To make it extra special my friend Kimber and I spent 8 hours together making homemade ornaments. Of course that's considering I'm very particular about the way I do things and wanted them perfect. Too bad I didn't have enough foresight to see my son and his friends ripping, smashing and basically destroying them.
Oh well! It was still worth it. So just to share a glimpse of our humble Christmas, here are a few photos of some of my favorite things!
The Tree: We went with a red, green and brown theme. Reminiscent of the 1800's.
School Book Ornament: Although I'd probably be shunned for dismembering books back in the day I just didn't have a budget to buy more books I wouldn't read. Oh well. I got my moneys worth, right?
Sphere ornament: So cute and so very time consuming. A circle hand die cut can be your best friend!
Little Toys: Just to make it more personal we adorned the tree with small toys we've received over the years.
