Good morning and happy Tuesday! Did you all have a nice Christmas? We had a wonderful weekend, full of family, food, laughter and fun. Saturday night was spent at our house, we had a great Christmas morning with the girls and then a late lunch/early dinner at Mom and Dad's. Yesterday Mom, Abie, my sister Jennie and I made our annual shopping trip to the Plaza and then had Christmas dinner leftovers last night :) I mean really, after a full day of shopping who can even think about cooking?
I know one thing, I'm ready to take down my decorations! Haha! If you know me at all, this wouldn't surprise you. In fact, as I type this the Rubbermaid tubs are sitting in the entryway staring back at me :) That's my goal for today. I'm going to get all the decorations down except for the big tree. That will stay up until New Year's Day.
I have another Project Lifey post today. This is a tip I picked up from Michelle Wooderson. She talks about how important a calendar is to her organization HERE. Since I'm not sure if a calendar will play an important part in my PL, I didn't want to spend a ton of on one. I picked this one up at Walmart for $4.
The only problem with it was that when I pulled the sticker off of it, it also pulled off some of the plastic coating and left it kind of bubbly. I tried to get a good picture of it. I had plans to decorate the front anyway :)
Nothing too fancy, in case I throw it in my purse or bag. I didn't want a lot of bumpy embellishments hanging off of it.
I cut the doily out of some graph paper and layered on a 1 3/4" patterned paper circle that I stamped with my FAVORITE stamp. On top of that, I adhered a Martha Stewart butterfly that I punched out of some music note paper.
This calendar isn't very big, but on the inside there's enough space for me to jot down a few notes about our activities from that day. Should be perfect for PL.
Did you get any fun crafty things for Christmas? Mike and the girls surprised me with a Kindle Fire! I'm still trying to figure it out :) I love to read so it was a great gift! I hope you have a FANTASTIC Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by today. I'll see you back here tomorrow! (wish me luck on dismantling the house!)
