I know, I know, it's too early to be talking about Christmas; but is it really? Believe it or not, it's about six weeks away. In my family, we always put up the tree and such Thanksgiving weekend, but a month doesn't seem long enough to enjoy the festive decorations. Since I've had my own house, I've left everything up well into January, but that just puts me in the "Is she crazy category?" Though, one might reason two weeks into November would warrant questioning my sanity. But here's the thing. I love this time of year. I love fall. I love the cooler weather. I love how everything and everyone seemingly comes alive. So, why not enjoy it just a little bit earlier?
I created a playlist on iTunes for Christmas music and away I went. It took a lot longer to get everything up than I had intended, however, there was a bit of a learning curve on some projects. One in particular I doubt I'll ever do again, but it's pretty neat, so who knows.
I used this r-e-a-l-l-y long strand to add some festivity to the upstairs. However, this was NOT easy and about half way through I nearly gave up. But I was also half way done, so I push through the rediculousness to get this project completed! What do you think? At least, I had the fore-thought to double it up before beginning!
