Good Afternoon, Quilters!
Today we are going to discuss creative Christmas decorations, but before we get started…
Re-Charging My Batteries
In case you haven’t noticed, I took a three week leave of absence from blogging. This little break was unplanned and somewhat unintentional. I have been extremely busy and preoccupied with a wide variety of quilting and other pursuits. While I didn’t realize I needed a little extra down time, in retrospect it’s obvious that I did.
I needed to re-charge creatively and physically. (Read more about re-charging your creativity HERE)
Anyway…I’m sure YOU all understand.
Creative Christmas Decorations
One of the creative pursuits came in the form of a challenge. My husband suggested that we change all of our Christmas decorations this year. For the past 8-10 years, we have used the same decorations in the same places throughout the house. While we loved the decorations, we were in a decorating rut, using the same decorations in the same place every year.
Our goal was to buy just a few new decorations and re-arrange some of our old ornaments to create an entirely new look.
It was challenging not to use our tried and true favorites! But decorating was really fun this year-because it felt creative again!
We’ve already decided to do a new look next year!
I think many of us get in creative ruts-doing the same things in the same ways over and over. Whether it’s blogging, quilting, holiday decorations, wrapping, cooking….
Perhaps it’s time to take a break? Maybe not three weeks, but what about three hours?
Re-think your routines?
Try something new?
What about YOU?
Are YOU having fun this holiday season?
What is the best part of the holiday for YOU?
Is it wrapping presents? Baking? Making gifts?
We’d LOVE to hear how YOU are creative at Christmas!
