O Christmas Tree

Saturday turned out to be a good
shopping day, and we got alot done.

For the last few days, I've
been wrapping and tying.

The tree looks alot less lonely now.

Now, if I can just find the time to bake.

What are you doing for the holiday?

Looks like Santa did good, everything is sooooo pretty!

Your tree and presents look lovely! No matter how hard I try I cannot get all mine wrapped to match. Most of it is we wrap each child in a paper so we don't put names on them and they don't open them!! SO now we have to have 4 or more wrappings and it just doesn't work. Yours is lovely!!
Hugs, Lisa

OH MAN! I haven't even started - and my son has a birthday on the 21st that I still need to wrap also.
OK, I'm ready for you to come to my house now - you can help! :)
Hugs. Karen

Somebody's been very good this year! The packages are beautiful beneath that stunning tree. I adore the ribbon decoration. Thanks for sharing the beauty and creative ideas.

Oh Debi~ that tree is beautiful! I love how all the packages match. I've always wanted to do that but with so many elves in the house it does'nt work. I wish I could stay in my pajamas all day, would'nt that be the bomb! We should have a slumber craft party!

Hi there! Guess what Santa brought me for Christmas? HIGH SPEED INTERNET and yes I'm yelling cuz I'm so excited!

Ok, now you asked so: Today I am baking sugar cookies and Elfin Shortbread Bites. I'm using the following cutters for the sugars: Giant Gingerbread Man (really, he's 8 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide), regular sized g'bread men, three snowflakes, holly leaves and Santa hats!

Got all the shopping done day before yesterday - decided to go heavy in favor of gift certificates so that helped a LOT - since the 120-mile round trip drive means no last minute anything, and plus the animals get so mad if I get home late for their feeding.

House is decorated and this year I had quite a few more shabby pink decorating items, so that is so nice!

Have missed you but with high speed now I can blog again!

Katie said...

Oh, I totally forgot to say how beautiful your tree is! Just lovely!
