Holiday season is upon us. Do you have grand plans? Do you get excited or freaked out? I get invigorated, I feel a sense of renewal. A feeling of winding down after an exhaustive summer. Time to settle in, get ready for hibernation. Set a fire, do some knitting, make soups, pull out the blankets and down comforters. I’m so ready to nest. It’s also my busiest time. Lots of aprons and napkins to be made, markets to sell at. Usually I work at 3 to 4 markets. I end up missing a lot of fall festivities. I always want to host a Christmas holiday gathering and fail at that. Too much to do and too exhausted after doing it. So this year I’m doing 2 markets and focusing on online sales. I hope to achieve my holiday party dream. It doesn’t even have to be a party, but a gathering.
Holiday decor is already all around us. It’s not Halloween and Christmas decorations are available. I read somewhere the earlier you set up your holiday decor the happier you will be. Nah... I’m a true believer and stickler for no decorations until after Thanksgiving. So will you set up and decorate before or after Thanksgiving? You can always ease into it. Blend fall into Thanksgiving Into Christmas. Or maybe just have some simple decor to add some festiveness to your home. Enjoy the season. Bring the outdoors in. Here are some of my favorite ideas so far that I’ve seen.
