stomach flu binge then Christmas binge

November 30, 2010

Thanks­giv­ing was fan­tas­tic, lots of fam­ily and fun.

HOWEVER, I did get the stom­ach flue not ONCE but TWICE in the past week. Tor­ture. On the up side…I don’t think I gained weight over this hol­i­day. BLAH.

BUT, we are cur­rently happy and  healthy and mov­ing on to greener pastures…LIKE CHRISTMAS!

Thought I would share some MERRY things I am work­ing on this week for our home…

#1  I am not a crafty per­son really.…but around Christ­mas, I tend to do a craft or two because it enter­tains my 2 year old for at least a hot sec­ond AND its pretty cheap. So, I was read­ing BHG and saw this wreath.…NO, I am not going to make the wreath, but I am going to do the yarn balls with Ella and hang them all over my home. We will see…

#2 Also, I am using craft paper & oranges in my Christ­mas decor this year…again because they are cheap. See? Crafty.

#3 I bought these dish rags for 49 cents each at IKEA. I think I might com­bine a few and make a Christ­mas pil­low? It’s kind of Swedish look­ing. And I am Swedish. So that is good.

Ok, that is all I got. I am all out of ideas.

That is not true. I also want to do a red and white striped end table for 508 next. Too much?

Cheers!

**NOTE: Imme­di­ately after writ­ing this post, my hus­band informed me he did not like the oranges and the red.…so I took it all down. What a great wife I am. Actu­ally, we just ate all the oranges…
