Making a List and Checking it Twice

Posted by Picasa

This week I started working on Christmas decorations. Since we moved we decided to change up our decorations to fit the house. Though different, the plan for this year is pretty simple to avoid going overboard and having a tacky mess! We're sticking with lights trimming the house and flowerbeds, wreaths hanging from each window and a large one on the front door. I still need to decide what to do at the front entrance. I have a few days. The plan is to have it all up next weekend.
I pinned a really cute wreath on Pinterest and decided to do my take on it. I'm still playing around with ornaments and picks, but I'm loving the repurposed golden R and chartreuse (this year's accent color) ribbon. The other outdoor wreaths will also be repurposed.
While the vinyl saying is not technically for Christmas, I've been meaning to hang it for a while and I'm always happy to check a few things off the to do list. A few years ago I discovered how practical vinyl art is, especially text, because it covers a large area and is much cheaper than paintings or a canvas print. LIttle did I know how difficult it would be to hang all of these individual letters on a curved, textured wall, but I did it. I think know it's a bit crooked (by about an inch), but I resisted the urge to take it down and do it again. I'm going to try NOT to let it drive me bananas.
Crafting keeps me sane, so right now I'm feeling pretty good!
