So, I had sworn I was going to have all the Christmas decorating done by December 1, so I could spend the next 3 weeks crafting. Yea well, big dreams with one small toddler! I have been working most of the day on finishing the big Christmas tree (only 100 ornaments left to go!). And I am still chugging along on that tinsel branch. It takes a long time to wrap that thing, and of course, the birds still need glittering.
In light of my crazy desire to be done with a few projects, I sent my husband to the fabric store to hunt down some Merry Modernica fabric. I wanted it about 2 weeks ago, but Jack was acting crazy in the fabric store, and they take FOREVER in there. (Is it like that everywhere? I swear you can never get fabric cut and paid for in less than an hour around here.)
My husband comes chugging in the door with like 5 pounds of fabric and declares, "Dear, I went a little crazy in the fabric store." Did he ever! He bought me 5!! yards of the white Merry Modernica, I think 5 yards of the red, and a yard each of the cute flannels at the top. The pink measuring tape ribbon came from Michaels, in the scrapbooking stuff.
I would have only bought myself a yard. What a great husband.
And for the 25 days of Christmas, a pink bottle brush wreath, ebayed many moons ago. It is a lot pinker than it looks in our flourescent lights. (Great for the environment, not so great for lighting I think.)
Just a few more yards of that Merry Modernica and I could make Christmas curtains for that window...
