It's a sunny, blue-skied Saturday morning in Denver.
I'm still in my 'jams and just finished addressing a handful of Christmas cards.
I had come to terms with not sending any this year...but I eventually caved and made (& glittered!) just over a dozen or so last night. I've re-heated my coffee three times already. A really bad Lifetime movie starring Stephen Curtis Chapman is on in the background.
Our cute little Christmas tree is still sparkling in the corner, despite the empty skirt she stands above. This is definitely my favorite tree we've ever decorated. She's just a skinny lil' thing and her branches are awkwardly scattered, but each one of our favorite, colorful, sparkly ornaments are perfectly displayed.
I think I will wrap a few things to put under there today since Dan and I are planning on doing our own mini-Christmas soon before we head home to California next week... but we had an ugly "communication lapse" this morning as he was heading out to door to his bible study... so I'm just not yet in the mood.
It stinks, but it happens.
But there's a fun handmade ornament linkup happening today at miss FunkyJunk's so I thought I'd share a few photos of the ornaments I pieced together last weekend using scraps of fabric from my various projects over the past few years. I got the idea for them here! I absolutely love how they turned out and will probably make more next year!
(especially if I get around to doing any fun craft fairs... oh 2012, your goals are lofty so far!)

hmm, how'd that goose sneak in there?!
