I'm Gonna Have To & Painting Cabinets

I'm so excited for the holidays this year!  I want to decorate and bake and do all kinds of fun holiday activities!  In the past I have spent minimal amounts of money on holiday decorations.  I figure they are only up for a few weeks out of the year, so having just a few decorations would do.  But this year I think I'm going to have to get/make some more.  I am so anxious for this new baby to come I need something to help pass the time.  Also, with having daycare kids here everyday, I don't get out much and get bored.  It's not a boredom from lack of things to do because I definitely stay busy with 6 kids and Jeni to take care of, but I need some activities for me to do that don't involve diapers and snacks.  So, I think crafting holiday decor projects and decorating will help.  I'm going to see what ideas I can find on some crafting blogs.

Any other ideas would be appreciated!

I said I'd never paint my kitchen cabinets because the thought of sanding, priming, and painting them all was just too overwhelming.  But...I read this post and decided it might not be that bad.  And here's another and another and another post with instructions.  We'll see...
