Our Christmas Tree - 2013

This year I decided to try something a little different with our Christmas Tree. I saw a tree banner in my Pottery Barn catalog and figured why not - I make banners, I like banners, let's put one on the tree. We went back & forth on what it should say and finally decided on...

Merry & Bright! With a little trial & error I came up with the right size (each letter is about 4" tall) and the right color (FYI gold didn't show up). I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the letters out of white glitter paper. I strung the letters on some oversized bakers twine I picked up an Ikea last Christmas.

Here are a few of my favorite ornaments this year...

And of course, a night shot :) After all that is when the tree is at its finest!

This is the first year I haven't used ribbon to wrap my tree... one second I miss the ribbon & feel like the tree is naked. Then the next minute I love the change! Here's a little look back at pictures of our trees in past years... and living rooms of past years. :)
