There were times when I wasn’t sure I was going to make it.
I’ve had this ridiculously awful cough, a drink a jar of cough syrup a day, give yourself a headache from all the hacking, try not to breath to hard or else you’ll start again, kind of cough, for a month now. I’m am looking forward to nothing more than taking a couple days off and working on something I feel like working on, without any holiday deadlines attached.
But knowing me, that won’t last long. I’ve already got ideas going for Christmas.
I’m sorry these pictures are so awful. Winter light is hard for all of us, but my house especially tends toward tomb-like this time of year. No windows on the front of the house makes it cooler in the summer, but also really really dark. Plus everywhere a tree goes is a corner, so even darker.
I think as the years go on I’ll find some great scraggly Charlie Brown Christmas trees and spray paint one silver and the other acid green, but for this year I just couldn’t justify buying more trees when I’ve got so many in the garage already, so I just had to make do with what I had.
I also really should have taken pictures earlier in the month. Our little boy cat Gizmo has taken both of these trees apart so many times all the ornaments gradually made their way further and further up to the top of the tree.
Thank you all so much for playing along with me. Thanks to all of you who bought patterns and played along in the giveaways. This has been a whole lot of work, but so much fun. I’m obviously out of my mind doing so much all at once, but I just couldn’t help it. You gotta follow the ideas where they lead, right?
Hope you all have a wicked good Halloween, and no one loses a filling on any caramel apples.
