It’s been one of those days…. you know, the ones where you walk out of the room for a minute and your two-year-old has colored the entire toilet in your new Physician’s Formula under eye concealer. The kind where, between the dog, two cats, and two rugrats, you’ve basically been up to your elbows in poop for the bulk of the morning. The kind where the car keys end up at the bottom of the 4 foot tall rancid, putrid outdoor trash bin where you should’ve thrown the dirty diaper instead. Yep, pretty darn sweet. It’s cloudy. Other than procrastinating, I haven’t been getting a thing done. It’s been a basically funky week in general.
But then I got in the car to take Max to school, and “New Beginning” by Tracy Chapman was playing on the radio. What a great song. It reminded me that just because a day starts out one way, there’s always time to turn it around. It’s actually something I’m always trying to teach Max. So, why, I ask myself, impose my funk on anyone else, when I can simply share some fun stuff that I’ve found while wasting time researching future projects and freebies?
First, I know it’s a little early, but I can’t help it, I’ve already got Christmas on the brain. It’s never too early to start your shopping, and, hey, while you’re at it, why not get your gifts wrapped and tagged early, too (that’s the part that I NEVER allow enough time for)? To get you started, here are some fun downloadable Dr Seuss gift tags from Seussville:
Next, if you have any leftover pumpkins and/or gourds from Halloween that haven’t been hacked into, why not make a pumpkin topiary to decorate your front porch or table for Thanksgiving?
Speaking of everybody’s favorite Domestic Diva, Martha Stewart, she has a plethora of fun projects on her website. Being that I have a new found addiction to felt, one I’m planning on trying soon is this felt fall berry wreath:
I could go on and on, but I think that will suffice for now. Does anyone else have any projects you’re planning for the season?
