Don't you miss the scent of your Christmas tree? Here's my secret. When we're taking down the tree, I sweep the needles and save some in a dish. Then I put a new bag in the vacuum cleaner and pick up the rest. Now, whenever I vacuum, the warmth of the motor in the machine warms up the needles and gives a familiar reminder of the family time of this past Christmas. The kids are getting older, they bring much joy, imagination, laughter to our home.
And when I don't feel like hauling out the vacuum cleaner to reminisce, I just give this bag a little squish and smell it again.
Stamps are from Stampin' up! many years ago. I don't know if it is still in the catalog.
I have been doing a bit of sewing this weekend. A few small projects in the works, just perfect to get back into the swing of things. Oh, and a nice clean sewing room without all those threads on the floor! yes, I can see the floor. bonus. The little foyer/vestibule at the top of the attic stairs was transformed into a lounge area today with popcorn, goodies and a movie. Lollipops. Don't underestimate the power of a lolli. I always make sure we have some on a long car ride. Keeps them busy for a bit.
k, I'm getting a bit off topic. And while I am, how 'bout those shoulder pads in the Golden Globes!
