Do you have you’re tree up yet? I do, but like every year I’m sad to confess that I’m not crazy about the way that it looks. I’ve always flipped flopped between fun tree or pretty tree. I haven’t quite figured out how to combine the two. Have you? Have you seen any great photos out there?
Christmas & Such
I’m loving these big paper flower pinwheel type thingies. No idea how to make them. Maybe Belinda knows? She is the craftiest and today she’s posted a how to for a super cute wreath made from book pages.
Part of the problem is I’m so over my tree skirt and stockings. Too matchy matchy and formal for me.
And speaking of pretty and fun combined. I think if anyone can pull this off it’s Meg. I really hope she posts pictures of her tree this year (like soon). I’ve always wanted stockings like hers (have you seen any? etsy maybe?) . Here are few of her past holiday decorations that now have me wanting to go the flea market this weekend.
I’m always a sucker for anything using a tree branch
And this might be my favoritest (i know it is not a word but it should be) idea for the year. I don’t have a staircase but if you do…please do this for me!
Did you go shopping on Black Friday? I didn’t. That is so not me. I didn’t even know about Cyber Monday and am wishing I was more organized and could take advantage of some of those deals. And I’m just going to be honest. All of you out there that have you’re shopping done and you’re cards all ready to post are kind of stressing me out. I feel way behind and technically it is not even December. I’ve always been one to finish up my shopping at the last minute and wrap until 2 in the morning on Christmas Eve. Yes, I’m one of those. I blame it on my mother. Anyhow…. I’m going to try to get ahead of the game this year. Really I am. This takes strategy and decisiveness, I’m quite sure of that. So I’m blog hunting around for tips, ideas, strategies, decor ideas and any suggestions I might find. Can’t wait to see what you all do!!!!!
