I've been a busy writer-bee this past month. When I finally emerged from my revision cave last week it was only to discover that I'm woefully behind on... everything. Despite a wonderful family pitching in, the housework was so out of control that holiday preperations weren't even on the radar. And thus was born... the Laundr-tree!!!
Step One: Begin with a sizable pile of laundry. For those of you stalled on this step - go choke on some eggnog. For those of you who glanced at a corner and replied, "Okay, got it," you are my people. Proceed to step two.
Step Two: Put that ugly Christmas sweater to some good use and camoflage that pile. You may either stop at this step, or else skip it entirely. This project doesn't have hard and fast rules, and if you haven't realized it yet - I'm no Martha Stewart. In fact, I should've probably opened with the disclaimer that I'm completely unqualified to give homemaking advice.
Step Three: (Optional) Steal the lights off the neighbor's bushes and spread them ever so gently over the pile. For those looking to give it that little bit of extra - add an angel to the top of the pile.
Step Four: Throw on some holiday tunes and relax! I present to you... The Laundr-tree!! Look how festive it looks at night.
Merry Christmas all!
