Christmas Tree 2007

Here is my christmas tree for 2007! Finaly up and sparkling as of yesterday. With the help of my dad and sister I was able to have such a nice looking tree. Dad took me to go pick it out. Yes, it is a real tree! We love the nostalga of a real tree along with the smell and uniqueness you get from year to year. Laurie helped me decorate it. We chose to go with the white theme and kept all the ornaments white, opaque, and clear. I made my newspaper trees that I got inspiration for last year from a store in MN called Digs in Northfeild. Laurie made snowflakes that look so great.

Holiday Inspiration.

It's the holiday season and I should be crafting up a storm. I planned and took a weekend trip to Chicago thinking I would get all sorts of crafting done there and was not as sucessfull as I wanted. Which is always what happens. To many places to go, people to see and stores to be shopped.
I did get all sorts of inspiration. Angie and I went to DEPART-ment on Friday night, an Indie Craft Fair. I found many items and if I had all the money in the world would have brought them home with me, even a boy or two. Great inventory there! Maybe I need to move back to Chicago where the inventory is larger. Here is a picture from the Craftzine blog of DEPART-ment.
