It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas....Sort Of.

Ok, I'm not going to lie. It does NOT feel like Christmas at all here in Hawaii. I am not used to warm, sunny weather in December. I was feeling sad because I felt like we were missing out on the whole Christmas spirit thing. I finally decided that we just needed some festive decorations. I was debating whether or not we should get a tree. I didn't feel like it was a practical purchase since we were only going to be here for a few years and I didn't want to spend the money. But...I changed my mind and bought one anyway. I have no regrets about it at all. I love it! Even if it doesn't look like Christmas outside, it sure does in our apartment.

I made the garland out of pages from an old book. Courtney gave me her extra red ornaments and I bought the rest from a second hand store. I love my little homemade tree. :)

Here are some close ups:

 I also made this:

It only took 15 book page chapters to make everything...
