With Thanksgiving officially behind us now, it’s time to crack out some crafty projects to help us get into the ‘Christmas Spirit’ – Starting with this adorable Fa-La-La Banner!
While I can see that your spirit EXUDES excitement for the holidays, it may come as a shocker to learn that I’m actually kinda Scrooge-ish when it comes to the actual decorating part. *CRINGE* …Yeah, I know. You don’t have to kick me twice – lol! It’s just something about pulling out all of the decorations from the attic and having to put them away nearly a month later. It’s such a ta-do! Plus, it doesn’t help that Juju ate a 3″ piece of branch off our artificial tree last year and then puked it up a month later – *face palm* I’d really like to avoid that if I can.
Now, don’t get me wrong… I DO LOVE THE HOLIDAYS! I love all the little moments the season has to offer, especially being together with my family on Christmas morning. Then there’s the spirit in the air and the decorations everywhere. Plus, I love watching Christmas movies like ‘A Christmas Story’ or ‘Christmas Vacation’ or even ‘Die Hard’ …Yep, raise your hand if you agree with me that Die Hard really IS a Christmas movie! *hehehe*
But I digress…
The main point of this blog post is to help both of us find a little decorating spirit by creating something new and crafty this year. So, the idea I’m gifting to you is…
