Never too late (a Procrastinator's Christmas post)

Yep, I admit it I am a procrastinator. That is why I am sharing our Christmas decorations with you on January 24th. Hey, if there is some rule about posting Christmas stuff no later than a month after Christmas, then I at least beat it by one day. This Christmas I decided that I wanted to redo our Christmas decor, but I wanted to do it without spending a lot of money. I got started this year and can just add more as I go. Here are the pictures I took (right before taking everything down). Oh, and no I didn't just take my Christmas decorations down, I just procrastinated on writing about it. A large chunk of my decorations were either handmade this year, or had a handmade element to them. I didn't put together any tutorials about how to do any of these, but if you would like I can put something together for next Christmas. So, without further ado, here is our handmade Christmas.

The tree, and don't worry, I know it is a bad picture.

Some of my tree ornaments

My homemade tree skirt

A couple shots of my favorite part, my railing. Yes, you are seeing the mess of toys on the other side because our house is overrun by a 3 year old and keeping a room clean for more than 5 seconds if just about impossible.

I just had to share the cutest little deer that I found at Pier One this year. I just could not resist these cuties! Neither could Ashlyn since somehow they kept getting moved quite often. 

So, those were our mostly homemade Christmas decorations. There were more, but for some reason I didn't get pictures of them. Oh well life goes on and welcome back to Christmas one month later (or eleven months early) however you want to look at it.
