Back in October, I had no desire to put up any Christmas decorations. No one, except us, got to enjoy them, so I didn't want to go all out.
I was telling this to a friend when she said that I had to put up my tree because she was already inviting herself over for Christmas.
With this little comment, I was ready to come up with a plan. I also realized that Christmas is about giving whether that is a gift or a meal. Or both. It is also about giving times to others and enjoy each other's company.
Ok, back to the plan!
I had so many ideas! Some I found on Pinterest. The others just popped in my head right before I went to sleep. You know those kind that you hope to remember when you wake up because they are that awesome!
Here was one indeed.
It started with a world map that I found online. I loved the colors!
I just added some burlap to a frame that I have had forever.
I found some scrapbook paper at the Hobby Lobby and mod podged it to the mat.
I added some push pins to special areas to us on the map along with the words "Santa Stops" to get this ...
I love this little vignette!
