finally...

....the skull tree! Please excuse the colorful, competing background in the pics....lol..Apparantly it's hard to find an uncluttered space in 420 square feet of apartment....lol...
...we got the tree at Michaels...=) It's made of feathers and is actually pretty small! I made the lil ornaments, and I would've loved to give it more, but alas..not time. Maybe after christmas...he he. And here's the twig tree: we put a few branches into a vase and filled the bottom with sand to keep it stable....=) It was especially hard to get this sucker on film cuz there's an apartment building across the way with lights on and there's always cars driving by,a nd there's also a big streetlamp..so the lighting sucks!! ha ha....oh, and I especially love the gigantic extension cord on the ledge beside the vase...it's my favorite....lol (...not!...said a la Borat)
...and here is a Fancy Pants pages I finished up a few weeks ago....=) ...and this is my cute lil nephew...Mandy took the picture in September last time we were in Calgary =)
...And last but not least: Michelle was wonderfully awesome and sent me a lil package of goodies!! She's the best!...she knows me so well just from my blog..he he...=) This little dude is my favorite....(see his astrology books??) and the skull socks totally rock....

..Thanks Michelle!! =) And on the same day, I also got an ornament from the Red Velvet Swap from Jessica...her blog, funky finds, totally rocks!! She links up some yummy stuff! Anyways, the ornament is soo cute, had to share. =) Love happy mail days!! eek!
.....anyways, must get back to work...=) I am loving eggnog and christmas oranges right now..why can't they stay around all year? I'm also in love with Rum balls...hopefully I'll have one this year...yum! The pile of presents I've made is growing, and I just have the parents' (albeit, the most daunting one...) left to do and all the wrapping...fun, fun! Can't believe it's in 5 days!! Hope everyone is doing great!! It's oddly like a sunny day in early Spring here today...very weird! Thank god, though, cuz yesterdays gale-force winds almost ruined my lil polka-dotted umbrella...(sigh) happy day!!

OMG Michelle, I SOO LOVE your little pink tree! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! You could package that little puppy up (along WITH those GREAT ornaments & topper OF COURSE) and send it to me if you ever get tired of it! LOL

LOVE your twig tree as well. I just might have to make one of my own. I have some KILLER bright red branches off of my red-twigged dogwood that would make a GREAT one!

Hope your hvaing a good one. Thanks soo much for the great pics.

Take Care,
Amy

I love the trees, Michelle! Hazel wanted me to buy her that pink feather tree at Michael's, but we decided on a pink tinsel one instead. (I REALLY wanted the feather one, but we're visiting my mom, and they didn't want to be stuck with a pink feather tree after we left to go home.) LOL! The twig tree pictures are actually quite beautiful! And, yay for happy mail! Hope you get all of your projects done this weekend! Oh, and your new pages are cute! :0)

Michelle said...

Your tree is adorable! I knew it would be yummy! Love the twigs too. So you've got me hooked on the fancy pants felt. How and where do you apply for the fp dt? I'd love to try for it...

Your layouts are always so inspiring to me. Of course I don't have my scrap stuff with me here at work.

I'm so glad you get your stuff in time. I'm thrilled that you love the owl. I was so incredibly surprised when I saw it. Have a happy holiday and a happy boxing day!
