Cheers! It’s January 2nd, 2014 and I have decided to start a blog about creativity and crafting. OMG! Am I really going to take this on? Yes, I am! I’m convinced this is the next chapter in my life. I’m wasting my talents by not sharing them, so here I go…
Who else is still on a “Holiday High”? I am! I don’t want to take down my Christmas decorations yet because I will miss all of the pretty white lights that light up my house and scream…Christmas is here! The trees are looking bare underneath as the gifts are delivered, not to mention the tree skirts are disheveled from our frisky fur ball. But still, I hold out, until who knows when. I won’t lie…it is a daunting thought…the idea of the after Christmas “take down”. Who’s crazy idea was it to put up 11 trees, all decorated in beautiful theme décor, any way? Oh wait…THAT WAS ME! Yep, I’m the “Crazy Christmas Lady” and my house during the holidays is known as “Weezy’s Winter Wonderland”. Man I love the holidays! I look forward to them every year! I never complain about all of the hustle and bustle, the crowds, the gifts, the wrapping, the parties, etc. If you are feeling “bah humbug” all you need to do is enter my house and you will be instantly in the spirit. How do I survive, and TRULY enjoy the holidays? It’s in my blood! I was born this way! But there is a method to my madness. First of all, I start thinking about the holidays in August. I start shopping in September and try to be finished by Thanksgiving. I take at least a week of vacation after Thanksgiving to decorate and wrap gifts. Then, I get to sit back and play “Santa” for the rest of the month. It really is that simple! For those of you that start your shopping on December 20th…STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! For those of you that max out your credit cards in a frantic frenzy to get all of your gifts purchased…STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! For those of you that dread December like the plague…STOP! LOOK! LISTEN! It doesn’t have to be that way. It really is possible to look forward to and enjoy the holidays. It might take some practice, organizing, and patience on your part, but it is possible to change your ways. Hey, maybe that can be a New Year’s Resolution. It is January 2nd, afterall…
