New Year's Eve 2009...

Or is it 2010? I never know if it's the year you're leaving or the year you're entering...


One of my goals for this year is to save money. Which means I've chosen 3 holidays (4th of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas) that I can go crazy on, and the rest? They are going to require great creativity, not to mention restraint.

Have you noticed that I'm big on holidays?

This is going to be a challenge.

New Years Eve is my first test. No trips to to the store allowed.

I found some posterboard behind the fridge and decided to make it into a table runner. I cut it in half, then let my kids march all over it with paint on their feet. It was a hit. The feet go with our theme for the evening and year. My chosen theme for the year is "Good, Better, Best" and the theme for our New Years is "Best Foot Forward!"

So far, so good...

Now. What is already in our pantry that I can make a celebration out of??


  1. You are so much better than I!
    1. Goals for the year? Nope...none.
    2. A theme for the year? I supposed to have one of those?
    3. A creative craft for the kids...out of what's around the house...that centers around the theme for the evening...that goes along with the theme for the year? I know there are none of those happening around here today! No, I don't even know what we're doing tonight.
    One of my goals is going to more like Becca.
    Oh - yes, I have noticed you like holidays.:}
