I never take down the Christmas stuff until tomorrow - epiphany. I wish we could leave the outdoor lights on through the dark days of winter. It's so fun to see the neighborhood glowing. I suppose there needs to be a special-ness of having them only lit at Christmas....I will miss them. Tomorrow I will carefully wrap and pack our special things. I leave the nativity scene for the end....it's the last to go....also the first to come out each year.
How about these lovely ornaments from Crate and Barrel? They make me so happy. I might leave them out until Valentine's Day.
I did work in my Ruby Tuesday journal today....just didn't get it finished or photographed. I'll show you soon. I'm thinking I will keep up the weekly exercise. I enjoyed maintaining my sanity by allowing a morning of self indulgence each week. If you are having a hard time getting back into your art you should come over and play on the Street Team. This month the prompt is also an assignment....sometimes I think having an assignment takes the Thinking out and leaves room for Doing. Come Brave the Elements with us.
