Is it just me, or is everyone excited for the holiday season?! Thanksgiving is already this week; can you believe that? Time flies so fast when you don’t pay attention to it. …and Christmas is right around the corner.
Because I’m headed home this week for Thanksgiving, I decided to get most of the Christmas decor out of the boxes. I got a lot of my Christmas decorating done this weekend. My brother drove to town for a weekend visit, so he helped us decorate. Our theme/colors this year are “Winter Wonderland – a white and silver Christmas“! I had the chance to decorate the tree and put up our holiday garland. I still have final touches here and there on the tree that I have to work on this week, but it’s 80% done! Also, once I get pictures taken of the wreath and the stockings, I’ll have to share those with everyone. …and of course, the outdoor lights still have to go up. I’ll wait to do that for after Thanksgiving, hehe.
Here are some pictures of my unfinished Christmas decor. Hopefully, it’ll give inspiration to the ones who still have yet to decorate.
…and Maui is feeling MUCH better. She totally enjoyed watching all of us decorate, NOT!
She’s been taking all of her meds, and we’re not having any problems giving them to her. Phew! We even took her back to the dog park a couple of times this past week, and she absolutely loved it! It’s good to see her back on her feet being the little monster that she is.
This week at Pink Sketches, Jana contributed to the beautiful sketch collection over at Pink Sketches. The design of this sketch is very unique and creative, so head on over to join us for another FUN week! Besides, we love seeing your take on our sketches. Here is my take on Jana’s sketch:
Also, more GREAT news! This weekend, I was notified by the founders of ScrapStars that they are inviting me to be part of their design team as a regular! I love the work that the ladies create with every challenge issued, so I decided to hop on board with the rest of the DT! I can’t wait to start working on the challenges with these ladies. It’s gonna be one sweeeeet experience. Make sure to check back for my upcoming layouts.
…and because I’m trying to organize and move all of my scrap stuff into my newly renovated room (yes, it’s finally done), I’m going to host another RAK. Besides, since it’s the week of Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to show my thanks to all you readers for checking back over here at Red Oak Lines.
