I could have gotten upset. I could have gotten really depressed because I can’t really afford to decorate my apartment for Christmas. Instead, I’m excited. I’m excited because I’m going to take on yet another craft project and decorate my home with my own creations. I have a TON of left over gift bags, wrapping paper, Bristol board, ribbon and even some fabric from my Halloween costume project to make pretty much everything.
I will still have to buy lights but I actually think that my Dad has a spare pair at home. I’m not even really planning on buying a tree. I’m planning on putting up some sort of tree mural where I can also display my Christmas cards so that I don’t need to make TOO many ornaments. The ideas were coming to me so quickly that I honestly didn’t even have a second to be sad about not being able to buy my decorations1.
I’ve already downloaded some templates, and I’m planning on picking up everything from my parents’ place tonight when I go over to pick up the car. I’ll try and update soon on my plans once I get some drawings done… but I have a feeling this is going to be just awesome.
What are your plans this recessionary Christmas?
