Again I will start this post by saying, I havent posted for ages...
I haven't posted for ages. I could give you a list of explanations/excuses,
but you will have heard them all before, so I won't.
My only crafty contribution to Christmas 2011 are these Christmas Tree's made from old magazines. Mrs Bessie made one and I thought they were so cool I had to have a go. I am not a lover of Christmas Decorations and would be quite happy with just a tree, I have a positive hatred for tinsel, I hate it more than peel offs and devils dandruff aka flowersoft. My husband however just LOVES everything tacky where Chrimbo Decs are concerned and this is a bone of contention each year, but we have finally compromised and Matt is becoming the new Kirsty Allsop.... We have nice twiggy garland type things hanging from every possible place you can hang things from and he bought about a zillion glass vases and filled them with various things like nuts, fruits, lights, sweets, baubles, candles, fir cones, holly etc.. you get the drift - and my magazine trees adorn the hall table - looking all very festive and only one bit of tinsel is in sight (fair is fair he didn't ask for the foil garland things to be pinned to the ceiling)
Ever since we got married we have bought one tree decoration a year, two since both children have been born... we try to find something that is significant to that year
This years tree decoration is possibly my favourite
Just like my favourite dog!
If you would like to have a go at making a magazine tree, Mrs Bessie first got the idea from
make sure you take a look at the rest of her blog, its fab!
Happy Christmas to you All and a Happy Creative New Year xx
