It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas!

I have been busy the last little bit readying things for Christmas. Such a busy time of the year, but oh so beautiful. I have a habit of clean, clean, clean, decorate a little, clean some more, do a little shopping, more decorating, write out Christmas cards (boy is that time consuming), more cleaning and try to stop myself from looking at another decoration. I always feel bad because honestly I never have time to make any Christmas cards but sure would love to one of these years. Maybe a person should actually start in February to prepare for the following December.

I thought I would share a little of my Christmas decorating fun with you, haven't posted in ages and didn't want you all to think I have fallen off the here is a bit of what I have happening at my home for my family and friends.

A few goodies in my art room.

Next up are a few pretties in my dining room.

Gingerbread in the kitchen for sure.

Family room pretties.

My family thinks that I am a bit weird with this black tree, but I love it...
and I like weird, so there...hehehe..

Just a little collage that I put together digitally this morning. All elements from Rebecca McMeen.
at Scrapbook Graphics!

Blessings to all, happy decorating...

Your black tree is just awesome. I have never seen one to buy or I would snap it up. We put up our (boring) green tree today. Christmas is coming whether we are ready or not.

That digital image is amazing. It would make a great Christmas card.

Diane said...

Oh, I can't wait to decorate my house--but I think I need your vintage touch--I love this!!
P.S. My husband has taken your package to the post office. If I remember from last time, they acted like it was going to another planet and couldn't give me a clue as to when it would arrive. So I'm really hoping that you get it in time to put it in your Christmas stocking :)

Terri Kahrs said...

Debby, everything looks so festive and wonderful! I adore those little "Wish" blocks and your Christmas village too. Thanks for the tour!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Beautiful decorations, everything is lovely. Wish I was as far as you... the cleaning thing really slows me down, guess you know how dirty my house is now :)
I am so glad you are joining me for my Birthday Party, thank you


HEHEEE debby! it is so good to hear you haven't fallen off the edge of the earth! lol

you make me smile....I have your beautiful card on my inspiration board staring at me .... and I thank you once again!

last night...when I showed my hubby what you sent me...he started playing with all of the pretty collage items....and made a collage on the table....he put the butterfly wings on the little sitting girl and sat her on the little blue egg with the bird atop her head! it was funny!

i have them all neatly cut out and ready for something creative...for that someday project that will strike me out of nowhere, like it always does!

have a great day!
ciao bella
