Decked The Halls!

I have been very busy creating for my 12 Days of Cricut Handmade Giveaway and just finally finished decorating our home for Christmas! 

 Here is a shot of our tree.  This is the biggest one yet I believe!
 I took this one from up in the balcony of our living room.  You can see my sons little library to the left of it!
 Here is the stair case all decked out!

 My husband and I have known each other since grade school, we went to the same school.  These are ornaments we made, not sure which grade we were in.  I always hang them side by side!
 I made several of these ornaments after September 11 and gave them all gifts to just about everyone.  It will always be a favorite to me, reminds me how lucky I am.
I picked up this little wooden box at an auction, just knowing I could do something cute with it!  I snipped some boughs off of the tree, added a candle, some bulbs and pine cones and ta-da!  I am thinking of stenciling Silent Night on the front of the box in white.....what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by and please enter my 12 Days of Cricut Handmade Giveaway!

    Here's another idea to consider:- Fa, La, La
    (boughs of holly). First thing that came to my mind when I saw your box. :-)

  5. BEAUTIFUL decorations!!! I LOVE that you and your husband have your grade school ornaments...that is just a cute story!!!!


  6. Gorgeous tree! I love your stairway garland too. I have not even started decorating - too busy making gifts and cards :) Hoping to get my tree done this weekend! I love the box with the decorations inside! Silent Night would be beautiful :)
