So before I start "Un-decorating" (after all... Epiphany was on Sunday) soon... I'll share one more "good idea" that worked out well this year. I always try to figure out what to do with all those great Christmas cards. We don't have moldings over our doors and I don't want to poke holes or put tape all over the walls, so... I decided to try something new (and quick).
Take two command hooks... (my favorite thing lately)
Drape pretty ribbon (at least 1" thick) over doorway...
And clip cards to ribbon! (You can also decorate the corners. I used faux pointsettias on clips)
Voila! Cards out of the way and doorway is beautifully decorated with NO damage to the walls or paint. Easy peasy! (This could also easily work for birthday cards)
- Marijanna and Shaun
- We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.
