Christmas is fun… right? A lot of fun? Even though the traffic is a pain. Shoppers are rude. The lines are endless. Christmas is still fun… What makes Christmas fun for you?
For me: Christmas is fun, because –
1. I love spending time with my family. This is the time of year they spend a little less time away from work to go shopping with me. I love the shared secrets about what they are getting each other for Christmas. I love them… so much, my heart hurts. I wonder if that is how Mary felt when she first looked upon her baby boy.
2. I like to decorate my house. – The one time of the year where I really go out of my way to make everything look a little more cozy and bright and colorful. There is just something peaceful about putting up the Christmas tree and sitting on the couch, drinking hot cocoa and looking at the pretty ornaments and lights. I think that is why Thanksgiving comes right before the Christmas holidays… it puts us into a grateful attitude.
3. I enjoy the cooking, baking and the prepping for Christmas Day. The cookie baking. The craft making. The present shopping and the present wrapping. Christmas always seems to come too fast and it always ends too quick. The year always flies by too quickly and before I know it – Christmas is here again and Oh, What Fun It Is. I love the Christmas Spirit.
Today, I am going to do another Chalk Couture project. I found another tray at the thrift store. This one has a marker board bottom. It’s a plain colored, light, balsamic wood. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to paint it. I kinda like the plain wood.
I am going to use the November Club Couture transfer – Oh What Fun.
***You can join the Club Couture and every month, you will receive an 8 1/2 x 11 inch transfer, three coordinating colors of Chalk Paste singles, and step by step instructions to create a fun, cute, darling, finished project, like I do… like I have.
Visit my Chalk Couture website to join… http://www.chalkcouture.com/PositiveJourneys/club***
and I am going to use Candy Apple and Green Envy chalk paste – hopefully.
Here’s how it came together…
