holiday brainstorm

The last few holiday seasons I have felt like a sad worm. I am not in the spirit and I can't feel it. I can't feel the sentiment, the ease, the present. I try so hard to feel it, but no matter how much I do, I end up ruminating on how my try-to-feel feels aren't working.

So I've decided this year I'm doing something different, I'm going to make it. I'm going to make the holidays. Instead of trying to feel the sentiment I'm going to make the sentiment. Instead of dreaming of the things we have done, I'm going to do new things. So now whether I feel it or not, I did it. I participated. I didn't wait to be swept away by visions of sugar plums, I made the fucking sugar plums (well not really), but you get the point.

So that's it. And it's going to be good. I'm super pumped. I'm already getting my Christmas craft plans together. I'm making these badass glitter feathers too, by the way. Oh. And I have a cold. But it's holiday time, so it's ok.

How about you? Do you have some fun holiday plans or traditions?

Love, C 


  1. Glitter feathers. GLITTER … FEATHERS.

    Why oh why in the entire known multiverse has this not been known and become a thing in my life until NOW?! (Probably because I was sad and mobile, so those don't lend themselves to much holiday decorating.) I think they're GREAT!! Fucking fantastic.

    1. I have no idea why I've never seen them before either! I think they will be so easy to make and inexpensive. Yay! I'll try to post my finished result. :)



I adore your notes! Please don't be shy! :)
