Hey guys! So, as you have probably guessed by now, I love decorating my front door. Since I had wreaths for my last two doors, I’m sure you’re expecting another one since it’s actually wreath season and all of that, but I just wasn’t feeling it this month. I went super simple with some brown butcher paper and went with a “brown paper packages tied up with strings approach.
The same afternoon, I decided I really wanted to make Christmas cookies. As I may have mentioned, I am new to this whole Christmas thing, so I’ve never actually done that? I made a journey to Target to get a rolling pin and some cookie cutters and… you guys, it was a disaster.
Keep on reading to see both the cute door décor and my awful cookie fail.
I guess the next thing I’ll be decorating for is Valentine’s Day, so let me know what you think I should do for Valentine’s Day, since I don’t have any ideas yet. Maybe I’ll get a baby doll and make it into cupid, although I’m not sure how I’d hang that… Hm, I’ll have to think on that.
Hopefully next time it works out better, but, I’m a little disappointed. Tell me what I did wrong! Do any of you guys have foul-proof sugar cookie recipes? Sigh.
And that’s what’s going on here- Basically my home has been “Jenn Learns How To Do Christmas” since the end of Thanksgiving. Today I learned stocking stuffers. (Spoilers: Toys for adults. Also, candy, and as per special request, beef jerky?) It’s very interesting to grow up (very VERY moderately) Jewish and observe Christmas as an outsider, and then marry in to it. I’m learning though, and I’m trying my best.
