HM {Christmas}

I am trying to continue on my theme of a Handmade Christmas. A totally Handmade Christmas will be un-achievable, especially when it comes to "boy" presents but I am going to try my darnedest.

I was totally sick of all the tinsel and glitter that had collected in my Christmas storage bag and left most of it in the bag. I replaced it with some good old traditional paper chains to decorate the tree. Miss G "helped", thank goodness she needed a sleep today so i could finish it. Staplers aren't her thing apparently.

 In my studio you can see more {than usual} evidence of my hoarding past, art supplies/paper and card are a huge weakness. Seriously...I had gotten rid of a lot but I am so pleased I had kept these papers. They were perfect for turning into a Christmas paper bunting for the fire place.

Last year I made a Parliament of Owls and got to put them back on the tree...naaaw they are a bit cute. Pretty sure the tute i used for these owls came from Burda Style.

I also placed some of the pressed washers on the tree for the first time. I have two others that say peace and love as well as this one.
I may look like a Christmas freak but i can tell you I am usually far from it. This is the earliest i have ever put up the tree and we weren't home last Christmas and had some family tragedy to deal with so I feel like I need to get a bit more festive this year. Especially for the little person of the house. ...It's always worth it.
Joy - Peace - Love 
and all that....
