Well, it seems as if Christmas has finally made its way around once again!  Each year it seems as if time moves faster and faster, or maybe it’s because I’m older than I once was I notice it more.  Nonetheless, I am always overjoyed by Christmas Mornings.  They have been so fun for us, and there has never been a dull moment watching all of the kids open their gifts.  The expression on each of their faces is enough to last a lifetime.  And, I can’t forget about my husband’s wonderful gift-giving talents.  He always knows exactly what I want, and I struggle keeping up with all that he spends on me.  Not because I don’t like to buy him stuff, but my love language is Acts of Service, so I tend to focus more on making sure he is fed, the house is clean, he has pajamas, and etc.  

But, Christmas is not just about gifts, even though they are nice.  I think it stretches a lot further than that and has such a greater meaning.

I just love Christmas!  It is absolutely my favorite time of the year, and it’s not because of all the presents…even though I’m pretty sure my hubby bought me the sliding compound miter saw I’ve been dreaming about.  It’s about all the simple things…like Christmas movies, gingerbread cookies, church plays, parades, tree lighting ceremonies, community gatherings, the spirit of positivity, and of course decorations.  So, it only seems fitting that I could show you my budget friendly Christmastime centerpiece…and sneak in some pictures of our local parade.

It’s been a long time, but I can finally say I started my Christmas decorating!  So, today I am sharing a lovely Burlap Christmas tree that literally took minutes and cost hardly anything.  Being that I decided to change my entire theme this year, I have had to literally start from scratch.  So imagine how happy I was to find out that ribbon was on sale for 70% off at Michaels, especially considering I had to buy everything.  Somehow last year's burnt orange and turquoise just doesn’t go with red and green plaid.  

So, now that I have finally finished shopping for all the supplies, I am hard at work finishing my overly ambitious list.  My husband actually called me a great “visionary” the other day.  Of course,  he then went on to say “but you don’t always finish what you start.”  What?!  So, you already know what my goal is for 2016…I aim to be a “finisher”!  However, I’m still waiting for my husband to pick up the Christmas tree from the local fire department…that is just a couple of miles from our house…that stays open late hours…but who cares about his “procrastination”?  Ok, jokes aside, back to decorating.

I see these little "cone" shaped trees in all the stores, at a pretty hefty price tag no doubt.  So, I decided to make my own, for a LOT less.  And the best part is this tree is so versatile.  Just simply changing the size of the cone or the ribbon, adding some embellishments, or even a different topper can completely change the look to fit just what you need.

I decided that I would try my hand at decorating some Easter Eggs with nail polish using the water marble technique.  It should be simple right?  Well, let me tell you the answer…not at first!  It really took some trial and error to figure it out, so I decided that I would share ALL the tips and tricks so you can make these wonderful eggs easily because they are beautiful when finished.  I mean the possibilities are endless!  And the best part is they work with all types of material such as real eggs, paper mache eggs, and even Styrofoam or plastic eggs.  You can put these designs on anything...that you don’t want to eat of course!  Once I got the process going it was really fun creating different designs and seeing how they turn out each time.  No matter what material you use, the water marble nail art makes beautiful eggs that you can use to decorate anywhere!
