Ooooops...We got it wrong!

Boy I sure do miss having the kids home when it's time to put up the Christmas Tree... it now falls to me and Hubby to put up the tree which means there is room for odd technical hitch ;)

So the tree went up... no problem there, then the lights put in place... no problem there, then we turned them on...

Eeeewwww!!!  You could hardly tell they were switched on, talk about a dim light - very disappointed with the lights on the tree :(  So we had a conversation that went - 'Oh, they are not very good lights are they'  'We should buy some more... didn't we say that last year'  'I thought we had bought new lights' 'wait a minute' opens another box of Christmas bits and hey presto found another set of lights.  Yes we had bought new lights last year and I had forgotten to mark the box and separate the outside lights from the inside! 
So once the lights on the tree were replaced and turned on to double check we hadn't got it wrong again...hehehe, this is what our tree looks like :)

*sigh*  I love a pretty tree, I could look at it all night!

Have a great day!

Crafty Goodies!

Being super organiszed this year meant I had time to put together these little goodies bags for a few of my favorite Customers at work...

The Santa treat toppers are a .studio cut file I purchased from the Silhouette store.  These are just too cute when made up :)

Getting in the Spirit!

I just had to do this with my nails...

(another Pinterest find)

Mind you the look on the lady-who-does-my-nails face when I ask if she could do this was gold.  How cute are they... so festive and I've had so many comments on them already - hahahaha! 

Have a great day!

The Official start of the Season!

Here in this house anyway...

Have I mentioned I LOVE PINTEREST!  It gave me the idea for this around my front door...

I love it sooooo much I think I will do the same for the windows next year :)  Now to put up the lights and go finish off decorating the inside of the house!

Have a great day!
