A selfie, the weekend, and a prize

Christmas is on, people. It is ON.
A selfie for Helena  :o)
 

Me (calling up to the roof top): "Did you remember to plug them in before you started - just to make sure they all work?"
Doug: "Uh...no?"
Me: "Remember last year...one of the strands didn't work..."
Doug: "Eh. They'll be fine!"
And they were. We have Christmas lights on our house. :o)

While Doug was on the roof, I busied myself indoors. This cardboard reindeer is on year number three, and he got a new set of antlers this year {also thanks to Doug!}.

We had an awesome FOUR-day weekend, a nice quiet Thanksgiving this year, ate way too much food, decorated our house for Christmas, did a bunch of creating, and I have way too much left to do to be going back to work today!

Yes, I actually made stuff, and I have some things to share with you this week! I'm also throwing in a little giveaway:
 

These little foam stamps are perfect for stamping with ink or acrylic paint to make your own wrapping paper, cards, dishtowels... In fact, I made some stamped dishtowels that I'll share with you this week. Be the first to claim them and they're yours! Just tell me in the comment section that you want them and I will pop them in the mail for you this week. {Edit: Stamps have been claimed by Patty!}
 
Phew - scattered, huh? Or maybe it's just my brain that's scattered this morning.
But it's all good...all good...
I need to sit down and do some serious list making today!
Have a great week, my friends.

HI Deb, love your antlers and general festive cheer. I've noticed crafty reindeer popping up all over the place this year - what a trend setter you are

The stamps look cute,Deb....but no more stamps for me....I have far too many already.
It really is beginning to look like christmas at yours.

Patty Branco said...

I'd LOVE the stamps. I'm wrapping in brown paper this year a la Pinterest. They'd make them look festive!

Susi said...

And just like that is Christmas time. Cute selfie! Interested to see the towels.

Mel said...

Cute decorations and selfie!

Beverly said...

You are adorable! Glad Doug's confidence in the light strands was well placed ;)

Audrey said...

Deb, your house looks adorable! I love the "JOLLY" blocks. So cute!

Your house is looking really festive! Glad you had a nice 4 day break :-)

It seems strange to see sunshine in Christmas photos! Our decorations will be going up at the weekend. We're wondering if coco will leave the tree alone again this year.

Karen said...

We did a lot of decorating too, but I haven't had a chance to take any photos. No stamps for me, please. Like Jacky, I have way too many already!

Margaret said...

so many pretties! Christmas is off limits here until after my girl's birthday on Friday.

Irene said...

Loving the selfie. Your home looks cheerful Deb.

I remember when you made those jolly blocks! And I absolutely adore that selfie.
I'm going to decorate this weekend.

I'm loving your decorations and I'm pleased your lights work. For the first time ever I forgot to check my lights before I put them up but I was lucky too :) x

alexa said...

Your home looks wonderful - I smiled at the deer and antlers, for my grandfather has a real one of these halfway up the stairs whose looming shadows in the candlelight used to scare me!

Gail said...

Your home looks so nice and Christmasy and what a delightful selfie.

Hope you had a great thanksgiving! We thought of you all. xx
