I wanted to buy more presents for the girls but I have waited too late. They really shouldn't mind getting surprises in January and February, should they? After all they are awesome mature adults who understand that their mother is a little overwhelmed :).
I started with wreaths and then got stalled. I have made some cookies and I have finally decorated the tree.
This wreath is new this year. My friend, Kathleen, made it from tin can lids and vintage balls. I think it is beautiful and that she is really talented. And I am a little jealous.
I did make a few new tree ornaments. It is one of those things that I like to do...that keeps me from doing those boring mundane household chores. These ornaments were made from patterns from Betz White. They are all fairly easy...the instructions sometimes said to glue but I decided to sew....glue didn't seem to hold.
