In my never ending quest to do something different, I ribbonized my kitchen cabinets instead of loading them with garlands. I have banned myself from pinterest, quite successfully, I might add, for two months now, so I actually have to think of things myself. The result is stuff like this.
I don’t know whether I love it or hate it. It was a giant pain to pintuck all those corners convincingly.
Sometimes I look at it and think, genius! Sometimes I want to rip it down immediately. Thoughts?
When I first got married, I bought a Nutcracker every year. Then I remembered that I don’t actually really like them, so I stopped. Now every year when I get to that box, I think, “Plekhcht! Nutcrackers. I have to put these lame things up? AND I have to put them somewhere the kids can’t reach them?” If I had any brains, I’d display them in the kid zone, wait 3 days, and then have to throw them all out for being trashed. They managed to amputate the skier’s arm within 20 minutes of unpacking this year.
