... is to stick to the statement I made a couple of weeks ago:
I said, out loud, where people could hear it,
" I'm not buying anything for Christmas decorating this year except lights
and the live tree and/or greenery."
(And an unrelated thought, "Oh how I wish I could whitewash my brick!)
I said it. And I mean it.
(probably won't need quite this many lights!)
I've been simplifying Christmas for the last couple of years but this year we are using what we have or our noodles to come up with something that doesn't require a trip to the store.
I have donated a lot of Christmas decor the last few years but I still have too. much. stuff.
I'm not being Scrooge-y.
I love the season but I want to focus on that
and not get to wrapped up in overdoing the decor.
Tall orders for me.
I have been known to repaint a whole room in a day or two
at the beginning of December in order to decorate it for Christmas.
So I guess after making that bold statement above
I'm going to have to DIY some of these:
I also have not started decorating one. single. thing!
I know ... #gasp
I went to the beach for Thanksgiving
and I've still got to refocus after all the seafood and glorious sunshine.
Some of us are having a hard time getting back to reality....
