What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

New cheap ornaments...........


I love making things out of scraps and these little dudes are no exception. I made these this weekend out of left over muslin, some stuffing, discarded buttons and some thread from my vast collection of No. 8 perle cotton.


Besides these, I made some other ornaments from oranges I dried last year after Christmas. I hope to give my tree a little more primitive pizazz for cheap. (Is it possible for primitive to be pizazzed?) I am going to have one of my daughters make a popcorn and cranberry garland. We used to do that for years but then she moved out and it kind of fell by the wayside. She told me that she misses doing that so I'm definitely going to let her have at it.

Blessings, Cathi

Those are just too cute and I am beginning to really love primitive. I tried stringing popcorn one year and had a big mess. It was when the kids were little and that may have been part of the problem as they were eating and stringing and some did not get strung too good, but it sure was fun.
