Mid-Week Peek at My Week

My mid- week post this week is mostly about one thing - Christmas! While the rest of you are probably preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving, I've been in the midst of putting up Christmas decorations.

I. love. Christmas.

Sooooo it's been a great week!

As is our custom, the first decorations put up is Brock's Christmas tree. I put it together and add the lights - and the tree topper. Then Brock adds all of his ornaments. He did a good job!

As the week progressed we now have up the main tree (in its picket fence), the International tree (with ornaments from MANY countries), Brittney's tree (with ornaments made by Brittney from when she was just a youngster clear to the present time), several nativity sets (including one that my husband brought me from Israel), a set of ornaments handmade by my sister (who scroll saws the most amazing designs), etc. I still have to put up the huge village (gifted to me piece by piece each year by our oldest son Jeremy) and our Hallmark ornament collection (that suspends from the ceiling).

Did I mention that I love Christmas???

I've only managed to make 8 cards this week, but that's okay.

One of the cards I made from his tag:

You probably saw the tag on my blog last Friday - for the PDE Linky Party "Tags" Challenge. Well.... I don't do tags; I don't use tags. But I had to make one... so I did.

I decided to re-cycle it onto a card:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Oh, and in case you're wondering, I give this week TWO THUMBS UP!

Nice repurposing, Jeanette! I think the tag - and the card - are both lovely!

Fits nicely with the holidays upon us!

Your fabulous tag makes an equally fabulous holiday card, Jeanette. That poinsettia is a stunning beauty!

Love your tag turned card Jeanette - it's fabulous. Your house sounds as though it will be wonderfully decorated by the time you have finished.
