Boys Just Wanna Craft Fun!

Okay I am sure some of you women have men in your lives that like to craft stuff.  My brother can craft, my hubby not so much!  (he is artistic and has ability but "crafting" no)While we were making our 
Christmas countdown clipboards Hubby just slept on the couch then went out side to do "MAN STUFF".  When our friends Josia and Tara came over Josia started messing around with the papers and decided to "build" a house for his wife.
Josia was really into the construction.  He built this very vibrant home with lovely argyle window shutters. 
Cute huh?
I guess this got my hubby interested so he decided to make his take on Christmas decor.  He chose to make a Christmas tree and wanted everyone to know how to cut one down too.
See its cute! Look at it from another angle.
You see it right?  The chain saw? 
He even made it orange like the one he has.  To make it more authentic looking he added black glitter for the chain.

Does your Hubby craft??

Christmas Mantle

Finally 3 days before Christmas I managed to get my mantle decorated.  I went simple this year.
Pardon the photos.  It looked really great in real life.
I made the wreath with some extra decorations I had from the Christmas tea this year.
I purchased the lamps from K-Mart and filled them with tiny ornaments.  I usually have a star above my mantle so I just changed it to a blue one.
These lanterns are functional. After Christmas I will remove the ornaments they are oil lamps and they will be nice when the power goes out.
Yes a really bad photo. I know.  I purchased these three Santas a few years ago at the Dollar tree and I LOVE them.  I used some battery operated lights I bought at IKEA and stick them in to the Santas.  They give a really nice effect in person.
Next year I will do more decorating but this year it seems like Christmas just came too early!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

I wish you all a Joyous Christmas.
May your day be filled with the love of Jesus.
