    Those Christmas Leftovers 

    I bet you were thinking, if anyone still has leftovers from Christmas, they are slightly Nutty. We are not talking though about food here today.

    You see the last few weeks of the Holiday season went by in such a rush, I was not able to post the actual handmade stuff I did this year. The items were included in my Christmas Decor in my home from a previous post. but I wanted to share them on their own. I did not even get any photos taken that were any good until this past week. I had taken some before Christmas, but somehow they were deleted? ( I still do not do well with my phone camera.) So at least before we leave January, here are the few items I made and had a joy making:

      Great ideas…all of them. I especially like the snowman and I think I must try the Christmas trees next year. A little late, but Happy 2018.

        Yes, I ran out of time. Hopefully next year, but Pinterest gives you so many ideas.

          I know…it’s a blessing and a curse at the same time. I need a gift certificate for more time!!!

      I’m still eating leftover Halloween candy. Fortunately, I always buy chocolate candies so I don’t mind eating them.

    Home for Christmas 

    “Open House” Christmas 2017:



    Sorry, some of my photos are not the best. I barely had time to get this post done let alone edit and my house is so dark on dark days it is hard to get images not facing the window light straight on them. From my house to yours, MERRY CHRISTMAS…

    Also, some things I have had for ages and they are worn and torn. Like the one green book, I have had since childhood. The tree on green is my daughter’s ugly sweater.Some of the items I made this year, though as you can see my room is limited anymore.

      Terrific photographs. They are bright and full of light…it must have been a day filled with sunshine. It’s been dark and cold where I live also…hopefully next week we will thaw out a bit. I LOVE the tree with the branches on the wall. I find it so appealing and sweet…whimsical. Whimsy of all types always appeals to the happiest of sides in me. Have a great 2018.

      The stockings are lovely. I liked seeing your Xmas displays. I just got my first Ugly Christmas Sweater in December. Your daughter’s one with the tree on it is awesome 🙂 Happy 2018 xo

    Window Shopping Easy Christmas Ideas for Kids 

    Here are some photos of easy crafts to do in the last minutes. Great kids crafts and good for adults like me have a hard time doing detail work. LOL, I have even done the mitten one myself to give with gifts many years back. Easy snow globes are elegant. Simple but eye-catching tags. Inexpensive green paper plate tree. Merry Christmas:

    Don’t Want to End Up Like “Frosty” 



    Hoping that the snow does not melt and he ends up like “Frosty.”

    Let It Snow 

     Socks without mates (You know that problem?) were upcycled into little quirky snowmen. I wasn’t totally satisfied with how they turned out, but good enough to use in a couple spots I needed something added in bare spots with my own Christmas decorations.

    12 Days until Christmas.

    They call it a Nerdy Christmas tree. I call it amazingly creative. 

    I found this idea on a blog with the title “Nerdy Trees.” Last Christmas when it was down to the wire with like 1 day left. I fell in love. It was too late to fit it in so I marked it on Pinterest for the next year, which happens to be this year now.

    We never get a tree. I usually just put up small decorations which includes crafty small Deco. trees in the mix of all the bows and glitter.

    But when I saw this , I knew I had to do it. “Hey, it’s free and done with my favorite thing in this world : books.”

    This year as I was GOING to get this ACCOMPLISHED,  I went to the link I had pinned it from,”Nerdy Trees.” Then through that web address I found where this original idea came from. (Hey, this is my kind of creative person here. And they did not say it was nerd like either. lol)

    So it took me about an hour, but I did the book tree. (Wow my kids to their credit have not knocked it over yet-though I have had to straighten the books about 2 x.) When I get a bright day through the window, I will take my own photo of our little tree. but for now…..


    Mine is not as tall and wide, since I to my mortification I have less books which did not really matter; the space I had to put mine in is way smaller which necessitated some changes.


    Here is the photo and link for the standard of this tree.

        I have a really frugal camera so have to wait for the sun to come out. Thanks for the comment.

        My kids knocked it down until it looked like Charley Brown’s tree. sorry i did not get one posted.

      It’s clever! A recycled, recycled tree!

    • ChildishMan 9:26 pm on December 7, 2012 Permalink | Reply

      I love it. Maybe I’ll try it. Hmm…put the tomes of collected Hemingway, Melville and Dickens at the bottom as a good base. Then on goes some David Foster Wallace and maybe some Welty, O’Connor and Franzen. Eh, maybe not the Frazen – too neurotic. Huh. I don’t remember putting any Rowling in there. Oh who the hell put on this Secret Life of Bee’s crap? You people are totally ruining my yule-book-tree mojo here!

      My cats would sit at the top and still find a way to knock this over. But I really love this idea.

        See the reply above, cats aside, my kiddos did it for me. Fun while it lasted.
