I Did a Bad Thing. . .Rake Up #9

It was a total impulse buy.  You can't wave October Afternoon at me and not expect me to bite.  It's like throwing chum at a shark. . .it's gonna go for it, it's going to be fast (you'll never see the strike, you'll just be missing an arm - or money from your account) and it's  certainly not going to be pretty when it's over (let the buyer's remorse rationalization set in.)  My justification?  Well, duh, December Daily 2012.  Sha.  Jeez.  Looking at the photo I'm pretty sure I can get 10 years of December Dailies out of it, but whatever.  It's October Afternoon people! 

Don't judge. 

Rake Up #9 - I've pulled out my Christmas Planner, have updated the pages and started to record the purchases I've already made, the ones to be made and other odd bits for this season.  This, I believe is the first year I've started shopping this early and I have a pretty good stash; I'm so excited.  So, for those of you with Christmas items on your Rake Up list, I present the following inspiration. 

I found these luminaries on Pinterest and had to pin them on Apron Strings' I Can Do That board.  How cute (and seemingly easy to do) are these?  The white and green color scheme.  The snowflakes.  The silver.  It's all so good.  You could do these with orange ribbon and pumpkin stencils for a centerpiece to your Thanksgiving table.  These could inspire your Christmas cards - how quick for the bulk of your list!

If you haven't left your list of Rake Up Goals and you want to take part, you can leave your comment attached to the post HERE. I am reading them and looking for ways to help you complete your lists. And you just never know when I may select a name and reward your accomplishments ;) I'm kooky that way.

Note: As you complete your projects, leave a comment under any Rake Up post sharing what you completed. If you've got a photo to share, include the link.

I seem to be lacking in focus today.  So I'm off to try to rectify that.

Happy Tuesday.

I keep thinking I'll do a daily... we'll see. Great looking stuff though! And funny haha, I pinned those Martha Stewart jars on Pinterest too. :)

Don't let "daily" be the reason you don't try it. I've done it four years, or this will be my fourth, I forget - but I have one or two that had daily photos and one that just has a handful. TRY IT!! :)

I was inspired by the theme and found these flowers with the frosted centers.
