Decorating for Christmas!

I Can't believe Christmas is on its way!   My birthday was on the 29th and its mine and Paul's tradition to pick up a tree on my birthday... making it one of my favorite days! I got the best gifts this year from my Paulie! A silhouette Cameo!!! It is so amazing!! I cant stop playing with it!! I made lots of new ornaments this year too that I want to share.... more exciting news, we started working on the nursery. I have not shared the sex of the baby yet because my doctor is not 100% sure.I originally wanted to be surprised so when we got the "big" ultrasound I made it very clear to the technician that I did not want to know.....well,  now I want to know.... I go back in 2 weeks and hopefully we will know for sure this time!!

I paint these birdhouse ornaments every year, this year I chose to paint them all the same, I have about a dozen on the tree
I read a tutorial on how to make these adorable pom pom ornaments and I am truly obsessed

                      larger wreaths for the tree

And of course with my new favorite toy I made these tiny doily ornaments. These might be my favorite.

I sewed these stockings, there all a little different in shape, not intended, but I do really love them

    And a quick shot of the work that has started in the nursery. 
     we added the wainscoting,but still cant decide on a color..


  1. I love those pompom ornaments you made, Tina! Great job on the stockings, too. I keep saying I am going to make new ones for us.

  2. I love the pom pom ornaments! I can see you have a great taste for this kind of things :))
