Christmas Decorations

So I have been in a non festive mood this holiday season. Putting up the tree and the decorations has helped some.

My favorite part of decorating this year was that since I built a mantle over the fireplace I was able to display all of my Santa collection together and hang the stockings from it.
So here are a few of my favorites around the house.

This is our mini 12 days of Christmas tree. My mom got us these ornaments a few years ago and the tree was an after Christmas clearance tree a few years ago as well. There are 12 ornaments, each one painted to go along with the 12 days of Christmas. They are really beautiful ornaments.

The mantle with my santa collection on top and the stockings all hung.

The bookcase with all the snowmen stuff we have.

And finally the tree all decorated. We got a 9 foot douglas fir this year. I fell in love with the tall tree, and we brought it home.
Today I reorganized all my completed scrapbook layouts, and cleaned and perged my scrapbook desk and closet. So I am enjoying the clean space now.
Now to go create on it.
I will share soon my Christmas cards I created this year. I want to wait until I get them out in the mail.
