She has Christmas Craft Anxiety

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…

Chestnuts - 16

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.

    I agree with the anxiety of Christmas decorating. I told Jon as he walked out this morning, maybe a little more frustrated with me than usual, that I would get it all done, and fast!

    And, as I left the other night, I regretted not taking you up on the DDP.

    And, my wreath is coming along quite nicely.

    This post is meant for me, huh. I have, "I haven't seen Alison in toooo long anxiety!" What are you doing today?

    I totally agree an that is why just let me children do the decorating and don't take pictures of my house to share:)
