poetry and prose about place

getting ready for Christmas #1

with 10 comments

For me, November began with a hurried Halloween and a week-long trip to California.  Once I returned, I promised myself full attention to getting ready for Christmas.  At the risk of behaving like the stores who run Christmas music in November, I am going to share some of my Christmas projects.


This activity is fueled somewhat by Pinterest.  I discovered it quite recently and find so many creative ideas there!


My first project was a paper garland for our entry.  Cardinals and white ribbon.

    • Hi Gemma. No, I used clipart but if I decide to do this again, I would like to do the artwork for the cards. Thanks! Jane

  5. Lovely. I’m enjoying your posts, Jane. I don’t have the time to read them all, but I love to ‘pop in’ once in a while and see what you’re up to. I always enjoy your adventures and your thoughts remind me to pay attention and enjoy what’s around me, to slow down when I can, and breathe. All the best to you and yours!
