Much to Mr. Sugarplum’s chagrin, I’m one of those people that takes the Christmas decor down as soon as the calendar turns to December 26. You know, the type that follows around a person ripping open their package with a trash bag. I’m responsible for everything but the tree and outdoor lights (the hub’s department). Which means all the decor is now boxed up, except the tree and outdoor lights remain on display indefinitely. Don’t be surprised if I show Valentine crafts hanging from a Christmas tree this year.
Apart from baking and wrapping gifts, I didn’t do one single creative thing during the break. Instead of being grateful for free time while the kids watched movies, I joined them. Instead of running to the computer while they played, I curled up on the couch with my new Nook Tablet (thanks babe!) But as much as I adored our Pink Christmas and down time, I’m ready for a clean slate and a return to creativity. I love the bare, minimal look of our house after all the decor comes down. Sometimes I long for pure, clean interiors.
