I have a long list of things to do, which consists of cutting out snowflakes and stringing them along, as well as making garland out of old books. Not sure what I'll have time for since our daughter is quite rambunctious and tears apart everything I put up!
My management of Christmas is going along nicely, though... for our table centerpiece, I've placed felt underneath homemade trees, candles and a bundle of jute (did I mention that I love jute?) I made the trees last year out of holiday scrap paper and ribbon/yarn. So much fun and very interesting to decorate with. The idea came from a book I browsed at Michael's: The Handmade Home, www.thehandmadehome.net -- great inspiration!
Rather than place one item on the table, I decided to go with a literal 'runner' of decorations since I couldn't decide which I liked best. Actually, all of these things look better together than apart.
