Merry Christmas 2018

Posted by terrepruitt on December 24, 2018

I am not a fan of blow up decorations. They just lie there all flat when the fan isn’t on. They make a lot of noise. I am just not a fan. But I loved this one. I thought it was pretty ingenious that the reindeer can eat without any mechanics, it is just air. We are busy with Christmas things so I thought I would just pop this up really quick and wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Crazy-Shaped 2018 Christmas Tree

Posted by terrepruitt on December 21, 2018

This year we bought our tree close to home. We went to a parking lot where they had set up a tree lot. We bought a tree there before and it was fine. So we thought we would try it again. I walked around and was trying to decide between three trees. Looked and looked – got it down to two trees. Looked some more and made a decision. Well, the funny thing about our tree that seemed like it needed a little grooming – it needed a lot of grooming. I think it might have just been cut open before we got there because A LOT of the branches were still “up”. I mean it is normal for branches to “fall”, but this one was a doozy. It has branches that stick out about a foot from the other ones. It is funny. But we like it.

Here is our 2018 Christmas Tree for my Friday Photo today.

Ideas: Gift Tracking, Decorating, Wrapping, And More!

Posted by terrepruitt on December 17, 2018

There might be a few things you might want to be reminded of this year.

One thing I am already doing is starting a list for next year. That might sound odd since it is not even Christmas, but it is close enough that it is too late for some things. So, I have a folder on my computer that is “2019 Christmas” and I am starting to put ideas in it. I just saw something on Twitter that I want to make as gifts next year. There is no time to do it this year so it will have to be next year. So I have added it to my 2019 Christmas folder. And, this past year, I was even saavy enough to look at my 2018 Christmas folder in July because I thought if I had wanted to make something this year that I documented in my folder and I had waited until December it would be too late.  (There were no notes in there about making something that needed to be done so far in advance.)  Hopefully next year I will remember to look WAY before December because this craft will take a while!

My gift list that I keep all year long is proving to be a great thing. It is really important for me to note WHERE I have stashed the gift because I don’t have one location where I keep everything!

The card Christmas Tree and/or the Book Christmas Tree.

The scraps of wrapping paper that can become packaging for bags instead of tissue paper.  You can shred it or just use it as you would tissue paper.  And some ways to be perhaps even more “Green“.

GiveBackBox. If you are like me you are getting a lot of boxes delivered over this season.  And I posted about the company that helps people give back.

How do you wear your scarf?  There are accessory ways and a WARM way!

A quick way to use up the persimmons, make Persimmon Salsa.

I hope some of these things will help you out this Holiday Season.  We are moving into the homestretch with Christmas around the corner.  I hope you are all able to find some joy in the season.

What do you during the Holidays?  Is there a tradition you have?  Is there a tip or two you want to share?
