The weekend was full of many wonderful things that I neglected to take photos of. I did manage to document my Christmas progress.
The main feat was getting the tree up and completely decorated! I have a silver tinsel tree, and I love it. It takes me forever... once the tree is assembled and fluffed in all it's glory, I separate the ornaments by color and style, then work on placement, moving them all over until I get it just right.
I added some Christmasy touches to my year round decor... a handful of candycanes in a vase, a beaded snowflakes leaning on a stack of books, a feathered wreath perched atop some coral, and a glittered pinecone in deep conversation with an owl.
I almost finished preparing my Olive Manna gift tags, still have to string them.
Still yet to do on my Christmas list:
-set up Nativity
-paint wise men white
-make a garland
-design Christmas card
-figure out what in the world to do with all my other Christmas deorations
It's going to be a busy week. And I'm hosting a party for 50 guests on Saturday, guess I should do something about that.
- catered food for a party, success!
- 3 great art shows attended
- lots of dishes washed
- great dinner out with Cory's art professors
- major Law & Order marathon
- glitter everywhere
