Wait…..I thought I’d started EARLIER than usual this year!
And now I see that the countdown to Christmas has begun.
I mean really, I couldn’t believe it when Holiday Decorations began to appear in stores so that everything began to appear on the shelves at about the same time. Three occasions, bam bam bam, right in a row. I watched a Christmas Movie on Cable TV while waiting for Trick-or-Treaters! I couldn’t begin to make decorations THEN because, well, it just didn’t seem possible to be coming so SOON!
I especially enjoy making cards and decorations. Okay, we can get into all the debates in the world along the lines of “What Is ART?” or CRAFT vs. ART, and the merits of one over the other, but really? I like to make fun things that fit into the categories of both. And I REALLY enjoy seeing how I can recycle gently used items into another project.
I have a crafting table set up in the space between my open area kitchen and living room that has been there since Thanksgiving of last year. I have no plans to remove it anytime soon, because it is great when I have just a few minutes here and there to work on a project. I may move stuff to make room for holiday foods to be served, but the space is right in the middle of everything.
Here’s a sneak peek into what’s in my kitchen:
and I wish for you a safe and restful holiday season, too.
