|via Eddie Ross...he moved yesterday so I thought it was a good starting point.|
So yesterday, my post got deleted by my husband...he didn't mean to, but still!!!!!...it was my "It's Official" post because it was December 1...well now it is December 2 and I guess it is just one day more "official" than it was before. So I am going to try to recreate what I had written...

I am the kind of person that really can't get into Christmas until the Calendar turns to December....well now I am IN it....knee deep in boxwood cuttings for my wreaths and ribbon...I went on shopping spree at Hobby Lobby everything was 50% off! If I don't use the ribbon this year...weeeelll there is always next year, right? You see, this year I am going to put wreaths on my windows, something I have always wanted to do. I think I will put most on the outside front, but there is a part of me that wants them inside too.

Since this is our first Christmas in this home, it is really exciting to see what it will look like all prettied up for the holidays....I have ideas... BIG ideas....HUGE ideas....now if I could just get my fingers to work faster....
which brings me to this question...Do you prefer Artificial vs. Real for exterior wreaths??? There is a part of me that is thinking I will just make my front door wreath out of real cuttings,(which is the tradition in our family) and then buy the others. Why do I always feel I must make everything with my own hands???? Or maybe I will buy artificial cuttings and make my own artificial wreaths...that might be the ticket.
Now if we could only agree on where to put the tree.......hmmmm for another post I suppose.
Happy 2nd day of December!
