Will this craziness ever die down? Probably not! But I come bearing sparkly Christmassy outfits.
I tried cropping/editing on my phone, but I think I was better off NOT doing that. Blah. Phones are super easy for updating, but maybe I should get back into the camera habit? Or get better at editing on the phone. I hope the adorablness of these outfits aren’t lost in grainyness!

Sparkly and cute for one last mall trip for my very last present! Liss and I met up and had a wonderful time. It was busy, but not crazy, and very festive. Also, you know, I totally bought myself a dress. And two Lush bathbombs. Because they were in my budget and it’d been a long month.

AUGH BLURRY. I may have to dig around and see if there’s a nonblurry version. I love how this came out! I sort of recreated the dressing room outfit from when I tried on this skirt and grabbed the green top just to have something to wear with it – and of course, the green has become a staple in my wardrobe year round. I love the peek of green at the top. And the hairband was bought in the city the day before – 2 for $4!! It’s braided 2 strands of faux-leather with one strand of sparkles, one is cream and the other a light rose. Love them.
Is it cool to wear gold sparkle fishnets when it’s not the holiday season? Enquiring minds wish to know.

I need more vintage Christmas pins. I had some in my Etsy shopping cart all month and it just never happened. Oh, well, next year. This is what I wore for my city Christmas adventures – German market and symphony brass. I swear that I bought the symphony ticket because it was brass Christmas, but it was just brass. Brass memoriums, even, which didn’t help my need for festivity. LOL But there was this glorious song from the 1500s that I loved, plus a wonderful number created for the 50th anniversary of Iwo Jima which took us musically through the whole conflict. I also enjoyed the piece devoted to our local science lab, complete with sounds from the machines there – it was very Doctor Who.

I love how this came out, so hard! It was perfect, exactly how I wanted it to in my head. Things don’t always, and this one felt especially good.
My Christmas card section! Minus 6 that didn’t fit, and I was too lazy to put up more ribbon last night. I got this idea from pinterest last year, and I love it for display purposes.
(Also, I totally want a muff this year. I am finding them even more charming than usual. I sort of covet the one on the third ribbon, heh.)
I FINALLY sat down Thursday night to do my cards. It’s been killing me that I hadn’t gotten them out, since I love doing them. I still have six to do, for the people I normally make cards for. It may be that I mail the storebought on Monday for them, whoops, unless I find the energy to create them this weekend. Sorry, guys. I do love you, even though you’ll get your cards after the 25th. And they still won’t even be handmade. xo
