Do you ever lose your crafting mojo? Or maybe we just get busy with other things and push crafting to the back burner? Whatever....I have been doing other fun things.
Halloween was a lot of fun! We had hundreds of trick or treaters and the weather was perfect. I also learned something new, that in all my years of pumpkin carving I never even thought of. Before lighting the candle in your jack o lantern, sprinkle some cinnamon in the lids. The aroma was divine. Kinda like a pumpkin pie baking. Make sure you try it next year :)
I also did an Ikea trip, though this time we went to the Ikea in Michigan. Ikea decorated for Christmas is so much fun. I loved the addition of Christmas trees to their room displays! I saved up my birthday money so that I could splurge on the Ikea trip. Everything we bought is for Christmas decorating, and I can hardly wait to start. By tradition, we wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start. I love waking up early, drinking coffee and eating left over pie and then starting to decorate!! And the best part is I can officially listen to Christmas music as much as I want. Not to say I am not listening on Pandora right now :)
When do you start decorating your homes for Christmas?
