My house is a mess, nothing is organized, and there is no food in the house but the laundry is washed, the dishes are done and the sheets are clean. Sometimes you just have to be happy for what is done. And I am happy. Busy but not too busy 24 hours a day.
I was feeling really tired for a while but I think I have my second wind and refocused desire to succeed. The store has a new manager in the building and everyone knows how difficult that transition can be. So while I have pictures of some arrangements that I have done, I'm going to save that for another post.
Today I am feeling the holidays. Whether Thanksgiving or Christmas, it doesn't matter. I'm making my lists and reasonable duties for the season. Last year I did a great spread for the family on Thanksgiving but this year I know I am going to have less time so we will eat at the in-laws and I'll make some deserts to bring.
Last year I made a bunch of gifts to give but this year? Maybe personalizing mugs from the thrift store with porcelain markers will have to do. So I have pulled together a list of inspiration to make my holidays a little easier this year.
Easiest quilt ever but still completely awesome:

As I was looking through my photos I realized that I was way more organized by this time last year. I had gift supplies bought and planned out already! So I need to get moving.
Anyone have any tips for making the holidays go smoothly?
