How did it become mid November? I am in the full swing of Christmas here. I have been making lots of Christmas gifts. I can't show you anything because my family reads my blog, so I was thinking I would photograph all of my gifts and then do a post Christmas post. I might be getting close to having everything made. I had also thought about banning the family from reading my blog until after the holidays. Not sure which one I will go with.
I snapped a few photos of last weeks Holiday Project hanging on my trees at the studio. I need to string up another garland for my mantle at home. I might start on it this weekend. I will be working on my outdoor light display this weekend as well. Now I don't turn it on until after Thanksgiving, but I like to get it all hooked up before. every year we try to make it look big but our front yard is down in a valley in the woods so when you drive by on the street it always looks small. We freak my dad out because he can't believe we have some many plugs going into one socket, yes, I am a bit like Clark Griswald.
"Is your house on fire, Clark? No, Aunt Bethany, those are the Christmas lights."
I'm still trying to talk Nik into the 15 foot tall blow up Santa for our yard that I saw at Lowes last week. I really think that would make the yard look better. I also want one of those old plastic blow mold Santa and reindeer sets. I just keep thinking that I will come across some one willing to give me theirs that's been in their attic for years. They used to be really popular.
Okay, enough dreaming of Christmas lights. What's on your list today?
I will be painting more mugs and some beads for an upcoming project.
Have a great day,
