Merry Christmas!

So this past week has been cuh-razy! Just lots of little things to finish up and get done, but I'm very happy to say that I'm at a good place. As in, pretty much done! I just have a few more presents to wrap, and a couple of handmade things to put finishing touches on. I feel good. :)

Plus, my house is pretty clean! I KNOW--its a Christmas miracle!! I was feeling so happy last night because I wrapped most of the presents, cleaned my house, got everyone to bed and even had a little time to mess around with some photography! It was heavenly.

Here's some of the stuff I did:

Those are Christmas lights, and I was figuring out how to change the shape of them from plain circles to whatever I wanted (like stars and hearts), get it? It actually wasn't too hard and although they're not exactly right, it was still fun to try and get some good results.

Update: I guess I should clarify, I didn't do the shapes in photoshop, I cut the shape I wanted (star and heart) out of a piece of black paper and put it over my lense, that changes the shape of the lights. Also, my cousin's hair turned out beautifully (if I do say so meself!), the lesson was good too! So all in all, I really have nothing to complain about, how weird! ;) Here's a picture of my cousin, sorry you can't really see her hair, I wasn't in the right mind set to think of taking a picture! (okay, stole some off of Facebook)

And this is what I looked like for the wedding, kind of fun to get dressed up! :)

Now on to the next couple days of fun and craziness! I hope you guys all have a great and amazing Christmas! Wishing you safe travels and no family fighting! ;)


  1. That's awesome that your house is clean and you are almost ready! Hooray! I'm almost there too... I'm off work today so that's what I'm doing - cleaning/wrapping/baking. I promised my hubby cinnamon rolls to take to his HT families tonight...
    I even got to watch a movie in my bed this morning so I'm having a pretty good day too! :)
    I love your stars and hearts. Did you do that in photoshop?
    Also... I've been wondering how the food/hair/lesson went last weekend. I hope it all came out the way you hoped!
    I hope you have a very merry Christmas!
