as if on cue...

christmas catalogs

these were tucked in our mailbox this week. glossy pages of holiday cheer - what could be better? i mentioned last year that i like to take decorating and diy inspiration away from the catalog pages packed with too-expensive items. last night, as we watched election results roll in, i sat by the fire with a pad + pen and jotted a stream of ideas. i am so excited to get going on some crafts. i think i'll make a trip to the dollar store this afternoon to begin stocking up.
