Merry Christmas!

Last week I got off work early and we decorated our Christmas tree. It turned out ok. Next year I'm going to get a 'fraiser fur' as this current tree requires daily vacuuming. Argh! I've also decided that I should not pick out a tree on my own and while stressed out... it's a little crooked. =) All in all, the kids (and us) did a nice job and it's all in the right spirit.

In other news, I have officially completed my associates degree in nursing. =) It was a long pass/fail weekend of no fun. Though I did meet some nice people. I'm still waiting for the official paperwork but........ I'm a nurse now!

Duvet cover finally done!

I think that it turned out pretty well, as long as you don't look too closely at the edges. =) It's rough managing that much fabric thru the sewing machine. I haven't quite decided which color I'll have up, right now I'm going with the gray.

And it's of course important to break it in right away.

Now, I just need to decorate the rest of the room. Maybe starting with some paint on the the walls. Ya know, finally cover that contractor white-tone we have going.
