Martha Stewart Doesn't Have Kids

We decorated our Christmas tree today. I'm going to let the pictures speak for themselves but I'm going to point out a couple of number of things.

First of all, we have the tree in a corner with very specific measurements so our tree is wedge shaped and missing some branches

Second of all, I saw a blog post last week about a woman who had made a fabric light garland and I thought it was really pretty. So when you see the light garland it was thanks to Kelly's blog hop! Actually, my non-crafty (his words, not mine) husband ended up finishing the last half of it this afternoon. Thanks Dave!

Third of all, I made our tree topper. It's a little dorky but Dave and I weren't happy with ANYTHING we saw in the stores. If you have an awesome tutorial for making a fabulous tree topper please let me know!

Fourth of all, Sam's ornament cluster. 'Nuff said!

Fifth of all, Rachel was just as interested as taking ornaments off the tree as putting them on. Again, 'nuff said!

Sixth of all, in memory of my grandma the first ornament on our tree today was a crocheted snowflake she made for me about twenty years ago. Love it!

Now for the picture overload. Click on any one picture to make it larger. (That's mostly for my mom.)


  1. Awww, the tree turned out so cute with your handmade garland and topper. I love it!

  2. We don't have a tree topper, which is mainly because we haven't found anything that works for us either. So I'm thinking I may need to make my own tree topper eventually if we still can't find something.

  3. I like your topper! I also don't really have one since they're all so hideous. My mom has a really pretty fabric angel that she puts up but it wasn't meant to be a topper.

    Also, the star of David is pretty neat ;-)

  4. Lol I love this and love the appropriate title!


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
