I usually do the weekly shopping on Mondays, but this week is a bit different. So I spent the time I am usually in town on other domestic pursuits. I ran the dishwasher and got a jump start on laundry day, which is tomorrow. Then I got out the sewing machine and made 2 lovely double sided table runners. See:
|A beautiful Nativity print. I'm going to use it for a family altar, as soon|
as I figure out where I want it!
|St. Nicholas on the other side. The runner will be on this side for only a few|
days before St. Nicholas Day, Dec. 6.
|The flip side, for Valentine's Day, but I'm thinking I might flip it to this side on the 3rd week |
of Advent, when we light the pink candle. We'll see!
I have been working on my holiday planner, as well.
Thanks to Joybilee Farm blog, I have gotten some new Kindle books on Advent and Christmas for FREE!! So far the ones that I have read have given me some ideas on how to celebrate and focus our family on the true reason for the season: Jesus. I'm still working on whether or not I want to try to do a Jesse Tree again this year, and looking to add other meaningful activities.
I'd love to hear from you and how you celebrate Advent and Christmas. You can leave a comment below, or "like" Homespun Inspirations on facebook.
Hope you have a lovely evening.
