It's beginning to look...

...a lot like Christmas.

I've been on a crafting binge the past month.
You should see my work room.
I look like a hoarder.
On second thought, you should not see it.
(Sorry, Cathy.)

I could blame lots of things...
First Christmas in our new home.
Having a child old enough to notice.

So many things I want to do.
But I'm cheap thrifty.
And we pay for things with cash.
And we don't have a "holiday decor" envelope...
yet. :)

Here's what I've been working on:

Hung vintage ornaments-
$1.99 for a huge bag at Goodwill

Burlap wreath- 
$1 wreath from Dollar Tree + leftover burlap from stockings
Candles- 
jars + stuff I had = free
Stockings- 
burlap from fabric store. Maybe $10?

Tree skirt- 
burlap + red IKEA fabric. Probably around $5.

Hung the pallet tree- 
pallet from roadside stand + nails = free

Burlap wreath-
leftover burlap from stockings + $1 wreath
I should really go get more burlap to fill it in more.
But, I probably won't.
I'm lazy like that.

Have I bored you to death?
Sorry.

I've grounded myself from crafting until I clean up my mess.
It might be awhile.
We'll see!

"hey! you can still see the floor."
pre-craft show you could not see it in my crafy space.

I love it all! Did you follow a tutorial for the tree skirt? If so would you mind sharing it? I need to make one ASAP :)

Love your crafts! Didn't bore me at all! My craft spot is in my room, it is spotless at the moment because I am not crafting and that makes me sad...However, I have about 1,000,000 things to do before Christmas...so I better get messy!
