Oh Christmas Tree

The tree is up and it's looking like Christmas around our house!!  This year my wish of having a white tree finally came true. Ever since I was little I always wanted a white tree.  And this year I finally got my wish.  

Yes that is a paper fan on top of my tree. I'm obsessed with them, you wouldn't expect anything else would you? 

I hate clutter, most of the time. I like things organized.  I have never been good at decorating a tree because of this. This  year I tried to use mostly garlands to decorate the tree. I made a quick felt garland out of scraps I had. I also used pom pom yarn and white crepe paper that I ruffled. It's not perfect, but that's what I like about it. 

Our upstairs received a little makeover since the last time have seen it. I refurbished a dresser I found at the thrift store and added two ikea cabinets on the side. I am so excited to have more space for craft supplies. 

I think Ali likes sleeping next to the tree. 


  1. What a gorgeous tree! We have yet to put ours up but this has definitely inspired me. <3 xoxo

  2. well this is just perfect!
    i love white trees! my mom got one a few years back, and its so fun to have such a great canvas each year - mostly she has packs of colored ornaments, i think she's going gold this year. :)

  3. Love your tree.... and the new TV wall looks perfect! Love the character the dresser adds.

    Merry Christmas!
