It's the school holiday, & the kids get restless easily. So, I'm "pacing" myself between activities at home... & bringing them out.
This morning, I announced that we'll go to IKEA, to get some lighting for Christmas.
And, guess what I came home with?? *lol*
But then, it was all soo satisfying & "happy" buying these stuff ^^
Not having my husband around on this trip, gives me "freedom" to buy what my heart desires, *grin*... but, I'm also proud at resisting the charming (& tempting) shiny red, white & silver baubles that will look so pretty hung up around the house for the festive season.
I feel they didnt cost much, but on hindsight, I figured that I'll need more than 1 or 2 boxes to create a certain "effect" that I envisioned. And, suddenly they just seemed too costly for me.
I decided to put those away, & go the handmade route again! :)
I'm planning to make wreaths, & pretty little hang-up decors wrapped in these.... Plus, my intended "Christmas Tree" wall mural :D
Multi-purpose, handmade, & cost saving too!
Now, I'll just have to "persevere" to see these projects through... with the help of my 2 kids of course ;)
