i've mentioned briefly that i want to do a very simple and homemade celebration for our first christmas in this house. i'm trying very hard not to go buck-wild buying every sparkly thing i see.
...it's been hard, guys.
but...theoretically...i don't just want to go out a buy a houseful of decorations. i want our collection to grow and evolve over time. i want special ornaments that have meaning. i want to look back and associate heartwarming stories with them.
...like that one year i spent days and days furiously making a gazillion bajillion fuzzy pom-poms for a christmas tree garland:
see how i made all these bad boys after the jump!
