I would take you to the tree first but it’s in the den and I might as well show you what little I have in the living room. I don’t really go hog wild at Christmas, just enough to make me happy.
This is my coffee table with Christmas trees I made out of magazines. I thought of painting them but I kind of like the way they are. By the way my coffee table is never this clean there’s always something else besides pretty on it.
Where I slack in the rest of the decor department of the house, I try to make up for on the tree. I admit it’s probably not the most beautiful tree you’ve seen but it helps to feed my craft craving. I try to make a few different ornaments every year. I’ve still got a lot of work to do. This tree used to be pretty stinkin bare for the longest time. There used to be only a few baby keepsake ornaments and a few ornaments given to me by my MIL. Other than it was just tinsel and bows. Sad really.
Yes I’m showing off me with the tree. I was on my way to my hubs Christmas party. I figure it’s not every decade that I’m dressed up like this. Sad that I will probably never wear that dress again. At least it’s getting good use being uploaded on the blog. That should count as wear right?
A little photo cropping wouldn’t have hurt..sorry.
This is some of the ornaments I’ve been crafting. These are going on teacher presents and what not. If you want to see more close ups of my ornaments and the tree, take a looksee at the post below this one. There’s some links to great tutorials on how to make them. I didn’t want to beat a dead horse by posting them again. I had to throw in a couple of “Longhorn” reindeer for good measure and counter balance with some Sooner reindeer. We’re a house divided in these parts.
