The wonder and excitement...
Making button trees for family ...

Holiday decor everywhere ...

I love the candy countdown...Your spoon tree is so cute and I am glad that you were able to get a gift early :o)

How did you make the silver ball ornaments? And how did you make the star ornaments look so good. I have made a bunch for our tree, but they are much more "rustic" looking than yours. I would love to see a picture of your entire tree.

Button Trees??? How absolutely adorable! I want to make one...but..I...will...not. At least, not this month! All of your ideas are amazing. I just love reading your posts.
I am so happy that you have power! Donna gave me my present tonight. It is absolutely PERFECT! I almost started crying. Corey just looked at us like we were crazy (nothing new there!). I'll post pics of it soon!
