Have you put your holiday decorations away? Some people like to put them away quickly, while others like to leave them out for quite awhile. I fall somewhere in the middle, usually putting my Christmas decorations away the first weekend after New Year's. This year, I didn't have much to put away...
As the journaling on this layout indicates, our family didn't put up our big tree for Christmas 2014. We all had bad colds at the beginning of December, and decorating just seemed like too much of a hassle. So we put out Santa Bear and a tiny tabletop tree instead.

You know what? I actually liked the simplicity of not decorating much for Christmas. I'm not saying that I'll do it this way every Christmas, but it is nice to go easy on yourself every now and then.
Blog-wise, I am also simplifying. My life is about to get a lot busier, as I'll be taking a graduate course during spring semester. Some of my normal blogging time is going to turn into study time. Basically, there will be three changes to my blog:
- I'll still be blogging, just not as often.
- I won't be seeking any design team positions at this time.
- I'll still write monthly destashing posts, but they will no longer be scheduled for the tenth of each month.
