thanksgiving of the end result!!!
So, what are you waiting for?! Give yourself a TIME-OUT today!! What will you do during your time-out???!!
