Oh, I Remember You!

Wow, Thanksgiving came and went and so did a blur of activity! Between classes, Christmas trees, parties and a bit of vertigo I've really been on the run. Sound familiar? It's a great time of year, so much to do and prepare for.

The picture above is a small peek of some projects I've been working on. You'll see more of them later. Do you just love the tiny doll skate? I'm crazy about it!

Let's talk trees for a minute. What do you get, flocked or unflocked? We've always gotten an unflocked Noble Fir. This year I decided that I wanted one that was flocked but just here and there. It took me 4 tree lots but I finally found one that saw my vision. The tree carnie and I coined it, "heavy tips". So basically the tree only has clumps of flocking sporadically at the ends. It's FABULOUS! I'll have to take a photo of it when I have better light to show you. After we decorated and put the kids to bed I did what I've done for the last couple of years and moved half of the ornaments to the upper portion of the tree. I was laughing as I moved them and I realized that I'll only do this for a couple more years before they can reach up to hang them higher. Bittersweet I tell ya.

Lisa, I love these necklaces. Sign me up if you have a class! As far as xmas trees, I like pre-lit artifical. They can hold the heavy ornaments and I just plug it in and it's ready to decorate. No mess - no fuss (but no smell). Can't wait to see pictures of yours.

OMG, they are all TO DIE FOR!! I love 'em!!

I bet your tree is pretty! My husband is allergic, so we have artificial (which I'd probably have anyway)! :)

Hi Lisa, thank you for the nice comment on my blog. No, I didn't make the cushions, they are really old. It isn't my pic either, and I don't remember where I got it. I hope it wasn't from someone's blog, I'm usually very good about crediting them. :)
