Preparations For Christmas!

IMG_3451Yesterday and today I made some changed to my girl’s Christmas Tree…first, those green pipecleaners they used to loop through the ornaments to hang on the tree just did NOT look pretty. (Whoops, was I the one that told them to stop using the tinsel to loop through and start using green pipe-cleaners?…..)

IMG_3452Second, I added some pretty green decorative trim decorations to make it look festive. Fun fact  – the “party room” that all the girls have their birthdays and parties at, and what used to be Molly, Josefina and Cecile’s room, then it used to be Jasmine and Emilie, well it’s actually under my desk! I was working on Christmas cards for my dolls last night and I couldn’t really work at my desk with a comfy chair…since..that….Christmas tree was there! XD Second fun fact: I just painted my nails red. I was about to take the picture you see above, when I thought “Oh, wouldn’t it be pretty if I painted my nails for this photo?” and that’s just what I did! It took about ten minutes to dry and harden(poor me, sitting there with nothing to do) but it was worth it. My nails now have a new look and that picture has both green AND red in it! LOL! 🙂 🙂

IMG_3453Third, why on earth would we have a Christmas tree if there weren’t any presents to put under neath and make all the girls wait in suspense for Christmas day? Most of their Christmas presents are MY presents…(haha, even if I gave them to the girls, they would still be mine! LOL!) but I also made Josefina and Jasmine some handmade gifts as you see above.

IMG_3454Fourth, I wanted to add some more ornaments! I actually made al of these at my Aunt Anette’s one day(hurrah! My first time using a hot glue gun.). You see a pretty wreath..

IMG_3455A Christmas tree with a present under it…

IMG_3456And another wreath…

IMG_3457and another! (yikes, sorry if that picture was blurry!)

IMG_3458And then, rummaging through the Christmas decorations bin my family has, I found these adorable silver/glass ornaments, perfectly doll sized, in a pack of six. I stole them from the Christmas bin and used them for my dolls. Mwahahahaaa! Madison strikes again! *sneaky look*

IMG_3460Again I find Christmas ornaments so pretty when they are blurred.. <3

I had so much fun making more Christmas….stuff….and all this week! Gets me in the Holiday spirit! You know, I wonder why we all get presents if it’s Jesus birthday? LOL!

Look out for an upcoming craft on how to make your own doll ornaments! And of course, we got this Christmas tree last year at Target for only eight dollars! Perfectly doll sized!

    Wow! The tree was cute before, but now it’s lovely! 🙂 The little wreaths are so cute, and the bell-things are cool! 🙂 I don’t really have any money, so I don’t think I’ll be able to buy a new doll tree this year, but a 3-foot one’s good enough. 🙂 I’ve got tons of little ornaments we got ages ago when my mom used the tree for our church toddler group. 🙂 Actually, it’s still hers, but I have a better use for it. 😀

      Oh wow, really? So cool! Which ones – the round ball ones, or the clear sparkly ones?

    It looks gorgeous!! I wish I had a doll Christmas tree, but it takes up a lot of space, which I don’t have. 🙁
    Did you do the American Girl Fan Christmas card exchange? I did my card today!! 🙂

      Thanks so much! Aw, that’s sad. 🙁 But at least you still have your dolls! Tree’s don’t really matter.
      Yes! I sent her a handmade Christmas present along with the card. I hope she gets…I sent it to her about two days ago. She’ll probably get it tomorrow!!!

    You’re tree looks lovely, Madison!
    And also, an answer to your question.
    We give gifts to each other on Christmas because God gave us a gift- His Son, Jesus. 🙂

    WHY ME??? molly is sold out. Santa please put your elves to work, they’ve slacked off for a few years, what with all the buy-online stuff. Also, Madi, my dolls are getting nutcrackers, and could you make this comment so that DOLLIES can’t read it?
