Christmas decorations…

I was playing with my camera, trying to improve my ‘night’ shots. Still haven’t mastered it yet, but I really like how some of the pictures turned out. Here is my ‘white’ tree:

I had wanted a tall, thin tree to put white lights on. When Niki was pregnant with Julia she found this tree after Christmas for $11 – what a deal! She had to race to get the last one from a woman that was eying it; but, pregnant and all she got it – and I was thrilled!!
======================================

Here are some of the decorations:

I had such a blast shopping for these ornaments after I knew I was going to finally be able to decorate a tree in white lights. We have enough now, but I still love looking at burgundy and gold ornaments at the stores….

Our Mickey/Minnie tree skirt



Our IKEA lights – love these (copied the idea from Niki)

I love all the lights at Christmas and always think that it would be so cool to see them all year. I suppose, though, they would become common, then they would not be so special…

Christmas Cards…finally!

Whew, I finally completed my Christmas cards! This is the 2nd year in a row that I put off making my cards until the last minute. I REALLY need to start when I buy my products, that would make it much less stressful. I love the process of putting cards together, and am always so excited when the last piece has been adhered.
The trees on this card made me think of how peaceful and hushed it is in the woods after a snowfall…so I thought that this scripture went well:

Outside says: BE STILL…
Inside: AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD

Anyway, here are the 40 that I made; doesn’t it look like I was busy?!?

These were made from the sketch found here, at Taylored Expressions (sketch TECC35)
