I love christmas! It is such a fun holiday. This year I was so excited I got decorations and a tree. To be honest I actually started those snowflakes the weekend after thanksgiving. I've been going nonstop watching christmas movies and listening to christmas music.
I can't remember what day it was but I believe it was the saturday after thanksgiving that I went and bought my first tree at the dollar market. (it's artificial but still a decent tree!) To be honest when I had taken it out of the box I was kind of dissappointed it really looked like a Charlie Brown christmas tree. But I bought decorations and whatnot and look at it now!
For a twelve dollar tree it came out looking pretty snazzy if I do say so myself. It's only about four feet tall but it's just perfect for my room.
I love my little ornaments too, almost all of them are from target. I also got a little tree skirt from target but I forgot to nab a photo of it. The only ornament that isn't from target is the first one of the little man on the ladder. My mom and I had went to the christmas hospice store in town and I'd picked him up thinking he was adorable. But I didn't really plan on getting him so I put him back down. Little did I know my mom picked up when I walked away only to give it to me later as my first ornament.
I really really enjoy the little stripes of glitter on my star, it's just one of those tiny extra details. Also if you were curious about my garland it's made out of wax paper thread and hot glue. It's something really simple that looks great. I got the idea from here. Though she had a normal sized tree and a circle punch. I just cut the circle's by hand and whereas she didn't seem to enjoy making it I thought it was fun. It was much longer than I expected to have to make it, but I wouldn't mind doing it again if I had to. Then again like I said my tree is only four feet tall if it had been like eight feet tall I might be singing a different tune.
I'm so happy to have just finished a big group project and a huge research paper. Only a few weeks left until this semester is over. I can't wait for break!
