I just discovered this thread and now I'm excited to get my tree up.  We usually buy a cultered tree from Nova Scotia and they tend to dry out quickly so I don't like to put it up til late. 

We used to cut our own tree, but one time we ended up getting lost in the woods for 2 hours.  DH says we were never lost since we could always follow our tracks in the snow, but it sure felt like we were lost.  Try dragging a christmas tree and a dog with about 10 extra pounds of snow clumped onto his fur out of the Labrador wild!  Grin  Not my smartest move.

Okay, so don't make fun of me. haha. My boyfriend and I live in a small apartment (and we have for two years now), so this is our little tree. It's a white, fiber-optic tree and it's actually kind of pretty when it's all lit up. Sorry the picture of it lit is a little blurry.. I tried the best I could!




I desperately need new stockings. I'm going to try to make some for next year when everything goes on sale.



Happy Holidays!

oh, i love to see everyone's pictures!!  this evening i rearranged my living room (we got a free loveseat, yay!) so now i'm not so sure where i'll be putting my tree.  Undecided  it'll be the first time i've had a real tree in four years, i'm so excited!

i'm just taking a break from making some ornaments out of old christmas cards.  i think i'm going to make them into a garland to hang over the doorway from the living room to the dining room.

so far in terms of decorating, i haven't done much.  but i did light a fire in the fireplace and hang a (handmade, of course) wreath outside  Grin

Okay, no one make fun of my other trees!
This is the one in our bedroom. I tried to take a picture of it all lit up and purdyfull but of course, it wouldnt do it! Im so upset because it is stunning at night. Also ignore the irioning board. My husband is in the Air National Guard and he begrudignly drug it out to iron his uniform! Its a 6ft slim with white lights and small gold balls.

This is the tree in my craft room. My DH likes to call this my airplane because apparently I have enough lights crammed onto this little 18 incher that the planes flying by may confuse it with a landing strip. Hes just jealous because the branches are irridecent, lol!

So we bought our tree this weekend after all!  My other half is away a lot so we thought we'd better get it while we had the time.  I have taken photos, just need to find the cable for the camera...

Here are a couple of pictures...





The only home made bits at the moment are the felt stockings but I'm going to keep adding to it!

I like seeing everyone's pictures! Aside from the icicle lights that hang in our front window year-round (my mom loves them  Roll Eyes), the only decor we have up is the wreath my mom made, and in my room, I have a little three-foot tree on which I'll be putting Harry Potter ornaments made by SidekickFancy.

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!
