11/24/09 Holiday Cheer

I'm channeling my creativity (so I don't take it out on the Thanksgiving pie this year)…I just finished making my annual Christmas decoration exchange items. I was behind again this year in thinking of an idea (as if I'm ever ahead), so I drug (dragged?) DH to the stores with me this weekend looking for inspiration. There wasn't much to inspire out there this year, so as usual, I made up my own. We've been doing these so many years I realized I've never made anything for the kitchen, so that was my inspiration. I made a decoration to hang from a cupboard or other place in the kitchen with a pick, handmade bows and some cookie cutters and ribbon…OK, not all that creative, but I had to make a bunch of these and mail them out soon and these went together quickly (pic attached).
Could you hear me? I was playing the holiday music and singing my way through my crafts the last two mornings (much to my family's complaints). I know, I know, I'm the first one to say when I'm in the stores 'What's up with the Christmas music? It's not even Thanksgiving yet!!!' , but it sure got me in the mood to make Christmas decorations. So if your feeling a little blah heading into the holidays (been hearing a lot of that lately here), crank up the music, make a craft or bake some cookies (and freeze them, of course, so you won't be tempted)…it will get you in the spirit, I promise.

Put them all in bikinis and that will keep you from eating them!
I took the leftovers and made a whole string of holiday cookie cutters with picks and ribbon at each end for over my kitchen sink window (pic attached). I think I need to get some more ribbon and picks and pull the center up with a big bow or something for a focal point. You know me, over-decoritis is my affliction when it comes to the can never have too many holiday decorations!

Thanks gals...and Happy Holidays (Stay out of the cookies Dz!). Oh, and DH didn't like the window one (OK, I did ask him)...guess it needs some work. -BG
