I did something I don't think I have ever done before....
I started decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving!
With all the snow starting so early I have been playing Christmas music for weeks already! But I did refrain from putting up the tree. That is always done the weekend after Thanksgiving in our house. The kids want to make sure I don't do it without them.
I'm not gonna lie, it was kind of nice to decorate this year without lots of little "helpers".
This is a my season shelf that sits up about 8 feet in the air. I stood on a bar stool and then held my camera way above my head to get this shot.
I don't have any lights up outside yet either. I am thinking about having a Christmas open house(we are selling our home) So any early decorating I can do will help me later.
Remember this from last week? Well it's done and I wanted to show it to you. If you are looking for an easy project to do for Christmas gifts this would be an idea. I really mean it when I say I don't sew. I don't hem. But this is such a no-brainer even I can do it!
The most time consuming part is the cutting. You cut lots of squares. You will need 144 for this size quilt. You can use old jeans if you have some on hand. I often use jean and corduroy.
This one is for Malaina and these are "her" colors.
I am going to be part of the Blogging Christmas Open House over on the side bar. I would love to see your homes as well.
Are you doing some fun projects for Christmas? I would love to hear what they are.
I have a funny little random quote from Sophie. She was playing chess, yes, I said chess. (whatever happened to hi-ho-cheerio???)
Sophie: Mom, I won the game.
Me: You did?
Sophie: Yep, I was playing my imaginary friend and I beat her!! WHOO WHO!
Excellent! Stiff Competition!
