I am an avid believer that each Holiday on my calendar is equally created and deserve the same rights. I refuse to shop for Holiday decorations in July or forget about Thanksgiving because Christmas falls only three weeks instead of four in some years. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE all celebrations, just ask anyone who knows the Lebel's and they will tell you that we spare no expense whenever decorating for a Holiday. As a kid my family celebrated the major holidays meaning Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter, but we weren't really into having corn beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day, makeing a maypole or spookifying the house at Halloween. It's not that we ignored them for any particular reason it's just that my parents didn't put any special emphasis on it. As an adult I take any opportunity I can to celebrate: it reminds me life is good and of course it means we always have something to look forward to. What I do object to is rushing through them. I am always saddened when I see the St' Patrick's Day decorations on sale next to the Easter ones, or Halloween and Christmas together: Thanksgiving is sometimes all but forgotten. I understand retailers doing this, they must meet the demand and time constraints they are on. But I do believe that in our homes we should honor all holidays equally. Since most holidays have a particular month they fall in with no other competition I try and give that holiday the entire month at center stage. In other words you will not find me taking down my Thanksgiving decorations in November, November belongs to Thanksgiving and I will pay it homage all month. I am trying to do this with my blog as well. I don't want to forget about one holiday in order to move on to the next too quickly, but a few of you have asked what I have up my sleeve for Spring and Easter. Well seeing that the first day of spring was last week (BBRRR!) I will let you know. I was up at Lasting Memories a few weeks ago when I ran across the new Cut and Paste line fromK&Company. I was so inspired by the retro playfulness of the images and the colors: FABULOUS! It threw me back to my childhood. I will be creating a SPRING banner with the papers next week and hopefully displaying it for you with directions by the end of it. You will love this. For now I wanted to leave you with some fun images of Springtime. These are a couple of my favorites. Few things scream spring like fairies, bunnies and chicks. Enjoy them. You can download them and make your own cards with the images. For now I will leave it to your imagination.
