joy to the world!


This is a pretty version of what my life looked like last week: bakers twine + printed-out maps + modge podge + styrofoam balls + styrofoam cones + three 5-lb. bags of starlight mints + half-a-hundred hot glue sticks + hours spent tracking online orders + pre-cut snowflakes (thank goodness) + mini red & white ricrac + not-so-mini red & white ricrac + nails terribly in need of a manicure + thumbtacks + spray snow + martha's alphabet + red ornaments + clear ornaments + swirled ornaments + mini globey ornaments + coconut flakes + a hundred thousand errands + the help of the immensely talented and so-fun-to-work-with Muranda, and (ta da!), the ONEiTY store is looking pretty cute, if I do say so myself.

Joy to the world! And did I mention how cute and classy the holiday collection is?

* Note to self: Never leave home without your hot glue gun. It will save the day.

I love the starlight mints! Very gingerbread-house-ish

The globes are a brilliant idea. Wish I had thought of it! But there's still time for me to make some, as my tiny tree is undecorated.

You're writing AND decorating for them? I hope they know what a goldmine they've got in you! I better come and see this adorable store!

P.S. I love the jammies. Almost makes me wanna have a little one to fit in them. Will they fit a dog?
