This is for all the ladies in the midst of brackets and basketball.
We can make our own March fun, right?
We can call it mantel madness, you down?
A couple weeks (yes weeks) ago I decorated the mantel for St. Patty’s Day.
What can I say, I am excited.
Once again I have to ask for photography forgiveness. Mantel is directly across from our fish tank. Hence, lots of blue glowiness and glares. I had lots of yarn left over from my St. Pat’s wreath, so I channeled my inner Martha and made lots of yarn poufs and called it garland.
Have you been decorating in green and gold?
Got a fancy mantel? I’d love to see it.
Right on the mantel.
I love decorating for holidays, and I change out our mantel decor for every major holiday like it’s my job.
Valentines Day is one of my favorites.
Just in case you are new to these parts, or maybe you just forgot…this is the area of the house where I request photo forgiveness. You see, the mantel is directly across from our 210 gallon tank. We are talking glare, blue overcast, and all kinds of glow. I correct as much as I can but at least you’ll know why it looks like we have a black light in the corner. Disco time.
How are you all gearing up for Valentine’s Day?
This weekend we took advantage of our free time and did some decorating.
Just a heads up…we can never get the lighting quite right on mantle shots. That has nothing to do with the giant fish tank sitting right across from it, or the fact that it gets zilch in the form of natural light. Did I say nothing? I meant everything….it’s my “problem child” as far as photos go.
I have always been a big fan of the free printable, but rarely do you find exactly what you are looking for. So this year, I got brave.
I made my own.
If you hate them and think they’re hideous, well it was my first try.
But if you actually like them….then you can have them.
Just click the “download” button right above.
Then click on the “Christmas Printables” link on the next page.
Then you can chose the one you want and print or save. If you get all crafty with these bad boys, make sure you send photos. I will be like your gramma and gush over your craftiness. Then I might pinch your cheeks.
If you need help, feel free to ho-ho-holler.
