It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

I say that, but I only have my tree up - not decorated.  It is funny how much smaller it looked at the grocery store.  I wanted a tall tree because we have super tall ceilings.  Well, after Brett helped me get it into the house the other night, I realized that  sucker is huge, and I don't mean "ordinary huge".  I mean "humongous"!  That tree has got to be about 5 feet in diameter.  I had to take a chair out of the room just so it would fit into the family room.  Now I have to add the lights to it.  Man, am I dreading it.  I am wondering if I even have "enough" lights to do it!  What the heck was I thinking.  I was wanting a real tree so I wouldn't have to put together my artificial tree - which I still have to put light on as well.  Regardless, I have to say the real tree does smell nice.  Well, once I get it decorated I'll post a photo of it, so you can see I'm not lying about the size of that thing!

So, today is my day to do the blog for Nikki Sivils https://www.nikkisivils.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=BLOG .  These are my Christmas items for it, but I posted work from another dt gal as well.

He,hee you can see I went a little "glitter happy" on all my stuff.  It is a good thing Yankee wasn't in his usual spot under my feet when I was making them.  If he had been, I would guess he'd be sporting a sparklier coat now.   I would definitely have the most festive cat around. 

Don't forget to leave a comment on my post from Sunday, to possibly win a "North Pole Nights" mini album kit by Nikki Sivils.  You can see the post under this one.  Good luck.
