A Little Late

I wanted to get these pictures posted before Christmas, but as you know, this time of year is so hectic. It seems no matter how hard I try, it turns into one big "stress-fest". I was thinking maybe that's just part of it all, and if it were any other way, it might feel as though something were missing. Of course, this being the most horrible year of my life, I didn't get a lot of time to plan ahead and get shopping and decorating done early.

I wanted to share these tree embellishments that I made last year. You've seen those beautiful display tress at the store and I imagine you probably think like I do at times and wish you could get yours to look like those. Well, it inspired me to come home and make some tree decoration similar to the ones I always see in the stores.

I just took some silk roses and little white flowers along with some Christmas balls and white pearly sprays to make these little bouquets to tuck into the tree branches. I used floral picks, and tape to fasten them all together and then I just tuck them evenly around the tree.

They look really beautiful and will be even prettier when I get my white tree. I'm waiting to find just the right one.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a great start to the new year! I have some other projects coming up and will post them when things settle down a bit.

OH, and before I go, you can see by the ticker above that my grand baby will be here any time now! I will post pics of him as soon as he gets here!
