I’ve not yet confessed to the blogosphere my crazy-Christmas-love—my manic obsession with all things Santa and Baby Jesus—the tree, the stocking, the twinkling lights.
You may have guessed a bit about my holiday hysteria when I shared photos of the ornaments I’m making—quilted, two-inch squares of found paper and fabric, folded with straight pins and wrapped into balls.
However, I’m crafty about Christmas in other ways, as well. And since I’m repurposing discarded and found furniture this week, it seems a perfect time to share photos of a child’s classroom chair I transformed several years ago.
I call the piece “Meowy Christmas,” since it uses cat images to communicate its happy, holiday message.
Ultimately, I donated the chair to the Lexington Living Arts and Science Center, where it was sold at a fund-raising event.
Clearly, I’m crafty about Christmas and crazy for an opportunity to create “special” from scratch. I love to make meaning, and even love, from what other people scrap.
What do you do special for the December holidays?
