On the 1st Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me...

...a decorated Christmas tree.  Yip...my two honeys decorated our tree last night while I was working downstairs in the studio.

It was so wonderful this morning to wake up to the tree already done on the 1st day of December.  Some of you may be follwing Ali Edwards this month while completing your own "December Daily."  I have decided to do my own version and take a picture each day that brings joy to my heart about this wonderful holiday season.  Here is my 1st one:

Each ornament on our tree is a snowman.  This is one of my favorites.  He chunky-grubby with a carrot nose...can he be any cuter?

This week I started getting the itch to make something "Christmasy."  I took the chipboard Christmas keychain from Maya Road and decorated them.  Take a look:

Candy cane with red Stickles.  I used the Fiskars holly punch and added a red button.

I covered the tree with green swirl paper from Reminisce and added red bling jewels.

I covered the ornament with red Bazzill, used an EK Success circle punch to punch out a center from Imaginise paper, added a title, star and button to complete.  These sure got me into the Christmas spirit!
