From Santa....

A friend of mine, Crystal, asked me to make her son, Aidan, a card from Santa. So, I sat on it for a few days coming up with different ideas. I was finally able to decide on something and the good news is she loved it!!! She also asked me hand write a letter from Santa in the card!

Simply Divine

I must really have the Christmas itch. I am coming up with all these creative ideas! LOL This new creation that I made on Saturday, it took about an hour! Not too bad, eh, not for something this awesome looking! I painted everything myself, added some glitter, some 'snow', some trees. :) And I love it!! Oh, not to mention it only cost a total of $8.39 to make!!

Christmas Wreath

I wanted to make a wreath that matched our Christmas colors. I thought about making a traditional one, but this time around I did a yarn one. I am considering making a traditional one as stay tuned in!

Here's the wreath I made:

It's Beginning To Look.....

a lot like Christmas! Yes, yes it is! The weather here is finally cooling down and the sun is hidden...which I love. Some people think I am strange for hating the summer and loving the winter, but I hate the sun, I love the dreary type of weather that require sweaters and scarves and a nice cup of peppermint hot chocolate! To me, I can have this nearly all year long. :)

How was everyone's Thanksgiving? Good, I hope! My family came into town and we had a really good time! It was nice seeing them and my niece and nephew!

Now, it's Christmas time!!!! YAY! I attempted to convince John to get a real Christmas tree...I saw some and they were so gorgeous...but he turned my idea down. :( Pooey, maybe one of these days I can have a real tree in here for Christmas. But, our famous long living fake tree is serving our household proudly this year again. It looks great so I can't complain!

Our colors are silver, blue and white. I just love those colors. I am not a big fan of the traditional red and green...I don't know why.Oh, yeah and we also have our Yoda tree topper! A Christmas tree is not complete until you've got Yoda sitting on top! lol

Here is my tree! :)
