Oh Christmas Tree

A lot less mess than the real thing (and less worry that the tree will burst into flames) and definitely lacking in the pine scent (candles to the rescue). I don't know... I never liked the idea of hacking down a tree for a few weeks display.

I mean, if it's to become paper for my crafting obssession, that's different. A noble cause worthy of sacrifice!

Anyways, I think the tree is done. Or very close to it. Maybe a few more ornaments and some ribbon. I wanted to go with all red but it looked too dark so I threw in some gold here and there.

Prior to my Rebel, all of my Christmas tree pictures looked like this. Either washed out with the flash or really, really yellow. Thank god for software.

Tonight is my jewelry/martini party. So I need to practice making chocolate and apple martinis. 10 bucks says I'll be drunk before my friends arrive.

H - E - Double Hockey Sticks

Thanks to Ocho for linking this blog: Hello Kitty Hell. Very funny. It also serves to remind Fizzienub how LUCKY he is.

Hello Kitty condoms?!

Also, my sister decided to create her own blog (and update it every 5 minutes). She also thought it would be fun to go shopping during Black Friday Hell

Me? I'm still eating turkey leftovers and napping every 4 hours. That's my hell.

Hodge Podge

Busy, busy weekend.

Picked up my baby with the new bumper. The body shop washed and cleaned my car, complete with that new car smell. What's up with that? Lots of card making with friends on Saturday followed by a dinner party. Alas, I forgot to take my camera with me so no pictures of the crazy DDR night.

This is a slap out to one of my readers. I've been told from a reliable source that after viewing my cat's yoga photo, you said I "need to get a job". Says the man who tells his girlfriend to put him to work: like caulking the home (check, done that), cooking dinner (on a daily basis AND I make him lunch), weeding the garden (been there, done that), painting a room in the living room (I did my whole house - talk to the hand) and finally physical satisfaction (PUHLEESE). I'm pretty "magical" too. So there. And yes, I am sticking my tongue out at you.

Anyways... I've started my Christmas decorating but I am undecided.

I put up these garlands this evening but I'm not sure if I like them. Nor am I certain about the red circles on the fridge. Hmmmm.

I asked Fizzienub what he thought when he came home and he paused for a long time. Not a good sign. After a moment, he said, "They're not your usual elegant and simple style". He went on to comment that the smaller garlands look Mardi Gras-ish and he didn't like my hand-made red/green circles at all. I gave him a timeout.

So, I need your opinions. Too garish, tacky? Or festive and cheery?
