DIY Giant Glitter Snowflakes

After I showed you part-one of my Christmas decorations, some of you said – wow, you really got your house cleaned up since you showed us the decorating war zone.

And I would like to say – Um. No. I have not. What I DID do was shove all of the piles of crap out of the picture.

I need one of those hotel-bellman trolleys. So I can just load it up and wheel all the junk out of whatever room I want to impress you with.

I guess I could also throw some of this stuff away, but for some reason the bellman trolley seems more practical.

Anyway, it is time to start showing you my glitter mania. Starting with giant DIY snowflakes. They are super fast and easy IF YOU GET YOUR HUSBAND TO MAKE THEM…

Christmas decorating… Part one.

Christmas is to bloggers, what tax season is to accountants.

Except with whimsy, and extravagance, and the need to not do anything anyone else is doing, and with the requirement to have 57,000 ideas that people will want to make and pin and share.

Ideas that will make people envy your home, your creativity, and your general existence on this planet… An existence that has somehow allotted you the free time to create your remarkable home, with your extraordinary creativity, with ease and joy and merriment and not wanting to stab yourself.

Decorating our Victorian home for Christmas... I made the huge snowflakes, you can too!

Christmas decorating war zone.

Christmas mess reached critical mass sometime around Sunday afternoon.

The kind of decorating war zone where you cannot even walk around because every square inch of floor is covered with random crap.

At some point, the ironing board, the sewing machine, the vacuum, a stepstool, the sled, a massive box of garland, and 20 Mason jars were strewn about the dining room.

And that does not even count the boxes of actual Christmas decorations.

Decorating our old Victorian home for Christmas… I go overboard with bows and glitter.

Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
