Project 365 ~ Week 50…Oh my Stars the year is almost over!

Tis the season….to totally not take any pictures……

All the Christmas business has occupied my time with other things. However now that I am done I am looking forward to just enjoying the rest of the time until Christmas!

Friday, December 9

I was shocked the other day when I was finishing up he last of my Christmas shopping. As I have mentioned before I am on a quest to try to be as “Made in the USA” as possible this Christmas. Can I tell ya it is not easy. Trying to find the where something is manufactures is a chore and trying to find the labeling on the packages can be even more difficult. I am surprised at just how many products have no indication on the labels what so ever as to where they are manufactures. Some even go as far as to simple state that the item is “imported” but neglect to state where it is imported from.

However when I picked up this roll of wrapping paper in nice big bold labeling right across the front it read “Made in the USA”. It was $2.44 and it even has the cutting grid on the back…..very helpful! I love it!


Muffinhead was at home with her dad this morning so I seized the moment and got the last few bits of my decorations up. I also got a lot of my wrapping done. My house is as decorated as it is going to get, my tree is finished, the mantel is done and all my major shopping is done! What does this mean…..it means that I am officially done with all my Christmas preparations. There may be some holiday baking a bit closer to the actual day and I may have to make a run out for a gift I forgot to pick up, I always manage to forget to get one or two…..but the feeling of being done is wonderful!

That tree is ginormous! How did you decorate the top? with a ladder?! But it's absolutely beautiful, as are your other decorations. I'm so enjoying seeing everyone's Christmas!

Have a wonderful week!

Well, there might just be two, but the second one is so fabulous that it makes up for it!
