i quickly snapped a photo of my christmas card tree this morning, with it's one card clipped on. [barb, the photo in your card spoke volumes to me!! thank you!]
i am hurrying to get out of town for a quick business trip this afternoon, so i'm feeling very rushed and out-of-sorts. when i stop home to pick up my bag, i will leave a special treat for my mailwoman. i'll have to come back to post a photo of that, and a photo of myself for that matter.
what is it that makes going out of town (even for a quick trip) a frenzy?!?
here is the card tree that i made several years ago. i saw a photo of something similar in a magazine, and was feeling particularly crafty that year. (this was even before i was dating matty, so we're talking 10 years ago or more!) it wasn't until the tree was painted, assembled, and sunk in a pail of concrete (for stability) that i realized the inspiration piece was a tabletop tree!! probably 1/4 the size of the one i created. (who overlooks a detail like that?!?)
but i love my tree, and i am so thankful that each year it gets totally smothered with cards from family and friends. i can't wait to watch it fill up this year, too!
it may look a little bit like *charlie brown's christmas tree* right now, but just you wait!!
