Cleaning Up After Christmas
It’s funny how a project can take on a life of its own. We recently started a mini makeover in a guest bathroom. Everything was rocking right along until I pulled a muscle in my hip. Now everything, including cleaning up after Christmas, has come to a slow crawl.
After a few days on the couch, I was determined ( and bored out of my mind!) to get a few things done.
Things that I don’t have to bend over, twist, or lift to do.
The first of which is getting my Happy Planner decorated for February.
I always try to keep my planner ready a least a month or two in advance.
I haven’t put everything back together since I took down all of the Christmas decor.
So this was the perfect time to put out a few gifts that I received for Christmas.
I love my new cookie jar!
During Christmas this corner sports a cute platter.
The rest of the year I have it decorated with this ceiling tin.
It’s perfect for displaying family photos, invitations et.
After putting it out this year, it felt a little too cluttered.
Trading the ceiling tin for this cute platter was the answer!
I love how bright and clean it looks.
I’ve also been working on gathering a few things for my Valentine’s table.
A few Valentine’s Day crafts have kept me busy too.
I promise to share them with you soon!
One last thing, I was on my friend Stacey’s FaceBook site, Poofing the Pillows and Friends, and they were discussing what everyone was putting on their front door after Christmas.
I went blank. For the life of me I couldn’t remember what I put on my door after Christmas!
Then, I saw a FB post from our friends in Biloxi, MS on how they were decorating for Mardi Gras and it hit me.
I usually put out a Mardi Gras wreath!
Some days I seriously need a keeper….
That’s it for my cleaning up after Christmas post.
Hopefully, things will be getting back to normal soon.
Whatever that is.
Until next time….
