Ah! Let the countdown begin. My advent calendar is ready, the stockings my mother-in-law made me have been hung with a semblance of care, and my tree is up and lit…but not decorated.
I can’t decorate it because I don’t know where to start. I’m having total Christmas Craft Anxiety. And you know who I’m blaming? Pinterest and Instagram. Yeah. People keep posting all of these amazing ideas, and then I look around at my house and my meager supply of decorations and I’m totally overwhelmed. Not to mention broke. Ha! I realize, as always, these concerns should mark very low on the worry-causing totem pole, but I prefer to focus on things of little substance. Anyway, I have so many ideas and want to do so many things, I don’t know where to start!
Huge sigh. And if you’re thinking this tree is my tree…
Well this is just a baby tree I borrowed from a neighbor so I could decorate it. Though I do like that Christmas topper, which is just a little ball of yarn wrapped in a circle with some plastic figures stuck in it. Maybe I should do my whole tree with those?!
Anyway. I just wanted to say hi. I hope you’re all doing well. I have like 10 tutorials to share with you, if I just get to them. Maybe you should just come over and we can do some Christmas crafts together. I have soda.
