Blogmas time! Yay! Blogmas will be pretty much the same as Blogtober in October and Thankful Natters in November. I'm hoping to post every day, now through Christmas, with some festive mention in each post. I debated whether to start now or wait till Dec. 1, which is when most people seem to start, but decided to dive right in before I lose my blogging groove.
So, on this day after Thanksgiving, we were pretty lazy around here. Hubby watched TV and worked on the Christmas puzzle, and even took a long nap. Casey pretty much lounged in his room and played video games. I spent a lot of time in the morning browsing crafty websites and taking advantage of Black Friday deals. I had to quit looking when I started spending too much money. Doh! I did get some good deals though!
And I did order one of the Satin Suzie Christmas samplers. Did you? I just checked and there are still some in stock.
I packed up the Thanksgiving decorations today. Didn't get the Christmas stuff out yet though. I hauled the tree down from the attic later this afternoon but have not put it up yet. We have an old fake tree, not even pre-lit. I always put it up and let it stand bare for a day or so, until the cats get over their initial curiosity and leave it alone. Maybe I'll put it up tomorrow morning. I'm not too sure how much decorating I want to do otherwise. I go back and forth so much on it. I think last year was pretty minimal. I always get crabby in the hauling out of all the boxes on decorating day, and then especially crabby when it comes time to pack it all up again. For some reason, trying to fit everything back into the carefully stuffed totes overwhelms me. I guess we'll see how I feel tomorrow or Sunday.
I finally did some card work in the craft room again! One of them I can't show you yet, but here is the other one . . .
The lighting in the pic doesn't do it justice. You can't see the slight shimmer on the embossed snowflakes. I really like this one though, and so simple to make!
This is the one hubby made last week.
Well, I'm off to bed now. Casey says he wants to go shopping with my tomorrow morning. I'm kinda hoping he changes his mind in the morning. Hubby's gone with me the last couple times and while it's nice to have company once in a while, sometimes I just really want to get in and get it done quickly on my own. We also have to go to the family get together at my brother's tomorrow afternoon. I was looking forward to it before but now, as it draws closer, as always, I'm not wanting to go. I'm just so anti-social in my old age!
Alrighty, then, off to read and then sleep.
Did you dare the crowds for some Black Friday shopping?
Did you put your tree up today?
Tell me something Christmas-y!
