Good morning...it's dreary and misty this morning. I wish I was telling you it is snowing, but snow is nowhere to be seen around these parts and none predicted...boo hoo. But I am enjoying my morning cup with a croissant and cherry jam. Takes a little of the boo hoo's away.
I am still decorating...I seem to have turned this into an event. Yesterday I decided I needed to go to Hobby Lobby to pick up just a few things. Well, 5 bags (they were small) later I was back home and digging back into the never-ended decorating. Maybe if I would stay focused (?) I would get it done. I did buy a few new things to add to my decorating. What am I saying....I have so much Christmas stuff, the last thing I needed was one more stuff to decorate. Nevertheless, I did it and I will post all of my results when complete.
This Santa is definitely not new....I do believe he is my favorite Santa. I used to be a big-time Santa collector, but then it just got ridiculous and thank goodness I was able to put a stop to the madness or I would have turned into one of those crazed collectors that turn whole rooms into a display of Santas. This particular Santa was the MOST expensive Santa I ever bought in my crazed days. I think he was over $100 dollars which, when I was collecting these gems, was totally out of my Santa spending budget.
Do you remember my "grateful tree" for Thanksgiving? The birch twigs that I gathered from the yard? Well, I recycled those twigs and am using them again in a "jingle bell" tree for the dining room table. I sprayed them gold, and added some glitzy sprays (Hobby Lobby), hung jingle bells and voila.
I think this year I am sending postcards for my Christmas cards....I am expecting a shipment today from Red River Paper that has plain postcards to print your own. And since I have my fancy new printer I am delving into it this weekend, since the shipment is due today. This may be one of the cards....ahh what you can do in Photoshop!! I added the sparklies and the "Merry Christmas" digitally.
Until next time....
