Thank you Washingtonian!


Thank you Washingtonian for featuring Annie Elliott of Bossy Color Blog and myself in the Turkey Day Decorating Tips feature!
Annie and I gave some tips for decorating on the cheap. One of my suggestions was to use a canvas drop cloth for a tablecloth. But now that Christmas is coming, I can think of a second use - a Christmas tree skirt that you can let your kids draw on with fabric markers. Each year they can add to their art work so you'll end up with a homemade tree skirt that marks the passing years with their drawings. I wish I had thought of that 15 years ago...

Great idea, I love it. even getting signatures from guests and relatives on the cloth in different colored paints or markers would be a wonderful memory piece.

I love this idea. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to suggest it to my daughter. I think the grandson will love making one for his little tree. hugs ~lynne~
