I Need More Hours in My Day

Hi, I'm still around.  I am sorry I haven't posted in so long.  My new job has kept me busy, stressed and exhausted.  But it's all good.  It hasn't been a bad stress, but a "wow, this is all new and am I ever gonna learn this" kind of stress.  I'm sure you have been there.

Well, I have been thinking, and I am changing the purpose or structure of this blog.  I am throwing away the schedule and I will be posting crafts and recipes as I do them.  I have tons of ideas, just not tons of time.  I'll probably have rambling posts on the life of this particular southern girl.

Right now I am shopping for a car to get me to that new job.  And of course I am working on Christmas stuff.  This year, since my son is two, I decided to decorate the tree with only home made decorations.  That way, if Jax pulls any off and destroys them, it's not that big of a deal.

I made small snowflakes out of white paper and gold and white heavy vellum.

I also made a garland out of red tag board.

Next I made these silver ribbon "icicles."

And last, I made a silver bow for the top of the tree.

I was going to make a popcorn garland, but the Christmas tree is so small, I decided it had enough stuff on it.  Now if only my son will stop pulling the snowflakes off and tearing them to bits.  It will be interesting to see if the tree has any left by the time Christmas gets here.

How did you decorate your tree this year?  I would love to see pics.

Thanks for stopping by,
