I was all "gung ho" today to put up my Christmas decorations, but things didn't end up the way I had hoped. Chance started to hang all the white icicle lights along the front railings of the porch, but when he was done and went to plug them in, they all didn't want to light up at the same time. (He did test them before hanging them) I guess I have been toting these lights around with us for quite some time. We always argue about putting them up. I refuse to have colored lights on my house, and Shad thinks white lights show a lack of festiveness. Whatever. So, Shad says we need new ones. Well, it's not like I can just run down to Target and get some new ones. They will have to wait til the 5th when we fly out to go to Kenai for a few days.
Then on to the Christmas tree.
I want a tree up now, and if we get a real one, I'm sure to kill it before Ash even gets here. So, Shad is so excited that I am excited about Christmas, he offered to get us a fake tree.
I can't kill one of those!
My Sister in Law is going to see what they have in Homer tomorrow, I may have a tree by tomorrow evening. (doing the happy dance)
I have been pinning some fun Christmas things on Pinterest, and I wanted to share a few.
Ahh yes, let's start with the Pink Tree! It's made out of Crepe Paper. Love! This is from Daisy Pink Cupcake. Super cute.
This is a cute Paint Brush Ornament by Missy Mac Designs.
I love these cute little guys. Every year I say I'm going to make them, but never do. This one is done by Factory Direct Craft Blog.
And here is another, smaller version.
This is from Today's Fabulous Finds. My dilema? I can't paint or draw to save my life, so the faces would never look so cute. :(
This Button Ornament is made from a wire hanger, a little glue and lots-o-buttons, made by Shanty-2-Chic.
And last is this fabulous Picture Ornament from Scrapper Girl. This one is so cute, and looks quite easy to make.
There is so much wonderful creativity out there on the web. Hope you liked the ones I have showed you today. I'm off to sort my white buttons and look for some wire!
