The Maple Hill Hop 111



Maple Hill Hop


Welcome to 
The Maple Hill Hop.
This is a hop for folks who love the outdoors.
Feel free to post about anything that's going on
OUTSIDE
in your neck of the woods,
no matter the season.
(Please share only outdoor posts.)

 Not much going on here lately,
except for the three of us recovering from a nasty virus.
It was a rough weekend, but we made it through.
We had planned to get our tree and put up our lights,
but that just wasn't gonna happen.

So, here it is 10 days before Christmas,
and it's looking like a real hum-bug around here.  
Before the bug struck me, I was able to get one small project done for the holidays. 



I found this idea on Mindie's blog.
For Thanksgiving, she decorated her front door 
with a giant turkey.
We loved the idea and made one for our house.
Then I started thinking about using the same idea for other holidays.


We have a large etched window on our front door,
so I wanted to incorporate it into the idea.
I thought about Santa's workshop
and the visitors who would love to sneak a peek
at the progress the elves were making.
  I'm no artist, but it was a fun project
and it keeps us from being the Scrooges of the block. 
   

With just some butcher paper (we used the paper that comes in our Amazon orders), 
a marker, scissors and some recycled white paper,
you can "holidize" your own front door!

Only 10 days until Christmas.
What's going on outside where you are?
HOP on!
