Christmas Tree

I know a lot of people have been saying this, but really, don't you feel like this year has FLOWN by??? I really can't believe that it is December and that Christmas is almost here! Wow!

Not a whole lot of crafting has been going on here. I have started putting up my Christmas decorations, but I haven't even done much with those. I have six comprehensive finals coming up next week, and so really all my focus has been on finishing up all my papers, case studies, and lesson plans, and focusing on FINALS WEEK! I will be SO glad to have another semester of school behind me in two weeks :) YAY for that!!!

Next Christmas will be a SUPER CELEBRATION for me because I will have just finished up my LAST SEMESTER for my bachelors degree!!!!  I can hardly wait!

Anyway, I thought I would at least share the progress I have made on my tree so far since I don't have any crafts to share :)  My tree is 11ft tall, and so it takes a while to decorate it, especially since it is old and I still have to string all the lights, no pre-lite tree for me :(






I am going to try and LINK UP HERE and BLOG HOP HERE this week, if I get time in-between studying for finals :)

Come by on Thursday and LINK UP to THRILLING THURSDAY.  If you didn't have a chance to stop by last week, CLICK HERE to view all the thrilling projects that were linked up!  There is some AMAZING inspiration over there :)

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful tree. I absolutely love tall skinny trees, they give the room such unique character. I'll try to get pics up of my tree tomorrow.
