Slippers ~

All I want for Christmas is a pair of slippers...


Nothing as fancy as these tiny little paper ones I made


This one reminds me of the Little One's sparkly red dress up shoes she wore when she was little. Hers were more like Dorothy's. She wore them everywhere, and when they got too tight we'd go get the next size up


I love creating new ornies for the tree each year. It's fun to open the boxes and see all the different ones through the years ~ of course I don't throw any away


We got a much smaller tree this year, so I didn't put all the kids handmade ornies on ~ that may change since they're so sentimental to me. The girls haven't had any interest in helping to decorate, so guess I finally got my "grown up" tree. We'll see what the Big guy says this weekend when he comes home ~ he's my most sentimental one!


Tonight when hubby came home he asked if glittering could be an addiction "because I think you've got it!" Creating is definitely my way of staying sane during the holidays ~ it's crazy out there! The other day Big Girl and I were looking for parking and some guy started spazzing out in his car (because he had a stop sign,) we lost it cracking up, it was sooo funny (poor guy!) Big Girl said "he needs some glitter!

I hope you're enjoying all the joys of the season!

I am secretly looking forward to a grown up tree! There was a lot of interest from the little one and the big girls hung a only few ornaments....the tide is definitely changing. Think I'll glitter something this weekend - thanks for the inspiration - talk to you soon!
