The Holidays Made Easy

i was asked to speak at church about designing on a dime
i had an idea to show the gals how you could decorate for the holidays
in a simple way.

i thought i would share with you what i did.
some of you may not want to decorate an entire house, some may not have the desire to spend a ton of money doing so and some may have the desire but no energy :)

i believe that the entrance to your house is important
it's like first impressions.

a table or a chair on your front porch or in your entry way is a great
place to display simple holiday statements.

let's begin...

fourth of july



and my personal fave...

i can't say enough about the use of greenery.
it makes a difference everywhere.

at christmas time, all you have to do is add a sprig of green and a ribbon and wha-la

I'm not going there.

our little posie mc poserson started preschool thursday.
much to her dismay.

and she refused to let me take her picture (on that day)
so i don't have any, except for one very sad looking one where she is clutching her dolly.

i dropped off a crying 3 year old and picked up a very happy camper.
an hour later when she informed me that she's not going back.
nope. not even for a popsicle.

ugh. stubborn, beautiful baby!

It's HOT!!!

and i've had it!
i've tried sewing these blocks but it's too hot
so i didn't get far...

and i think the heat has affected my head.
the other day (after picking masyn up from school)
we had to run out. AGAIN. and she stopped me.

yep, apparently i had been running around town like this.
nice! keepin' it classy people!

 and on another note...
we've lived in this house through TWO summers and i JUST realized
i had blinds in the kitchen.
yep. i forgot that they were tucked up under the valances.

seriously. it's the heat.
i'm miserable!!!
