Happy Monday!  I did it.  I broke down and put Easter out this weekend.  And St Patty's day too!  Its
st Patty's day in my craft room and Easter through out the rest of the house.  still have lots of tweaking to do!  
I posted on facebook that that I must have some sort of mental health disorder because I'm obsessed with all this holiday crafting and decorating and several people posted what they thought the disorder was..
I'm thinking there are a bunch of us out here with the same disorder!  here's the list of possible diagnosis's:
OCD  (overwhelmingly cute disorder!)
then there was a sweet friend that called it "love of joyfulness, love of talent, artistic spirit, best mom and grandma syndrome!"
I thought they were all cute, but my fav is from my cousin Paul,  HYPERDECORAPHILIA!
So there girls there are names for our sickness!  pick your favorite and own it! lol!
thank you to Kim K for the oh so sweet st Patty's day goodies she sent me!  I do love my Kimmie K!  shes a pie in my eyes! (get it?  Kimmie pie? )  OK.. I cant help myself sometimes.

Still way too much snow around here, I cleaned about 7 inches off my car yesterday morning... I know I don't need to say that I'm tired of it..  so I wont say it... I'm just thinking it really loudly in my brain... in fact its screaming in my head!
but the good news is, there are only 17 days til spring!  It will come.. and boy do we deserve it! 
have a happy day! 
think springy, bunny thoughts!

Gooooood Morning Viv:) I love your decorating illness, you inspire me! Easter is late this year and that gives us MORE time to enjoy the bunnies and chicks, eggs and baskets:) Have a blessed week dear friend, HUGS!

So cute! I love this post Viv, you've started my day with smiles and giggles. May you always suffer from an over abundance of holiday happiness and craftification.
Your things from Kim are adorable, so much fun!

Happy week to you! xo

You made my transition back to work this morning a very happy one. Now, I can justify my need to decorate and craft for every single holiday. Thanks for giving me permission to start digging out the Easter too. If Viv can do it, so can I!

Since I mainly focus on cute all year long I must have Overwhelmingly Cute Disorder, too!

One of my non blogging facebook friends told me, "You're so cute with your decorating obsession!"

Oh well, whatever makes us happy-right? :)

What a great start to Monday! Love this post, Viv, and you've inspired me! My last name is Gleason (OK, it's my married name) but I have NOTHING for St. Patrick's Day. I need to do something in honour of my husband's heritage (well, truth is, he's half Irish and half Swedish) My goal is to create something GREEN this week....and take down my Valentine decorations.
Let's all be holics together!!

Well, if you have to be sick, that is a good thing to have! I really enjoy coming to your blog and seeing what you are putting out. Then I know I can do it too! LOL! Have a great week.

There is something about decorating for an upcoming holiday that just makes a home happy! My St. Patty's is out but I am a purist and can't mix the holidays. Must put one behind me before decorations come out. (Altho am ALWAYS way ahead on the crafting aspect of it..Easter is pretty much done)

Maybe I will get out my Easter totes...haven't been feeling in the mood because of all the SNOW & COLD that is hanging on :(
But, you have encouraged me!
Cute Kimmie pie goodies!

thank you Viv....I had to show my hubby this post...but he is like yours...he supports all my decorating for every holiday...and the making of decorations/decor/whatever for each theme is impossible to NOT do

I am so glad you have this particular illness because it seems like it is very catchy! I received my swap today from LISA and oh my goodness! Did I ever receive a wonderful St. Patty's Swap! Thank you so much Vivian, for sharing this swap with us!
