It's a Party! #189


Welcome to the party!

Is everyone ready for Christmas? I finished up my shopping this week and actually went to the store today so I could start baking Christmas goodies this weekend. We're supposed to get our first big snow tonight, so I think Greg and I will have a wrapping party.
(He doesn't know that, yet, so let's just keep that little piece of information between us. Okay?)




Link up anything you want to share with us this week. It can be your fabulous craft, yummy recipe, giveaway, shop, etc.

I'll feature the Top 5 most viewed links next Wednesday. I started a board on Pinterest where I pin all of the fabulous features. You can follow along Here.

I would love for you to follow A Creative Princess while you're here!

If you would like to grab an It's a Party button (on the sidebar) and post it on your blog somewhere, that would be great! Let's get the word out and grow this party.
The more the merrier!

We all love comments, so please visit other links and have fun!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Charlie Brown Christmas Tree


I changed our main Christmas tree around this year and I'm loving it.



Instead of all our Hallmark and homemade ornaments, I used burlap ribbon with gold and silver balls.

I'll show you what I did with the other ornaments in a minute, but first let's take a closer look at this little beauty.






The tree skirt is from Hobby Lobby.




Okay, so this whole thing started one day when Greg and I were walking through Wal-Mart and everyone was gathered around one certain tree that they were selling and making fun of it.

That poor little pitiful tree was calling my name.



I brought it home and it now holds so many of our memories. I hung all our Hallmark ornaments and every single ornament that my kids or grandkids have made over all the years. 

It's beautiful to me and I love it more than any other tree in the world!

Have a happy Tuesday!

Santa's Stache Frame


So, the other day I showed you Santa's Belly Hoop and today we have...



Santa's stache!

I wish I could say that I thought of this, but I didn't. It was inspired by this burlap gift bag.



It was in the dollar bin at Michaels. You know the bins, the ones they have by the check-out lanes so you have to pass by everything and of course, you always find something to pick up.

This really was cute and it came in a package of 2 and will fit a gift card perfect.




I loved the bag so much that I wanted to make something else using that phrase.

I found an old frame, put black chalkboard paper behind the glass, and then cut out the vinyl and put it on the front of the glass.





Happy Friday!

It's a Party! #188


Welcome to the party!

I don't know how it happened, but did you realize that Christmas is only 2 weeks away? Are you ready? I still have shopping to do and a few things to finish up that I'm making. Let's not even mention baking and all the wrapping. 

Besides getting ready for Christmas, here's what else has been going on this past week.



Here are the fabulous features from this morning.

That's what I've been up to, now it's your turn.
