So YIKES guys, this is my Christmas Tree! Luke and I managed to kill our ficus over the past few months through a combination of each of us thinking the other one was watering it and the temperature change which always seems to make it a bit sad in come winter time. Anyway this is usually our Christmas tree so we hung up the ornaments and lights in the hopes that it will come back from the dead. At the time I didn’t think it was very funny that our tree died, but now I sort of think this is the botanical version of an analogy about my holiday season. Funny Funny Ficus, jokes on me after all!
Anyway, even though my tree is deader than a doornail I have still been lighting it up while I’m packing and enjoying the beautiful ornaments everyone made for the swap. I had such a great time making my Narwhals and checking my mail every day until all the ornaments got here. MAJOR thanks to Kelli for organizing this fantastic swap and to all the ladies who participated. Now I’d recommend leaving this sad ass tree and heading over to check out some real holiday trees!
Hope you have an excellent holiday season. I may or may not be back here before the new year, hard to say with recent events but I will definitely be back after the new year with lots of new and exciting things including patterns, special tutorials, finished projects, inspiration ramblings, a 2012 recap and 2013 goal list, loads of stuff.
I also want to say THANK YOU to everyone who left such kind and wonderful comments on my post yesterday. This is definitely a difficult time for all parties involved and your thoughts and words mean more than I can say. I’m going to try to respond to each of you in the comments over the next few days but I just want to say now, seriously, you guys are way too nice and I am beyond lucky to have such amazing, talented, awesome ladies (only ladies commented so sorry to any boyz who may read this site) as readers and friends. So much love you guys and I’m sending it RIGHT BACK AT YOU! Okay time to go sort through a bunch of shoes before dawn arrives. Someone with size 6 feet is in for a treat at the Addison Switchboard next week… poet poet.
