I Love Christmas!

love Christmas and live it all year aroundI confess, I am a Christmas 'nutt'.  :-)

Like many of you, I window shop for Christmas all year long. The Christmas tree usually goes up the weekend after Thanksgiving and reluctantly comes down mid-January. If I had a larger home, I would have more than one tree. Christmas music - from country to traditional (preferred) to classical - plays in the background from the beginning of November until the day I take down the tree. I love hearing the Messiah and classical Christmas music before Thanksgiving, my favorite vocals until 6 pm Christmas eve and gentle/jazz Christmas eve until midnight and thereafter until that holiday feeling passes and life returns to 'normal' - whatever that is. :-) 

In this Christmas decorating blog you will find decorating tips, ideas and instructions for the Christmas ornaments I make for myself, family and friends.  Have fun looking at the articles. Try some of these ideas yourself then, come back and comment on the results. Your comments, tips or ideas are welcomed. And, I would love to also see photos of what you've done.

Be sure to take a look at I Love Christmas website bursting with unique, handmade decorations that will add a glamorous note to your holiday celebration such as custom made 100% silk Christmas tree skirts, glass crystal Christmas tree garlands, glass Christmas ornaments, custom-made fancy Christmas ornament hooks and predecorated, prelit mini 18" Christmas trees created by Ann Laurie, my gracious stepmom.

Blog is added to all year around - not just during the Christmas holiday season. I will be adding my own ideas and tips as well as useful resources, beautiful ideas, and tips from across the Internet. These handmade products and blog are for you, my friends. Feel free to link to it ( I Love Christmas Decorating Blog ) try some of my ideas and spread the word to the Christmas 'nutts' in your life. :-)
