My Christmas Tree and a My Besties Image

Hi everybody!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  I did!  I went to my Aunt's house, about 40 minutes away, which is nothing compared to when I had to drive 5 hours from St. Louis to Memphis.  They met my boyfriend for the first time and they really liked him, which I knew they would :)

I wanted to share a My Bestie image that I colored and also my Christmas tree. 

Here is a link to the My Besties store. My Besties store

I wanted to make the presents colorful but someone told me I should've colored them Christmas colors.  What do you think? 

I'll post card when completed.  :)

Okay, now my tree.  I'm at several stores and I'm seeing people carrying armloads of this 21" mesh and I find out they are using it on their Christmas tree so of course I have to try it.  It's called Deco Poly Mesh.  You can also make wreaths with it.  I have an extra roll that is red and green so I think I'll go buy a wreath and make one.  I'll post that too.  So basically you just take the sides and bring them together bunching it up, twist it and I tied it where I twisted it with these things that are like pipe cleaners but Christmas colors.  Then you poof it up and put it where you want it on your tree.  You can go up and down with it, around like garland.  I think I went kind of diagonal but it's however you like it, no right or wrong way.  This is the tree so far.  Today or tomorrow I'll add more ornaments and I bought some picks to try to use as the topper.  I'll post another picture when finished.  So what do you think about this?  

Then I had some red mesh ribbon so I kind of draped it around tree.  I haven't had a tree up in 4 years because my ex husband wouldn't get it from the basement and bring it up for me and it was too heavy for me to so I'm SO happy that I have one this year.  My boyfriend loves to decorate for Christmas.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
