I made the mistake of attending their annual Homes for the Holiday tour. It sucked the Grinch right out of me.
I was so inspired by the creativity of the Sailors’ festive home and Dawn Sailors’ many homemade decorations that I am actually planning to recreate some of the pieces I saw in their home. Me and a glue gun — nothing good can come from this.
I put up my tree every year (OK, most years), but I have other Christmas decorations that haven’t seen the light of day in years. I have actually pulled the totes and boxes from the back of the closet where they had been exiled, just so I could take inventory of what all I had for decoration planning purposes.
To make matters worse, I am already planning my Christmas gift list for family and friends.
I am looking forward to shopping for goodies to make them happy and excited to wrap them up all pretty.
I’m looking forward to making candy for my friends and coworkers. I think I might actually take a dish to the holiday get-togethers this year.
I just don’t know who I am anymore. It’s gotten so bad I think I might even send out Christmas cards this year ... nah!
