Christmas is over

Hope everyone had a great weekend and first half of the week!

Now that the holidays are over, I’m expected to take down all my Christmas decorations. I really wish I could just leave them up all year but the hubby thinks they need packed away. I hate taking them down. I love putting them out but dread the clean up. First, I love to have them up, I think it makes everything so pretty with the twinkling lights and snowmen and glitter and other shiny objects. Second, there are just so many of them. I have managed to convince him to let me keep one tree up year round which I decorate for all holidays. I guess I just got to take it one tree at a time until all decorations start making a year round appearance. Hahaha

A good thing about the holidays being over is that I have time to craft again! I’ve spent the last few days setting up my craft room and finishing a few projects. The room is still a work in progress but hopefully not much longer and ill have is almost the way I want it. The few projects I’ve accomplished are about 2 dozen leg warmers 2 pillow case dresses and my first tutu.

The last I sent to my Nanny. She loves all the crafty stuff too, so I thought it would be a fun little I Love You gift.
Tomorrow I’m busy with the PTC but I hope to get to make more items the next few days.

Hope the rest of the week goes well for all!

    I agree that it isn’t fun to take the decorations down. A few years back I decided to leave my Christmas village on top of my hutch and my Easter village on my curio permanently, now the problem becomes dusting them. Ha, always something.

      Yes the dusting would not be fun! I have a few glittery decorations and it seems to constantly be everywhere, I guess I wouldn’t mind too terribly to put those away.
