Friends to the rescue!
After reading my thinly-veiled cry for help regarding an un-ornamented Christmas tree, two of my Boston friends stepped in with sweet solutions.
SRH sent me a list of all these amazing crafty ideas for hand-made ornaments. If I don't set anything on fire or staple my finger to the couch during the crafting process, I will post some pictures of the finished products later this week.
MadDawg sent me a beautiful two-sided star (pictured above) to grace the top of the tree. Isn't it cool?
One side says "Hope" which is kind of my theme word du jour.* The other side is a fun and festive collage of images.
[If you're wondering what Bill Cosby, a puppy, and the Rotunda have to do with Christmas, then I suggest you take some time to examine your heart and see if the answer doesn't already dwell within you. Because it's pretty obvious to me.]
I'm excited to get my Christmas tree gussied up and looking festive. And I'm thankful for sweet friends!
*Yeah, that's right, I speak French. What's it to you, buster??
