welcome to my part of the Christmas open house swap






Merry Christmas everyone!
I thought I'd share my tree and some traditions of mine with you's for the open house.
My tree is a very diferent tree than most people have as there is very little on it that is shiny and bright. Rather my tree has mostly handmade ornies and quite an extensive moose ornie collection that I have been gifted with over the years by my stampin friends and shackies. This year I got a very pretty white glittery rusty tin moose from Jan, thanks Jan, I love it, and actually loved it so much...I made one for Sherri. Speaking of Sherri ( flipflopsfor Sherri) she sent me this adorable sock moose, he's hanging out under my tree, cause I can't stop picking him up...he's just that cute! I decided to put up my prim 4 foot tree this year instead of my big one, as we have A kitten in the house, and he's into EVERYTHING! so I set up my skinny tree on a table and so far so good. This year I baked some goodies for gifts for some of my friends and family..this pan of choclolate almond brownie squares were one of the things I baked along with chocolate chip cookies and apple cranberry bread. let me tell you..these brownie squares shoukld be illegal they are so good.lol Last night I met some friends out and handed out candy treat bags to them. here is a pic of me & Teresa from last night. Christams eve night we go to Df's sisters house for supper and his family's celebration. Christmas day we go to my folks for my familys celebration, we have a wonderful dinner and do the tree. After my family's celebration for the last 3 years my brother and I sneak off for a couple hours and meet some of my friends at an oriental restraunt for a volcano bowl, yumm. I posted a pic from last Years get together since this years hasn't happened yut, tehehe. I then meet df back home and we hang out together for the rest of the afternoon and evening, often he'll watch movies and I'll hang at the shack and work on my first swap due in January. SO thats my holiday agenda and a glimpse at my holiday traditions. I wish you and yours all a very Merry Christmas.

The sock moose is sooooo cute. I still have my sock monkey that my grandmother made me when I was little. I love your prim tree and that volcano bowl looks interesting. Merry Christmas.

Cindi,

Your tree looks great! I love the sock moose. How original! I've never seen one before. Awesome picture of Lucky, too. Does Zig stay put long enough for a photo?

Merry Christmas to you!

Cindi, I know I left you a comment this morning, but it doesn't show up here! Wonder what I did with it. I love your stick tree and the many moose you've got. I don't have a single one! lol. It's wonderful to see the pics of family and friends too. Thanks for letting me be a part of your tour. Merry Christmas

Cindi, your tree is wonderful, make me remember that I forgot to get out my little tree like that, that I usually decorate and put it in the kitchen. My youngest son actually decorated this year, cause I was in the middle of Nursing Finals. He did a wonderful job. I really want to visit Maine one of these days.
