The Last Thing ...

We are officially looking alot like Christmas! Well, almost. I've decorated and last night we went out and got a real tree. I just have to decorate the tree and that will be the last thing. Oh, except for the shopping and having people over and visiting people etc ... lol. It's such a busy time of year.

I try not to decorate inside the exact same way every year but I find some things you just can't change. So alot of my 'this years pictures' look alot like my 'last years pictures' ... lol. Oh well ...

Heres some of the festive things at my house this year;



The top part of the above layout is the front of my house. The window is my bedroom window above the garage. It looks so pretty from the inside too. We also have another tree on the lawn that is lit. Next year I want some above our garage door too ... but I have to 'gradually' add more. My husband thinks we have plenty ... lol. The bottom part of the layout is my back yard. We also have the upper deck railing lit.



My good old motion detecting Santa who greets everyone who walks in the door - "Ho,Ho,Ho ... Merry Christmas - Welcome to our Home". Ok, sometimes we turn it off because it does get a bit irritating every time you walk by ...lol.



I try to change this railing a little bit every year so this year I added some candle cluster lights I had. But basically it's the same every year.

Today I'm decorating the tree. It's a Balsam Fir and a little less 'shapely' then our last years tree. But they always look better decorated so I'm anxious to see the results.

Sooooooooo ... I decided since it's Christmas time to have a promotion for all of December at LLL Creations Dollar Mart.



You get the full set of upper Case, full set of lower case, numbers 0-9 and symbols ~ that's 66 pieces! And it's yours FREE with a $5.00 purchase at LLL Creations Dollar Mart~!



It's the same alpha I used to make some Christmas word art 2 posts ago. But for the alpha I didn't add any decorations because I don't think plaid is strictly for Christmas. It could be used all year long.

See larger view of the alpha here ...

So hop on over the LLL Creations Dollar Mart and see how many items you can get for only $5.00 - after all, it is a dollar store ... lol.

And ... I made some Chrome Word Art and put it in the store today;



You get 6 Hanging Chrome Word Art for only $2.00.
PRESENTS - HO HO HO - SANTA - JINGLE - FESTIVE - SCROOGE
You can get them here or just go through LLL Creations under the Word Art category.



You can see a few for size on a 12x12 inch page in my Christmas layouts at the beginning of this post. I did them a little different then my normal Hanging Chrome Word Art and added a few decorations to them. I like the way they turned out.
