Out With The Pumpkins and In With The Snowmen!
At least I waited two days to start decorating! It's crazy that Christmas decorations in stores were out the day after Halloween! Our local jeweler had their snowflake lights up at the same time! Give us a break!
I don't know about you, but I have a system. I decorate one room at a time (that's how I store the decorations - is that anal enough for you?) - and as I empty the contents of one box, I put all the stuff that was already in the room...into the box. I have to do it this way because I will forget where I put anything and everything!
We would always use decorations in excess for the kids as they were growing up. Well, the youngest is almost 17, so I guess I can hold back on the school made decorations from grades 1-6. (I still put up at least one ornament from each that they made in school!) I'm also a saver...I just can't let the homemade decs go!
If I had my act together I would take some pictures and include them for you to see. Oh well, another post. The planets must be aligned for me to get my act together.
Well, the living room is done! Now it's time for an eight hour break. If I'm lucky, and I get started at the crack of dawn, I just might get a room or two done by sundown tomorrow!
Happy decorating! If you are not decorating, just dust and vacuum...it's a great feeling to know that the bugs are all in one place - the Orek bag!
Check back soon and I'll let you know what I'm doing with all the leftover pumpkins!
