A really easy way to stay in the holiday spirit throughout the year is to decorate for more holidays. I love Christmas and the festivities of decorating and celebrating. The people in my life know that I can find any reason to celebrate and holidays are the perfect excuse. This year I am trying to stay in a festive mood throughout the year by decorating for each holiday or season.
The easiest and cheapest way I have thought of is to make a tablecloth for each holiday and switch them out throughout the year. I started with Thanksgiving and I have fabric picked out through spring.
Yet, another reason why I love my sewing machine. I am not limited to the choices at the store. I can pick whatever fabric I want for my table clothes and the possibilities are endless. Another idea I have for decorating through the seasons is having seasonally inspired paintings that are changed throughout the year. But, more about that later.
