this year, J and i decided we wanted a Christmas tree...a bigger tree in comparison to last year's mini fiber optic one that belonged to Lacey. we went out and got a cheap 4 ft. pre-lit tree (bad idea, it looked pretty sorry, but that's what we got for the money we spent), borrowed some ornaments from his mom (bought a few also) and came home to decorate. voila!
i took this picture one morning when the sunlight was shining on the ornaments. it was beautiful.
being a photo geek that i am, i wanted to add photographs to our tree. i was inspired by Elsie's instant photo ornaments...doh! so simple!
we placed our tree on a side table to keep it away from curious animals and to put prezzies under. J and i have a bad habit of opening gifts early, so one of my gifts is already sitting under the tree...Yuki, the mini bottom feeder from The Cotton Monster! i've been wanting one forever!
i adore this paper house ornament we picked up for less than $1. CHEAP!
a gingerbread man ornament that J gifted to me for our very first Christmas. sigh.
our tree wouldn't be complete without something weird in it! one of our ornaments is a monster claw!!! we got this while we were in Seattle. i miss that place.
the Holiday spirit is in the air. i still have a few gifts to make so i should get going. working on a few custom orders and wrapping up projects for this Saturday's Rock n' Shop show at the Black Cat.
nine days until Christmas! WHAT?!?!?
