To put it simply: I've been busy!
Between holiday parties, meetings, programs, shopping, and selling a few more items in my shop I haven't had many spare moments. Yet, I'm not complaining. I love this time of year.
I admitted the other day that I've only put out minimal holiday decorations, but I did add one more that I want to share. It's crafty (kinda) and quick. It's a Christmas Card Display. Usually, I just stick the cards on the fridge, but this year I wanted to showcase them a bit more. Plus, I've had these (see below) for some time and wanted to put them to use.
Of course, I couldn't find the dang TINY clothespins at first so I had to search the whole craft room. In doing so, I stumbled upon a mini string of plastic Christmas Tree lights that I knew would work perfectly with this project.
The instructions are simple: tie the string ends together to make a big circle and hang it from two thumb tacks (about three inches apart) in the wall. Then, use the clothespins to hang you cards on the string of lights.
