the lights came out. (and so did some not so merry words)
so did the gold spray paint. gold spray paint = DEFINITELY merry.
i grabbed a handful of studio calico veneer to paint while i was at it.
the tree hasn't come out yet, but we found a place for this star so we could have a little sparkle (target. $15. you're welcome ;))
i'm still trying to wrap my head around being ready for the holiday season (read : i am SO NOT READY). i'm opting to stick to baby steps. lights. spray paint. light up stars. i can handle that. i even managed to order cards last night (expiring black friday codes = great motivation). maybe i've got this.
a little PSA before i go - for 24 hours only (so until 11:59pm EST tonight), studio calico is running a crazy deal on the silhouette cameo. i've had mine for 2 years, and my only regret is not buying it sooner. you may want to pass this info along to santa. ;)
