I felt like Christmas came so quickly this year - like it always does, sneaking up on us, and before you know it, it's here - the big day - and all those things you thought you would do become pointless because the day is upon us! Here's what I ran out of time for: baking cookies, driving around to look at Christmas lights, going downtown and enjoying the sights, going to see Santa, having a cookie exchange (or any other party for that matter)........BUT, here are some things I DID do..........
I made these cool candles with scrapbook paper and mod-podge....
I picked up this kick-ass Frosty the Snowman handmade decoration at Value Village for $2.99. You twist his nose and it plays his theme song. I KNOW, RIGHT? Coolest decor EVER.
I took this selfie with my cat. Yeah.
I received all these Christmas cards! LOVE THEM! Because the rest of the year, the mail just sucks.
I recycled my Halloween pumpkins into this SWEET snowman display. SO Pinterest-worthy, yes?
I made this cool display of my collection of Starbucks ornaments, nestled in an antique Coca-Cola crate. P.S. I also bought those super cool "JOY" letters from my good friend, Fiona, who is awesomely crafty. AND I made the little mixed-media Christmas tree picture next to it.
I decorated the mantle and jacked this ornament idea from Pinterest for the window. LOVED it.
I took this picture of the Seattle skyline out the car window going 60 mph and made it into a holiday-card-ish picture.
I took this picture of my four favorite kids in the world, all dressed up. Plus, I took them to Oliver! for my birthday celebration. LOVE THEM!
I took this picture of our brilliantly decorated house (kudos to my son for doing the lights this year!). Once again, the best on the block. I mean, I'm biased, but you can come judge for yourself.
I went to this party with my favorite guy and we got all dressed up. We actually look kind of goofy in this picture, but you get the idea.
I took this super blurry picture of my living room, and then edited it to make it even more blurry so I could call it "art" - but, look at ALL THOSE PRESENTS we get to open tomorrow. I bought those. And wrapped those. And put tiny binder clips on all of them so the cats wouldn't get into them. The things I do.......
I sent out 100 of these Christmas cards.
So, yeah, I did a lot this Christmas season. And I think I'm done. I'm pretty sure I'm done. I'll let you know once I get back from the store.........
