'Tis the Season + Free Printable

Despite the tasks we still need to complete in our house to make it functional year round, Christmas is upon us and the house must be decorated. "'Tis the season!" they say. There are lots of things that still need to be organized, half-emptied boxes lying around, and some blank walls here and there. But Christmas comes but once a year, so this week we got our decorations out and set up our tree! I have to admit, I really love having all of my Christmas decorations out, even if it seems a bit more cluttered in some areas. It's always fun to try new things with my Christmas decorations and play around with where to set things up. Of course it's all new in our new house, so that has been fun too!

I was in an artsy mood and wanted to make something Christmasy to frame next to our nativity scene in the foyer. I have absolutely no experience in graphic design, I just played around with fonts on iPiccy and this is what I came up with. If you don't like it, you can move right along. But if you do, you can download the printable here (the background looks gray here, but it is white). The print is sized to 8x10, but I actually printed mine scaled to 4x6 on a full sheet of paper and it turned out well! I just stuck it on some red cardstock and fit it in a frame. I've realized how little decorations I own that are focused on the real reason for the season, and I love how this turned out.

Have you decorated for the holidays yet?
