Deck Your Halls.....

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving/Holiday weekend?  We sure did...we had my family over on Thursday, did a little midnight Black Friday shopping, some house decorating and watched Hallmark and holiday movies :)  There was also a lot of eating and drinking a lot of hot cocoa LOL.

On Sunday we got our real tree from our fave Christmas tree farm and it was a beautiful day out. I will share more pics over at my other blog here tomorrow!  We got that tree up (only 11 ft this year instead of 13 which was too big for this gal)...although we are decorating it tonight. So that means I got 6 trees done & one more to go...just 7 this year I think. I can't put any in the basement since its under renovation right now...too much trouble to move it while we're working.  But the house is looking pretty, holiday lights give such a warm glow and the house smells yummy too.  I'm hoping to get all the outside decorations up on Wednesday and then I will be mostly done with the decorating.  I promise to share the pics this weekend when everything is all done & photos have been taken.

Here are a few photos from our Holiday Tree Hunting at Snickers Gap Farm in VA :)

You can hop over to my other blog to see my dining room makeover

Me & the teens..it was a beautiful day to get a tree! 


James doing his thing....TIMBER ;)

Deck The Halls

Today the Magnolia-licious Team B has their projects up for inspiration for the current Tuesday Challenge "Doilies & Frilly Cut-Outs" (that runs till Jan 12th).  So happy to be coloring & crafting again and not be in so much pain..great feeling!  You can find all the details for this challenge & the Holiday Challenge at the Challenge Blog HERE...we'd love to have you join in & you have lots of time too! 

**Pre-Order the NEW "Little Moscow Collection" Here **

I used this new cutie "The Day Before Xmas Noel Tilda" from the Winter Wonderland Collection...love her lil' footie jammies!  I went with non-traditional colors along with a hefty does of white to ground it...I love bright, fun colors this time of year.  I used a lot of dies for my frilly-doily accents but I went with more of a snowflake doily effect...non-traditional right? LOL!
The trees are a die here as well and then I added some MS Glitter Snow & glitter to them to make them pop.  The background was embossed with a CB folder and then added some La La Land corners (made with their die) in green.  The sentiment and buttons are from Paper Trey Ink and so are the lil' star stamps I did around the image in hot pink & green.  Some ribbon, pom-pom trim and bakers twine finish it all off.

She was colored with Copics and then I added some Stickles to her sweet NOEL banner and in the corners for some fun sparkle.  I love the sentiment...perfect with this image :)

That's all for me today, hope you have a wonderful week!
I'll be decorating...and decorating some more ;)


I appreciate all your lovely comments and taking the time to stop by! hugz,Suzanne
