Thursday Christmas Preps!
Let’s just say that getting the new TV room furnishings is probably not the best motivational component going into the holiday schedule. I had to try it out today in quiet. I liked it. I didn’t get nearly enough done. But, I enjoyed the day.
I spary painted some new-used picture frames I found for $3.00 a piece — THREE THAT MATCHED (Oh! what fortune!) to match the new room better…they were a lovely white-goldish patina, but they just got lost on the walls, so I painted them a flat black and then sanded the flourish parts so that the metal showed through again. Otherwise, the photos looked a little list on the black. I was fairly pleased with the results. After five holes in the wall, I even managed to get them level! We have a level tool I bought my husband a few years ago…but who knows how to use the thing? I really need to learn.
Tonight, I wrapped neice and nephew gifts.
Last night, got the teacher gifts done.
Moving on to the kid’s gifts soon! Yeah!
Can’t resist using some of my scrapbooking supplies for the lettering on the gifts this year. Staying creative may take a little longer, but it keeps me fresh.
Hope to get some baking done either tonight or in the morning for some etc. gifts with some pretty Martha Steward boxes I found at Wal*Mart.
Was hoping to get the mud room primed before Christmas–thing I’ve picked a color, but not sure if I’ll have extra time yet or not! Or that the recliner will release it’s hold on me!
Really valuing some moments of rest and down time today. But, trying to make up some for it tonight!
How are you guys? I always miss visits with friends during this season…yet, so much to do! Hopefully I will get caught up soon and can catch up with some laughter and silliness! I’ve heard the movie “Mama Mia” is a good chick flick. Anyone seen it? Anyone want to?
