Christmas Tree 2011
It seems every year I get less and less interested in decorating my Christmas tree. I wanted to go with something different this past Christmas -- something simple -- so I cut out some homemade ornaments using my Cricut. I had found the foil papers (by American Crafts) for a great price at TJ Maxx. I used the Holiday Cakes, Inspired Heart, and Winter Woodland cartridges. It wasn't the greatest tree I've ever had, but it got the job done.
This star was my special ornament. My mother (who is responsible for my love of crafting) made this. She never had money for craft supplies, but she could make the greatest things out of trash. We lost her suddenly in 2007. I miss her so much.
