Starting the Madness

Over the last two weeks weather permitting the outdoor Christmas lights went up and the day after Thanksgiving so did the Christmas tree. Then it was time to tackle the indoor decorations. I do these all by myself with only occasional help from hubby, when needed. It is taking me longer this year because I purchased a number of new decorations (that I am altering one way or another) including a new wreath for the front door and one in the kitchen.

Not quite all of the decorating is done, but I had to stop so that I can get started on making Christmas cards. I made cards once before at Christmas 2 or 3 years ago and I want to do it again. It took me several hours to get the first one made, but that was partly because of my not quite knowing what I wanted to do. And then when I figured that out, I had embellishment malfunctions. Thank goodness I don’t have very many to make.
