Now that Christmas is over, I am always ready to clean up and "get organized!"
Today, December 26th is my husband's birthday, so I don't get all crazy taking down decorations yet, he still likes the tree up for his birthday, and since he always helps me put the decorations away, I don't think that's what anyone would like to be doing on their birthday anyway.
I'm always on the look out for unusual containers for my art supplies.
I feel more inspired when things are out where I can see them.
This old tin holds new packages of sewing needles.
It's not that I don't like Christmas, I'm just ready to start a new year, and living in a mild climate where some days are so nice you can open your windows & doors, it's hard not to rush things a bit.
I guess it's always been a joke with us since I've been married, that the day after Christmas I'm ready for Spring!
I was surprised to see this, but it looks like my lavender plant is ready for Spring too!
So, goodbye Christmas 2010, it was lovely, but I am looking forward to and ready for a new year to begin!
Right now though, I'm heading out to celebrate my sweet husband's birthday!
When do you take down your Christmas decorations?
See you soon,
