Happy December! As much as I abhor the cold, I still can't get enough of this time of year, and love every day of December. The girls and I will be hanging a candy cane (organic and delicious, in soft, sweet colors) on the tree for every day till Christmas.
Each night, we will take one off the tree, break then share it, and read a Christmas story together while sitting under the twinkly lights. It's a tradition that I did with my boys when they were little, and I am so glad to continue it with the Fairy Grand Girls. They aren't here every night, but I do my best to keep up with the candy canes. Poor me, I have to eat a tasty treat all by myself when the little ones are at their mommy's home!
I've printed off this calendar for myself and am busily filling it in for as many Christmas parties and activities as I can. If you'd like to do the same, click on the image to open it in a larger window before printing it, so it won't be all pixelly.
These antlers are from Dollar Tree and I've added some Stickles glitter and millinery to them, along with a few sparkly beads and of course, jingle bells. It's not December without jingle bells!
And you can never be too festive. I think the antlers are just the right touch to add some celebration to any outfit this season.
What else is new around here?
I have been dying more trees.
Yep, MORE TREES. And I even got quite a few into the Etsy shop.
And I am getting back into the angel wing groove too.
Here are some that Sugarwings dyed. Last year, she made some money selling trees, so she is hoping to have some repeat luck. Although, she doesn't seem to get what money is yet. I'm setting aside her earnings for when she needs them.
